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.
