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.
When I was in the 7th grade I fell in love with the Cthulhu. Yeah, that sounded slightly weird and possibly a lead in for a Japanese fan girl hentai moment. Sorry, let me correct that, I fell in love with Lovecraft. It all started out with me being a terrible bookworm you see. I was all about reading R.L. Stine and other supernatural teen rubbish.
My teacher at the time duly noted my odd addiction to trashy supernatural novels and encouraged it by introducing me to some great works of literature. To this day I blame her for my odd love affair with Victor Frankenstein, of course, Sting might have helped a LITTLE bit as well.
7th grade year was also the year she introduced me to many of H.P. Lovecraft’s smaller stories and novels. Being an avid reader of Heavy Metal for over twenty years now you could imagine that H.P. Lovecraft’s “Weird Tales” were terribly appealing to my need for anything horrifying and unusual.
Heck by the time I was of age I was positive I’d be a perfect attendee for Miskatonic University.
Needless to say I’ve grown up a little and at this point in life anything with words on it I’ll pretty much read but I still so adore anything Cthulhu related. From old D&D references to new gaming ones, the Cthulhu Mythos has always had a spot in my heart.
Being terribly romantic I’d say the reintroduction of the Lab’s Cthulhu in Love Perfume Oil is a perfect V-Day treat to tell the one you care about how truly in love you are with them.
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.
Another day, another Fraggle Rock Perfume Oil review from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab. Today’s scent, Mokey. As you know the Lab has created eight fragrances inspired by the 80′s show from Jim Henson, Fraggle Rock.
Although Gobo is the leader of the pack I’ve always though of Mokey as the unofficial leader and caregiver of the Fraggles. She’s kinda older and wiser and acts as a mother and guidance counselor all in one. When someone is sad, worried, or having a perplexing problem (seriously, how problematic can it be being a Fraggle? That life must be cool as hells!), Mokey is typically there to offer advice, a friendly hand, and an ear.
I’ve been reviewing the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Fraggle Rock Collection for you recently. This Fraggle inspired collection has a perfume oil inspired by each of the popular characters in the show. If you’re an 80′s baby you remember the classic Henson show for kids that premiered on HBO.
The Fraggles were part of my childhood so I was delighted when the Lab teamed up with Henson Studios to create this collection. Known for their popular perfume oils the Lab has created an entire range of fragrances inspired by those fuzzy, lovable Fraggles.
What would the Fraggles be like without Uncle Traveling Matt? Uncle Matt set out from Fraggle Rock to venture into our world and explore all the offerings amongst the human race while making sure to send a postcard to his beloved nephew, Gobo each week!
I’ve had the oddest luck with some of BPAL’s Halloweenies this year. They’ve all gone kinda floral on me. I typically haul hard during Halloween at the Lab because they release considerably more “foody” scents around the Fall than any other time of the year but I’m seriously having a body chemistry issue lately because they go more floral on me than foody….!
Punkie Night is another blend that went wrong on me this year!
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab is the creator of a variety of unique perfume oil blends and creates wonderful limited edition seasonal blends. The Halloweenies are a particular favorite of mine since Fall/Halloween is my favorite Holiday/Season.
I hope by now you’re enjoying your Bpal Halloweenies 2012. I placed my own order on launch and got them towards the end of September so I have plenty of time to enjoy them through the Fall and Halloween season.
Suck It isn’t a new blend by any means as it’s been released before at the Lab but this is actually my first time purchasing it for some reason.
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.
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!
Fall is so here for me today. I’m busy stocking up on home fragrance today and I’m also delighted, absolutely delighted to share with you the fact that the Lab’s Halloweenie blends have launched
Many of you are familiar with my love of BPAL but those who are not and simply love Halloween must race over and take a peek at some of the new (and old favorite) fragrances they have introduced for Halloween/Fall 2012.
These fragrance oils come in 5ML glass alchemy bottles and are quite potent. Each scent is utterly unique and really evokes the start of Fall for me.
I grew up watching the Fraggles. I’d like to say it was just around the time that my parents had gotten cable, whoa, TV without commercials, it was a big deal. Why does saying that make me feel so damn old?
Needless to say puppets, clowns, etc…we’re always so terribly scary to me but Jim Henson had a way of making puppets so less terrifying and utterly enjoyable for me!
As you know from a prior post I did, indie brand Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab recently teamed up with Henson Studios to collaborate on a Labyrinth fragrance collection. With great joy, today I bring you the second collection in the launch, the Fraggles fragrance collection!
Each scent is inspired by the gang including Red, Boober, and even Uncle Traveling Matt himself!
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab has launched their Labyrinth Collection much to my delight. I went through my childhood (and into my adulthood) with plots and plans to marry Jareth. I, of course, like any good Labyrinth fan thought that Sarah was a complete a-hole for not joining Jareth as the Queen of his Goblin Kingdom. Bitch please, how are you going to say no to Jareth in those tights? Toss the baby, get the hot British Goblin King girl! Who needs a baby? They cry, poo, and spit up how can you trade that for tight, loaded jodhpurs, an accent, and an entire kingdom of god damn muppets!
Jareth, Goblin King of hotness, currently resides over one of my bookshelves in action figure format awaiting the day I come to my senses and realize how I’m much to old for this crap.
Needless to say I’ve seen Labyrinth way too many times. Beth, creator and founder, of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab obviously understands and obsesses over these geeky things too as she’s created a Labyrinth Collection of her perfume oil blends all inspired by the film.
