It's that time again. BOO!!!!

So, although the future of TMTM is in the air, and everything is uncertain, it's still time for the yearly Halloween contest. For those of you that know me, you know Halloween is my Christmas - my most favorite, most important holiday. So we are going to proceed like nothing else is happening, yes?

We're going to do it just like we did last year. For those of you just joining us, here's how it works:

You leave a comment on this post, giving me at least TWO perfumes you would like to see made into reality. They can be horror movies, notorious people, notorious cars (wink), a character from a book or movie, etc. You have to have at least two, but feel free to list as many as you'd like. For example, you say:

"I would really like to see Freddy Kruger, Christine, Dorian Gray, and Elizabeth Bathory."

Upon the deadline, I will write down everyone's name who enters, throw them all in a hat, and pick a winner. That winner will receive a prize from the shop. And the prizes don't suck!!! :-)

There are only a couple rules.

1.) And this is more FYI, really - should your name be the one I choose from the hat, it does not necessarily mean I will choose your suggestion. If Suzie wins the draw, but I like Mary's idea better, I will go with Mary's idea, but Suzie will get the prize. HOWEVER, if I use your idea, you will get a prize, regardless.

2.) Your "notorious people" cannot be serial killers. I myself am not easily offended in the least, but there are a lot of people who are. I would not have an issue doing a Ted Bundy perfume, but there are a lot of people who would have a serious problem with it. It's a fine line, though - last year I did Lizzie Borden AND Jack the Ripper and no one had an issue. Meh. I'd rather just steer clear of at least very RECENT killers.

3.) You can comment as many times as you'd like, but your name will only be entered once.

4.) The deadline is.............................. August 10th.

You ready???? GO!!!!!!!!

The Omen, Jane (the girl who wore the yellow ribbon around her neck), The Monkey's Paw.

Melissa Fox said...

Let's see what we have here...
Anton Lavey, Mary Shelley , Area 51 and Set.

Revery Cloud said...

This is so fun!...
Delirium (Sandman 1990), Nosferatu (Horror 1922), Morella (E.A. Poe 1850), Charlotte (or any such reference to The Yellow Wallpaper 1899 "Such a peculiar odor, too! I have spent hours in trying to analyze it, to find what it smelled like.")

Patrice-The Soap Seduction said...

I love the character Jerry Dandridge from Fright Night (1985). He was sexy, suave, and scary as hell (at least to a 14 year old back then....)

Snarky P said...

Hmmm...

I like Jack Skellington.
It would make quite a nice conversation starter!

Morticia would be divine as well- I think of a dark, alluring and seductive smell.

And of course, seeing as I'm from New England... We always think about The Salem Witches for Halloween! (not exactly "Hocus Pocus" type witches LOL)

Basht said...

Ohh I love this contest! I'd love to have perfume based off of:
Rod Serling, Vincent Price, Yonkers (the first battle of yonkers from World War Z, described by the character Todd Wainio) and Enma Ai (HellGirl)

tandphorton said...

How about Norman Bates the perfect Psycho, Jack from The Shining and Cujo the Saint Bernard (Stephen King). Who doesn't want to smell like a furry, bloody, sweaty dog!!!

Amber Dawn said...

How about some Dean Koontz? Phantoms, Intensity and The Dark Place are some of my favorites!

J.Vandermeer said...

I would like to see Jack Black (Queen Victoria's famed Rat-Catcher), American Psycho, The Mariner's Revenge (a song), and The Wild Hunt (great 2009 thriller).

That would be kind of amazing.

Eric said...

How about OLd Man Smithers from the Scooby Doo movie. He posed as The Luna Ghost.


But really: Horace Pinker (Shocker), Belial Bradley (Basket Case), Pinhead or maybe Cenobite for Men Has a nice ring to it), Damien Thorn is a classic, or characters from the Puppetmaster movies.


Demonic Toys: Baby Oopsy Daisy, Jack Attack, Grizzly Teddy, Mr. Static


Or how about from the groovie goolies: Hagatha, Bella La Ghostly, Boneapart or Batso and Ratso.


I think I should stop there because you don't want to spend all day reading and I have some nachos to make.

Mandy said...

I want to see a perfume that gets the essence of the romance between infamous couples!


1) I would like a perfume that captures the romance between Kurt Cobain & Courtney Love. Something misunderstood, passionate, tragic, doomed.

2) A perfume that captures the insanity, villainy, and infatuation between Batman's The Joker & Harley Quinn.

3) Bonnie and Clyde! The fascination of a life of crime, two people in in love and living in the midst of their youth--them against the world.

Barbara said...

Suspiria, Lady Snowblood (a kickass Japanese movie from the '70s), Anne Rice (based on her novels), John Waters early movies (Pink Flamingos, Female Trouble, etc), M by Fritz Lang, and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.

Amy said...

I'd love to see something to do with my two favorite horror villians: Pennywise the clown from Stephen King's "IT" and Michael Myers from "Halloween". Also, something witchy and fun inspired by Marnie from "Halloweentown" would be really nice, that was always one of my favorite movies growing up and I still love it. Some more suggestions that I thought I'd throw in: Victor Crowley from "Hatchet", the killer from "Midnight Movie", Captain Spaulding from "House of 1,000 Corpses" and Jonah from "Dark Ride". I know they're not everyone's favorite movies, but they sure are some of my favorites and they are highly colorful characters which would inspire some complex perfumes. :)

Laura said...

Chernabog from Fantasia and Sam from the horror movie Trick r Treat. And come to think of it, a Samhain and All Soul's fragrance would be cool. Or go old school with Rosemary's Baby, Something Wicked This Way Comes, Carnival of Souls, Bucket of Blood. Now I will stop.

J.Vandermeer said...

HA! Looking at my comment now, all I can think is: "Why did I say Jack Black? She already sells a perfume called Black Jack. That's silly."

This is why night bakers should not be making daytime comments on blogs.

Mrs.TattooedGeek said...

I love the Anton LaVey idea, as well as Nosferatu, Norman Bates and The Omen. Morticia and the Adams family members are very inspiring too. We just watched Elvira Mistress of Darkness on Netflix. I loved that cheesy movie as a kid. She (Elvira) might be a good idea.

tandphorton said...

Just thought of one more...
Thinking of The Shining again, what about a REDRUM perfume! Those little twins on tricycles always freaked me out!!!

katethecreeper said...

The 1958 Ford Edsel sold poorly and lost millions of dollars for the Ford Motor Co. The name "Edsel" has since become synonymous with failure. A Petrified Mummy hand smelling of juniper berries, salt, white linen, cedar oil, and ancient incense. Mr. Dark from the novel Something Wicked This Way Come. Whats not to love about a soul snatching carnival?

Buccaneers and Ball Gowns said...

Ooh this is fun! If we think of more later can leave more comments? (not for extra entries of course). I would love to see Agatha Christie, Annabel Lee, and I would definitely have to agree with the person who said Mariner's Revenge Song. Really any Decemberists song would be awesome and I would buy it for sure!!!

Buccaneers and Ball Gowns said...

Ps. I think the characters from Buffy The Vampire Slayer (the show) would also make a good set!

The Morbid The Merrier said...

You guys are making my job SO HARD!!!!! Ha ha. I love it that everyone is excited. It warms my little tiny black heart. :-)

The Morbid The Merrier said...

Oh and by the way, I'm SUPER EXCITED about my new Halloween products. Announcement coming soon!!!!

a. l. burke said...

Ahhh! I have been resisting the urge to buy anything from your shop lately so that I can save up for Halloween. <3
Hmmm...As far as horror movies go, I still think Carnival of Souls would be a good perfume. But someone already suggested it this year, so I'm going with Spider Baby.
And, as a fan of creepy folk songs and such, I have to throw out "the hearse song/the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out"...but I just really like worms.

Peg Englishman said...

I'm not the biggest fan of Halloween........gasp! But I do LOVE your scents and your shop:)

I'm thinking more along the lines of subtle haunting......something deeper, like Jane Eyre. And the other would be the classic Bela Lugosi. Subtle, rich, romantic, fantasy.........adventure, dark, time period kind of stuff.

Painted Moonkin said...

I've always loved the original The Haunting-so scary and all done with camera angles and music. The first horror book I read was Needful Things by Stephen King. Notorious Car: James Dean's cursed Porshe 550 Spyder. Fictional/Notorious character, I love me some Hannibal Lecter. And of course, because I am bidden, Cthulhu.

RoboPetra said...

I would give my right arm for anything inspired by Vampire Hunter D!

Let’s see, what else… oh, Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill and the 1963 film The Haunting based on the novel by Shirley Jackson.

Also, how about La Llorona, the mexican legend of the weeping woman, my dad would tell us it all the time. There are many versions of it, some more bloody than others.

And from my mother’s side lets throw in the Kapre, a tree dwelling giant that smokes cigars/pipes! Not very frightening but it does have the scent of tobacco attached to it.

Dana said...

Ok, this might be silly but how about something simple like....

Candied Cobwebs
Hob Goblin
Smoky Cauldron
Monster Mash
Bats and Cats
Haunted Graveyard
Ghosts and Ghouls
Zombie Watch
Bubble Bubble Toil and Trouble
Creepy Crawly
Midnight Fog
Hard Apple Cider
Witches Brew
The Banished Banshee


gosh, the list could go on and on...LOL!

Dana

Christie B. said...

How about something to represent Hannibal Lecter and Clarice Starling,or Evelyn Price from House on Haunted Hill, Leather Face, Jack Torrance from The Shining, Eleanor from The Haunting, last but not least Thirteen Ghosts The First Born Son, The Torso, The Bound Woman, The Withered Lover, The Torn Prince, The Angry Princess, The Pilgrimess, The Great Child & The Dire Mother, The Hammer, The Jackal, The Juggernaut, and The Broken Heart

mysocksarebetterthanyoursocks said...

Scents I'd like to see (and would totally wear)-Baby Jane (Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?), Robert the Doll (creepy haunted doll: http://www.robertthedoll.org/), Mallory Knox (Natural Born Killers), Comte de Saint-Germain (The Immortal Alchemist: http://paranormal.about.com/od/humanenigmas/a/saint-germain.htm), Mrs Carmody (Stephen king's The Mist), and Elmyra (Tiny Toons and Animaniacs).

Krusty said...

I have a thing for retro horror movies, not the kind that scares the living daylights outta you. But rather horror combined with dark humor. Remember the Army of Darkness, or how about the man himself, Beetlejuice in his wacky alternate universe. Beetlejuice,, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!!! In all its weird, stripey goodness. Haha sorry I just can't resist saying it thrice.

Wildflower said...

I would love to see a Jennifer Hill inspired (from I spit on your grave) perfume/oil, an evil dead set (not sure if you have already done that), an Herbert West inspired one(Re-Animator by H.P. Lovecraft)

Peg Englishman said...

Also, I feel like when I receive your samples, it's like my little secret. I keep them in an old velvet lined jewelry box, and it's just for me.

So maybe a perfume oil that was called, "secret" would be cool.

JBear said...

What about a fall-wintery scent inspired by Edward Scissorhands? I would also totally love something based on Ray Bradbury's The Halloween Tree. :)

Peg Englishman said...

Coraline was an awesome movie! If I didn't have a 7 year old daughter, probably wouldn't of seen it.......I loved it. Plus I think the name is kinda cool.
Another cool idea would be to pick unique names and make up descriptions for them, like you do with items like horsemen, etc.

AmbientFeline said...

Hi Lysa,
To honor your recent "adoption" of a new family car, I would love to see a good/evil, naughty/nice, day/night Black Hearse, White Hearse fragrance oil set that can be worn separately or combined.
In keeping with the car theme a Christine fragrance would be awesome, as would a fragrance for the evil car in the 1977 movie The Car, which I first saw while in elementary school and would fantasize about keeping as a pet that would follow me wherever I went like a puppy.
A Nosferatu, or an old school, not sparkly in the sunlight, evil vampire fragrance is much needed in my TMTM perfume collection!

sperrfeuer said...

I'd love to see some H.R. Giger inspired perfumes, especially for "Lilith" or "Baphomet".
They're wonderfully morbid inspirations :D

The Morbid The Merrier said...

I'm so excited!!!! I want Halloween here NOW!!!!!!

Sherrell Green said...

I love Halloween too, infact your Halloween collections is what made me find your shop, and I have so many of your perfumes! I'm so excited for fall/halloween and you're new stuff.

Anyway I really put some thought into this because it's so fun but here are some things i'd like to see...

This might be really long. Im just a huge horror fan, another reason why I am in love with your shop :) <3

Based on movies/tv:

- Classic monsters. Frankenstein, Wolfman, Mummy, Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula, Invisible Man, Creature from the Black Lagoon.

- Re-animator, love the mad scientist element. Also based off Lovecraft. Jeffrey Combs is awesome, and so is the character he plays Herbert West.

- Evil Dead, Army of Darkness anything that has to do with Bruce Campbell and Ash. I think you had a Ash perfume but did Sleepy Hollow instead which was still very brillaint!

- The Toxic Avenger!

- X-files. I've always wondered what Mulder & Scully or the Cigarette Smoking Man.

- Rocky Horror Picture show. I think if you made a series based on these character's it'd be a hit. Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Riff Raff, Magenta, Columbia. You could do no wrong!

Based on music:

- Tom Waits! For some reason I associated him with dark tales, and folk tales. Naming a perfume after him would be swell especially for fall. "Little Drop of Poison" is a good song.

- Glenn Danzig. He was the front man for the Misfits & Samhain,
I would wear a perfume called Danzig, like everyday.


Based on books/comics:

- famous horror authors/writers- Edward Gorey (The Gashlycrumb Tinies), HP lovecraft(the call of cthulhu, the alchemist), Lewis Caroll (Alice in wonderland, Jabberwocky, Edgar Allen Poe ((The Premature Burial, The Tell-Tale Heart, Lenore, The Raven, Annabel Lee, The Masque of Red Death, Black Cat)

Based on people:

Bela Lugosi!

Vincent Price really solid filmography! I mean you can expand ideas on this big time. He played
so many vital roles: : Dr. Erasmus Craven, Nicholas Medina, The Abominable Dr. Phibes, Fredrick Loren, Francois Delambre

Bruce Campbell he is just awesome. Man with the Screaming Brain :)

Jeffrey Combs, underrated but awesome. Great films to base anything off of.

Anything based on the great horror directors: Romero, Raimi, Tarantino, Rodriguez, I think that'd
be cool.

Hope this all helps! So glad you do stuff like this, you are awesome Lysa!

-Sherrell

The Peach said...

What fun! My first vote goes to Carnival of Souls. Once of my favorite classic horrors! But I think I saw someone already mention it. So here are some more of my ideas:

Phantom Stranger
Dragula
1000 Corpses
Werewolf Woman
Paranormal Activity
Unholy Three

Thats what I have for now! Yes, I'm a huge Rob Zombie fan!

keepalot said...

Don't tell you didn't think about a perfume about your car Romero....
You almost owe us this!
;)

I hope something feminine so, how would smell "Silent Hill" nurses for you??

Or maybe a perfume about the Children from "The Village of the Damned"??

List could be long. Don't tempt me!

Defector said...

I would love to see a perfume dedicated to either H.P. Lovecraft or Aleister Crowley. Both are interesting and iconic and both have that slightly supernatural and otherworldly feel to them that I associate with The Morbid The Merrier :)

zillah1199 said...

Night on Bald Mountain from Disney's Fantasia. Scared me spitless as a little kid.

Theda Bara, Poe's Ligeia, La Belle Dame Sans Merci, The Woman in White, Rasputin, John Dee, Macbeth's witches.

Syzigyn said...

So many amazing suggestions so far! I second the idea of the Toxic avenger!

Actually, I was going to say you could do a line from Lovecraft:
Cthulhu
Dagon (maybe seaweed as an ingredient?)
Nyarlathotep
Yog-Sothoth

The Cenobite idea was pretty awesome too. as was the Puppet Master Line.

But what I really Really REALLY want is a remake of "The saw is family".... by and far still the most complimented scent I have ever gotten from you. i have roughly 7 uses left in that bottle, and I fight with myself every day not to use them, instead saving them for some special occasion.

The Morbid The Merrier said...

Eric - didn't you win the contest last year?

dolphindolls2 said...

Bathsheda Babbling (from HP), The Alchemyst is Nicholas Flamel (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel), Dumbledore, Albus Percival Wulfric Brian (HP), and Lockhart, Gilderoy (HP)

Amber said...

Anything based off the Evil Dead series would be cool. I also loved that some one mentioned suspiria because I imagine you could do something really cool with that.

Cinnamatrix said...

Cinnamatrix said...

I would LOVE to smell a Morticia (from the Addams Family) or a Wednesday scent that you come up with and I really love the idea of doing The Joker from Batman.

I also REALLY want to smell what you come up with for Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie) from House of 1000 Corpses. She is sexy, smart, and insane. I know you would do her justice :). I can't wait for Halloween!!!

msnursekins said...

I love the whole campy 80's horror thing...like a stepfather(that movie was a favorite) perfume...so many silly ways to do that..
Or I always loved the movie creepshow as a child...so like a crate scent or father' day cake type scent...again fun
In the same neighborhood the Twilight zone movie...the creepy thing on the plane wing or the child that controls that whole house..again so many avenues..
I would adore a joker type series or for that matter Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger,dracula ect and base a scent on each variation of that character...example..joker ala dark knight is not joker ala Tim Burton...
A creepy foody series would be awesome like taking something innocent and pairing it with something dark...like say caramel apples from the seventh level of hell ...
creepy world destinations...like the death island outside italy or places have a high level of paranormal or haunting type issues...

Oh one last dearm scent...I would adore a series based on the Shining movie...there must be a elevator of blood scent :)

Bridgett said...

I realize I'm a bit late to the party but I'm so excited! My suggestions are:

Mater Suspiriorum from Suspiria-I would be so excited to see what you do with this.

Pumpkinhead

The Crypt Keeper-My biggest childhood fear.

The Bell Witch

A Night In The Lonesome October(Book)

Harold(short children's story from Scary Stories 3)

Thank you for including us. I'm so pumped to see what you create!

nancy rainey said...

I would like to see your Edgar (from your Odditoria line) meet up with Lizzy Borden as well as Dr. Caligari meeting up with the Brother's Quay! Fun- thanks for letting us in!

beatrixp said...

I would LOVE to see a Talky Tina from the old Living Doll Twilight Zone Episode theme. As in "My name is Talky Tina, and I'm going to kill you..." Actually, an entire classic Twilight Zone collection would be really cool.

productlovinmommy said...

Even though I think you sleepy hollow collection is divine, Maybe more of a pure pumpkin scent for Pumpkinhead? and for the second one, maybe something with peppermint, something cool for a ghost? oooooh I know ZOMBIE!!!!!

Moonchildsoaps said...

Rhoda Penmark from the Bad Seed, nature vs nuture "Some people are just born evil"
The 1948 movie The Snakepit

Heather said...

The Silent Hill video game series

House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski (A scent for the hallway just gives me chills! I'd buy that in an instant just to know what it would smell/feel like to be in it!)

A signature scent for both Oryx and Crake from Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake

And of course, Anne Rice's vampires! Especially Armand! *swoon*

Ranter said...

I would love to see a perfume for each of Henry VIII's wives. Catherine of Aragon would have seville oranges in it somewhere due to her being Spanish. Jane Seymour would be a light ethereal fragrance as she was very frail and quiet. Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard would be very tragic because of being beheaded...wonderfully gothic! Anne of Cleves would be something germanic and Katherine Parr would be floral - but maybe in a middle aged kind of way like lilly of the valley because she was older (by Tudor standards) and twice widowed when she married Henry. Oh my mind could just run amok imagining wild and dark fragrances! :)

Vicky said...

I would love to see some scents that pay homage to Japanese horror movies. There are so many classics, such as Ringu, Dark Water, One missed call, Ju-on (the grudge), etc. I also think that zombie movies would be fun to make scents to. Shaun of the dead, World war Z, Zombieland, Resident Evil etc are all zombie movies that I'd love to see featured.

Robin Bonneau Yokel said...

ooooo... I make solid perfumes myself, but I would like to see liquid perfume versions of the man-eating mermaid from "she creature," the white queen from chronicles of narnia, lucy westenra, and one representing the short story "the yellow wallpaper." oh, and something vincent price, because he is a genius and deserves it. and agatha christies\'s dark man of mystery: harley quinn

alyssa said...

I'd like to see Beetlejuice or Sweeney Todd (I can just imagine something SPICY for this one! ;]).

I also second Jack Skellington (like omg, please please please do this one!) and Edward Scissorhands. And also the hard apple cider scent. Yum!

I'm so excited to see what you come up with!!!

alyr3 at hotmail dot com

Buccaneers and Ball Gowns said...

I know Doctor Who isn't a scary show at all, but they have some frightening villains! I would love a weeping angel perfume (those things are terrifying) also there is an episode with these creepy clockwork french courtier robots which would be good, as well as many more!

The Morbid The Merrier said...

You guys are making my life difficult!!!!! ha ha. There is 11 more days for the contest - I simply cannot believe the terrific participation this year. Amazing.

Packgal said...

I would love to see an "Other Mother" (referring to the movie Coraline) and a Maleficent...both somewhat beautiful in their own way but utterly evil.

feuerpause said...

I'd love the see something inspired by H.R.Giger's art, especially inspired by "Lilith" or his interpretation of Baphomet.

:D

bits in plastic said...

I'm thinking a pair of complimentary scents called Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett would be amazing! You could even expand the line to other Fleet Street characters (which would make me happier than words could express!).

Ooo, I'd also love to see Susperia, Ripley (from the Alien movies) and Kessler (from An American Werewolf in London). And maybe Caro or Vanet from Circus of Horrors. Wow, now that you've got me thinking of it there are so many!!!

Krystal said...

I would LOVE to see some Lost Boys inspired scents! (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093437/). From that movie we could get: The Frog Brothers, Michael, Star, Nanook (Sam's dog), David, etc.

Also, how about some fragrances inspired by the old Freak Shows acts? Not the most PC idea, but it would go along with your carnival theme: The Elephant Man, The Bearded Lady, Lobster Boy, etc.

I am also into Buffy the Vampire Slayer (see a theme here?): Spike, Buffy, Faith, Angel, etc.

The Grimm fairy tales are originally really dark and creepy: Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel & Gretle, etc.

sperrfeuer said...

I just saw my comment by using OpenID got through [blogspot was giving me an errorpage the time I tried posting :/].
Just so you know, I didn't want to cheat by repeating myself through my blogspot-nick. :D Thank you <3!

On topic:
Female character that I adore Heather from the survival horror game Silent Hill: Eileen and Heather.

~ Jennifer ~ said...

There are some really fab ideas here- Already mentioned ones I had been thinking heavily about were:

Jack/ Sally/ Zero/ Oogie Boogie/ Deadly Nightshade, etc from Nightmare before Christmas. Such beloved characters with great potential.

The Rocky Horror/ Campy idea. Sweet Transvestite is a delicious name for a perfume!

Morticia Addams- such a fantastic possibility! Upscale, high fashion, extremely sexy, with a French edge ...but entirely creepy. I would love to see what Lysa would do with this.

I also was really pondering the Maleficient angle. Lightning, eerie green smoke, wool, blood... thundering background as you open the bottle. "Why so melancholy?"

Also the Evil Queen from Snow White. Smoke & mirrors. Apples, poison, hatred, jealousy and failure.

Ok, on to my other ideas-
Why not simply-
Morbid.
The pet scent of the shop. Just the word itself conjures so many thoughts, ideas, smells.
Scary, gruesome, macabre. Grisly, unwholesome, downright frightening.
Morbid. The scent.

Also Beheaded.
Guillotine. Axe. Executioner. Death. Steel. Wood. Crowd. Sweat. Blood. Gasps. Vomit. Ok, maybe not vomit. But you get the idea.

I would love to see what Lysa would do with these two possibilities as well-

"Dance with the Devil in the pale moonlight..."

and Morgana le Fay of Arthurian legend- played expertly by Helen Mirren in Excalibur. One of my all time favorite guilty pleasure movies.
So, a Morgana / Charm of Making scent.... Ann'al Nathrak Uthvas Bthud' D'okeiel Tienve.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvkmQceOWbw

Lots of inspired ideas in this thread.
However, I'm sure whatever you have up your tattered evil sleeve will WOW us one and all!

Revery Cloud said...

So excited for all of the new products you've been mentioning! I've been loving all of the wonderful posts. I came back because I forgot to mention one and didn't see it posted...have you ever done a Jekyll & Hyde scent? Would looove to see a duo scent, one for day and one for night to stick with the split personality theme. I know you could do something fun and amazing with the imagery for packaging.

Holly Gomez said...

Gretta Gorebo, Fantasm

Dimitri said...

Samara (from The Ring), Two guys in White (from Funny Games) and Lydia (Beetlejuice!)

Also some collection featuring "monsters" and legends from different countries, ie Banshee, Lepechaun, in my ase I'm from Argentina and we have the Zapan Zucum (http://eloo.com.ar/mitos.htm), etc

catladysnook said...

Please please please hit up some Poe. Ligeia, Black Cat, even a nod to the Master of Macaber himself Vincent Price. How about some silver screen classic icons along the lines of Irena (Cat People), Talbot (Wolfman), and Costello (from funny men Abbott and Costello). *shifty eyes* If you ever make a Draven scent (The Crow) I will honestly horde your stock. C'mon, a whole "Crow" line with names like Shelley, Top Dollar, T-Bird, Tin Tin, Funboy, Myca? X-mas in October I tell you!
