Scent Name: Mi-Go Brain Canister
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Limited Edition
Scent Description and Notes: “They were pinkish things about five feet long; with crustaceous bodies bearing vast pairs of dorsal fins or membraneous wings and several sets of articulated limbs, and with a sort of convoluted ellipsoid, covered with multitudes of very short antennae, where a head would ordinarily be…. As it was, nearly all the rumours had several points in common; averring that the creatures were a sort of huge, light-red crab with many pairs of legs and with two great bat-like wings in the middle of their back. They sometimes walked on all their legs, and sometimes on the hindmost pair only, using the others to convey large objects of indeterminate nature. On one occasion they were spied in considerable numbers, a detachment of them wading along a shallow woodland watercourse three abreast in evidently disciplined formation. Once a specimen was seen flying””launching itself from the top of a bald, lonely hill at night and vanishing in the sky after its great flapping wings had been silhouetted an instant against the full moon.
The Mi-Go are the Fungi from Yuggoth [the planet we naïvely dubbed Pluto], a crustacean-like, winged humanoid race that travel to the highest mountain peaks on Earth to mine for minerals. They do pick up the occasional human brain during their trips to Earth, which they transport back to Yuggoth in a canister. While in this brain jar, the transported brain is fully-conscious, and, thanks to the miracles of modern Mi-Go technology, is possessed of all its faculties and the power of speech.
In an effort to create a pleasing environment during a surprise trip to Yuggoth, we have created a soothing yet stimulating blend of pink pepper, peony, jasmine, mango, kiwi, pomegranate, pineapple, white ginger, serene white tea and light musks. Bon voyage!“ -BPAL
Oil Color: I cannot tell from the dark blue apothecary bottle.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a 5ml older blue apothecary bottle. The label extends just under halfway around the bottom. The name of the scent is a blocky black block font aligned to the left of the image while the name of the company is in smaller black font (less blocky) along the bottom of the image. The collection name is located in the same font at the top. The image is of a brain.

- ITB: It certainly is tropical. There is an overarching ester tone to the scent which masks many of the individual notes save for the peony.
- Wet: I get peony, jasmine, pineapple (although artificial), pepper, and a touch of ginger. It’s still overtly ester-y, which I don’t really enjoy.
- Dry: After an hour, it’s a combination of jasmine, peony, mango, white tea, and a subtle hint of ginger. It’s much nicer once dried.
Other Impressions: None.
