Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Spiced Autumn Cider Perfume Oil is one of several limited edition fragrances that launched with the Lab’s Halloweenies 2016 Collection. I’m sorry I’m getting this up so late but my order didn’t come to the end of October (the Lab takes anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks to get an order out). I hope you don’t mind me reviewing them a little later than I normally do!

As far as I’m concerned and contrary to what the stores are telling us, it is still very much Fall! So, these fragrances are perfect for November!

Let’s take a look!

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Spiced Autumn Cider is a traditional cider scent with ginger, clove, cinnamon, tangerine, and of course, tart apple not to mention a hint of black peppercorns to add a little warmth.

In the bottle, this smells like candied apples. It’s sweet with a bite of cinnamon and an layering of zesty tangerine. Wet on my skin, it smells like cinnamon-y fruit punch! It packs a sweet and powerful punch of fruity goodness. If I close my eyes, I can think of every single silly teenage horror movie I’ve seen that has a school Halloween dance party with the customary punch bowl that has floating slices of orange on the surface and of course, it’ll get spiked half way through the movie. So many notes come out to play while it dries down! Orange, cranberry, lemon, tons of allspice, clove, red hot candies, and the warmth of a bowl filled with Fall potpourri! About three hours into the wear all those strong notes remain but more warmth even emerges and the spicy notes come out even further followed by crunchy apple notes.

This is one of the strongest blends I’ve experienced from this year’s Fall/Halloween Perfume Oils! It has a long, strong wear and a crazy linger. I had clients in my office sniffing the air asking if I was burning a candle. People in line at the post office muttering under their breath in puzzlement, “It smells like Fall in here!”

If you’re looking for the scent of Fall you won’t be disappointed with the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Spiced Autumn Cider! It captures the season beautifully!
