The Soundtrack scents for Only Lovers Left Alive were a tremendous joy to work on. The score is phenomenal: it is heart-clutchingly atmospheric - dark and moody, desolate and languid. The creation of the soundtrack scents involved hours of analyzing each track while attempting to not only capture the tone of the music itself, but to also emphasize the structure of the rhythm, pitch, tempo, and texture of the sound through scent.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Only Lovers Left Alive Reviews! Starting with our immortal lovers, of course, and a bonus track of my favorite scent from the entire collection. 

EVE: This perfume opens with a cloud of roses gilded with honey and saffron, warm and inviting. As time goes on, it deepens into a lingering breath of incense and the barest touch of bitter greenery, but always anchored by the sweet dust that belongs to stacks of old, much-loved books.

ADAMLeather and dust, and the smell of empty rooms full of memory. As time passes, there’s a hint of salt, as if from unshed tears. The growing warmth of the wood of musical instruments almost mask it, but it circles back to the scent memory of a leather jacket worn on a cold night.

BLOOD POPSICLEThe good stuff”. Honey and amber and salt, wrapped in blood-red velvet. The perfume version of a shiver of delight. Send bottles of this to me in tribute, for it is possibly the best thing I’ve ever smelled. 

Thank you to Beth and everyone at BPAL for sending me this collection for review! Go! Purchase gorgeous scents! (Send me all the Blood Popsicle!)

Love.
