My bottle of the Shojo Beat-inspired scent Vampire Tears arrived and I’m pretty sure it’s now the geekiest thing I own. I mean that in a good way. I’ve bought enough from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab that I can tell when I’ll like something from the description and this I do quite like. The fruits and ginger are bright and sharp but complimented by the florals. This would make a good every day scent for me — it’s not too overpowering but still has a presence.
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab also sent along a sample of the the other Shojo Beat scent, Midnight Kiss. It’s not my thing — it smells too much like the inside of a new age shop on me. I’m sure it’s lovely on someone else, but it does show that I picked correctly.
And yes, I’ve moved very far away from actually discussing comic books here.
See you at SPX.
