Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab is donating all the proceeds from January sales of the following scents:

Port Au Prince (in the "Wanderlust" section) -- "Dark, decadent and incomparably exotic: the rich scent of buttered rum flavored with almond, bay, clove and sassafras." I've tried this; on me it's mostly almond with a spike of clove under it. The bay and rum push it into the traditionally "masculine" category, but it's something I'll wear.

The following are from the "Exocolo" section

Elegba -- "His ofrenda contains coconut, tobacco and sweet, sugared rum."
Obatala -- "Obatala’s ofrenda is soft, white and pure: milk, coconut meat, shea butter and cool, refreshing water."
Ochosi -- "His ofrenda is the soft shea he shares with Obatala, forest herbs, and sprucewood arrow shafts."
Ogun -- Ogun’s ofrenda is heavy and dark cigar tobacco, gin and juniper, melon, chili pepper and a touch of honey."
Olokun -- "His ofrenda is the scent of the lightless deep: the glorious, unknowable gloom of the ocean floor."
Osun -- "Her ofrenda is thick with honey and herbs of love, passion and desire."
Oya -- "Oya’s ofrenda is a Nigerian potion of love and war, sweetened by darkest plum." This smells utterly awesome on Nancy. :)
Shango -- "The Master of Lightning’s ofrenda contains red apples, banana, chili pepper, coconut, pineapple, pomegranate and sugar cane."
Yemaya -- "Her ofrenda is a bounty of melons and grapes, strewn with the petals of the flowers of motherhood, draped with sea mosses."

Just one tonight:

From the 2009 Yule LE Line:

Sol Invictus -- "A radiant blend of solar oils: golden amber, saffron, heliotrope, hibiscus, citron, frangipani, frankincense, tangerine, mock orange, and orange blossom."

It's a somewhat heavy floral with just a touch of ambery spice under it. Mostly what I'm getting is the frangipani and the orange blossom grounded by the amber. I'd say this is an almost tropical floral for people who don't like florals. In other words, me. :)

OMG, so many reviews! And it's scary how many more things I've got in the "to be reviewed" drawers of my organizer.

I've got: One from Arcana (via Soap Box Company), Two from BPAL's Carnaval Diabolique, One from Cobalt Blends and Three from Nocturne Alchemy.

and on to the reviews )
