WHAT IT IS
A collaborative group project involving the epic talents of eight US indie perfumers, ten perfume bloggers and nineteen groundbreaking, rule-defying bespoke perfumes, both all-natural and mixed-media, in three different fragrant media, including a bespoke incense and a devilishly delicious massage bar, all created to highlight the perfumers’ work and inspired by Quantum Demonology. Each of the perfumers – as well as the bloggers – were given free rein to interpret the distinctive scents of both or either the Devil – called Dev in the novel – and his much malcontented wife Lilith, Queen of the Succubi.
It originated with the author and indie perfumer Ellen Covey of Olympic Orchids Perfumes. In January 2012, it grew to include nine other bloggers and seven more indie perfumers. The perfumes’ names below link to the individual reviews of the perfumes on The Alembicated Genie.
