Congratulations to comics_grrl – enjoy your BPAL!
Contrasts make the most interesting pairings. I’m sure you’ve paired leather with lace. And who doesn’t love sweet and salty? Now, allow me to introduce you to pretty and deadly.
Pretty Deadly is a comic book series brought to life through the collaboration of two very talented and imaginative females; writer Kelly Sue Deconnick and artist Emma Ríos. The tale is described as a supernatural western; the rawness of the wild west meets a mix of horror, mythology and fairy tale. It’s the story of Ginny, who is Death’s daughter and a reaper of vengeance. She rides the wind on a horse made of smoke, her face tattooed with the skull marks of her father, looking for her own revenge. The ultimate showdown with Death. Oh yeah, and it’s told by a dead rabbit to a butterfly.
If that’s not begging for a Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab perfume collection, I don’t know what is!
While I have not read the series, I have sniffed the oils, all based on characters in the story. And they gorgeously kick ass, as I imagine the tale itself does too. It’s one of the prettiest BPAL collections I’ve ever smelled. That’s right, I said ever. Combine that with the graphic and eerie illustrated labels, and you’ve got Pretty Deadly.
Have I got you excited? I hope so, because we’re giving you the chance to win all 7 oils! Check out the descriptions below and enter today…

Beauty, The Aggrieved – A white rose draped by a delicate, pale, sheer veil of vanilla, the depth and darkness of her black lace embodied by tobacco absolute, Indonesian patchouli, Bulgarian oakmoss, frankincense, white sandalwood, and myrrh.
Ginny, The Reaper of Vengeance – Sharp tobacco flower and white cognac, a thin layer of smoke, and dusty black pepper pierced by the amber of her eyes.
Lily, The Prostitute – Heady blossoms of jasmine, white gardenia, and magnolia sharpened by neroli, given a voluptuous depth by red patchouli, oakmoss, and cedar.
Molly, The Reaper of Justice – White lime with lily of the valley, oudh, Himalayan cedar, nagarmotha, and tobacco for the sheen of raven feathers, and saffron, white honey, and amber for her fierceness, strength, and courage.

Sissy, The Ascendant – Sassafras and smoke for black vulture feathers, and King mandarin and red musk for the deep red-orange of the vulture’s face.
