My laptop is fried. Why god why.

Anybody here into Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab perfume? I'm gonna need to sell some stuff.




ETA: Here is the BPAL I'm putting up for sale-- y'all let me know if you want anything. Tell your friends who are into BPAL, if you know any-- for collectors some of these are kind of a steal. If I can't sell the stuff here I'll slap it up on eBay after a bit. If you have any questions about the nature of the product, please don't hesitate to ask. :)


Full 5ml bottles-- These are all limited editions that are no longer available on the website, and some are quite rare. Unless noted otherwise, each bottle has been opened and sampled once or twice. (The ones noted "Never opened" are duplicate/backup bottles I bought of particularly beloved scents, that haven't been broken into yet.) I paid between $17 and $25 for each bottle new and I'd like to get $15 per bottle now, but I'd be willing to haggle if you're buying more than one.

  • Harikata (Lupercalia 2008, Novel Ideas for Secret Amusements): Osmanthus, honey, golden musk, vanilla flower, and ginger. Never opened.
  • 13 (2007, pink label): A base of cocoa absolute and white chocolate with thirteen baneful and beneficial bits including vanilla bean, white ginger, orchid, golden peach, massoia bark, clove, honey, and starfruit.
  • Haloa (Yule 2006): Wine grapes, myrrh, frankincense and olive leaf, and the warm scent of offertory cakes. Never opened.
  • Longing (Lupercalia 2008, Love Poems): Rose geranium, frankincense, Ceylon cinnamon, golden musk, bay rum, and bois du rose.

  • Medicine Show (Carnaval Noir 2006): tobacco, balsam, ginger, elemi and rosewood, with a touch of opium to fuddle your senses. Never opened.
  • Love's Philosophy (Lupercalia 2008, Love Poems): Vanilla, saffron, and cream.
  • Lex Talionis (Resurrected, but I don't remember what year it was-- 2005 or '6): dark myrrh, vetiver, cardamom, violet, black pepper, sage, cedarwood and black patchouli with a clarion note of sharp white grapefruit.
  • Chanukkiyah (Yule 2007): Olive oil, beeswax, glowing amber, sweet sufganiyot, pomegranate, and fig. Never opened.
  • Selkie (Lunar Companion blend, July 2007): The chill waters of the Orkney coast, tea-leaved willow, honey-touched Grass-of-Parnassus, sea aster, and Scottish Primrose.
  • Irrelevant and Disturbingly Surreal Crawdad Dream (Forum-only pregnancy-dream-inspired blend): red currant, green tea, red musk, Hawaiian ginger, benzoin, vanilla, coriander, squash blossom, and blueberry.



Sample-vial-sized (1/32 fl. oz.) decants of rare/limited edition stuff - looking for $2 each.

  • Samhain '06: damp woods, fir needle, and black patchouli with the gentlest touches of warm pumpkin, clove, nutmeg, allspice, sweet red apple and mullein.
  • Stardust '07: champagne, hyacinth, tuberose, ylang ylang and flashing white musk with jonquil, tobacco flower, white sandalwood and a pale poppy.



Regular general catalogue sample vials - 2 free with purchase of a bottle.

  • Death on a Pale Horse: empty white musk and mint seeped with solemn lavender, doleful patchouli and vetiver, scythe-sharp yuzu and lime, with geranium bourbon, white sandalwood and calla lily.

  • The Hamptons: The scent of a Cosmopolitan cocktail.
  • Madame Moriarty, Misfortune Teller (decant, Carnaval Diabolique line, samples not available on site): Red musk, vanilla bean, pomegranate, patchouli leaf and wild plum.
  • Wilde: A sophisticated traditional gentleman’s cologne, with just the slightest taint of patchouli’s passion, tonka bean’s decadence, the philanthropy of bergamot, moss’ cynicism, the sharp wit of lavender, and the hopeless romantic longing of jasmine and thyme.
  • Somnus: This blend helps bring on deep, restful, natural sleep.
  • Bathsheba: carnation, sensual plum, and Arabian musk.
  • Polyhymnia (discontinued): Orris root, white sage, rowan bark and red sandalwood, with myrrh, rosemary, lemon balm and honeysuckle.
  • Alice (decant): Milk and honey with rose, carnation and bergamot.
  • Psyche: Bulgar rose, Chinese white musk, lavender, orchid and frankincense.




  • Shipping is $2, to anywhere in the US. Other countries, $5. I ship in a padded mailer and usually stick some tea bags in there too for extra insulation. :)



    EDITED AGAIN: OK, here's the updated list of people's orders and prices (if you didn't mention whether shipping is international or not, I didn't add in shipping yet), so just add on $2 for shipping within the US, and $5 elsewhere. Sorry if you asked for a sample that had already been claimed.
