These are sample sizes. Full sized bottles are stocked at Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Black Phoenix Trading Post. As limited edition collections, these scents will be allowed to sell out. Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab & Trading Post have had a well developed decanter culture which I have been a part of for many, many years. While I communicate with them on the regular, they are not an official Ajevie partner and to support the traditions already in place, all Black Phoenix decants are non-profit on my end.
