Crimson Peak Perfume Main ImageGhosts are real, that much I know.
I’ve seen them all my life…

In a groundbreaking departure from past film tributes, Black Phoenix Alchemy presents a series of scents, jewelry, and more inspired by Guillermo Del Toro’s sumptuous gothic romance CRIMSON PEAK.

As audiences are already discovering, CRIMSON PEAK is more than mere ghost story or cinematic spectacle: it is a director’s love letter to the dark tales which formed his childhood sense of wonder, nudging him toward becoming the visionary artist he is today. For contemporary viewers this serves as a gateway to an entire form of storytelling — one which may seem as outdated as whalebone or laudanum, but retains its power to shock, arouse, and illuminate.

Perhaps it’s fitting that in the 21st century, the gothic romance genre has itself become a wandering ghost — one which, not unlike the film’s heroine Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska), certain among us can still hear, see, and even smell. What is it so desperately trying to tell us?

Crimson Peak Crest

Set in the late Victorian era, Del Toro’s film explores the terrible power of doomed relationships, of love struggling to bloom in a world fraught with death and suffering. Stalked since childhood by the specter of her mother, Edith stubbornly chases the dream of becoming an author, fantasizing about becoming the next Mary Shelley and delicately resisting the advances of her childhood love, Dr. Alan McMichael (Charlie Hunnam).

Edith inadvertently steps into the pages of her own haunted love story when she finds herself being wooed by the dashing Sir Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston), a baronet seeking investors to help salvage what’s left of his crumbling birthright. A series of tragedies put Edith front and center in the lives of Sir Thomas and his brooding sister, the Lady Lucille Sharpe (Jessica Chastain), and confine her to Allerdale Hall — a decaying British manor that veritably breathes, bleeds, and screams under the strain of the elements, not to mention the spirits of those who’ve perished within. 

1 (2)Unraveling the mystery of these strange events, Edith is forced to confront her fears of communing with the dead, gradually coming to appreciate her dead mother’s warning — Beware of Crimson Peak — as the line between life and death grows ever fainter in the snowfall in and around Allerdale Hall.

While the ghosts of CRIMSON PEAK are far more than “just a metaphor,” Del Toro’s film is unabashed in its emphasis on the uniquely human experiences of loss, grief, and remembrance, painting the supernatural as a realm where pain (as well as love) can linger long after death.

Thanks to the director’s artistic vision and penchant for practical effects, the world of these characters (living and otherwise) is astonishingly tangible — an orgy of bold colors and rich fabrics, of flesh both livid and sanguine. Those who feel at home in such a lavish world may consider it an invitation from Del Toro himself: return to Allerdale Hall as often as you dare, and feel welcome to stay a long, long time.

    :

    Lady Lucille Sharpe and Black Moths are my favorites of the Crimson Peak line. This is a dark, rich, elegant scent, full of plum musk and sensual florals, and somehow has a heavy, vanilla-ish sweetness on my skin. A real femme fatale’s perfume.

    Obsessed. Such a rich & beautiful aroma. I love the way the fragrance transforms as it is worn. I will be devastated the day it runs out, fortunately a drop is all you need so it should last for a while.

    Absolutely beautiful. Dark and sweet, but not too sweet. The amber is the most prominent to me and is my go to scent.

    This, along with Between Your Heart & Mine were my first ever purchases from BPAL and I was awestruck. Upon opening the bottle of Lucille I was enveloped in a heady mix of roses and dark plum as it dries down the black amber and lily made themselves known and it creates a deadly intoxicating mix that I found myself falling for. I feel that if we were permitted into Ms. Sharpe’s personal rooms/ attic workspace at Allerdale Hall this is what we would be greeted with. Something so dark and hauntingly beautiful that you can’t help but be drawn to it.

    This is an enveloping fragrance. Like a deep purple rose that might close her petals around you and keep you forever. Very strong throw and a little goes a long way.

    My first purchase from BPAL, I bought it to pair with Sir Thomas Sharpe. Very VERY floral. I was hoping the rose wouldn’t be overpowering (as rose is not a favorite scent of mine), but it’s quite strong. However, it does mellow out quite quickly, and is replaced by a powder finish and the other florals in the scent. This one does not have the staying power of Thomas (perhaps due to it’s floral scent), but when paired with Thomas, creates an amazing ying/yang combination of masculine and feminine scents (not unisex, definitely a combo) that is a floral, masculine amber musk that has an AMAZING staying power.
