Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Sugar Skull Halloween 2012 Review

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Sugar Skull Halloween 2012 3

Ah you might have heard me whisper the joy of Sugar Skull in your ears before. It’s one of several limited edition fragrances from the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, creator of unique fragrance oils!

Each year the Lab dishes out a slew of hand blended fragrance oils in a variety of complex scents to celebrate Halloween.

Sugar Skull has been in my rotation for many a year and I have several bottles under my belt but I continue to buy it year after year as it seems to have a slight change each year that I enjoy discovering.

Take a look!

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Wembley Fragrance Oil Review

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Wembley

As you know Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab released a Fraggle inspired collection of fragrance oils recently. Not familiar with the Fraggles? OMG! You’re missing out. YouTube them, promise you’ll love them. They just don’t make children’s entertainment like this anymore.

I was excited to say the least when I heard the Lab was teaming up with the Jim Henson Company to create not only Fraggle blends but also Labyrinth ones. I’m curious if at some point they’ll do a Muppet Collection or even a Dark Crystal one (how awesome would that be? Doctor Bunsen Honeydew would obviously smell amazingballs right?).

I recently reviewed Gobo for you and I thought that Wembley would be the perfect follow up to that review since he is Gobo’s BFF.

P.S. Congrats to my reader Michou. She wrote me today to say she got a job and today’s her first day. She was unemployed for a little bit so it was with great happiness, joy, and relief that I read her e-mail today! I hope you’ll join me in wishing her much success!

Take the jump for my review.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Fragrance Oil Gobo Review

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Fragrance Oil Fraggles

I’m heading down to Fraggle Rock today kids with the new Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Fragrance Oil in Gobo.

I dunno about you but I grew up with Henson madness. Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, the Muppets, Tale of the Bunny Picnic, and of course the Fraggles were on my playlist rotation as a child.

Needless to say when I discovered the Lab was creating fragrance oils inspired by the Fraggles I was all over the idea. I was ready to dance my cares away….!

Gobo being the unofficial “leader” of the Fraggle gang (some would say Mokey but she’s more of an adviser isn’t she?) I decided to try him first.

Lady Gaga Fame Eau de Parfum Review

Lady Gaga Fame Eau de Parfum 1

Rumors of blood, sex, semen, and even Gaga’s own DNA peppered the launch of Lady Gaga Fame Eau de Parfum. Just like the enigmatic Gaga herself, this launch was clouded in all sorts of mystery and rumors that had us eager to get a sniff of what sort of perfume creation this eccentric celeb would create.

Lady Gaga spend over two years creating Fame with Haus Laboratories. It’s one of the first ever black eau de parfume formulas. The innovative fluid technology is black, like the soul of fame Gaga proclaims, but becomes invisible when airborne.

Fame isn’t limited to an Eau de Parfume launch, it also includes Shower Gel, Body Lotion Limited Edition Soap (shaped like a black egg no less), and rollerball. The scent is built around three master accords that are dark, sensual, and light.

Does the Fame perfume live up to the legendary Lady Gaga herself?

Take a look!
