Le Noir Bazaar – The Dark Market October 2018 Review
As always, there was a card included that detailed both the items inside as well as their listed value. It seems like the theme here is one of divination; using items to try and glean some insight into the future. Normally divination is seen in fiction as being achieved through supernatural means, so I think for this box it means these items might be a little witchier than usual! Hooray!
Black Cat Candle – Listed Value $12
There will never be a time when I won’t want more Halloween decorations – my husband and I actually set a budget every year, and it usually exceeds the Christmas decoration budget. This candle is equal parts spooky and fun, and I think it’ll look nice in my house long after the holiday has passed.
Black Bat Choker – Listed Value $14
Dear readers, I am dying. This silhouette-cut, vegan leather choker is spooky, cute, and badass all at once! I love the studs around the back and the little studs for his eyes. The only complaint I have is that this feels a little tight around my neck and chokers don’t usually bother me – my friends out there who do NOT like things tight against their throat most likely wouldn’t like this as-is, but I’m sure it could be extended fairly easily.
Lace Mask – Listed Value $12
This whimsical element is so great in this box! I think masks like this one are so pretty, and they’re such a perfect item to make an instant costume. Mask + formal wear of some kind = mysterious masked ball attendee; costume complete! I could also see using this as a decoration, too; possibly with a faux candelabra in the dining room, or even affixed to the wall with some paper bats.
Black Onyx Beaded Bat Bracelet – Listed Value $30
I noticed the high listed value for this bracelet on the card right away; it doesn’t seem quite right, but upon feeling the item itself, it actually is a lot easier to understand. This piece is nice and heavy from the real onyx beads. It feels awesome against my skin, and I loooove that the charm matches the bat earrings (more on those in a minute)!
Handmade Gravestone Hair Clip – Listed Value $14
This is hands-down the most unique hair clip I currently own! This reminds me so much of the famed graveyards of New Orleans. My husband went there in the spring, and his pictures from the tours have the same gothic vibe. I’m familiar with this style of hairclip and I know it certainly won’t hold my extremely thick and curly hair back, but it’ll definitely dress up a bun, which is how I usually wear my hair.
Andromeda’s Curse Samhain Spectre Perfume – Listed Value $10
I was a little leery when I saw this box contained perfume; it can be really hit or miss, I think just because perfume is just incredibly personal. This is sweet, and smoky to the nose, which makes sense because it’s supposed to be vanilla, marshmallow, and smoke! The notes within are listed as Sugar, Marshmallow, Smoke, Tonka Bean, and Vanilla. I did a little reading on Tonka Bean because of its inclusion, and it can sometimes offer notes of cherry to a scent, which I definitely detect in this!
Bat Earrings with Stainless Wires – Listed Value $14
Most of the items in these boxes tend to go with each other pretty well, but I loved that these earrings matched the bracelet, which then coordinated with the choker for a complete look if you so chose! This box is really great about including earrings that will work for someone with sensitive ears; these stainless wires are really appreciated and I think certainly add value to the item itself.
Verdict: Le Noir Bazaar was chock-full of spooky fun this month! I was really looking forward to their Halloween offering this month, and they definitely brought out great items that I wasn’t even expecting.

Value Breakdown: This box costs $35.99 + $7 shipping, which means that each of the 7 items in the box has an average cost of $6.14. This is way, way less than what these items are listed as being worth, and way less than I could’ve found them for by myself!
