A notorious voodoo priest, who eventually rose to become one of the funereal Guédés, alongside Baron Cimitère and Baron La Croix. He is a Guardian of the Crossroads: the pathways between our world and the realm of the spirits. As a Master of the Graveyard, he ensures that burial rites are performed with skill, and he helps ferry souls to the dark realm.

In his honor, we have created this scent: our spin on traditional Bay Rum.

    This scent has a pleasantly warm and spicy, yet almost clean and soapy scent on my skin. It doesn’t smell waxy or plastic-y like many perfume oils tend to smell on my skin. It reminds me of a very classy men’s cologne

    I get leather, tobacco, and a boozy sweetness. Not for me, but I bet I know a dude or two who would like it!

    I have quite a different review than others listed. I don’t get the cherry or the cigarette smell at all. It’s spicy rum in the beginning and beautifully aged rum in a dusty bottle after dry down. It honestly reminds me of the beach in St. Augustine, Florida and there is a lot of spookiness here. Could just as easily be named Castillo de San Marcos – the haunted fort that sits on the beach.

    A delightfully bold scent with a masculine edge. Upon application, the intense notes of leather and tobacco took center stage. After about 30 minutes on the dry down, the forward leather and tobacco notes mellowed down into a deep vanilla with a hint of smoky bourbon. I did not detect anything remotely rum or spice based about this perfume as per the description. After a few hours, the leather and tobacco merge with the slight smoke and vanilla bourbon leaving a rather warm yet dominate dark vanilla smoke after glow. The perfect scent for those days when you need that extra edge of assertiveness and action-oriented confidence. Definitely a late autumn and winter scent.

    Cherry coke and cigarettes is exactly it! It’s warm and slightly sweet smelling, but by no means foodie. The tobacco is ages, like a man who’s been smoking his whole life and never really washes the scent all out. I like it!

    Unisex, warm, woody, slightly oriental.

    Cherry coke and sexytime and cloves cigarettes. This smells like a party. A sexy party. Did I mention how sexy this scent is?

    So, more practically: opens with a blast of smoke and cherry coke or cherry booze–whichever you prefer. The smoke (veviter, presumably) burns off fast, so don’t worry about it too much if you’re not a fan. The scent melds into a sweet something clove, with the cherry becoming less distinct. It dries to a somehow very masculine clean scent–masculine, but not at all musky. Clean clean clean, but not boring squeaky clean, and not soap either. Dapper, but not dandy.

    It’s masculine–but not too masculine. Sweet, but not too sweet–never cloying, always with a surprising depth and promise of kick. I don’t get any old spice at all on my skin. For context, I’m a chick and this is my everyday wear. My dude LOVES it, too–on me, I mean.

    It’s a PERFECT scent for Baron Samedi. I’m totally convinced.

    May it be part of the CG forever and always, aaamen.

    The primary topnote is sweet cherry, but that fades quickly into a spicy cinnamon and clove cologne – warm, rich, and dark. Anyone who likes spicy scents will love this. I highly recommend this for any man who wears Old Spice and wants to upgrade a superior cologne.

    I bought a bottle this weekend at Dragon*Con after quickly running out of an imp – absolutely magnificent! Special thanks to Beth, Tom, and everyone at the BPAL booth for an awesome weekend! Looking forward to seeing you next year!
