Haute Macabre Tenth Anniversary Celebration Sale

Ten years ago this weekend, Haute Macabre launched. To celebrate our anniversary, we are offering a 20% discount on our complete Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab collection of perfumes and hair glosses, and on the Sabbat Poster, with code “Henbane” at checkout in the HM Shop.

I launched Haute Macabre to fill a void that I had found in the world of fashion blogging, there was a distinct lack of sites dedicated to a darker aesthetic. Now it seems almost far fetched to imagine that, as the “goth” and occult looks are so immensely popular, but even a decade ago, it was still something that had to be actively searched out.

I cannot believe that HM has come so far, and am so incredibly grateful for the support and for the community that has been built around it in these years. Thank you all, endlessly. Through this community I have truly found my family, and myself. For the first time in my life, I am finally comfortable in my own skin, and I hope that the support and comfort of the world around Haute Macabre has been able to do the same for some of you.

I hope that over the next ten years, Haute Macabre continues to mature & grow, and I promise to always maintain the level of integrity and devotion that I have in this first decade.

Please use code “Henbane” at checkout in the Shop for a 20% discount code through Monday at midnight on our collection of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab perfumes and hair glosses, and on our Sabbat Poster, designed by my partner, Jordan Barlow.

Haute Macabre: The original fragrance by Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab for HM.

Oak leaf, bourbon vanilla, almond husk, and black leather accord darkened by a 13-year aged black patchouli. My personal favorite of our collection, I’ve gone through countless bottles of my own!
Available as a fragrance oil and a hair gloss

The Mummies of Mexico City: Deep in an underground crypt beneath a monastery school dating back to the 1600s, rest twelve naturally mummified bodies. Going down the staircase leading to the crypt, the temperature begins to drop and the air shifts from the heavy heat to a dry, earthy scent. Confronted by the mummies is the sharp juxtaposition from the angelic and opulent relics of the upper levels of the museum, reminding us of our own earthy boundaries, and that we shall all return to the dust.

Church incense, ornate gold, old lace, and dust. A sacred, secret scent, recalling residual whispers of incense settling into the ancient, forgotten dust.
Available as a fragrance oil and a hair gloss

Esbat: The ecstatic Dance under the full, bright Moon

A ragged canopy of moonflower and morning glory, dew-touched mosses creeping over gnarled oak roots, and shimmering beams of mugwort, cuckoo flower, and rose mallow.

St. Louis #1: A love letter to my home, New Orleans. 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.

Drooping Spanish moss and crumbling marble, sweet olive blossom, 13-year aged black patchouli, and offerings of Bay Rum, Florida water, and tobacco

Laurel Hill: Inspired by Philadelphia’s Laurel Hill Cemetery, where I spent a hot summer afternoon once, exploring its inhabitants and watching an intense thunderstorm roll in over its gardens, danced with ghosts in an unlocked receiving vault, and collected animal bones that were offered to me. This is my gift back, to share with all of you.

Mountain laurel petals limned in pale pink settling among boughs of hemlock, soft mosses, and dark lichens. (also Sam’s Mom’s favorite of the entire collection!)

So Below: That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracle of the One Thing.

Amber and black copal with black coconut, Sumatran red patchouli, green cardamom pod, and golden musk.
Available as a fragrance oil and a hair gloss

Burying Point: 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 this year, and fell in love with the crumbling markers, all decorated with memento mori markings popular in the era. Label art by Bill Crisafi.

Damp clusters of brown patchouli, dried maple leaves, black sage, spikenard, and curled, misshapen mandrake roots
Available as a fragrance oil and a hair gloss
