Doozers is one of the several Black Phoenix Aclhemy Lab Perfume Oils inspired by Fraggle Rock. BPAL launched a Fraggle Collection a few months ago and I’ve been slowing reviewing each one.
Being a fond fan of the Fraggles these perfume oils definitely tickled me as must have items. Perhaps I’m giving away my age but I remember watching the Fraggle as a child, needless to say after Jim Henson passed all of his muppet creations just weren’t the same. Just a note, as much as I am in love with and willing to have Jason Segel’s baby I couldn’t watch more than 15 minutes of him singing in the new Muppet Movie….I couldn’t finish it. It was cringe worthy. Did I miss anything good?
Now about those Doozers….
Doozers have the most thankless job in the world. They are tiny little green critters, quite cute, who spend long days constructing intricate roads, buildings, bridges, and more made from radish dust. Now here are these hard working critters creating these super elaborate buildings and in come Fraggles who basically destroy and eat those buildings. WTF!? Thankless job I tell you! But the Doozers don’t seem to mind as if the Fraggles didn’t eat their work they’d run out of building space!
Still if I broke my back making something and someone came in crushed and ate it I’d be all kinds of pissed.
There was actually one episode in the series where one Fraggle, maybe Red? Who proceeded to boycott eating their buildings because she realized how hard they worked but it turned out the Doozers would have to move away from Fraggle Rock and possibly die if they couldn’t build. So in the end….these little green creatures slave away creating radish dust buildings for a buncha Fraggles.
I dunno…as a kid it seemed logical as an adult I’m sitting here thinking WTH!?
Let’s just get on with the perfume review. My brain hurts trying to understand Henson logic.
I admit the Doozers were one of my favorite characters. They were so cute but there voices were shockingly New York accented, “Hey, Yo, forgettaaboutit!” Shrug! You’d expect a cute voice to come out of that little body.
BPAL describes this as glittering crystals, soft soil, and radish dust. That’s actually kinda right…I mean if glittering crystals smell like a clean, fresh ozone….this has a fresh ozone-y note on first application with a dry down that goes laundry-fresh…kinda cotton-y….in the back ground you can definitely smell freshly turned dirt and a hint of radish. There’s a little bit of baby powder as well!
I actually don’t like the scent. I like fresh blends but I’m not a big freshly laundry-ed fragrance fan unless Clean is the one doing it. This basically has a powdery dry down with a fresh laundry scent with a surprisingly playful twist of sweet radish. It’s very fresh and clean smelling…
It also happens to be very strong. The scent has a long linger and a fairly good throw.
If you like clean, fresh, slightly ozone scents that remind you of sheets drying on the line during a Summer-y day you’ll probably adore this!
