Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab: The Light of Men’s Lives

BPAL The Light of Men’s Lives

The wax and smoke of millions upon millions of candles illuminating the walls of Death’s shadowy cave.

This scent is a part of the Märchen collection, which is based around old fairytales. The Light of Men’s Lives comes from the tale “Godfather Death”. I love a good smoky scent and this one received great reviews, so I was pleased to receive it as a free sample. It can be purchased on the BPAL website for $17.50 US for a full size or $4.00 for an imp.

In the bottle: Fragrant and waxy. This totally reminds me of something, but I can’t quite put my finger on what.

On the skin: It doesn’t change much from how it smells in the sample. It’s pure beeswax, fragrant but simple. There’s not much more to say about this, quite honestly. It smells like a less creepy version of Arcana Holy Terror. 

TL;DR: Dripping candle wax. Very straight forward, but done well. 4/5.
