+ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE

350 bottles were created for each scent, and when they’re gone, they’re gone.

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.

    :

    Very different scent than most others that I own. Much darker. The jasmine and wood scents come out the most after it has dried on my skin. It gets a lot of compliments! The only perfume I’ve ordered blind (no test before hand), and it worked out great!

    :

    Hal is amazing and the grooviest, sexy, exotic, flower child of music you ever saw.She means business, she’s earnest, but she’s easy about it. The jasmine takes my hand and leads me into those amazing, blackened honey, cedar, wood rhythms, syncopated by the soft ambrette and hay.

    :

    In the bottle: Cedar, sweetened by jasmine and saffron. There’s something incense-like to the blend.
    Wet on skin: Jasmine, saffron, precious woods, and there’s this lingering sweetness (the honey or the vanilla?) in the background
    Dry on skin: Exotic, sweet and spicy woods. I feel that it’s become a much darker and deeper scent when it dried.
    Final thoughts: I was never a fan of the smell of jasmine on my skin, but on rare occasions, I find that the narcotic scent can really add an interesting layer to a perfume; which is the case in Hal. What you get at the end are sweet and exotics woods and spices held together by jasmine (that is not overpowering).
    Key words: exotic, spicy, narcotic
