Perfume List
 

 

 

Below we provide the list of all fragrances that Dark Tales created. Some perfumes stayed in the permanent collection; others were a limited edition only or discontinued.

Antiquities
 

Do you remember the classic novel by Charles Dickens, "The Old Curiosity Shop"? Imagine its atmosphere: peculiar artefacts, old furniture, centenary books, vintage instruments, and dusty wooden shelves that conceal secrets of history. 
"Antiquities" is a unisex fragrance with a persistent scent of old cedar in the base, spiced with myrrh, vetiver, and black musk. The smoked pear and angelica bring memories of the past, complemented by the light touch of coffee.

Bathory
 

“Bathory” fragrance was inspired by the legendary “Bloody Countess” (Erzsébet Bathory) who lived in 1560-1614. She was taking baths of blood drained from young virgin girls, whom she tortured first, to preserve her beauty and youth. However, after so many centuries, we still don’t know if that was actually true or if the crown and the church only framed her to take away her power and lands.

This scent reflects Erzsébet’s nature in the author’s interpretation. As one of the most beautiful women of her time, Erzsébet charmed men with an unspoken beauty and a deep mind. That is the first impression of this perfume: the top notes will take you to a blossoming Orange garden with Bergamot and Clary Sage. Then, with time, the scent gets deeper, uncovering its sweet heart notes of Rose and Ylang-Ylang. And, finally, the redolence is taken over by Vetiver and Sandalwood.

 “Bathory” fragrance isn’t as simple as it might seem at first, hiding its dark secrets deep inside.

Black Magick
 

a rich, sweet-spicy and unique fragrance. The combination of cinnamon and vanilla is bewitching. 

It is one of the most long-lasting scents in the Dark Tales line due to three strong base notes harmonically combined in a fiery way.

Crimson
(Castle Ghost)

"Ghosts are real. This much I know. There are things that tie them to a place, very much like they do us. Some remain tethered to a patch of land, a time and date, the spilling of blood, a terrible crime. But there are others, others that hold on to an emotion, a drive, loss, revenge, ...or love. Those, they never go away".
/ Edith Cushing, "Crimson Peak".

Fragrance can be described as dark, saturated, earthy and sweet - the memory of the ghost’s former life, who is moving in between the rooms and dark corridors of an old castle.

Medieval
 

Imagine the Middle Ages: blooming of the Catholic Church, cobbled streets, best-quality heavy fabrics, old castles, the smell of steel, and blossoming gardens.

This perfume is for those who love to drown in medieval novels, visit museums, castles and enjoy the view of Gothic Cathedrals.
Scent can be described as deep, saturated and a little spicy.

Morning Powder

a delicate, sensual, and powdery fragrance.

Mystic Ink

Have you ever been captured by the book so thoroughly that you lost track of time? "Mystic Ink" will capture your senses the same way and take you on an olfactory journey to a far-away land with oriental undertones, soil notes, flowers and sweet fruits.

"Mystic Ink" is a gradual perfume, going from low and quite dark earthly notes to light and sweet ones, changing its shades.

Neroli • Sweet Orange • Rose • Red Rose • Violet • Angelica • Turmeric • Cistus • Peru Balsam • Soil Moss • Oakmoss • Oud.

Old Library

Ideate a medieval monastery library from the novel "The Name of the Rose" by Umberto Eco - full of dark secrets, manuscript treasures, world knowledge, wooden bookshelves, and labyrinths of secret passages... The monks in heavy dark cloaks grow herbs on the monastery hills that spread their rich smell all over the area.
Or, in case you don't know that masterpiece of literature, the "Old Library" reminds you of old dusty books with fragile pages, which soaked up the smell of the wooden bookshelves. You take one of those hundred-year-old books and get comfortable in the velvet armchair with a cup of hot and sweet tea with bergamot.

Scent can be described as warm, deep, saturated, woodsy and powdery spicy-sweet (even a little "dusty").

Notes:

Bergamot • Basil • Rosewood • Cedar • Vanilla • Vetiver • Peru Balsam.

Victorian

The Victorian era is a marvellous period that gave us exceptional fashion, architecture, decorative arts, new types of criminal minds like Jack the Ripper and, of course, literature with its remarkable Gothic novels.

Like the Victorian times, this fragrance is balancing between romanticism due to the flowery notes and scepticism (frankincense and musk), rationalism and mysticism, with the central accord of a rare Damask Rose.

White Musk • Neroli • Grapefruit • Ylang-Ylang • Rose • Rosewood • Jasmine • Damask Rose • Cistus.
