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.
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.
I purchased some of The Bathing Garden Body and Hair Mists during the Halloween 2014 update recently! The Bathing Garden Body and Hair Mist is actually a new product that the indie brand offers (I’m sure you’ve heard me rave on and on about their tarts and more recently their whipped soap and their scrubs!) and ended up grabbing two of them recently when the shop opened for a Halloween sale.
The bad news is the two scents featured in my review are not available but the good news is the shop has reopened with new Holiday inspired fragrances in both the Body and Hair Mist formula as well as in the scrubs, whipped soap, and wax melts/tarts.
Let’s take a look!
Hey Harajuku Lovers! Gwen Stefani debuts her new Harajuku Lovers Pop Electric Fragrance tomorrow, love on HSN! The five new Harajuku Lovers Perfumes will make an appearance during a two hour
Primetime Special featuring Gwen Stefani showing off her new cute fragrances.
As a fan of the Harajuku Lovers, I’m pretty excited about their return! Best part? The five Harajuku Lovers Pop Electric Fragrances will launch in an HSN exclusive set featuring 1 oz bottles of each Eau de Parfum so no need to settle on a single fragrance as you can get all five in this set!
Take a look!
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!
It’s that time of the year again kids! The Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Halloweenies 2014 arrive with a bang! I already placed three orders…..what? I adore Halloween. I also shot out my Gucci Makeup budget on the Lab’s newest Halloween blends but hey, it was so worth it…!
Needless to say I look forward the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Halloweenies ever year! The lab creates some of the best perfume oils around and I think there limited edition oils are some of the best especially the Halloween ones.
Here’s what is on offer for Halloween this year at the Lab!
