    A Few More LE Restocks!

    Okay, contrary to what I said elsewhere, we have indeed managed to restock a few more LE's! It felt important to get the word out, so folks can still pounce on the Free Gift imps if they haven't already. Cherry Red Oct 33rd The Shadowed Veil Samhain Every Day is Halloween Lightning Strikes Literature Apple Macchiato A Sorceress Sorry for the mixed messages, we really are just off-roading through this stuff because of the move.

    We blew it when we launched the 'Weenies, accidentally omitting PUMPKIN RUM CAKE. We've launched the scent to coincide with the sniff vid in which we sampled it -- link to the perfume is in the caption. Thank you, and apologies once again!

  13. The new Sphere + Sundry drop celebrating Exalted Venus contains four incredible new perfume blends capitalizing on a particularly benevolent astrological conjunction. Brief descriptions below! https://sphereandsundry.com/product-category/series/exalted-venus-ii/ CONDOLEO "A sweet, comforting oil: a balm for despair, a heart-healer, and a catharsis." SQUAMA "This oil was crafted as a protection from the ravages of personal and global grief by enabling you to keep an open heart, letting the darkness of the world pass through you without injuring you. Squama assists in helping you remain able to acknowledge and process pain with eyes that remain open and hearts that remain open while enabling you to continue to react with love to yourself and to others no matter how dark the world may become." POMPILUS "Loosely inspired by remoras, this oil will assist you in befriending those who – at first glance – may seem to be your enemies, in finding (and charming) unexpected allies, and in guiding you to your destinations (literal, spiritual, and metaphorical) in safety." LEPOS "An oil of effervescent charm, quirky humor, captivation, and enchantment. The allure of the odd, the magnetism of Poe’s 'strangeness in the proportion,' the amplification and cultivation of the strange things about you that make you uniquely lovely." Available for $45 each, or as a full set for $180

    July Lunacy is LIVE

    Now that CRANE MOON and the rest of the July offerings are here, please remember: in a week we'll be taking down Lupercalia, Yule, and all the other stuff we've been warning about for a bit now. Do with that information what you will! https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/product-tag/july-2022/
  15. Welp, we've just released a new perfume to raise emergency veterinary funds for the Barrials' littlest, Maggie, who is in trouble now due to complications from her spay surgery. Obviously the timing couldn't be worse for them; we're dropping a special LE in hopes that it will help ease this unforeseen financial burden. (As Beth writes on the product page, any additional funds raised will be donated to https://redrover.org/. Thank you all so much for your support during such a delicate time. And on a personal note, I'd like to request that folks give the Barrials some space to take care of things in this sensitive moment -- they really shouldn't be deluged with messages and notifications during their special gal's time of need. https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/limited-edition/margaret-magdalena-muffinhead-perfume-oil/ MARGARET MAGDALENA MUFFINHEAD "Miss Margaret Magdalena is a chocolate lab baby so her perfume is a thick, smoky fudge brownie scent with a heavy handful of coffee beans. She has golden eyes with a hint of green, so I added a bit of caramelized amber and green cardamom."
