Black Phoenix April Updates Leftovers
A cascading bouquet of French lavender, smoke-touched, with bourbon vanilla and caramelized tobacco, pricked by tiny daggers of white cognac.
Nag champa, patchouli, and weed** smoke.
“Please do not smoke, eat, or huff this oil. Do not rub it on your gums, do not put it on your privates, do not vape it. It is a perfume and meant to be used as such. No funnybusiness! **This perfume contains no actual weed. Zero cannabis. None. Zilch. What do I look like? A dispensary?)”

Dark chocolate infused with thirteen protective herbs and offerings to keep capricious spirits at bay: red wine, Spanish moss, yarrow, black sage, coconut meat, nutmeg, black clove, caraway, allspice, archangel, crushed acorn, marshmallow root, and mullein.
Moons of Saturn: Jarnsaxa
Her scent is that of ice floes and frozen mountainsides, white juniper crushed under the bare feet of a jötunn.
Dry grass, clean skin, and a little bit of mossy berry.
A classic vintage musk with a bit of tea splash and biscuit crumbs.
A grand, over-the-top tuberose gardenia with a bit of tea splash and biscuit crumbs.
A toodle oodle of pink cotton candy noses, vanilla spun sugar fur, scattered kernels of popcorn, and a touch of polished golden wood.
Cooking herbs, pickles, and mouse fur.
Benzoin, honey, cedar, and dark musk.
The Other Hot Chocolate
A mug of frothy hot chocolate.
The Other Miss Forcible
A classic vintage musk with a bit of tea splash and biscuit crumbs made sticky sweet, cobwebby, and grotesque.
The Other Miss Spink
A grand, over-the-top tuberose gardenia with a bit of tea splash and biscuit crumbs made sticky sweet, cobwebby, and grotesque.
The Other Mother’s Right Hand
White as bone, black as a beetle, and red as blood – orris root, vetiver, and daemonorops.
The Silver Stream
The scent of forgetfulness, peace, and oblivion. Like asphodel petals on moonlit water.
Cold leaded glass, bone chip snow, and glycerin.
The Three Ghost Children
In the perfume, I also tried to capture the blue-violet-white of an afterimage and the silence of a snuffed candle. The scent is dry with age, taut with loss, grief, and heartbreak, and sorrowful in the unspeakable desolation of simply being forgotten.
These are sample sizes. Full sized bottles are stocked at Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Black Phoenix Trading Post. As limited edition collections, these scents will be allowed to sell out. Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab & Trading Post have had a well developed decanter culture which I have been a part of for many, many years. While I communicate with them on the regular, they are not an official Ajevie partner and to support the traditions already in place, all Black Phoenix decants are non-profit on my end.
