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 The information you see here is out-of-date, and most of these oils (and their leftovers) are gone.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).

I'm interested in one of each, but with the holidays comin' 'round, I'm not sure if I could pull off $50. |D Is there any chance you'd take like some cash and anything on this list (http://slayheim.livejournal.com/24404.html)? I haven't posted it anywhere, since I don't want to do any shipping during the winter. /is lazy.

Also: how would you be labeling them? Please no tape/stickers around it, since they always come off on me. ;A;

This is quite a cheeky request but if you get to the point of ordering and no one decides they want the empty bottles/bottles with 1 remaining decant space in them could I be so bold as to ask if I can purchase the final decants in bottles and empties? I'd like a full collection of the empties for display but know that at least half the scents wouldn't work for me. :(

I'm only asking in the event no one claims the empties and you don't want them yourself. :)

I am very interested in trying some of these! But I didn't see written anywhere whether you ship to Canada or if this is a US-only offer. Please let me know!

Thanks.

I assume you are wanting the Boomslang bottle? I ask because although I don't love the scent, my maiden name is Booms and so I really want the bottle itself :) I could buy a decant or two in order to get the bottle...

I'd like a decant of Green Tree Viper and to add on a bottle of Hod and 6 (3 sets of 2 as wand caps come in 2's) wand caps please.

i feel stupid, but i was checking out the circle and accidentally answered the anaconda poll in an attempt to see the results. i'm pretty positive i clicked on the first response, so you should disregard my vote. sorry about that! *hangs head in embarrassment*

Can I still get a decant each of King Cobra and Death Adder to Canada? I was undecided before but now I kind of want to try :)

Could I get decants of Faiza, Green Tree Viper and Cottonmouth, if they're still available?

Thanks!
