Scent Name: Village Legend Lives Long

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –   Miskatonic Valley Yuletide: The Festival 2013

Scent Description and Notes: “Village Legend Lives Long

I had seen maps of the town, and knew where to find the home of my people. It was told that I should be known and welcomed, for village legend lives long; so I hastened through Back Street to Circle Court, and across the fresh snow on the one full flagstone pavement in the town, to where Green Lane leads off behind the Market house. The old maps still held good, and I had no trouble; though at Arkham they must have lied when they said the trolleys ran to this place, since I saw not a wire overhead. Snow would have hid the rails in any case. I was glad I had chosen to walk, for the white village had seemed very beautiful from the hill; and now I was eager to knock at the door of my people, the seventh house on the left in Green Lane, with an ancient peaked roof and jutting second story, all built before 1650.

The scent of ancient families harboring ancient secrets: thin dribbles of frankincense, bitter cistus, hollow myrrh, pale chamomile, and dark, furtive opoponax.


Oil Color: – A rich, resinous ruddied brown, like crushed fig and cranberry.

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 in green. The front is an image of a green Cthulhu, which is the decanter’s choice in artwork.


  • ITB:  Gah, this is amazing!  It’s richly resinous but also musky in the best way from the cistus and myrrh combination.
  • Wet:  Rich, thick myrrh and frankincense with tines of opoponax and cistus form something that is so resinous that it is decadent.  The chamomile is present, but it’s just an impression underneath the gorgeous top notes.
  • Dry:  It dissipates quickly, but it still stays very true to it’s wet form of rich, decadent resins.  I’ve in love!
Other Impressions:  None.
