I guess it must be Fall now that the official launch of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Halloweenies 2013 is here! Launched late last week this selection of Halloween and Fall inspired perfume oils is one of my favorite launches of the entire year. It was a little late coming this year since the BPAL gang was out a conning!
But it’s here now and that’s all a fangirl like me needs.
If you love Halloween I’m sure some of these lovely fragrance oils will be added to your cart.
If you’ve never tried Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Perfume Oils or BPAL as known by its fans you’re in for a treat. They have an entire catalog of hundreds and hundreds of scents inspired by a wide variety of wonderful things! Each year they put out a rather massive selection of Halloween inspired perfume oils. All of BPAL’s oils are housed in a 5ML alchemy glass bottle and are meant to be used in tiny dabs since they are concentrated fragrance oil and have a rather hard throw and linger.
They do quite a few seasonal collections for Christmas and even Valentine’s Day but my favorite is Halloween!
Here are some of the scents they have launched this year:
A World Where There Are Octobers
An armload of maple boughs and a swirl of autumn leaves.
All Souls 2013
An incense blend that invokes the higher qualities of mercy and compassion, mingled with the soft, sugared currant scent of offertory soul cakes.
Dry grasses bathed in amber light, muted by gentle shadows.
Day of Skulls
White sandalwood, beeswax, and frankincense crowned by hydrangea, rose, and kantuta blossoms, dressed with tobacco, cocoa leaves and flowers from the sacred Cactus of the Four Winds.
Dark Pumpkin Mead
Thick, heady pumpkin mead sweetened with clover honey and a hint of maple.
Dia de Los Muertos 2013
Funeral bouquets, the candies, chocolates, foods and tobacco of the ofrenda, amaranth, sweet cactus blossom and desert cereus.
Flor de Muerto 2013
Flowers that surround Day of the Dead altars to guide the spirits to their offerings.
Ghosts in Love
White sandalwood, tobacco flower, lily of the valley, white carnation, and magnolia blossom with tea rose, labdanum, and oudh.
Apples, lemons, oranges, melons, like honey to the throat, but poison in the blood.
Quiet, ineffective ghosts haunting the realm of mystery and night, stretching dusty hands back to homes and lifetimes unforgotten: pale gossamer musks swirling in thick, dense otherworldly vapours through cracks in dry wood and old, old stones.
The Hell Gate of Ireland 2013
Smoldering brimstone, bitter labdanum, clove, black musk, and copper-colored feathers.
John Barleycorn 2013
Barley, beer, blood, and whiskey.
Le Revenant 2013
A shroud of gardenia, narcissus, and sandalwood with ambrette seed, white cognac, muguet, davana, and white musk.
Copal, precious woods, South American spices, agave nectar, cigar tobacco, and roses.
Ooky (yes my mind went here! Ew ookie cookie!)
This is the scent of lightly spiced pumpkin candies, decorated with thick marzipan, sweetened with buttercream, an decorated with a touch of lemon zest.
Truly the scent of autumn itself – damp woods, fir needle, and black patchouli with the gentlest touches of warm pumpkin, clove, nutmeg, allspice, sweet red apple and mullein.
A myrrh-darkened amber chypre sweetened by newly-ripened black pomegranate.
Theme in Yellow
Ghost songs and love to the harvest moon: fresh pumpkins warmed by candlelight and aglow with Halloween joy.
The Pumpkin Patch
Notes of pumpkin infused with popular BPAL fragrance scents.
The Pumpkin Patch scents include:
- Alice in the Pumpkin Patch
- Dorian in the Pumpkin Patch
- Moroccan Pumpkin Patch
- Samhain in the Pumpkin Patch
- Sin in the Pumpkin Patch
- Snakes in the Pumpkin Patch
Fear of darkness. Oppressive, stifling, suffocating, blinding: black patchouli, tobacco absolute, opoponax, and inky black musk.
Fear of nighttime. The vast, endless canopy of the night sky, dotted with cold, harsh pinpoints of light under a bulging white moon.
Fear of ghosts. Whispers in the darkness and cold breath upon your neck: calla lilies, white sandalwood, snow rose, white amber, and iced wine.
Fear of tombstones. Jagged claws of crumbling stone thrusting through tear-soaked moss.
Fear of Halloween. Menacing Haitian vetiver, patchouli, and clove with a shock of bourbon geranium, grim oakmoss, and dread-inspiring balsams pierce the innocuous scent of autumn leaves.
I’ll have reviews of a few of my favorite oils soon! I dare do say that this year it saddens me to see my beloved Sugar Skull is not available but the sweeter its return next year I hope!
