Scent Name:  Yog-Sothoth

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –  Springtime in Arkham

Scent Description and Notes: “It was an All-in-One and One-in-All of limitless being and self — not merely a thing of one Space-Time continuum, but allied to the ultimate animating essence of existence’s whole unbounded sweep — the last, utter sweep which has no confines and which outreaches fancy and mathematics alike. It was perhaps that which certain secret cults of earth have whispered of as YOG-SOTHOTH, and which has been a deity under other names; that which the crustaceans of Yuggoth worship as the Beyond-One, and which the vaporous brains of the spiral nebulae know by an untranslatable Sign…

The perfume of eternity in vast, unknowable space. A glittering oil, ephemeral, iridescent, and horrifying in its immeasurable emptiness. This is the scent of air and darkness. -BPAL

Oil Color: – I cannot tell the color of the oil by looking into the brown apothecary bottle.

Bottle Design and Artwork:  This is a 5ml standard brown apothecary bottle.  The label extends just under halfway around the bottom.  The label features the name of the company and the phrase “Perfume Oil Blend”  in thin beige font along the bottom with the collection name in small red block font just above the company name.  The scent name is in a rust color above the star itself and is centered above a pentacle with an eye in the center.   All of this is set against a dry orange-rind colored label background.  It is similar to the image below, but slightly different because it is an older bottle.

  • ITB:  It smells like old musk, light floral perfume, but it is ephemeral as I can’t seem to pine down the notes with any certainty.
  • Wet: Okay, I’ve nailed down must, which is almost civet-like, something slightly powdery…it’s so confusing.  There are no florals, no fruits.  It does remind me of air when trying to describe it.
  • Dry:   It’s clean like Ivory soap and airy but with the same tones of musk as when it was wet.  How intriguing.
Other Impressions: “It smells like violet candy and bad rose perfume.” -Tony
