I got my package of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Halloweenie scents yesterday and had a chance to test several today.

Apple X: Red apple and patchouli with vanilla cream, white musk, red musk, and teakwood. First sniff, tons of apple and red musk. On drydown, very similar to Mania (Screeching white musk collides with a howl of red musk, with sharp white grapefruit and pale strawberry leaf) but sweeter and redder. Love it, definitely a keeper, and perfect for fall.

Dead Leaves and Blackberries: I adored the DL note from the series last year. However, I didn't get much of a berry note from this one. A faint hint at first that reminded me of B&BW's Sun-Ripened Raspberry from wayyy back in the day, and then it was almost florally. Like blackberry flowers instead of the berry. I'm almost wondering if I got the wrong decant. The DL note was almost absent. Pass.

Dead Leaves, Blackcurrant, and Tobacco Tar: Somewhere along the way, blackcurrant became one of my favorite notes. I love it, and it works very well on me. This is no exception. This is perfume. It's fancy and sophisticated, and is still going strong some 7 hours later. Definitely a keeper!
