LOS ANGELES, Nov. 3, 2008 — Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab (BPAL) has released a series of 9 fragrances inspired by “The Graveyard Book,” author Neil Gaiman’s newest bestseller. Scents such as “Eau de Ghoul” and “The Macabray” are based on the characters, locations, and ideas found within the pages of the young adult fantasy novel.
Proceeds from every bottle sold go to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, a nonprofit charitable organization founded in 1986 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of First Amendment rights for members of the comics community.
This perfume series joins Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab’s scents inspired by Neil Gaiman’s “Good Omens,” “Stardust,” “American Gods,” “Anansi Boys,” and “Snow, Glass, Apples.” To date, Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab has raised over $38,000 for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund through sales of their Neil Gaiman-related series.
The collaboration between artistic visionaries is always an exciting and thought-provoking endeavor. Rarely, if ever, though, have modern literary characters been so lovingly and accurately interpreted by a skilled perfumer. Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab’s interpretations of Gaiman’s colorful and thoroughly unique characters are, like the characters themselves, creative masterpieces and not to be missed.
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab specializes in formulating intriguing, compelling body and household blends with a dark, romantic, and sexual tone. Their scents run the aesthetic gamut of romance era, Renaissance, Medieval and Victorian formulas, pagan and mythological blends, and horror/Gothic-themed scents. They have over two decades of experience in the field, and their joy is their work. All of their products are hand-blended in their laboratory.
