Black Phoenix Trading Post: Hair Gloss Reviews Pt.2

BPTP Hair Glosses Pt.2

When it comes to BPTP hair glosses, there is a very wide variety of scents. Because of that, I like getting little 5mL decants of a bunch of them so I can test them out. All of these hair gloss decants (except So Below) are from the lovely ladies at Crown and Tulip decants!  I highly recommend them for all your decant needs. They’re really great people, and they’re super professional as well.

Now, on to the hair glosses!

So Below (Haute Macabre collection)

Amber and black copal with black coconut, Sumatran red patchouli, green cardamom pod, and golden musk.

I love this one. It’s a really different take on patchouli; it’s not the dark kind you would expect, it’s much lighter. I get mostly that patch note alongside the coconut, cardamom, and amber. It’s dirty and sexy, but also very tropical.

Sugar Plum Fairy 

Sugar plums, vanilla-infused sugar, tiare, amber musk, apricot peel, and a light dusting of cacao. 

Oh boy, this is sweet. Like really sweet. I primarily smell sugared plums and apricots with a touch of chocolate. I love gourmands, but this is too sweet for me. It’s very candy-like and a bit cloying. If you gravitate towards super sweet/candy scents, you’ll love this.

Mischief (Carnival Diabolique collection)

Blood-spattered cotton candy.

Spun sugar and cinnamon! I’m not getting any actual cotton candy, but I don’t mind that. I find this to be surprisingly autumnal. I would love this, but it unfortunately vanishes from my hair within minutes of application.

Who’s Nibbling at My House? (Carnival Diabolique collection)

Caramel apples, cardamom cakes, hazelnut cream, and butterscotch.

Gourmand heaven. It’s all caramel and butterscotch with a little spice from the cardamom. It’s so warm and gooey and perfect for fall. It actually smells like a richer version of Owl Creek Aleworks.

Solstice Scents Owl Creek Aleworks

Sticky English Toffee Pudding, Blackburn’s Parlor Vanilla Ice Cream, Caramel, Toasted Coconut & Hazelnut, Sugared Pumpkin Cream Stout

I’m a sucker for gourmands of all kinds. I love to bake, and anything that makes me smell like a bakery is going to be a hit. You can buy this from Solstice Scents’ website as well as from the Rhinestone Housewife and Pretty Indulgent. It’s $16 US for 5mL, $75 US for the EDP version and you can also get it in one of their sample packs as well.

In the bottle: Yankee Candle? Very sweet, but kind of artificially so. Mostly pumpkin and toffee.

On the skin: The pumpkin cream stout is really prominent along with the hazelnut and the toffee. The stout cuts the sweetness just enough that it’s not overpowering. It’s really a perfect fall scent; warm, brown, and cozily sweet. My only complaint is that it does seem to disappear quickly on me, but that could also be because I just put a dot on to test it out.

TL;DR: A  sweet blend of pumpkin stout, toffee and hazelnut. Very fall. 4/5
