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!
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Pralines and Powdered Sugar comes in a 5ML glass alchemy jar with a label featuring Lilith and her dad, Ted, making funny faces. It’s a whimsical way to celebrate their daughter’s birthday to say the least and I look forward to Lilith’s birthday fragrance oils year after year as many are quite foodie in nature and I love a decadent smelling perfume oil!
In the bottle this has a pure concentrated melted butter smell. It’s sickeningly buttery and not particularly pleasant to my nose. Initially when applied you get a more mellow, pleasing buttery vanilla kinda like a Duncan Hines or a Betty Crocker cake mix scent. As it dries you’ll find it goes a bit play-doh like in scent….after about 20 minutes it morphs and suddenly you’ll be slammed with the creamy scent of gorgeous praline ice cream…caramel, pralines, a bit of vanilla! And yes, somehow, someway, they managed to capture the powdery sugar from a warm beignet!
Needless to say it’s gorgeous!
This one is for the girls and guys who love a cake-like fragrance ones that’s intertwined with the scents you’d find in an old style ice cream parlor! It’s decadent, delicious, and in some ways might bring to mind a cafe in New Orleans selling fresh, hot powdered beignets!
