I’ve had the oddest luck with some of BPAL’s Halloweenies this year. They’ve all gone kinda floral on me. I typically haul hard during Halloween at the Lab because they release considerably more “foody” scents around the Fall than any other time of the year but I’m seriously having a body chemistry issue lately because they go more floral on me than foody….!
Punkie Night is another blend that went wrong on me this year!
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab or BPAL as known by its fans is the creator of unique and obscure fragrance oils. Each year they create a limited edition seasonal range of Halloween Fragrance Oils to celebrate not only the Halloween but Harvest and Fall.
Punkie Night is in mmm probably its third to fourth run now. It was introduced probably around 2008? But don’t quote me I could be utterly off there….so far I have three versions counting this years.
The notes include apple orchards, bright cranberries, and warm cider. Years past my versions have always had a warm cider scent with plenty of apple. This year the apple orchard seems to take a dominate step into the fragrance, it’s almost an apple blossom-like scent which is more floral than fruity. The spiciness I got from other renditions of the fragrance doesn’t seem to be here this year.
Sniffing from the bottle you get crisp candy-like cranberry but upon contact with my skin the scent morphs and becomes less sweet. I get a bit of incense to it (this has been known to happy with certain fragrance oils from Bpal) and subtle floral that can only be associated with apple blossom.
I actually don’t love how it reacted with my body chemistry….thankfully I can fall back on the oils from years past because this year’s Punkie Night didn’t have the same effect for me.
