Take a trip back to your youth and into the magical world of Jim Henson’s Fraggle Rock!
One of my favorite Saturday morning shows was “Fraggle Rock.” The catchy theme song, the fantastic muppets, Jim Henson; what’s not to love? And admit it- you TOTALLY had a favorite Fraggle that you wanted to be.
And now you can get one step closer and smell like your favorite Fraggle thanks to eight new scents from the fantastic folks over at Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab (aka BPAL). Introducing the Fraggle Rock Collection!
Children of the 80s and the forever young at heart will have a hard time choosing just one of these colorful little bottles ($26 each) filled with intriguing and playful scents.
There are five scents based on our favorite Fraggles:
Gobo- Tthe “leader” of the Fraggles, Gobo is an explorer who takes after his Uncle Matt and he’s always ready for a new experience. With essences of tangerine, lemon peel, sugared pink grapefruit and vanilla cream this is both a light yet complex scent. My husband (a bit of an adventurer himself) had declared this his favorite perfume yet. Not a bad review!
Wembley – Did you know that “to wemble” means to be perpetually indecisive in Fragglish? Wembley seems to take forever to make up his mind, often because he’s worried about hurting someone else’s feelings. A nervous optimist, he can find the good in every thing. With scents of white musk, banana, orange blossom honey, pineapple and mint. (Tyna says it smells like Runts candy!)
Boober – The scaredy cat of the group, Boober is a neat-nick who prefers the known (and clean!) to risky runarounds. He lends an air of caution to goings on and makes sure that everyone has clean socks. Smells like freshly-washed laundry, linden blossom, soap suds and a sprinkle of vanilla.
Red – This Fraggle can only be described in action words: rambunctious, energetic, rowdy, outgoing, enthusiastic and athletic. Never one to take the day sitting down, Red can find a game and just a little bit of trouble anywhere she looks. A scent for your inner triathlete – sweet red currant, tangy cranberry, pink musk and spicy pink pepper.
Mokey – I admit that Mokey was my favorite Fraggle. As the free-spirited new age-y mom of the gang, Mokey reminds us all to keep our feet on the ground and our heads in the clouds. A little flighty and seriously sweet hearted, scents of lilac blossoms, violet sugar, orris root, stephanotis and osmanthus will keep you floating though out the day.
Uncle Traveling Matt – The uncle we all wish we had! Writer of many inspirational and informational post cards, Uncle Matt is willing to go where no Fraggle has ever gone before, encouraging the younger Fraggles to travel in his foot steps. A worldly scent with dark chocolate, figgy vanilla, pear and quince.
Don’t worry, BPAL didn’t just pay homage to the Fraggles, there are two scents representing the other creatures residing in the Fraggle world:
Doozers – A Doozer is a species of small worker who works in the radish mines of Fraggle Rock. They live for work, and if a Doozer forgets the joy of working he or she will become a Fraggle! With hints of glittering crystals, soft soil and radish dust, this is both an industrious yet light-hearted scent. It goes on a little strong at first, with the radish being a sharp scent, but it wears down to a fresh and bright finish.
Gorg’s Garden – The Gorg’s are the large humanoid creatures that live above Fraggle Rock. They consider the Fraggles to be pests and are always looking for new ways to keep them out of the garden. In their personal “kingdom,” the Gorgs are farmers just trying to live the dream. Smells like radishes, freshly-turned soil and soft herbs.
Before we get to the comments – and since I know this song has been bopping through your head as you read the review – let’s take a look at the addictive opening theme song of the beloved television show:
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab never fails to thrill, and I really love what I’ve tried from this collection. I can’t wait to hear what the rest of our testing team thinks of the latest from our friend’s at BPAL!
