Books and scents

I read an entry over on Calliope Books regarding the fact that Neil Gaiman's story Snow, Glass Apples, have been made into a soap and I was just about to comment on that to say that Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab have a whole range of perfume oils inspired by Gaiman's words. Then I remembered I have a book blog now and that it would be better to write an entry of my own about it.

I am quite the fan of BPAL and several of my favorite scents come from the Gaiman-line. If I'm not completely mistaken the first of his's works to be scented was Good Omens, the apocalyptic story of the anti-christ, and let me tell you it is rather fantastic. One of my absolute favorites is Pepper which is a flowery perfume for people who doesn't really like flowery scents.
Wild English roses, French gardenia, vanilla, honey, golden ginger, blood orange, pine resin, pink pepper, crushed berries, tuberose, bergamot, and geranium.
Seriously, doesn't it sound delicious? Since that first range of scents it's been extended to include everything from short stories to American Gods. Sadly I haven't had the means to try them all but damn do I want to.

And the geeky scents doesn't stop with Gaiman, no, just recently they came out with a range based on classic RPG. The scents are supposed to be layered so you can smell like an Evil Hafling Mage or a Neutral Elf Paladin which ever strikes your fancy. In fact, I have testers of just Evil,Neutral, Halfling and Mage on the way right now and you can be sure I will tell you what I think about them when they arrive.

Small note. I am in no way sponsored by bpal, I just happen to love their perfumes.
