Guys, if you speak Japanese or Korean, or even if you don’t, please send a message to sercgakisei because he’s a disabled non-binary Korean/Chinese/Japanese teen who has been bullied by weeaboos on this site for not speaking English very well. His father has taken over his account and will translate the English messages for him.
please do this
- Anubis - His scent is a blend of holy myrrh, storax, balsam, and embalming herbs. I just splattered a bunch all over my computer as I was trying to take a whiff (at least it’s not the stinky one). Now I smell holy and somber with a tinge of sweet herb. Definite funeral perfume. It’s similar to Comme des Garçons’ Incense Avignon (fav), but with much less incense. I’m not going to clean it up, I think I’ll just let it dry on my keyboard.
- Herbert West - Aftershave, embalming fluid, and splatterings from a panoply of reanimation reagents. Did I ever tell you about the time I almost went to mortuary school? Are you surprised? This perfume makes me want to go back. I’m smelling aftershave and chemicals, mostly. I’ve smelled embalming fluid before; it is definitely present here. It’s metallic. Not a bad smell at all. It’s quite handsome mixed with everything else. If I were to go on a date with a funeral director, this would be my scent of choice.
- Ultraviolet - Lush violet and neroli spiked hard with eucalyptus and a sliver of mint. I smell this and I immediately think of my mother yelling at me to wake up for school. My mom’s favorite essential oils have always been violet, eucalyptus, and mint. The sweet, sharp stuff. This scent is loud at first, then calms down after a few minutes. It’s loving and firm. Just like my mother. It has the best intentions, but I can imagine how it might overwhelm some people. I like it.
- Cathedral - Venerable and solemn: the scent of incense smoke wafting through an ancient church. A true ecclesiastical blend of pure resins. Someone’s lit a church on fire. This is the smell of the smoky, ashy gray remnants of an abandoned church that is still visited by parishioners offering candles and prayers. It’s dark and sad. Not easily forgettable. If I wore this in combination with Anubis, I bet it’d smell a little more like Incense Avignon…for 1/4 of the price (full sizes are only $17.50 each!). I’ll have to experiment later.
- Kumari Kandam - Thick incense, clay, stone, and hothouse blooms with a spike of frost, a hint of decay, and heavy, dolorous aquatic notes. Now, these perfumes are carefully hand mixed by the lovely people behind BPAL. I applaud them for being able to combine all of these unusual essences into something cohesive. Every single note listed in the description is present in equal parts - even the hint of decay! It smells wonderfully strange. The aqua kick at the end really gets me. I’m definitely ordering a full size of this one. I want this to be my signature scent.
- Tezcatlipoca - Deep cocoa laced with patchouli, leather armor, ritual incense, and a touch of Xochiquetzal’s flowers. Cocoa galore, phew! The flowery notes are more apparent after the first few seconds of application. I’m getting incense and leather as the base notes. It’s a little dusty. Much more wearable when it’s dried down. It makes me think of my grandparents’ house. My grandma might like this scent. It’s familial. I think I’ll wear this one around the holidays when my entire family and I get together.
- Whip - Agony and ecstasy: black leather and damp red rose. Mostly damp red rose. I wanted more leather. There’s honestly nothing to it besides rose and leather, and I have to inhale very deeply to get to the leather. I thought this straightforward mixture would be more appealing to my nostrils, but I suppose I prefer meticulous complexity in my perfumes. It’s not terrible. Pretty great, actually. Just disappointing. Like getting into a relationship that you know isn’t going to last but doing it anyway hoping for the best.
- Yorick - Grave dirt, bone, decay, angel’s trumpet, and moldering scraps of shroud: the essence of finality. Yeah. Yes. This smells like zombies. It’s sickening, but I grew up watching zombie movies with my dad so I’m still fond of it. Have you seen the classic Lucio Fulci movie Zombi (1979)? This smell reminds me of that movie (highly recommend watching it if you’re also a fan of the genre). It made me think of this image in particular. Ahh, oh my god. I’m so happy to have a perfume that smells like reanimated dead people. Tina Belcher would impressed.
- Scarecrow (free sample with purchase) - The scent of a hot wind blowing through desolate, scorched, barren fields. I didn’t handpick this one, so it doesn’t reflect me in any way. It’s grassy for sure. Green. Doesn’t make me think of scarecrows (maybe I’m just hanging around the wrong scarecrows?). I’m getting an image of Stephen King in Creepshow. You know, that story when he grows grass all over his body. He smelled just like this.
- The Antikythera Mechanism (free sample with purchase) - Teakwood, oak, black vanilla, and tobacco. Yikes, no. What is teakwood and why does it smell so awful? Could it be the tobacco? Made me gag! And it’s making my eyes water now. I once encountered a man on the NL bus who smelled like this and it triggered my hypoglycemia. People who’ve reviewed it on the site describe it as “golden” and “comforting” - are you guys okay (not that I’m one to talk, I like a perfume that smells like dirt and rot)? Not for me.
As if my outfits didn’t confuse people enough. Now you know that I’m gonna smell like burial grounds hidden in the deep sea. I’m surprised that these tiny perfume samples have evoked so much thought from me. Now I know that perfume therapy might work really well if I needed it. I’m planning to order full sizes or Anubis, Kumari Kandam, and Yorick as soon as I have the fund$. Possibly Cathedral, if it mixes well with Anubis. Herbert West, Ultraviolet, and Texcatlipoca can wait. Whip and Scarecrow weren’t enough to keep me interested. I’m excited to tell stories by mixing my favorite scents. And I’m even more excited to try new samples in the future.
Shoutout to arabellesicardi for mentioning Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab in her recent Refinery 29 article, 8 Indie Beauty Brands You Need to Know. I’m so thankful for the recommendation. The prices are affordable, the people behind the company are awesome, and they have the most extensive directory of perfume topics I’ve ever read. Despite that last sample, they get a 10/10 from me. Perfect score. It’s true love!
i really want this bart watch
These individuals gave their versions of the Ferguson, Mo., teenager’s last moments.
Aug. 19 2014
As of press time, at least five eyewitnesses in the Michael Brown shooting case have come forward. All five witnesses had distinct vantage points: One person was with Brown during the incident, one woman was inside her vehicle, another woman observed the incident from her apartment balcony, one man was inside his apartment and another man was standing outside.
None of the eyewitnesses in this roundup—save for two—knew each other prior to the shooting. They could not have imagined that their lives would forever be intertwined as a result of what they allegedly witnessed that sunny afternoon in Ferguson, Mo.
YES that is so good have fun!!
thank u so much!!!! <3
Receipts, receipts, we got em, quite literally. Here are four receipts which have gone public via internet in the recent past:
- “Ching” and “Chong” — That’s what Chick-Fil-A labelled two UC Irvine students in December 2011. The image was posted on the internet, blogged on tumblr, and the offending employee named Lia got fired amid much defensive PR fluff from Chick-Fil-A.
- “Lady Chinky Eyes” — That’s how Papa John’s in New York City referred to Minhee Cho in January 2012. Cho tweeted the receipt, prompting Papa John’s to post on apology on its Facebook page and terminate the offending employee.
- “Chinx” — That’s how Hooters in Fresh Meadows, Queens, described Kisuk Cha and his girlfriend when they ordered wings and shrimp there in September 2012. Cha sued. The employee resigned and as far as I know the lawsuit is ongoing.
- “Ching Chong Lee” — That’s what CVS in New Jersey named Hyun Jin Lee in February 2013. Following Cha’s example, Lee has filed a lawsuit. CVS says the employee will be “counseled and trained”.
They keep giving us these receipts and we’ll keep filing lawsuits. Let’s do this.
Always keep fighting.
Why White people are not coming out against the racism in Ferguson. He is dead on.
I could chill with this dude.
"The race problem in this country is a white problem"
White folks following us should watch this.
