New At The Black Phoenix Trading Post: Gemini Scent Locket, Eat Me Hair Gloss, New Scents & A Bracelet

The Goblins have been busy and we have new items up at the Black Phoenix Trading Post!

Geminiedit

Gemini Zodiac Scent Locket

Exquisite, elegant, and exclusive to the Trading Post.

These are heavy lockets, thick with silver, and are perfect for use as a perfume oil conduit. Dab your favorite Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab concoction onto muslin, velvet or cotton, and place the swatch inside the locket. Your body will warm the silver, and the locket will exude pure, unadulterated scent.

The Zodiac lockets are hand cast 925 sterling silver that has been partially gold washed using a method popularized in the 19th century and each is adorned with at least one stone corresponding to the sign the locket represents. Each locket’s bale sports one of the BPAL logos: the alchemical symbol for brimstone. Portions of the face of the lockets have been deliberately tarnished. They measure approximately 1.25″ in diameter. These lockets are heavy. They are not fragile, filigreed pieces; they are durable, extremely weighty with silver, and are suitable for your most adventurous airship excursions.

These lockets are exclusive to the Trading Post, and were created by and for Black Phoenix. They cannot be found anywhere else in all of Heaven and Earth.

Each piece is hand cast. This is an extremely limited run. At this time, we are unsure if we’ll be able to do another run of these pendants in the future.

All jewelry comes with a gossamer ribbon in a Black Phoenix Trading Post velvet pouch.

The Zodiac lockets were designed by Alicia Dabney of Elements and Artifacts.

Green-goblin3

GREEN GOBLIN SACK Statue + Oil Blend

The goblin statues are 6 ¼ tall x 4 inches wide, and weigh 5oz. They are composed of poured resin.

Each statue is slightly different, as each and every one was hand-crafted by real human beings! Conceived of, designed, sculpted, hand-painted, and produced in North America!

Each goblin statue can fit one BPAL bottle under his arm and another in its wee lil’ sack for a total of two – count ‘em, TWO – bottles!

The Goblin Statue and Goblin Sack come as a set and cannot be separated. You wouldn’t separate a goblin from his sack, wouldja?

Each statue comes with a bottle of Goblin Sack! –

GOBLIN SACK
Vanilla-laced leather with 3-year aged patchouli and a warm sack o’hazelnuts.

Coffin

CRYPT PRINCESS and her COFFIN

The Crypt Princess resides in her resin coffin which is decorated with the words Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab written in a  circle around the BPAL Triple Dagger logo, and there are four happy skulls guarding her.

The coffin is 3″ wide x 6″ long x 2″ deep. Cost $75 (includes a 5ml bottle of Crypt Princess)

CRYPT PRINCESS
O in the silence of the night, 
When the lonely moon rides high, 
When wintry winds are whistling, 
And we hear the owl’s shrill cry; 
In the quiet, dusky chamber, 
By the flickering firelight, 
Rising up between two sleepers, 
Comes a spirit all in white.

Pomegranate and autumn apple with tea roses, red musk, a bouquet of pale grave flowers, and a winding sheet of white sandalwood and dusky vanilla.

Eat-Me-Hair-Gloss

 

EAT ME Hair Gloss

Eat Me won July’s Lunacy poll!

Three white cakes, vanilla, and red and black currants.

Eat-Me-Atmosphere-Spray

EAT ME Home & Linen Spray

Eat Me Atmosphere spray… did not win the July Lunacy poll, but was so close the goblins thought you might like this too!

Three white cakes, vanilla, and red and black currants

Triple-Dagger-bracelet

BLACK PHOENIX TRIPLE DAGGER Bracelet

Slim and lovely, these lightweight vegan bracelets sport a hand-cast bronze medallion with the Black Phoenix triple logo! Custom made for Black Phoenix Trading Post, hand-crafted here in the City of Angels.

Bracelet is 7.5”, with two sets of snaps for an adjustable fit.

Super-soft 100% not-leather leatherness. No cows, pigs, goats, sheep, snakes, ostriches, hamsters, lemurs, toads, or shrews – or any other animals – were harmed in the creation of these bracelets.

Details On The Scents For Sale By BPAL At The CBLDF Party At SDCC

cbldf

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab is proud to sponsor the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund’s San Diego Comic Con Welcome Party! We will have a small vending space at the event, where we will be selling a selection of scents whose proceeds go to the CBLDF, including two event exclusives:

ANAXAGORAS ($26)

Anaxagoras, a physiologoi, was a pioneer in scientific inquiry. His naturalistic theories of explanation were considered a danger to public religion and civic culture, making him an enemy of the polis. He was indicted on charges of impiety for asserting that the sun is a mass of incandescent, red-hot metal, the moon is an earthy sphere, and that the stars are fiery stones.

The fire of the sun, the glow of the moon, and the twinkle of flaming-white stars eclipsed by temple incense and scorched olive leaf: Tunisian amber, Italian bergamot, and blue and white musks blanketed in styrax, libanon, and myrron.

PROTAGORAS ($26)

"Concerning the gods, I have no means of knowing whether they exist or not or what sort they may be, because of the obscurity of the subject, and the brevity of human life.”

Protagoras was one of the earliest Sophists, teaching that the quintessence of good citizenship lies in self-restraint, the pursuit of justice, and the preservation of the social order. He promoted the virtues of efficient management of one’s affairs, properly running one’s household, and making worthwhile and effective contributions to Athenian society. Because of the wisdom of his teachings, he was appointed lawgiver for the colony of Thurii

Despite his contributions, Protagoras’ outspoken agnosticism inflamed the anger of the Athenians. According to Diogenes Laërtius and Cicero, Protagoras was eventually banished from Athens, and all of his written works were collected and burned in the agora.

Smoldering scrolls and melted wax tablets.

At the event, we will be debuting phone cases that feature artwork from our chapbook for Neil Gaiman’s Snow Glass Apples. At this time, we are only able to offer cases for iPhone 5. Illustration by Julie Dillon! $40 per case!

New Lunacy, David Mack’s Kabuki, The Gatekeeper & The July BPTP Poll!

kabuki

A note from Beth about the new scents for David Mack’s Kabuki:

I am honored beyond words to present the first scents in our homage to David Mack’s Kabuki.

David Mack is the New York Times Best Selling author and artist of the KABUKI Graphic Novels, the writer and artist of Daredevil from Marvel Comics, including DAREDEVIL: End of Days which just debuted in hardcover as #1 on the New York Times Best Sellers List (Co-written with Brian Michael Bendis), and the author and artist of his children’s book THE SHY CREATURES from MacMillan.

David most recently created the art & concept for the credit sequence on the #1 hit film Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

David’s work has garnered nominations for seven Eisner Awards, four International Eagle Awards, and both the Harvey and Kirby Awards in the category of Best New Talent, as well as many other national and international awards and nominations.

David is a fantastic artist, and his stories are truly moving. Even better? He is a singularly wonderful person. It is an honor to work with him.

THE ENTERPRISE OF THE NIGHT

Inspired by the opening pages of Circle of Blood. The scent of vice and darkness: flashing neon, oil-tinged petrichor, fading perfume, smeared lipstick, and the faintest touch of gunpowder residue.

LITTLE SISTER IS WATCHING YOU

A voice on the airwaves: electric, aldehydic cherry blossom.

ICE

Devoted ruthlessness. This is the scent of razors, cold metal, icicles, and her diamond-tipped claws: eucalyptus blossom, crystalline musk, white ginger, mint, and elemi.

CHANNEL SNOW

Television static made manifest, with a glimpse of perversions hidden beneath: benzoin, black pepper, white sandalwood, olibanum, ambergris accord, galbanum, and O3.

***********************************

We have a new scent based on the villain in The Maze of Games by puzzle and game designer Mike Selinker and Lone Shark Games.

THE GATEKEEPER

A dry perfume, solemn and riddled with ancient, whispered secrets: brittle bones, the well-worn leather spines of forgotten books, crumbling papyrus, and the warm, strange scent of yellowed, crumbling manuscripts.

***********************************

Peninsula Delioiorum

++ A LITTLE LUNACY: TABULA SELENOGRAPHICA

This cycle, we’re changing up the Lunacies a bit. From Aries to Aries, we’ll be sailing through the dreamstuff of the lunar mare on a voyage that transverses the surface of Luna by way of your subconscious.

Continuing with Tabula Selenographica’s trip through the lunar landscape, we are thrilled to present:

OCEANUS PROCELLARUM

The Ocean of Storms: crystallized salt and opalescent moon stones buffeted by an illusion of wave-thrashed kelp and tattered seaweed.

*************************************

In other news:

There’s a new poll over at the Black Phoenix Trading Post and we’d like your feedback to help the goblins figure out what to make next.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the scents for Only Lovers Left Alive, we’ve been getting some amazing feedback and people are already coming back to stock up on their favorites.

Finally, the reviews for our collaboration with Kelly Sue DeConnick for the Pretty Deadly scents have been really positive. We’re so glad to be working with Kelly Sue and hope you’re enjoying the scents as well.
