Have you ever wanted to smell like the hybrid offspring of Fallen Angels and their human lovers?
Well, now you can.
The Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab hand blends a perfume named ‘Nephilim Perfume Oil’:
“Dark children conceived from the union of Fallen Angels and the Daughters of Men. According to lore, the angel Shemhazai led a group of his angels to earth to instruct mankind in the ways of piety and righteousness. After a time, the angels became prey to earthly desires and began to lust after the daughters of man, and thus they fell. They instructed their mortal mates in the arts of conjuration, summoning, necromancy and other magickal arts. The fruits of their union are the Nephilim: possessed of superhuman strength, cunning, and infinite capacity, and hunger for, sin. Venerated as heroes by some, vilified by most, the Nephilim eventually annihilated one another in a cataclysmic civil war instigated by the angel Gabriel as punishment for their transgressions.
Holy frankincense and hyssop in union with earthy fig, defiled by black patchouli and vetiver, with a chaotic infusion of lavender, cardamom, tamarind, rosemary, oakmoss and cypress.”
In addition, Alkemia offers its own ‘Nephilim Perfume Oil’, featuring even more daring ingredients:
“A chthonic seduction. A dark, earthy union of aged iron distilled patchouli and black oud with a mineralistic accord of gypsum flower and brimstone.”
So from the ingredient lists, it appears that neither manufacturer has in fact extracted its scents from the bodily oils of the genuine Nephilim who still live among us.
Or… have they?
