Monsters in Love, a Perfume Collection

Three new scents can be found in my Etsy shop as a part of a limited edition Halloween collection called Monsters in Love. This special collection was inspired by a funny vision I had of a zombie donning a dirty pale blue sport coat with a smashed carnation on his lapel and carrying an old broken box of candies. It made me wonder what kind of love lives monsters have.
These are limited edition perfumes and can only be found in my Etsy shop! These monsters go back into hiding on November 1st.
The Scents:
Lovesick & Undead
Vampires are old things. They've walked the earth for centuries but in trade, lost everyone they've ever loved. They tend to build up walls, and no one can really blame them. Their greatest gift of immortality can also be their greatest pain. It happens however, at least once, to even the hardest of vampires...they slip, they fall in love. It may be the sun flecked highlights glistening in her hair, or her summer sky blue eyes. She reminds him of his lost life, his lost humanity, his lost sun. Once it happens, he falls in love fast and hard. He loves her warmth, her delicate body, the passion and fear of life that all mortals possess. He loves her mortality too much to turn her and as happens with all fragile humans the light of her life vanishes one day. So he sits, locked away in the damp and dark pining for his lost love. He obsesses over her memory, etching the details deep into his mind. The days roll into years, years to centuries, and he walks on, alone and grieving for his lost love and lost sun.
The scent of long lost love and mortality. Notes of earth, decaying wood, and leather with just a hint of orange blossoms and wildflower honey.
Eye of the Wolf
Werewolves are quite creatures in their human form, for they have many secrets to keep. They are forever hunted, forever on the run. Though they have immeasurable strength, there is a tender loyalty about them that makes them gentle when they are truly happy. If you catch a werewolf’s eye, you just may find yourself whisked away, deep into the forest. This is where he feels the safest. Here you will be kept, where he hopes one day you will see what lies behind his wolf eyes.
The scent of brooding strength. Notes of cedar wood, vanilla, warm musk, and small woodland flowers.
Zombie went a Courtin'
Ah, the zombie. They are neither witty nor smart, and about as charming as a cinderblock. However, what the zombie lacks in charisma, he makes up for in devotion. When a zombie falls in love, there quite literally is nothing in the world that will keep him away from her. Slow and steady, he will make his way over walls, around burning cars, through muddy trenches until he is finally at his love’s side. Sure, he may loose an arm or the flesh from his torso, but what is that really in the grand scheme of things?
The scent of undying devotion. Notes of earth, heavy frankincense, black pepper, and crushed chocolates (that he so thoughtfully brought with him).

These scents are also available in a trio of perfume oils that are packaged in special bottles. The scents are limited edition, and so is the packaging! Clear glass bottles with a black lid that features a glass application wand. I only have a limited number of these sets available.
