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.
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!
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Samhain 2013 Perfume Oil is the traditional limited edition Halloweenie fragrance from the Lab that comes back every year! If you’ve felt like up until now that the Halloweenies are just a touch too foody Samhain brings you back to a more soothing, warming Fall scent with earthy notes and just the gentlest touch of pumpkin!
Take a look!
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Ooky Perfume Oil is one of several new Halloweenie Perfume Oils that are available for a limited time from the dear old Lab. Ooky originates from the British slang for unpleasant, off, weird, unusual but Ooky Perfume Oil is anything but!
It’s pumpkin and spice and everything nice about the Fall! If there was every a scent to embody Fall it would be Ooky (oh wait, I say that about all the foody-like perfume oils from the Lab don’t I?).
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Boober Perfume Oil is one of several perfume oils that the Lab cocktailed up to celebrate our childhood friends the Fraggles. Ahhh take me back the the 80’s!
Boober is the more unusual of the Fraggles…he’s paranoid, superstitious, and scared of his own shadow! He’s always worried about disease, doom, and has a variety of phobias. Yeah, this show is for kids, honest!
For whatever reason Boober finds joy in doing laundry…hey, we all have our simple pleasures right? This scent smells like clean like freshly washed laundry.
Take a peek!
