Celebrate October's Blood Moon With BPAL

Every month contains its own lunar holiday, and our beloved sponsor Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab anoints each of them with a signature fragrance and rad T-shirt design. Welcome to October and the waxing of the Blood Moon:

In October, the crop harvest has past, and all hands turn to the Hunt: the third and final harvest before winter. Blood Moon shines over huntsmen as they ride over reaped grain in pursuit of their prey.

In Christian mythology, Blood Moon may have a darker significance:

"And I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind." -- Revelation 6:12-13

The feral scent of the heat of the chase, deep woods, undulating musks, brushed by forest flora, swirled in the incense of the anointed cherub that covereth,and touched by blood-dimmed lunar oils.
