Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab- Giveaway! - Closed


A few years ago, I came across a company who offered "RPG" scents like elf, warrior, rogue, ect... and just had to try them.  Well, I've been hooked ever since.  The company is Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, and they are unlike any other perfume company I've ever seen.  Just the names of the fragrances alone are awesome.  For instance, one of my favorites is Jazz Funeral.  Their description of the scent is bittersweet bay rum, bourbon, and a host of funeral flowers with a touch of graveyard dirt, magnolia and Spanish Moss.  Now, I know you're thinking that's an odd combination, but the scent is actually progressive.  It starts out as a kind of boozy scent, followed by florals, and then mellows out with an earthy clean scent.  It's seriously just like a jazz funeral procession on your skin.  
If you're not into smelling like a funeral, there's literally something for everyone on their site.  You can get lost reading all the different descriptions.  My newest purchase from them is Molly Grue from their The Last Unicorn line.  Yes, they made fragrances for The Last Unicorn.  
All of their scents come in a 5ml bottle, which I'm pretty sure would last you a lifetime.  But, if you're not ready to commit to a scent, they offer "imps" which are trial size versions which I absolutely love.  You can get a pack of 6 imps for a discounted price to make your own little sampler.  They also throw in a few random imps into each purchase as an extra bonus.  
This will be my first giveaway, so I'm really proud to be giving away something from a company I absolutely love.  The winner will receive three imps: Ekhidna, The Night Raven, and Haunted.  Entries are limited to U.S. addresses only (sorry international folks- I'll include you in the next one!).  Use the form below to enter (and please let me know if you have any issues.  This is my first one so hopefully it works!).

  14. Favorite BPAL scent...that's a hard one, lol! I'm going to say Embalming Fluid. That one always makes me happy, plus it was the first BPAL I ever bought.

  23. I have been buying from BPAL for years! My favorite is AntiKythera Mechanism from the Steamworks section. I love HAUNTED and AELOPHILE as well as DANSE MACABRE. I have a list of imps I want to get...so many wish I could get them all!!!!!!!

  24. One of my favorite scents is also one of the simplest---Ravenous. It's red patchouli and orange blossom, but it is the way patchouli ought to smell. Amazing, warm, and coming in gentle waves all day long. I also really adore Loviatar. I'm not sure they even make that now, but it was good enough that I got a 10ml bottle when they still made them. It seems like it would go off before I ever get to finish it, but bpal ages really well. :)
