Alice is a lab favorite for many a fine year. From my understanding the Mad Tea Party oils have always been a fond favorite of Beth’s, creator and founder of Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs as well.

Let’s take a look!

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Mouse Circus Review

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Mouse Circus

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.

Yes.

Do love.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Doozers Perfume Oil Review

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Doozers Perfume Oil

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.

Shrug!

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.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Cthulhu in Love for Valentine’s Day 2013

Cthulhu in Love

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.
