BPAL Reviews

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

Scent: Strangler Fig
Description: The Strangler Fig then sprouts numerous epiphytic vines that strangles and surrounds its unwilling host, and finally snuffs the life from it. Rooty, woody, with deep green tones.
Thoughts: Very nice scent. It wears well and long without being cloying. A warm sweetness. I like it.
Buy: Keep the imp

Scent: Van Van
Description: A venerable voodoo blend, used for purification of the spirit and to amplify positive personal power.
Thoughts: Oh man. Sharp and yucky in the bottle. Tried it anyway. You never know. Sharp and yucky on the skin. Ew. Ew. Ew. Had to wash my wrists of the smell about an hour later. Me and the voodoo blends do not get along.
Buy: No.

Scent: Vechernyana
Description: Three white musks with poppy and patchouli.
Thoughts: Very masculine at first and sharp. Very Russian. Much later it is sweet on my skin
Buy: No

Scent: Versailles
Description: Grand, courtly and robust: a glittering, golden scent that would do Louis XIV proud. Gilded red and gold citrus with amber, ruby roses, jasmine and orris.
Thoughts: Lush and debauched. It has a nice high tone of citrus with an undertone of baby power - which I don't usually like but in this combination, it works very nicely. (Later) "Man, this Versailles oil from BPAL makes me feel like I should be lounging somewhere, drinking wine while someone fans me."
Buy: Keep the imp. Consider a 5ml

Scent: Zorya
Description: Spices of the Orient mingle with crystalline musk, midnight flowers and cereus, jasmine, primrose and vesper iris.
Thoughts: Smells like aftershave to me and not in a good way. It's probably the iris that is clashing with me.
Buy: No

I got mine today, Ok technically it is yesterday considering what time it is.

I put on Fae first..nice not smelling the peach as much as I'd hoped it has a stronger flowery scent but not that bad and I liked it. It also lasted for hours before disapearing. (Like almost 12 hours!

Dorian I accidentally got on my knuckle and WOW it is lovely and also lasted for hours(In fact I can still smell it). It is rich sent but still gentle. YUM! Husbvand loved it too!

Heheh thank Jen I'm hooked!
