It’s my favorite time of the year. Fall, leaves, pumpkins, my own upcoming birthday, and of course, Lilith’s birthday! Lilith is the daughter of Elizabeth and Ted, co-founders of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab. If you’ve been reading Musings of a Muse for a while you likely have read reviews on perfume oils from the Lab that date back as far as 2007. I’ve been buying, collecting, and wearing perfume oils from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab for around 10 years now and one of my favorite seasonal collections from them is the limited edition Halloween fragrances. Six years ago Beth gave birth to a gorgeous little girl and each year she celebrates the joy of motherhood (and Ted the joy of fatherhood) with a selection of limited edition fragrances that are truly treasured scents and very worth hauling.
For me they are particularly delightful scents because many of them are foody in nature and I’m all about sweet, foody, and fruity scents. Not only do I enjoy the oils but I’m always terribly touched by the lovely blurbs of memories that Elizabeth and Ted write for each perfume oil describing special moments and milestones in Lilith’s life!
So here we are yet another year with another round of lovely birthday perfume oils in honor of Lilith.
If you’re a lover of perfume oils you’ll adore some of these scents!
Beth’s Perfume Oil Ode to her Daughter Lilith
A Vast Similitude Interlocks All
Eternally lapping ocean waves at sunset, touched by the pale pinkish amber of the setting sun.
Battle Fairy in Training
Blue cotton candy, strawberries, a plop of vanilla icing and a bit of crushed peppermint candy.
Blood and Judgment So Well Commedled
Soft brown leather and brushed suede with bourbon vanilla, toasted almond, tonka bean, and amber.
Fallen leaves, and soft woods swirled with an ethereal mist of white sandalwood, lilac, orris root, and moonflower.
Give Me Thy Breath, My Sister
Honey cotton candy, with hints of mint, sugar crystals, and a hint of crisp, bog-moist greenery.
Meus Amor Aeternus
A cotton candy-suffused blend of Snake Oil and Dorian, touched by earthy green moss and raiz de moras, hope-filled vanilla bean, sweet honey, and joyous carnation
Little Lady Macbeth
Sugared red currant and honey cake.
Muse of Fire
Rainbow-hued flower petals dusted in sugar.
My Baby and a Baby Goat
Fuzzy baby goat musk, goat’s milk accord, wild rice flower, and a little bit of farmer’s market honey.
Strawberry bubblegum against a backdrop of chilly wind.
Sticky Eyeballs and Floppy Entrails
Strawberry licorice whips and oozing pink jelly.
Walking the Prime Meridian
Ancient oaks and deep green mosses dampened by rain and sea salt.
Ted’s Perfume Oil Ode to his Daughter Lilith
Catch Me, Dad
A whiff of the lavender Lilith loves to use in her hair, and the green leaves of summer just turning to autumn’s russet and brown.
Rum-flavored candies, caramel, pirate tobacco, sugar cane, and vanilla beans.
Popcorn and jelly beans.
Hot chocolate with marshmallows!
Once Upon a Time
French lavender, hops, yarrow, Roman chamomile, and a drop of vanilla.
The Worst Pillow
A fluffy coffee scent, all pillowy vanilla, caramel, and roasted beans.
Not-healthy breakfast cereals, spilled milk, a smushed bit of banana, and the last gloopy bits of latte foam.
