Scents inspired by HP Lovecraft, Jim Henson and more

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab is an online-only perfume purveyor that makes potions, tinctures, elixirs, and specialty oil blends that defy the commercial fragrance industry. Beloved childhood characters come to life with lines inspired by the likes of Fraggle RockHellboy, and Labyrinth. While Peter S. Beagle’s The Last Unicorn smells like frosty lilac petals, white chocolate, wild lettuce, and oakmoss, the combination of elements in the Lab’s role-playing game series is practically endless. 

A Picnic in Arham features HP Lovecraft’s antihero Cthulhu as “a creeping, wet, slithering scent, dripping with seaweed, oceanic plants and dark, unfathomable waters,” whereas Miskatonic University reminds us of “the scent of Irish coffee, dusty tomes and polished oakwood halls.” There’s also the Mad Tea Party, along with a series benefitting Habitat for Humanity — and even a few scents based on comic books, too. While Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab may not have a brick-and-mortar store, just reading the descriptions is enough to take us to another place and time altogether.
