BPAL Reviews

Previous BPAL Reviews and my Summary page of all reviews for Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab scents.

Scent: Madrid
Description: Swarthy and vibrant! An elegant, full-bodied scent that ignites all the darkest passions. Bold red wine, mimosa, and a trickle of clove.
Thoughts: All I get off of this scent on me is the strong scent of soap and clove. Yuck.
Buy: No

Scent: Magdalene
Description: A stirring yet gentle perfume. The scent of love and devotion mingled with an undercurrent of heart-rending sorrow. A bouquet of white roses, labdanum, and wild orchid.
Thoughts: Very heavy and cloying on me. Orchids and I don't seem to get along together. It's too bad. I wanted to like this one.
Buy: No.

Scent: Masabakes
Description: Thick black currant with the darkest, deepest myrrh, a drop of bitter mimosa and the slightest touch of mandrake dust.
Thoughts: Sweet with a bitter undertone. Not particularly exciting in any way.
Buy: No.

Scent: Mouse's long and sad tale
Description: Vanilla, two ambers, sweet pea and white sandalwood.
Thoughts: Goes on very sweet but mellows into a warm and woody smell with the sweet undertone. Different than I usually wear but I like it.
Buy: Keep the imp

Scent: Nosferatu
Description: As soft as grave dust and as dry as a breath drawn within a long forgotten crypt, this is Nosferatu: desiccated herbs and gritty earth brought to life with a swell of robust and sanguineous red wines.
Thoughts: It's a bit strong and masculine for me. There is a bitter undertone I don't like and a sweet overtone that, when I can smell it, I do like. All in all, not a good scent for me.
Buy: No

Scent: Nuit
Description: Her perfume is starry and crystalline, a jewel-clad and glittering paean to night: dazzling white musks, white rose and night-blooming jasmine with the soft moss of moonlit meadows, a waft of Egyptian incense, and a gentle breath of moonflower.
Thoughts: It's strong and on the edge of sweet. The musk is nice on me.
Buy: Keep the imp
