Scent Name: The Deep Ones

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – A Picnic in Arkham

Scent Description and Notes: I think their predominant colour was a greyish-green, though they had white bellies. They were mostly shiny and slippery, but the ridges of their backs were scaly. Their forms vaguely suggested the anthropoid, while their heads were the heads of fish, with prodigious bulging eyes that never closed. At the sides of their necks were palpitating gills, and their long paws were webbed. They hopped irregularly, sometimes on two legs and sometimes on four. I was somehow glad that they had no more than four limbs. Their croaking, baying voices, clearly used for articulate speech, held all the dark shades of expression which their staring faces lacked.

Black algae, drooping seaweed, salty brine, and crushed coral. – BPAL

Bottle Design and Artwork:  This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz).  The label wrapped around the bottle features an Art-Deco inspired phoenix with the the name of the company next to the phoenix. On the other side, the title of the scent written in large, clear black font outlined with red on the front.


  • In the Imp (ITI):  Aquatic toilet cleaner and brine.  Ick.
  • Wet:  I get something that smells sweeter and a bit muskier, which might be the coral.  However, the brine and aquatic are intense.
  • Dry: Okay, it is less offensive as it dries. I get a pleasant aquatic with lots of brine and that oddly sweet and musky note.  It’s borderline pleasant.
Other Impressions:  “It smells like those Christmas apple-spice candles.” -Tony
