Black Ice Fragrance Oil Showcase
VINEVIDA's Black Ice Fragrance oil makes you think of being backstage at a Fashion Week. Teeming with luxury, decadence and glamor. Yet, there is a frisson of tension in the air as things could change at any moment, danger lurks behind every clothes rail and make up mirror.
Fierce florals like Jasmine and Lily strut in first, followed down the fragrance catwalk by fresh Lemon and herbal Lavender. However, it is the final notes of Eucalyptus and Cedarwood that bring the final flourish, to what is an incredible show.
Black Ice Fragrance Oil is all about unashamed luxury and then some. It has that delicious and sophisticated slightly musky fragrance that you expect, but then surprising fresh green notes and twists of Lemon, Eucalyptus and herbal Lavender emerge. Finally, it draws you down into deeply sensual cedarwood.
Floral, citrus, green, woody, and musky all at once, and it envelops you in its complex, sophisticated embrace. Experience the powerful essence of our Black Ice Fragrance Oil. It is perfect for creating an atmosphere that reeks of wealth, beauty and power.
Style, with just a hint of danger. Jasmine, Musk, and Lily strut in like stiletto-clad supermodels being chased by woody Cedarwood and Eucalyptus and cheered by Lemon and Lavender. Step into a fragrance that envelopes you with the courage and confidence to strut your way through the day. Take no prisoners and watch out for Black Ice!
Starting off on those refreshing light notes and deepening sensuously through the scent profile, it is a very versatile fragrance oil, and it's one that we love here at VINEVIDA.

Beauty Ideas With Black Ice Fragrance Oil
Make A Truly Decadent and Sumptuous Bath Oil
Black Ice fragrance oil makes a truly sumptuous bath oil and it is really simple to mix with carrier oils to treat your skin to something deeply nourishing. It will help leave your skin feeling super soft and supple and appear younger.
You can choose whichever carrier oils suit your skin. I recommend using the skin superfood known as Rosehip carrier oil with something equally nourishing like Argan carrier oil, to give you a bath oil like no other.
Blended expertly with Black Ice fragrance oil, you will feel like a Queen bathing in this luxurious and sophisticated elixir.

Ideas For Around the Home
There are so many ways you can use Black Ice fragrance oil around the home that I must edit myself. I get so excited and carried away by its endless possibilities.
I love how sophisticated this Black Ice fragrance oil is, and how it sells luxury, decadence and a hint of danger. It lends itself to those of you who like to have a ‘Power Wardrobe’.
You know, those special shoes that make you walk taller, that wallet or purse that makes you feel like a million bucks and that suit that is so sharp you turn everyone’s head!
It got me thinking that you could use Black Ice to fragrance your wardrobe or at least specific items in it. Scented sachets work wonderfully for this because you can just slide them into your shoes, purse or hang from the coat hanger of your suit. Maybe even drop a couple of sachets in your lingerie drawer.
You can tailor this to suit yourself and control which items you want to scent. Think about developing a matching perfume or toiletries for those days when you need to feel your best and bring your A game.
Here are a couple of articles to get you started in layering your own Signature Scent.
Our Favorite Recipes With Black Ice Fragrance Oil
This is where I will share some of my favorite recipes with Black Ice fragrance oil with you; some you may have seen before, and others will be brand new just for you.
Black Ice Boldening and Bolstering Ball
This is a tried and tested recipe just for you all today. I wanted to give you something that is easy to achieve for yourself at home but feels luxurious to use.
Black Ice Boldening and Bolstering Ball is a playful Rollerball, but with a serious edge.
Sometimes, our confidence dips during the day. It might be because of what someone says to us or a mistake we make or maybe we wonder if people are talking behind our backs.
When this happens we need a little emotional tonic, a psychological lift as it were. I often use scent and essential oils to uplift myself and you can do the same. Carrying a rollerball means you can use it discreetly throughout the day to boost your mood.
I want the main scent of the Black Ice to remain intact, so I have added just two supporting essential oils that will also bolster your mood, make you feel a little bolder and uplift you.
Although, you can leave the essential oils out if you want to and just use the fragrance oil.
Note: The IFRA maximum safety dilution rate for Black Ice fragrance oil in category 5A is 8%. This means in 20 ml of this product, you can use up to 1.6 ml. We are using approximately 0.4 ml (2%) in this recipe.

- 20ml /0.67 fl oz Rollerball and cap.
- Carefully measure and mix all of your ingredients until well combined.

Black Ice Boardroom Reed Diffuser
Pop one of these magical Reed Diffusers in your boardroom or Home Office and you’ll soon be ruling the roost! Super simple to make for yourself, you’ll not buy a commercial version again when you realize how you can tailor make these to compliment both your home and your office.
You will need the following:
- Measuring spoons and jugs
- Stainless steel stirrer
- Suitable bottle for your diffuser (needs to hold at least 100ml)
- Measure out your ingredients into two small jugs.
- Mix the carrier oil and the alcohol but do it slowly and take your time to get them to homogenize nicely together. It is worth taking the time to do this; otherwise, they can split in the bottle.
- Add your fragrance oil and mix it slowly and thoroughly again.
- Using a funnel, decant it into your chosen vessel or bottle.
- Label accurately and clearly with all ingredients and dates for safety purposes.
- Pop your reeds in and allow them to soak up the solution. (See our Top Tip below).
- Position in a place with some airflow to allow the scent to permeate the area. Place on a coaster or mat to protect precious surfaces.
TOP TIP TO GET A HEAD START: Make a weeny bit extra of the diffuser solution, take the reeds, and place them onto a plate big enough to hold the reeds. Pour over the extra solution and soak the reeds until they look saturated or absorbed.
Yes, it is that simple!
