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.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Red Bpal Fragrance Oil Review

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.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Mokey Fragrance Oil Review

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.

Let’s take a look at her fragrance.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Uncle Traveling Matt Perfume Oil

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!

What’s Uncle Matt’s fragrance like?

Take a look!
