Scent Name: Old Man Ackerman’s Instructional Toys
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – The Miskatonic Valley Yuletide Faire, 2012
Scent Description and Notes: “OLD MAN ACKERMAN’S INSTRUCTIONAL TOYS
Educational toys for tots! Learn non-Euclidean calculus, catoptric theory, quantum physics, and the mysteries of Elder magic the fun way!
An ancient baetylus floating within an array of bizarre trapezoidal figures, glimmering tubes, rusting spheres, and whirling gogs formed from peculiar metals, glowing tektites, strangely suspended lead mirrors, and eerie driftings of meteoric dust.” -BPAL
Oil Color: Nearly colorless with the slightest tint of yellow.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant from Absinthetics. On the back, she has the notes of the scent, the title of the scent in orange, the company acronym in bold, and her decanting information. The front has a picture of three multiple-eyed, tentacle-adorned creatures holding caroling books while singing.
- ITI: This smells like lemon Pledge-polished wood and tarnished sterling silver. What a fascinating scent.
- Wet: Lemon and perhaps orange pledge now, with silver and polished brass. Despite all the metallic overtones, I enjoy this scent.
- Dry: Now I get warm wooden toys, some citrus, and warmed gold and bronze. It’s a nice scent and something I’d reach for again.
Other Impressions: “It smells like soap and a citrusy herb.” -Tony
