Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab is thrilled to present a series of scents based on Jim Jarmusch’s critically acclaimed film and soundtrack, ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE.
ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE tells the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), who have been lovers for centuries. Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance, but still retain their innate wildness.
Adam, a reclusive underground musician hiding out in the ruins of contemporary Detroit, despairs about human civilization’s decline, and worries about future survival.Eve, who is perhaps 3000 years old to Adam’s 500, takes a longer view of history and is more optimistic. She leaves her home in the ancient city of Tangier to come to his side.
As blood has been tainted by the zombies (humans), the formerly immortal Adam and Eve must secure uncontaminated blood from hospitals or they will perish. Eve’s close friend, Elizabethan dramatist and unacknowledged author of Shakespeare’s plays—Christopher Marlowe (John Hurt), is now an elder vampire who provides Eve with hospital blood. Adam gets his supply from Dr. Watson (Jeffrey Wright), a skittish hematologist who provides safe blood at a price.
Adam and Eve’s precarious footing is further threatened by the uninvited arrival of Eve’s carefree and uncontrollable little sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska). Unlike Adam and Eve, Ava hasn’t yet learned to tame her wilder instincts, and her recklessness concerns Adam.
Driven by sensual photography, trance-like music, and droll humor, Jim Jarmusch’s ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE is a meditation on art, science, memory, and the mysteries of everlasting love.
Jim Jarmusch has long been considered a seminal figure in American independent cinema. His films are often noted for their transcendent minimalism and upturning of traditional genres such as the road movie, western, crime-film, and detective story. Born in Akron, Ohio, Jarmusch lives and works in New York.
Blood Popsicle is kind of a hard one to describe, like the other reviewer mentioned. It’s definitely juicy with a hard edge shining through. Interestingly, it somewhat approximates a blood scent. I find that so impressive. One has to have serious skills to pull that off. When I wore it, the blood scent came through a bit more, but it wasn’t a bad thing. It was really cool and smelled so good. It reminds me of those pricey perfumes you find at the mall but so much better.
Velvet Lilly –
It’s so hard for me to describe, but I love it for that very reason. I swear, it’s dark leather plus that dark velvet dressing gown from the 1800’s plus something good and red- not quite juicy, but not dried either….wet dragon’s blood?……there’s a whisper of aftershave in the very best way……but also a breath of her exotic perfume…but just a breath, in the air….and, maybe it’s all in my head but I swear I smell the chess board too, faintest wood and incense…and yet all of it….melds inexplicably and is all one….beautiful, completely unique, enigmatic love poem of scent….
