Cthulhu Perfume Oil $4.60$19.75

Cthulhu Perfume Oil


If I say that my somewhat extravagant imagination yielded simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature, I shall not be unfaithful to the spirit of the thing. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings… It represented a monster of vaguely anthropoid outline, but with an octopus-like head whose face was a mass of feelers, a scaly, rubbery-looking body, prodigious claws on hind and fore feet, and long, narrow wings behind. This thing, which seemed instinct with a fearsome and unnatural malignancy, was of a somewhat bloated corpulence…

A creeping, wet, slithering scent, dripping with seaweed, oceanic plants and dark, unfathomable waters.

    I’ll echo what others have said, this isn’t what I expected from “Cthulhu” but I do enjoy it! I got the imp size of this to try and it truly is a fresh and aquatic scent. At first it was a little too soapy smelling for my taste but within about 15-30 minutes of wear it mellowed to a soft watery tone where I can definitely get the greener notes of the seaweed. I imagine this would be a “slumbering cthulhu” scent more than an awakened eldritch terror.

    This is the only imp I’ve received (so far) that I just didn’t care for. I strained to detect anything other than soap and leather-scented air freshener. But it is certainly distinct, if nothing else.

    Straight out of the imp, a little detergent-y. After a while on the skin, the detergent changed to a pleasant men’s deodorant smell, and I also got sandalwood and cannabis flower. Clean and masculine.

    I love this scent so much. It’s very Aquatic and also reminds me a lot of Irish Spring soap. Just a great fresh, clean scent.

    I’m not sure this scent entirely encapsulates the dread Elder God Cthulhu, but it is a very pleasant perfume. I loved how long it lasted on my skin without the intensity of the scent fading at all. The overwhelming descriptor for Cthulhu is “clean” and I felt very light and fresh wearing it. It definitely contained an oceanic quality, but I pictured more of fresh linens drying on a line at the seashore than a tentacled horror rising from the deep. However, if you enjoy smelling like nice, clean laundry and a little bit of the ocean all day long, this is a great scent.

    I tried this scent as an imp rather than the full sized bottle. This scent was glorious! It was soft and delicate enough for me (I’m a 36 year old woman) and it’s become a new favorite. It is not extremely overwhelming nor is it too girlie. It has quite the lingering effect of the elder god and I will be buying the full sized bottle as well.

    I also bought two of the same imps by accident and shared it with a younger co-worker and she also enjoyed the scent. Great job!

    I really wanted to love this scent as much as I love the Cthulhu Mythos. To a degree, I do. I’m not sure if it’s an accurate representation of Cthulhu himself, because it’s not a very powerful scent nor is it what I define as dark and chaotic.

    In the imp and wet, I get nothing but soapy Irish Spring. Which is okay if this were Irish Spring shower gel. But this is Cthulhu!

    Dry- it becomes subtle and sweeter. I imagine this is what deep, still pools of black water smells like if I could breathe underwater. There isn’t much throw, but the scent becomes intriguing. Somewhere between a wet, mossy romance and desolation.

    I really wish the dry smell had a stronger throw. I could give it 5 stars at that point.

    Very fresh scent. I was going through my imps to see what new fragrance I wanted to try as all these scents end up smelling so different as they dry down. Upon initial opening and putting on my skin, it reminded me of Irish Spring soap, but more complex. VERY fresh and bright. But on me, the scent seems to stay smelling like Irish Spring and I like it. As it dried down it did have a very intriguing fragrance to it. I’m really liking this one!!

    On first impression, this scent reminded me of how ocean-themed scented candles smell. As I mull it over further, it makes me think a little more of a pond rather than the sea. It’s a very soft scent, mildly sweet (in a cantaloupe-ish way) and slightly less “clean” to me than the other aquatic scent I tried (lightening). There is an undertone of vegetation, which must be the seaweed, and I quite like it.

    It makes me wish I lived somewhere a little more humid, as I like to pair perfume to my environment. I think this would be lovely to wear east of the Mississippi, especially in the South.

    This came to me as a frimp and to be honest, it’s my favorite over the scents I’ve actually bought (Alice and Has No Hanna)! Cthulhu is the most surprising scent to me, it has a clean and sweet scent; it’s wet, cold, and slimy; a perfect representation of Cthulhu. I’ll wear this over the summer.

  11. Gloame

    It’s funny to think of something called Cthulhu as “darling” but this scent really is. It came as a frimp in my Lupercalia order and I was delighted since it had been on my wishlist.

    If you like aquatics, this one is top notch. It has a quirky clean scent, but it’s not soapy to me. It actually smells slithery! I love it. It’s going to the BF because he loves water scents and he’s quirky, too. Can’t wait to smell it on him.

  12. trilobite

    I’m not all that experienced with perfume oils (more used to things like candles and incense) so maybe someone with a more refined palette would think differently, but I am absolutely in love with this scent. It’s sort of a sweet seawater musk and im very enamored.
    In the bottle it’s sharp salty and really hits you, but once you get it on your skin and it starts drying it begins to settle down into something more subtle and ominous. The way it’s described on the page seems pretty accurate to me. It makes me think of the ocean abyss… I picture a grinning deep sea dragonfish with its glowing lure. Very cool. It doesn’t have much of a throw by the end of the day but I can still smell it on my wrists for a long time afterwards and it feels like a big tentacled hug. This would be a great choice for someone who wants something unusual and aquatic.

    This is a really fun thematic perfume, though not something I think I will wear much. On me, this is a very green and sharp scent. Very vegetative and somewhat sour. Under that is an ocean wave. This scent is exactly as advertised, but Cthulhu is not a nice beast. It conjures for me feelings of angst, darkness, and severity.

  14. woodenmango

    I’ve been wanting try thiis for ages! Out of the vial, sharp and salty! So strange. I think it is citrusy aswell but I am not sure. It’s definitely a very clean smell and really hard to describe aside from the saltiness. On me it’s still the same and just very..”clean”. Not exactly what I was thinking for chthulu(I thought something more musky). Not bad but not my usual thing. (very sweet or musky/spicey/woody)
