Shoggoth Perfume Oil


It was a terrible, indescribable thing vaster than any subway train – a shapeless congerie of protoplasmic bubbles, faintly self-luminous, and with myriads of temporary eyes forming and un-forming as pustules of greenish light all over the tunnel-filling front that bore down upon us, crushing the frantic penguins and slithering over the glistening floor that it and its kind had swept so evilly free of all litter.

An amorphous, radiant, incandescent scent. Ever changing, protoplasmic and primordial: white amber, green coconut meat, iris, palmarosa, Chinese peony, lime, water lily, snowdrop, muguet, lemongrass, osmanthus, wisteria, glassy musk, and hinoki.

The Lovecraft Collection.
Scents inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos.
Iä! Iä!

Presented in an amber apothecary vial.

    ZING! In the bottle this scent is like sniffing lemon lime soda. I absolutely love it and it changes over time on the skin, but it’s rather inexplicable, which is another thing I love about it.

    Beautifully complex & well chosen blend of ingredients that all work together to form quite a thrilling experience! Upon first whiff it has a sharp high note of Lemongrass with a slight floral to bring it back down. As the scent dries out on the skin the floral notes come out more, leaving the Lemongrass as a nice fleeting hint. Interestingly bright, & shimmery smell.

    Most certainly complex. I smell different elements every time I open the bottle, making it a bit of a wildcard. I’m far more into sweet or vanilla scents on myself compared to the floral-laced, citrus punch that this is; that being said, it would smell gorgeous on somebody else. On me, the dominant notes are the lime and lemongrass with a mixture of sweet florals lingering underneath. Not my style and yet I can’t stop smelling it, it’s so pretty. The florals become more apparent the longer it’s on, but it never loses the tangy citrus to balance it out.

    I bought an imp of this because I was intrigued with the components and the reviews and was not disappointed. It truly does morph throughout the day, which I loved because I got so many of the different scents at different times. Wet, it had a vaguely Margarita scent which would have been the coconut and lime, but as it dried it faded to a strong hint of lemongrass and toward the end of the day the florals came out and I wound up with a soft, watery wisteria. It was a pleasure to wear and has definitely become one of my favorites.

    This might be my new favorite perfume. It balances the myriad scents without ever becoming muddy, and it really does change constantly. On my skin, every one of the scents is incredible. It’s like an experience. The throw isn’t particularly intense, which suits me well. It also does not give me a headache.

    This was my very first BPAL fragrance, and I adore it.

    With so many components listed, you expect a complex fragrance, and that’s what you get. The description of the scent includes the phrase “ever-changing,” which is entirely accurate. In the bottle, it throws a different note at you every time but remains bright, never muddy.

    When I first applied it, I picked up the lime immediately. Less than 10 minutes later, the citrus mellowed out and the light florals came to the front. Here’s that “ever-changing” again: throughout the day, I picked up a different note.

    It is a very subtle fragrance, which I love, though it fades earlier than I wish it did. I may need to pick up an imp to keep at work for reapplication mid-day.
