Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Suck It 2014 Review

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Suck It 2014

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Suck It 2014 is a repromoted, limited edition Halloween 2014 Perfume Oil. I remember my first edition of Suck It, don’t quote me was 2012 and I ended up disliking the dry down.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Suck It 2014 seems to finally get the notes down just right and the beautiful sweet, cherry candy-like scent wins a score on my possible “back up purchase list”.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Captain Lilith and Her First Mate Review

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Captain Lilith and her First Mate

Every year Beth and Ted, owners of the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, create a series of limited edition perfume oils celebrating their daughter, Lilith’s, birthday! What a great way to celebrate a child’s birthday and something, year’s from now, she can look back on. Each oil is inspired by events in Lilith’s life for that year. It’s kinda special because if you’re a fan of the Lab’s fragrance oil you kinda get a little piece of Lilith’s life with each oil!

Beth created her oils and they are available for a limited time on the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab. Ted’s oils actually make an appearance on the Lab’s sister site, Black Phoenix Trading Post, which is where collectibles, oils, soaps, candles, t-shirts, and more can be purchased. Ted’s oils were actually the most appealing to my nose so I purchased three of the seven he created.

One I didn’t purchase was “A Stroll Through The Quarter” but his little blurb on it was so touching that I thought I’d share, “People are always asking me, “Why do you carry Lilith on your shoulders all the time?” My answer is….simply because I love her. Someday she won’t want me to pick her up, and it will break my heart. “Pick me up, daddy!” will always be answered with a yes.” I thought it was really beautiful and also fitting because there are just so many times you’ll see a photo of Lilith and Ted together shared on across Beth’s social media and in most cases Lilith is indeed atop her dad’s shoulders in it.

Sniff.

One I did purchase that was very appealing to my pirate good nature (Hey, you’re either a pirate or a ninja in this world! And I happen to be pirate! Yo ho yo ho and a bottle of rum me maties!) was Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Captain Lilith and her First Mate!

These are my thoughts on the fragrance.

Benefit Bathina All Over Me Scented Body Mist Review

Benefit Bathina All Over Me Mist

As a huge fan of Maybe Baby I was beyond excited about the Benefit Bathina All Over Me Scented Body Mist ($30) that launched recently for the Fall/Holiday 2014 season. First off, I adore Bathina! Each new Bathina piece gets added happily to my Benefit Collection and I have some really old pieces that over 12 years old or so when I first started collecting Benefit Cosmetics.

Benefit actually released a rather fab Bathina Soft to Touch Hard to Get Body Oil Mist last year and as much as I love it I actually prefer more of a fragrance mist so Benefit Bathina All Over Me couldn’t come at a better time especially since I miss Maybe Baby so very much!
