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…


Alice, The Reaper of Cruelty – Bourbon geranium emboldened by the rich scent of aged patchouli, the sweetness of peach, raspberry leaf, and bourbon vanilla, surrounded by a butterfly swarm of spicy carnation and Italian bergamot.


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.


Sarah, The Mother Bear – Practical scents; warm, nurturing, wise, and strong: tonka bean, soft brown leather, myrrh, white sage, gurjum balsam, Ceylon cinnamon bark, red sandalwood, sweet tobacco, and a touch of gunsmoke.


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. Blue lilac and chamomile / opoponax and vetiver for the blue and black of her eyes. Vanilla bean and fig represent her innate goodness and instinctive kindness.

  1. I’m really curious about Sarah. I love myrhh and can’t say I’ve ever smelled a gunsmoke accord.

  2. Sarah looks really intriguing – also I have to say this is some of my favorite bottle art!

  3. Lily looks the most like something I’d wear, but the most intriguing are Molly and Beauty <3

  4. Marjolein Mattaar

    Sissy seems such a strange combination of notes that I can’t possibky imagine what it would smell like. It makes it a rather mysteriuos scent.

  5. I’m very interested in Ginny, The Reaper of Vengeance. I need more pepper scents in my life <3

  6. All of the scents sound very interesting! The one I am most excited about is Beauty! The artwork on the bottle and the whole story line is pretty rad! I’ve had my eye on this line ever since it dropped! Beth Barrial is a scent wizard!

  7. I really, really love Pretty Deadly. I really, REALLY love BPAL. I’ve been chewing my nails over which scent to buy for the last two months! Sarah is probably my first choice, with Lily and Sissy as close seconds. But all of them look so delicious I can’t decide.

  8. They all sound interesting and unique, but I think I would be most excited to try Sarah, The Mother Bear.

  9. Skye James-MacLeod

    Oh, Lily is the one I think I’m most interested in, but the entire collect looks interesting.

  10. I want Beauty and Sarah so much! Ginny could be amazing if the pepper doesn’t get too aggressive.

  11. These all sound fantastic, but I’m most curious about Alice…hopefully will get to try that one :)

  12. So many I’d love to win since so many are really intriguing and I’m wondering what might work best for me but I’ll pick Sissy- pretty much anything w/red musk works superbly on me. :o)

  13. This is awesome! I want to try them so bad. It is hard to choose which one I’d like to try the most, but I think Sissy.

  14. Sarah and Ginny…. they both sound lovely and it’s been so long since I’ve been able to treat myself to BPAL <3

  15. Beauty sounds so unique and lovely! Scents with rose in them last rather long on my skin and the darker notes to it make it sound so intriguing. It would go well with my new little black dress~
    Even if I don’t win, I’ll likely try very hard to get my hands on this scent.

  16. Sarah, I think the notes sound lovely and I’dbe excited to see how they worked together!

  17. When I first saw the collection I picked “Molly”. I love ravens. This would be such a wonderful, wonderful contest to win! Good luck to all and thank you guys for having such a nice contest. Take care. : )

  18. It’s so difficult to pick which scent I’d be most excited to win, but I’ll go with “Beauty, The Aggrieved”

  19. Diane Starner-Gillespie

    Bummer, I don’t have a smart phone and one can’t get an Instagram account without a smart phone :(
    So I can’t get the Instagram entries, boo hoo :'(

  20. rachlovespenguins

    I think I’m the most intrigued by Sissy but I’d love to try any of them!

  21. Alice sounds like it would be amazing! It’s got a whole bunch of notes that work really well with my skin chemistry, and to have them all blended together in one scent? aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh

  22. Sarah. I have a decant and it’s beautifully blended; all the scents reflect their characters perfectly!

  23. I’m very excited about the prostitute scent. I love anything with strong, heady florals in it.

  24. Jasmine, white gardenia and magnolia?
    …yeah, I’m difinitely the post excited for Lilly the Prostitute

  25. I’m excited to try these! I’ve heard especially great things about Alice and Sissy!

  26. I’m excited to try all of them, but probably most of all Alice, the Reaper of Cruelty.

  27. Being a consummate fan of this most talented trio (i.e.: Kelly Sue McCormick/Emma Ríos/Jordie Bellaire) I’d go for the complete set, but forced to choose one I’ll go with Ginny, The Reaper of Vengeance.

  28. I’m extremely ashamed! I completely re-invented Kelly Sue’s surname. It’s DeConnick, actually! I hope to get those bottles, anyway! ;)

  29. Beauty!! That scent has my favorite notes in it. But I’m in the market for some fresh scents! This would be perf

  30. Molly’s my favorite character, and her scent sounds gorgeous. They all do. It would be nearly impossible for me to choose one to buy in a normal situation. Which is why I’m so excited about this giveaway!

  31. I’m really intrigued by the Alice scent, but then again, having the potential to be more like Deathface Ginny is always a bonus.

  32. I would love to win Alice because although I’d love the tabacco scent with Ginny’s, I love most peach scents/flavors so I’d like Alice’s!

  33. Hello! These oils are so cool! I would most want to use their Lily, The Prostitute. – Jasmine, white gardenia, and magnolia?! Yes, please. Thank-you!

  34. Sharon Siqueiros

    Alice, The Reaper of Cruelty seems like my mood today(hahaha)
    They all sound amazing!!

  35. well… since my name is Ginny I think I’m most excited to see what Ginny smells like but I’d mostly wear Lily or Molly but with all the unique fragrances used I would love to just smell them!

  36. Beauty sounds it would be my favorite. Or Alice. Or Lily. Or Sissy. Or all of them.

  37. alice and molly both sound amazingly delicious!!! p.s. thank you for doing this giveaway!! <3

  38. I’m excited about all of them. I am a comic book reader and a perfume lover – absolutely perfect.
