    This one smells like a masculine fougere. I get musk, amber resin, notes of champaca, herbs, and woods. It's definitely not just a perfume, if you ask me. I get a ton of throw from this in the first two or three hours, and it goes from a fresh green to a more woodsy green as it dries.

    This scent is set against the backdrop of a winter sky. It is a perfume that seeks to harness the wit and raw potential of Hermes, the wisdom and power of Athena, and the authority and sovereignty of Zeus – tempered by Amalthea’s compassion and mercy, propelled by the self-discipline, willpower, and determination of the Chariot. Starry white vegetal musk and a cold winter wind blowing through olive blossom, sweet labdanum, fossilized amber resin, fir needle, fern, balm melissa, champaca, cypress, and white cedar.
  4. "In essential things, unity." A perfume to strengthen our bonds to one another for support in trying times: sweet patchouli, oakmoss, red oud, guiac wood, mahogany, and honeyed vetiver.

    John Locke

    A blend of 17th century grooming products and some Sexy Virgo Philosopher Leather Action: lavender pomade, a splash of Carmelite water, tonka bean, and a well-worn strop.

    Inspired by anointing oils used in the philosopher’s time after partaking in public baths: orris root, ambergris accord, frankincense, olive blossom, black fig, and marjoram.

    Doorway Scrub

    I mopped my house yesterday with Doorway Scrub, Clean Yer Home, and the TAL Winter Protect floorwash offered during the LA Will-Call and my house smells amazing. Doorway Scrub smells primarily of lemongrass to me. It's bright, sparkly, and fierce. Definitely a cleanser.

    Clean Yer Home

    I mopped my house yesterday with Doorway Scrub, Clean Yer Home, and the TAL Winter Protect floorwash offered during the LA Will-Call and my house smells amazing. I am going to add some Clean Yer Home to my house cleanser so that I can spray it all over my house. 10/10 would buy again. It smells mainly of rue to me.

    Lump of Coal

    To welcome Black Phoenix Trading Post into the fold, we are celebrating by turning BPTP’s notorious 2005 Naughty or Nice Inquisition imp into a proper perfume. Ok, fine. It isn’t really a lump of coal, but brownies and coal are vaguely similar in color! This is the truly sinful scent of a sticky, thick, dark and rich fudge brownie.
