THIS CIRCLE IS CLOSED. The information you see here is out-of-date, and most of these oils (and their leftovers) are gone. Thanks for your interest.


I am doing a decant circle of Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs perfume oils. LJ friends, most of you will not give a good god-damn about this decant circle, but you're totally welcome to hop on board if you're curious. Each decant is 1ml (in a tiny glass vial with a wand applicator, like the teensy ones you get at perfume counters), but since they are perfume oils and thusly more concentrated than alcohol-based perfume sprays, these little vials ("imps" or decants, in the jargon) will both last MUCH longer on your skin and clothing, and are enough for several applications; I generally get at least 7 out of an imp. Let me know if you're curious!

For those in the know: A snake set, including Snake Oil (but NOT including Faiza, since she's not Snake Oil-based) will run you $50 even and I'll leave shipping free because I love you. A FULL set will just be that one imp extra, $53.75. Up to the full set, packing & shipping is $3 with DC via Paypal; if you want add-ons, it'll go up fifty cents per bottle. (So, if you want to add on 2 bottles from the Lab, it would be $4 for shipping.)

If you would like the imp in a bottle and all other imps are sold, let me know! First come, first served. For addon bottles, please use PPcalc; the price will be lab price + Paypal fees.

Sounds good?
The original, the one, the only . . . Snake oil! $2.75 per decant or FREE with all the other snakes.

If ALL of the snakes have sufficient interest, I will order the whole set and end up with an imp of the elusive ANACONDA. Let me know how you'd like to see it distributed!

[Poll #1492710]

At the moment, I plan to place the order on December 15th to give ample time for add-ons. This puts ETA of the bottles after New Year and decanting done a few days after that, barring any nasty cases of pipette thumb. This does mean any Yule bottles are totally game for add-ons!

I will keep this post updated regarding the status of this order! If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate--ask!

UPDATES:

12/2 decanting supplies ordered! A full gross of vials, yay!
12/4 decanting supplies received! Not a broken vial among them. Also, packing supplies received, and the bubble mailers are TWICE as big as I thought they were. I will probably be cutting them in half for the sake of security (so the package is tighter around the decants), or just folding them in half and taping them that way.
12/15 ORDER HAS BEEN PLACED. Free shipping from the lab, woo!
12/31 CLICK AND SHIP OH MY GOODNESS. I'm super psyched, you guys.
1/5 I got the package! This is more bottles than my entire collection, holy crap. I also got my supplementary package from Pilot Vials as well. I'll be busy tomorrow night, but I'll see what I can get done Thursday (1/7) and Friday (1/8) so packages can go out (or at least start going out) on Saturday.
1/19: AN UPDATE! The label-making process has taken WAY longer than I anticipated (this is the first time I've done this, I had no idea) and I had some minor spillage which require extensive re-labelling so I don't send out stained labels. AND firefox crashes every time I print something with paypal shipping. Nonetheless, be assured that packages are being wrapped up with care & frimps and going to move toward you this week. DC numbers for all! (Well, for everyone in this country, anyway.)

Also, the final word on Anaconda is: complicated, unfortunately! One imp can only stretch so far (about ten of them, actually--beyond that and it's barely a drop of oil in the vial). Some people will get testable amounts of anaconda; everyone else will get extra imps and decants (hopefully ones you'll like, based on your snake pit preferences).

Like slayheim, I am a bit short on cash - do you see anything here that you might want?: http://crime-of-truth.livejournal.com/87475.html. Otherwise, I can pay at the end of the week. I want:

BANDED SEA SNAKE
DEATH ADDER
HABU
SAW-SCALED VIPER

Paying late is totally fine--I myself am not being SUPER spendy right now, sadly, but I miiiiight be interested in Now Winter Nights Enlarge--I just have to test my imp of it on a clean arm.

If you end up liking it, I'll swap you the bottle for those 5, the price is about the same...

From: [identity profile] hazakaza.livejournal.com
Sure! I'll get back to you about it. And if not, we might be able to work something out with soaps, since I saw you have a big pile of soaps and OMG soaps.

Date: 2009-12-01 07:28 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] crime-of-truth.livejournal.com
That also works for me! We'll be in touch. =)

Ahhhhhhh, it's as I feared. I'm testing the Now Winter Nights Enlarge and it's doing the terrible caramel thing where it gives me a horrible sugar headache. D:

How about instead we can do Grenade and Quark half-bars, and then if you paypal me $8 and I can use paypal shipping for decants. Does that work for you?

Date: 2009-12-02 03:13 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] crime-of-truth.livejournal.com
That's fine with me! PM me your address so I can get out the soap bars and I'll paypal you at the end of the week!

From: [identity profile] hazakaza.livejournal.com
Oh, PLEASE don't rush it, seriously--this isn't even getting ordered til the middle of the month!

Date: 2009-12-08 09:06 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] crime-of-truth.livejournal.com
Shoot, I can't remember if I ever paid you (I'm in the middle of finals and things are crazy). I think I did...maybe?

Date: 2009-12-08 09:09 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] crime-of-truth.livejournal.com
Eep, my records don't say that I did, but let me know what yours say so I can get you your payment/soap bars right away!

Date: 2009-12-08 10:13 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hazakaza.livejournal.com
My records say you didn't, but I'm obviously still holding the spots for you. Seriously, don't worry about it!

Hey, it looks like I might be able to get my hands on some TWO AND A HALF YEAR OLD Snake Oil! Might you be interested in a decant? (The bottle isn't full, so it might not be a full decant, and I would have to math out how much it would cost, I just want to gauge interest.)

Date: 2009-12-11 07:29 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] crime-of-truth.livejournal.com
I am, but I have a 1+ year old bottle aging away in a cool dark place...I think I can wait...it would depend on the cost of this decant.

Date: 2009-12-11 07:31 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hazakaza.livejournal.com
It definitely won't be over the cost of the other decants; I would want to have the bottle in my hands before taking any cash for it, but it would proabably math out nicely to something like $3 a decant.

Date: 2009-12-11 07:33 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] crime-of-truth.livejournal.com
Then I am interested! But if 6 other people want it more than me, they can have it. =)

Date: 2009-12-11 07:34 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hazakaza.livejournal.com
Okay! I'll put you down as tentative on my spreadsheet and I'll comment back once things are more solid.

Date: 2009-12-14 05:06 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] crime-of-truth.livejournal.com
I don't see my lj name in any of the slots...should I pay now? I just want to make sure I will get everything I want!

Date: 2009-12-14 05:12 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hazakaza.livejournal.com
Ah! I'm sorry, you are on my spreadsheets (which are my master list, but has personal info like addresses, so I don't post it here) but I somehow forgot to update the post itself! You are on all of those lists now. (Including the aged SO list, which is not live on this post yet because I don't have the bottle itself just yet!)

And you can hold off on payment as long as you need to--in fact, I might almost prefer to hold off if you definitely want the aged SO, because then we can get full payment done in one paypal sending, instead of two.

Date: 2009-12-14 05:27 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] crime-of-truth.livejournal.com
That's perfect, thank you!

Date: 2010-01-07 06:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] crime-of-truth.livejournal.com
Soooo...the package has arrived! Since I haven't paid yet/I am holding those soaps for you, I just want to know how much I owe, and where I can mail you your soaps! I'll be on vacation until about the 15th or 16th, so when I get back, your stuff will go out!

Date: 2010-01-07 08:08 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hazakaza.livejournal.com
It's just $8 to hazakaza at gmail dot com, and I can re-PM you my address :D

Date: 2010-01-07 08:13 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] crime-of-truth.livejournal.com
Would it be too much trouble to reply to my payment e-mail with your address? It would be a lot easier for me to keep track of that way, but whatever's easiest is fine.

Date: 2010-01-07 08:14 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hazakaza.livejournal.com
Oh sure! Whatever works for you, dude.
