    Playing with Dangerous Toys v2

    I was able to get a bottle of this thanks to a very kind forum member...for some reason I really wanted to try this one. I was very shocked when I opened the bottle because the released version has dirt smeared cocoa, spanish moss, charred wooden beams etc. This version is SO different than the released version. I get a blast of pink bubblegum when I first opened the bottle.....this reminds me VERY much of Velvet Unicorn.....pink bubblegum. cotton candy, and maybe some strawberry. I think this one didn't get released because it wasnt DANGEROUS enough live up to it's name.....it almost seems like this would have been more suitable for the NICE category of scents....it's very pink and girly.....if you like pink bubblegum-marshmallow scents you will love this...I know I do

    Snow Angel Hair Gloss

    Cherubic spun sugar with a hint of lemon, sparkling peach, and floral tea. I don't know what else to say except that this smells exactly like the Snow Angel perfume but in HG form! Bright, cheery lemon with just enough peach and sugar-I've never gotten any floral tea from the perfume and that still rings true with this HG-I'm thinking of getting a back up bottle! Hmmmmm now I wonder how much pleading I need to do to get a Fee HG this Winter

    Razors in a Doll's House Hair Gloss

    Rose water, cognac, and lace slashed with gleaming silver. This smells very pink to me-not cotton candy pink but like baby pink roses and cream. When it dries it smells like a dolls head-not plastic but that powdery smell of say, a cabbage patch doll (in a good way). Powdery pink rose doll heads-I'm diggin it

    Blossoming Vulva

    Golden amber and bourbon vanilla with sweet oak, blue lotus, and tea blossom. This ended up being very heavy on the blue lotus for me-the overall scent reminded me of Poor Monkey from the recent Yules (which sadly didn't work on me)-I know Poor Monkey had a different lotus in it and I was really hoping the blue lotus here would play nicer but for me, it ended up taking over this otherwise soft and pretty scent. I smell a little bit of the tea blossom as well and for me, it seems like the amber and vanilla just kind of helped blend it all together (I don't get a lot of amber or vanilla is what I'm trying to say here).

    Egg'd Mailbox

    Fresh egg, just starting to warm nicely in the sun! I was soooo excited to see this in my package from the Trading Post....this was the one I was most excited about.... In the bottle it's a very nice foody vanilla......it very much reminds me of egg nog.....but egg nog's calmer cousin.....it definitely has an egg custard type scent....very foody in it's own way....and I want to say I also smell a little dash of nutmeg??? That could just be coming from the egg nog comparison though..... If you love egg custard....and egg nog...this is the scent for you!! It almost reminds me of a nice festive Christmas scent more than a Halloween scent....I LOVE IT!!!!!! Beth, you are the BEST!!!

    Spiked Punch

    Chunky fruit punch with a generous splash of booze! WOW this one really does smell boozy!!! I took a generous whiff when I opened the bottle and woot...I think there could really be some seriously strong alcohol in there. Once I put it on it calms down to an effervescent red sweet tart scent.....very nice....I'm not sure what kind of fruit is in this punch but it smells like maybe raspberry and cherry???? Don't let this one scare you away when you smell it in the bottle......it calms down very nicely on the skin to a wearable almost fruity pebbles type scent.....love it!!!!!

    Kamisuki Hair Gloss

    I bought this to use in my daughters hair but I love it too!! It is a little shampoo-like but a REALLY good shampoo!!! I get a lot of strawberry and a lot of cherry blossom-no tea and maybe a tiny bit of the vanilla orchid-love!!!!

    Incense Chaos Theory Hair Gloss

    I received number VI-this smelled like light incense and either gardenia or Lilly of the valley maybe? The incense is very light but cuts the intensity of the floral. I'm not a floral wearer per se and didn't find that this scent was "me". I loved trying it but it is currently off to a new home.

    French Vanilla

    Hmmmmm not really what I was expecting which isn't necessarily a bad thing. In the bottle it smelled a little bit like a root beer/cream soda combo. It goes a little bit like play doh on the dry down. So sad my skin chemistry isn't working well with this SN. The anise is there and very detectable.

    Teatime in Roswell Hair Gloss

    I've never tried the perfume so I had no idea what to expect with this. I initially get the cake and tea but it's not long before the cucumber comes out a little stronger and gorgeously blends everything together! I really really like this-it's unique and refreshing-and the label art is legit ****edit****It just occurred to me what this HG reminds me of-Blue Moon 2004!!! It has to be the cucumber because when this HG dries down it has that same cool blue cucumber smell I get from blue moon 2004

    Enveloped in Silk Hair Gloss

    I can describe this in 3 words: STRAWBERRY COTTON CANDY ❤️❤️

    The Instructional Manual

    This is gorgeous!!! Red musk usually dominates most blends but that is so not the case here-the cherry blossom and strawberry make this so bright, fresh, and cheery!! If you're not a red musk lover you should still give this one a whirl! My only complaint is that it doesn't seem to stick around long on me

    Who do I email with questions? BPAL/BPTP contact info

    I know this isn't the right place on the forum to ask-but I know you guys will know! I haven't paid with PayPal since the new website has been up so I paid the old way where you just go to PayPal and send money to blackphoenixalchemylab@paypal.com and manually put your order in the notes. Does this method still work? I read later that you can go thru their website and still pay with PayPal (which was not the case with the old website) help!!

    Edith Cushing

    Very sweet and almost buttery vanilla (which I love)-as it dries the sandalwood comes out and cuts the sweet vanilla a bit-I adore this scent-glad I bought 2 bottles and am seriously considering a 3rd

    Chaos Theory VII: Gourmand

    Half bottle from decant circle #168-clove and some vanilla maybe? Maybe a little fruit too-smells like a Weenie Half bottle from decant circle-#257-this smells like it should be a Weenie too-a light black licorice maybe? Reminds me of the pastille licorice candies

    Who In the World Am I?

    This is very much lavender and cotton blossom and maybe a hint of vanilla? I think the vanilla helps keep this from being too in your face lavender. This is a lighter sweeter TKO and reminds me a lot of the scented oils they use when I get massages at the spa-which is why I'm keeping it! It's very very relaxing for me and with four year old triplets I could use something relaxing in my life

    Boo Bath Oil

    I was afraid this might go plasic-ish on my skin like some of the lab's vanilla scents do, but Boo bath oil was a nice sweet buttercream scent with no plastic.....I used it as an after shower moisturizer and then went to put my kids shoes on for school.....they all said "mmmmm mommy you smell good" winner!

    Pink Moon 2012

    The reviews scared me a little bit but I love this a whole lot more than I thought I would! To me it smells like something pastel pink would smell like....it smells like baby pink flowers with a dribble of strawberry! Very sweet and feminine....I'm already on the hunt for a second bottle of this sweet beauty!

    Pink Lace

    This smells exactly like Pink Moon 07 on me....I'm not sure why because I dont think they have a single note in common? Pink Moon had carnation and phlox (I forget what else) I do like Pink Lace but it smells more like carnation on me than strawberry....either way I am keeping my bottle because I do love it!

    Bourbon Vanilla Bath Oil

    I'm really glad I purchased a decant of this first...it's definitely not what I was expecting....it smells like root beer (sassafras) I have a rootbeer shampoo from Moonalisa that I use and this smell so much like the shampoo..... I think it's nice, don't get me wrong, I like rootbeer...its just not what I was expecting from this particular bath oil....I will use my decant but will probably opt to buy a full bottle of Castitas instead for my vanilla fix

    Treat #1

    A super-sweet, glittering mountain of crushed hard candy: watermelon, pink lime, lemon, strawberry and piles upon piles of crystalline sugar. Yippee do I get the honor of being the first one to review these?? In the bottle: Smells like watermelon jolly ranchers and lots and lots of sugar! Once I put it on I get the lime and lemon coming out to play...and still watermelon and SUGAR. I think I would compare this to Fruit Moon...it has alot of fruityness to it like Fruit Moon does....this scent reminds me of one of the strawberry shortcake dolls I used to have (don't remember which one..that was a LONG time ago). Overall this oils smells pretty much like I thought it would....bright, fruity, cheery goodness....and this is the treat that I wanted when I placed my order!!!! BRAVO lab....BRAVO!!

    I am a big red musk fan but sometimes I'm afraid to wear it because I fear it's a little too sharp (like in MME Moriarty...which I do like) Hygeia....is fricken gorgeous red musk!!!! Not sharp at all but rather a very sweet smelling red musk...I also smell the sweet incense and golden musk but the sweetened red musk is the star....this is so well blended and beautiful....now I'm kicking myself for only buying 1 bottle before it was taken down....I must have a backup bottle of this (which is something I rarely do) a very sophisticated red musk....love love love!!!!!

    The First of the Three Spirits

    I am very happy with this one....it very much reminds me of Ice Queen....it's cold and fruity and lovely!!
