Burner Perfume No.12: Black Hole No.3 in the Pandemic Trilogy

Inspired by the 2021 Burning Man art theme “The Great Unknown”, what could be more unknowable than the inside of a black hole?! Once something passes the event horizon and is pulled into the singularity, it is lost to the topsy-turvy heart of a black hole.

Black Hole is a cheeky perfume that references all the craziness that was/is 2020-2021. Covid continues its rampage with new and improved variants. Mask mandates come and go, our politics dictate our lives with serious consequences to our health and ability to pursue a life of equality and opportunity. Science and fact-based data are suspect while “alternative” truths add to the overall chaos.

It’s enough to make you feel like you fell down a black hole and have emerged into an alternate universe. Maybe some things are the same, maybe everything is different and the only constant is you.

Black Hole the perfume is space suffused with darkness. Our arrival to the Event Horizon is a chorus of licorice notes (think black jelly beans in space). Having passed through the Event Horizon, we are then pulled into the Singularity where a whiff of gunpowder, smoke, oakmoss, patchouli, and vetiver reveals the dark heart of our void. Finally, we drift into the great unknown with a hint of black pepper, metallic rose and musk.

Returns and exchange details

I want you to love your purchase! The best way to ensure this is to try a sample size before investing in a full size product. Remember that everyone has unique skin chemistry so it pays to "try before you buy".

Since perfume is a body product, I can't except returns for obvious hygiene concerns. The exceptions to this rule would be an incorrect item being shipped or a faulty mechanism such as a sprayer that didn't work.
