My favorite Goth perfumers - Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab - perfume review.
Review by Ginger Mayerson
What they say about it:
LES FLEURS du MAL (Funeral Oils)
What I thought:
Very strong on the lilac, like overwhelming everything else, when I first put it on. It mellows fairly quickly, or mellowed fairly quickly on me, I felt it was still more lilac than rose on me (might be different with your body chemistry). The wisteria adds to the lilac intensity, or vice versa, for an intense floral rush. I'm a great lover of rose scents, (as shall be revealed to faithful readers, every scent sample I selected has rose in it) but the rose in this fragrance was very muted; more muted than suited me. Although I found the lilac and wisteria scent unusual and an interesting change of pace, it's brighter and perkier than I, as a woman of a certain age and temperament, would care to wear on a regular basis. I feel this is a scent for a very young or very mature woman. Or a middle aged woman who looks better in pastels than I do.
