Sometimes just loving something isn’t enough: heck, this is why fandom exists in the first place. Because sometimes we all need our obsessive love to be a multi-sensory experience. You wouldn’t think there’d be a way to involve every sense—particularly one’s sense of smell, but that’s where you’re wrong. Enter: Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs’ Crimson Peak collection of perfume oils. As Victorian a concept as the film itself, the oils were crafted with the olfactory element in mind—and they definitely feel right at home at a house as creepy as Crimson Peak.
But how, Dear Nerdist, would we know if these are worth our time? Well that’s where this review comes in, folks. Because BPAL was kind enough to send us a few to sample and smell—and we’re here to tell you exactly how and when to wear them.
Each bottle will run you $30.00 per 5ml, but for any Sharpe-nosed ladies (or gents!) out there, it’s a small price to play to fully immerse yourself in a more experiential love of Guillermo del Toro’s gothic romance. Plus, oils generally last longer than perfume (especially scent-wise), so it’s basically the price of a perfume rollerball pen!
