“Heroes,” Prince Lír replied sadly. “Heroes know about order, about happy endings – heroes know that some things are better than others. Carpenters know grains and shingles, and straight lines.” He put his hands out to the Lady Amalthea, and took one step toward her. She did not draw back from him, nor turn her face; indeed, she lifted her head higher, and it was the prince who looked away.

“You were the one who taught me,” he said. “I never looked at you without seeing the sweetness of the way the world goes together, or without sorrow for its spoiling. I became a hero to serve you, and all that is like you. Also to find some way of starting a conversation.”

Chivalry, love, and sacrifice. A noble cologne touched by a sweet sadness: vanilla fougere, bright citrus, juniper berry, ambergris accord, and basil.

THE LAST UNICORN

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Black Phoenix Trading Post, in association with Conlan Press, are thrilled to present the first in a series of scents based on Peter S. Beagle’s classic fantasy novel, “The Last Unicorn.”

The Last UnicornPeter S. Beagle is an American fantasist and author of novels, nonfiction, and screenplays. Beagle is best known as the author of The Last Unicorn, A Fine and Private Place and I See By My Outfit.

The Last Unicorn was published in 1968. It has sold more than five million copies worldwide since its original publication, and has been translated into at least twenty languages.

In 2005 Beagle published a coda to The Last Unicorn, a novelette entitled “Two Hearts,“ and began work on a full-novel sequel. In 2006, “Two Hearts” won the prestigious Hugo Award for Best Novelette and in 2007 it won the Nebula Award in the same category. The story was also nominated as a short fiction finalist for the World Fantasy Award. In 2006, Beagle won the Inkpot Award for Outstanding Achievement in Science Fiction and Fantasy.

Label art was created for us by Renae De Liz, the artist on IDW Publishing’s six-issue comic miniseries of The Last Unicorn. Renae worked on The Last Unicorn comic with her husband, colorist Ray Dillon.

    For the Prince: It’s similar to Paladin in it clean and crispness, but add on a that touch of juniper berry and vanilla musk. It adds a powdery, woodsy, vanilla element to it. With that vanilla note, I think of the Hellboy’s Liz blend, but light. It’s not a gourmand Nilla wafer with sugar, but more of a raw vanilla extract. It must vary for body chemistries, but it lasts an average length for me (3-4 hours a wand swipe). It’s a nice, not in-your-face medium scent, so it should be good for most daily scent people who want something bordering on clean, yet woodsy.

    I love masculine scents, vanilla, and ambergris, so I had high hopes for this. But it doesn’t live up to those hopes. Prince Lir is a pale, perfumey sort of scent on me. I can’t smell much of anything in the bottle, and it’s incredibly light on my skin as well. It’s like a hint of perfumey, sharp musk and sour, green pine & sour citrus that’s left over from a perfume applied several hours ago. Not much throw at all, and only lasts about an hour on my skin. I don’t smell any vanilla or sweetness. 🙁
