The Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab are launching four new limited editon fragrances. Two are inspired by the country of Ukraine and will hep to raise money for charities to aid Ukrainians and two are inspired by a poem of Kahlil Gibran’s, will raise funds for Lambda Legal.

The company say: "Such are the world’s problems that we could release a new fundraiser perfume every day and still fail to reach every worthy cause. However, this weekend we crafted two new scents to help Ukrainians in crisis, and two more to address the LGBTQ calamity unfolding in Texas."


All profits from the following two blends will be split between United Help Ukraine, who are providing medical supplies and humanitarian aid, and World Central Kitchen:

Nightingale

The national bird of Ukraine. A lovely and powerful song translated into scent: toasted bourbon vanilla, sweet oats and honey, cardamom, and cream.

Sunyashniki

The sunflower is the national flower of Ukraine, a symbol of the life-affirming power of the sun that has, in recent days, become a fierce symbol of determination and resistance. This is a scent as bright as the vibrant petals of the sunflower, and as warm and joyous as the sun: flaxen amber, golden musk, neroli, lemon leaf and rind, frankincense, and sweet cedar.

All profits from the following two, inspired by a poem of Kahlil Gibran’s, will raise funds for Lambda Legal who has joined the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas, Equality Texas, and Transgender Education Network of Texas to form TxTransKids.org, an initiative that fights for the rights of LGBTQ Texans in the courts, the legislature, local governments, and schools.

And Though They Are With You Yet They Belong Not To You

A gentle vanilla sandalwood blend, serene but mighty.

You May House Their Bodies But Not Their Souls

A woody, deep patchouli with bourbon vanilla, rich amber, and soft golden skin musk.


All four fragances are available now from the BPAL website

These sound very interesting and I think it's great that some of the proceeds will go to help charities in Ukraine. Hope these become available near me to give them a try.

Answering myself: The poem is the chapter called On Children from The Prophet. Honestly, I ought to have The Prophet memorized by now. I've read it so frequently.
