My x-boyfriend used to tell me I smelled like a Carnival, bakery, and sweet shop all rolled into one and that was fine by me. I love foody sweet fragrances and I always migrate towards them. They aren’t everyone’s thing but they are mine. Cinnamon buns, lollipops, strawberries…anything sweet and foody I’m all over.
That’s why Black Phoenix Mouse Circus Fragrance Oil is such a ME scent.
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.
Sephora’s Disney Jasmine Collection released this week to Beauty Insiders along with the new A Whole New World Eau De Parfum Spray.
Eep! There’s definitely a need to collect ’em all vibe from these collections. If you have Cinderella’s So This is Love Perfume I imagine A Whole New World will make its way into your stash at some point. That is, of course, if you’re as diseased as I am and just need to collect them all!
If you think I’m bad with beauty you should see my with comic books and action figures. WORST!
I didn’t love Cinderella’s scent as I felt it was a little too mature and floral. Jasmine’s is quite soft and delicate and no sadly does not contain her namesake in the notes, sorry about that.
Take a look!
The new Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Temptation Eau de Parfum is my Valentine’s Day scent of the day. This tantalizing mix of passion flower, Moroccan jasmine, and blushing orchid is positively addicting and has incredible throw and linger on a single spritz.
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, creator of obscure, unique fragrance oils, launched a Fraggle Rock Perfume Oil Collection a few months ago. I’ve been reviewing the collection for you the last several weeks and came across some fond Fraggle-y fragrances in the collection.
I’m old enough to remember when Fraggle Rock was on HBO and quite have fond memories of watching it (as an adult I even have the DVDs, should I admit that? Probably not!).
Red was a Fraggle I loved to hate. On one hand her positive, perky personality was quite inspiring but did you ever notice she had a slight case of bi-polar? Seriously, girlfriend was happy and energetic one minute and sad and dishearten the next. Poor, confused Fraggle.
At least her fragrance isn’t all over the damn scale.
