Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab’s sister company, Black Phoenix Trading Post creates these fabulous hair, body, and atmosphere products. From hair glosses, to body oils to linen/atmosphere sprays. They’re the perfect counter products to their perfume oils and I am quicklyyyy amassing a huge collection of hair glosses. For hair gloss reviews, I will stick to reviewing the overall scent, as I find that hair glosses don’t morph as much, along with longevity of it. Although it states it has a six month shelf-life, it lasts for much longer than that! The hair glosses come in 4 oz bottles and have a smaller general catalog with most of the scents being limited editions.
Today is Snake Charmer hair gloss, this is my absolute number one scent right now. I am sooooooo in love with it!
Sensual, sibilant, sexual and hypnotic: Arabian musk and exotic spices slinking through Egyptian amber, enticing vanilla, and a serpentine blend of black plum, labdanum, ambrette, benzoin and black coconut.
I get the sweet dark, vanilla coconut and plum with some of the ambrette nuttiness. This scent is warm spices (without cinnamon, as I really can’t do cinnamon), with a deep rich fruit that is fruity without becoming plastic/artificial on me. I get a deep dark musk (but not red musk) with vanilla’d spices and slightly plummy incense. I use two spritzes in my dry hair and it’ll last me all day. The scent also “wakes” up again when the water hits my hair in the shower! This scent is so evocative of a snake charmer–sensual, exotic and absolutely gorgeous.
