The Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Dark Pumpkin Mead Perfume Oil is one of several new perfume oils that the Lab has launched for Halloween 2013. Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab (Bpal) or the Lab as fans fondly call it releases an extensive array of gorgeous perfume oils for the Fall season that are available for a limited time and Dark Pumpkin Mead happens to one.
Take a look!
Housed in a 5ML glass alchemy bottle you might think this is tiny for the price but many of the fragrances from the lab are very potent so a dab is all you need for strong linger and throw.
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Dark Pumpkin Mead is a pumpkin mead mixed with clover honey and maple to add sweetness.
Lab fragrances are tricky little devils sometimes because scents such as this one kinda smell awful in the bottle but dab them on your skin and they dry down beautifully. At first sniff this has a boozy sweetness in the bottle that kinda smells as if liquor gone off a bit…but once you apply it pumpkin dominates the scent with plenty of fall spiciness you’d associate with the season!
Now what really gives the oil it’s uniqueness would be the addition of maple. You always think cinnamon and pumpkin traditionally right? I don’t think maple really factors into my thoughts of pumpkin or at least I don’t think of maple and pumpkin as commonly as I do cinnamon combined with pumpkin! Maple adds a very sweet yet warm element to the blend. It plays really nicely with the pumpkin and the tone goes golden….I just picture a pumpkin dripping with warm maple syrup when I wear the scent.
I think the mead doesn’t really come out here so don’t worry about there being a boozy note to the fragrance. If anything it’s sweet and unusual for the Fall! The maple really adds a beautiful note that deepens through the wear and becomes warmer and warmer.
If you’re looking for a Fall scent that’s a little different from traditional cinnamon and pumpkin notes I think Dark Pumpkin Mead is an ideal pick. It has beautiful notes that capture the Autumn season perfectly. The scent works perfect now and will continue to work well into November as we head deeper into the season.
Well worth indulging in.
