Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Strawberry Sufganiyot

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Strawberry Sufganiyot is a new limited edition Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Yules 2014 Holiday perfume oil that recently launched. I realize Christmas is over and the last thing you want to hear about is more Holiday Collections but time got away from me and the Bpal Yules 2014 Perfume Oils are still very much available and Strawberry Sufganiyot is an absolutely must have fragrance. So, I’d be doing you a great disservice if I didn’t tell you about this delicious fragrance that happens to smell like Cap’n Crunch Berries!



Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Strawberry Sufganiyot Perfume Oil is described sugar-dusted pile of sufganiyot, trickling bright rivulets of strawberry jelly!

If you’ve never eaten sufganiyot, they are simply a really fancy jelly donut! They have a beignet like texture that’s sprinkled with powder sugar and inside they are filled with jelly or sometimes custard. My mom is fond of telling me that I was a great lover of jelly donuts as a very small babe in a high chair. My dad came to this country as a baker and jelly donuts happened to be one of the items he made daily. Story has it I’d suck the jelly out but wouldn’t eat the donut 🙂 I imagine this is one reason I won’t eat jelly donuts or sufganiyot now, perhaps I over indulged as a child?

I don’t mind the smell of them though. They smell heavenly. Doughy, sugary, cake-y with hints of sweetness from the jelly inside! For me that isn’t quite captured in the
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Strawberry Sufganiyot Perfume fragrance. In the bottle, it’s full on fruity strawberries! Not a plastic, artificial fragrance mind you, it’s a very real strawberry fragrance. On my skin wet it smells like some sort of strawberry chewing gum! Sweet, fruity, with a chewing gum aspect. As it dries down it smells like Cap’n Crunch Berries cereal on my skin. This isn’t a bad thing mind you, I adore how it morphs and developed this crunchy cereal note along with the back notes of fruity strawberry!

It’s not shy! It’s strong, it’s very sweet, and it lingers for hours upon hours on skin and switches between being cereal notes to very berry fruity notes.

If you like fragrances like Bpal Strawberry Moon but with a heck of a lot of sweeter notes you’ll adore Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Strawberry Sufganiyot!

Love this one.

It’s fruity, sweet, and perfect!

Deserving of a backup bottle me thinks!

    I got a decant of this from a circle. I’m eagerly awaiting it as I wish to try it more than ever now!

    I bet it is heavenly. I have (hate the name) the Halloween one called “Suck It” and it’s like candy. Every time I wear it, people ask me what I am wearing.
