Gris GrimlyThe Gris Grimly Poe Collection.
This series is based on the Gris Grimly’s illustrations for Poe’s short stories as featured in Gris’ new book, Tales of Death and Dementia!

To Commemorate the 200th anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe, Gris Grimly fully illustrated four of Poe’s short stories, the Tell-Tale Heart, the System of Dr Tarr and Professor Fether, the Oblong Box, and the Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar. We are thrilled beyond belief to have the opportunity to translate a few of Gris’ illustrations into merrily macabre complimentary scents!

The scents will also be available on the Mad Creator web site soon!

    I am glad I got this, since it is such high quality, complex, and unusual, but it did not give me the nose-gasm I get from other BPAL scents. This fades quickly on me, which could be my dry climate, and it reminds me too much of Halloween trick or treat dregs. I keep thinking of the Good and Plenties that seem to be the very last treats leftover. But I will enjoy it while I have it.

    Absolutely amazing. This scent really is the best of its descriptive tags; for me, it was the perfect balance of spicy cinnamon, cherries, and licorice. I was devastated when the first time I used it, I knocked the bottle over and spilled most of it! 🙁 🙁 🙁 On the bright side, it made my room smell wonderful for a couple of days 😉 but seriously this is a divine scent if you love cinnamon. It’s definitely one I will buy regularly so that I can wear it constantly, it’s right up there with Snake Oil for me.

    I love this scent, and I’m very happy with its versatility! I wore it for Halloween because it smells like brite, shiny cherry hard candies and red & black licorice, and I’m also going to wear it for the Thanksgiving/Christmas season because of the whiffs of cozy cinnamon you get when you first put it on. I hope I can make it last until summer because it will make a delicious summer scent: juicy cherry Popsicle! If it runs out before then, I’ll definitely have to get another bottle. Absolutely delicious and evocative.

    “Hideous Heart” smells like tasty “Hot Tomales” candy! So sweet and spicy! Lots of cinnamon and cherry at first, but mellows to a softly sweet, slightly licorice scent. This doesn’t come off as a typical Autumn scent, even though it is very cinnamon-y. And it’s not a thick, cloying type of gourmand, either. Very crisp, I would say. Love it!

    One of my favorites. It smells like marrichino cherries and Red Hots had a baby. I can’t stop smelling myself, resisting the urge to taste it. I’ve had it occasionally turn to a light bubblegum in the end note. However, it smells so good I don’t mind.
