Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Pralines and Powdered Sugar Perfume Oil is yet another fragrance celebrating the birth of Lilith, Ted and Beth’s daughter (owner’s of the Lab). This delicious fragrance promises the scent of praline ice cream and beignet dust! Mmmm I’m such a fan of foodie fragrance oils so of course, I purchased this!
The Etude House Bohemian Soul Fantastic Color Eyes is a new six pan eyeshadow palette that launched for Fall 2014. I’m a big fan of Etude House’s Eyeshadow Palettes so I was happy to grab up one of the two shades available in the Fantastic Color Eyes Collection!
Let’s take a look!
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.
