The Smell of Good and Evil

“In most pen and paper fantasy RPGs, three of the primary attributes that you must choose for your character are race, class, and alignment. Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab’s RPG scent series was designed to emulate the character creation process, and are meant to be layered in order to create a character concept. In short: you layer your class, race, and the two fragrances that compose your alignment to construct your character scent”.

That’s a quote from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab about their RPG inspired perfumes.
You can find everything about it here:

or for the perfume page:

The RPG Series

A small selection of the ones I liked:


ELF: Pale golden musk, honeycomb, amber, parma violet, hawthorne bark, aspen leaf, forest lily, life everlasting, white moss, and a hint of wild berry.
HALFLING: Porridge, kukui nuts, and pastry crumbs.
ORC: Field grey courgette musk, roughly cured leather, and vetiver.


MAGE: All mystique and thrumming power: gurjum balsam, Sumatran dragon's blood resin, olibanum, galangal, oleo gum resin, and frankincense.
RANGER: Untamed wilderness: buckskin accord with Terebinth pine, Russian birch, black ironwood, elder bark, hay, armoise, juniper, patchouli, galangal root, Spanish moss, and cabreuva.
ROGUE: Soft, well-worn black leather, hemp, and rosin.


NEUTRAL: A flawless skin musk.
GOOD: Shimmering celestial musk with vanilla, white honey, acacia, and sugar cane.
EVIL: Smouldering opium tar, tobacco absolute, green tea, black plum, kush, ambergris accord, ambrette seed, and costus root.

Je m’excuse auprès des lecteurs Français mais ce post est trop galère à traduire. Il s’agit d’une compagnie Américaine qui vient de créer une gamme de parfum inspirée des Jeux de Rôle. Comme dans ces jeux la, il ya 3 attributs principaux quand on crée un personnage : race, classe et alignement. Il en va donc de même pour les parfums. Sur leur site chaque partie est longuement expliquée et chaque fragrance décrites en détail tels :

Hobbit : avoine, noix de Kukui (plante Hawaïenne) et pate brisée.


  1. That's really good and quite interesting, good smells of vanilla.

  2. Good should really smell of a 15yr old single malt wiskey or a large wadge of 1000 euro notes ;-D
