Haute Macabre is pleased to announce our new collaboration with Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab is now available for a pre-order in the Haute Macabre Shop.
In what will be an on-going collection, the new Haute Macabre + Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab collaboration is launching with two new fragrances, Burying Point and St. Louis #1. Made exclusively for Haute Macabre by master perfumer Elizabeth Barriel, the collection will be based on our favorite cemeteries around the world. The first installment features two dear to my heart, St. Louis #1, located in my home, New Orleans, and Burying Point, the oldest cemetery in Salem.
Burying Point and St. Louis #1 feature label art by Bill Crisafi.
The Burying Point is the oldest cemetery in Salem, MA, dating back to the year 1637. I walked through here on a beautiful summer morning thisyear, and fell in love with the crumbling markers, all decorated with mememto mori markings popular in the era. Our intrepration of it contains notes of damp clusters of brown patchouli, dried maple leaves, black sage, spikenard, and curled, misshapen mandrake roots
Just above the French Quarter in my beloved New Orleans, St. Louis #1 is one of the oldest cemeteries in the city, and the alleged final resting places of VooDoo Queen Marie Laveau and the cruel Delphine LaLaurie. Bottled here with drooping Spanish moss and crumbling marble, sweet olive blossom, 13-year aged black patchouli, and offerings of Bay Rum, Florida water, and tobacco.
Also available are our original fragrances, with label art by Courtney Riot.
