Belonging to the Darkness II
Inspired by my signature ring series of the same name from BloodMilk jewels, this perfume oil blend was created by hand by Elizabeth Barrial in Los Angeles of much beloved scent conjurers Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, exclusively for this project.
Dark 3-year aged patchouli and vintage amber, smoky cardamom, gilded juniper leaf, and a drop of golden vetiver.
-5ml perfume oil blend in an amber apothecary glass vial
-When not in use, store in a cool, dark place to maximize shelf life
-Original bottle label artwork by artist Aaron Horkey inspired by antique apothecary labels
-Each bottle purchased comes nested inside a keepsake box with artwork by artist Aaron Horkey features a conjoining of the BPAL heart & three swords brand symbol with BloodMilk's planchette brand symbol
-Each keepsake box was specially designed & engraved with metallic silver ink by local St. Paul, MN company Studio on Fire
Review via S. Elizabeth:
I am blind, initially, in the cool, murky patchouli-fied and daunting darkness of this fragrance, (somewhat similar to the dark, root-y Owl Moon from Chapter I) but in the dark there is a glimmering speck, a glowing point of warmth that begins to grow brighter. A kind traveler with a light aloft in the gloom, flickering and flaring, and redolent of a salty, maple/molasses note. This unexpected sweetness wonderfully balances out that coldly aloof, earthy dankness– a tender meeting of one’s shadow in the light.
