“You all meet at an inn…

Pen and paper role-playing games have been a tremendous influence in my life since my formative years. My parents bought me the magenta D&D boxed set back in 1982, along with the Player’s Handbook, Dungeon Master’s Guide, and Monster Manual. My lifelong passion for fantasy, science fiction, war games, and mythology was well-channeled through RPGs, and I credit playing D&D with helping me sustain my imagination and sense of wonder through adulthood.

I played with one particular group through the bulk of my late teens and early 20s, and this series was inspired, specifically, by the time that we spent campaigning together. Our group was somewhat prop-driven in our gaming: we felt that setting a mood was conducive to our style of gameplay. Little things like changes in lighting, minor sound effects, and music made a world of difference, and we found that utilizing miniatures, model railroad scenery, and other tools in order to physically illustrate strategies and provide visual cues was tremendously useful. How much more immersive would it have been if we’d been able to smell the crypt we were crawling through? Or the stench of steel and blood that permeates a warrior’s cloak? What do the wizard’s spell components smell like? What does winter in the desert smell like? Or spring in a druid’s sanctuary?

Pen and paper role playing games are, to me, dynamic stories that are propelled by the active participation of many individuals. You can’t have a strong storyline without creating characters of some depth. When you create a character, you generally have their personalities, priorities, and history in mind, along with a clear vision of what your character looks and sounds like. But how does she smell? What does the world around her smell like?

In most pen and paper fantasy RPGs, three of the primary attributes that you must choose for your character are race, class, and alignment. Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab’s RPG scent series was designed to emulate the character creation process, and are meant to be layered in order to create a character concept. In short: you layer your class, race, and the two fragrances that compose your alignment to construct your character scent. RPGs in all their myriad forms – CRPGs, MMOs, and old school pen and paper – have brought me immeasurable joy. This is my homage. This series is dedicated to my first DMs – my parents – for laughing off the nutter-perpetuated AD&D Satan Scare of the 80’s. Thanks for taking the time to play with your little girl. I miss you, and I love you.

Updated Autumn 2019! –
Customize your perfect character scent! Our RPG collection has now expanded to include six more character classes – each available in three different labels, featuring different gender options in the artwork. Just select whichever you want from the product’s drop-down menu: F, M, or NB. The scents available with the new label options: Artificer, Assassin, Berzerker, Monk, Psionicist, and Sorcerer.

The scent isn’t affected; the only difference is the label art.

This feature will be coming soon to all the rest of the previous blends! Many thanks to Julie Dillon for the illustrations!

    The blue-white musk is the most readily recognizable part of the scent for me, both on my skin and in the bottle. It’s a soft, almost-but-not-quite powdery smell. It’s overall very cool (the mint and eucalyptus at play) and quite refreshing. I can just make out a touch of frankincense as it dries down.

    I really like this one. It’s soothing, but also makes you feel a little more alert. Great for studying or anything of that nature. Will definitely be revisiting!

    On me, the mint really takes hold for that cooling factor, but is calmed down by the others. It’s like it wakes you up, but calms you down, bringing energy and focus to you. It’s like when winter is ending and it’s a nice day, so you open your windows. That crisp coolness, but the lovely freshness it brings in.

    I received this as a free sample and I’m extremely happy with it! Somehow the frimps always end up being my favorite in my orders 🙂 If you’re unsure about getting this, I definitely recommend it! I can’t see how anyone could dislike this. It reminds me slightly of Listerine, it’s such a fresh, clean, and uplifting smell. Totally lives up to the “electric blue-white” description. I love wearing it when studying especially or when I want to feel refreshed. It does need to be reapplied and the throw fades after the first couple hours, but it still clings to the skin.
