I ordered 4 5ml bottles from Black Phoenix recently; the first two I love and the
second two I'm hoping I love!
Bengal: skin musk with honey, peppers, clove, cinnamon bark and ginger.
Athens: voluptuous myrrh, golden honey, red wine, and sweet flowers.
Chintamani-Dhupa: After reading the reviews, sounds like it basically smells like
sandalwood and honey...yum!
Priala: the Human Phoenix: Three deep, dark myrrhs, smoke and
cinnamon bark. Sounds smokey and spicy, just what I like. And the phoenix ties in
with my tattoo!
I'm finding I really love things with clove in them, or honey, or red wine.
What are your favorites, and what are you hoping to love?
Yay for big orders! My first big order was back in 2004 when I got
Samhain, Sugar Skull and Dia De Los Muertos and a bunch of Imps.
Bengal is just lovely, the honey and musk in it is so beautiful. Sadly, the cinnamon I'm a little allergic to the cinnamon in this blend though. poop.
I have a decant of Chintamani-Dhupa on the way, it does sound good!
Favourites? Oh my, too many! But a few I can think of at the moment: Perversion, Morocco, Snow-Flakes, Debauchery, Theodosius, Antonino, Loviatar, The Monster Baits, Dragon's Milk...
I'm really looking forward to some Snake Pit decants I've got coming, and Mr. Nancy, especially now I'm finally reading the book!
PS. Love your tattoo, especially the colours :)
