ABOUT THE FILM: HELLBOY (2019)
HELLBOY is back, and he’s on fire. From the pages of Mike Mignola’s seminal work, this action packed story sees the legendary half-demon superhero called to England to battle a trio of rampaging giants. There he discovers The Blood Queen, Nimue, a resurrected ancient sorceress thirsting to avenge a past betrayal. Suddenly caught in a clash between the supernatural and the human, Hellboy is now hell-bent on stopping Nimue without triggering the end of the world.
SCENT DESCRIPTIONS ++ HELLBOY PERFUME
NIMUE THE BLOOD QUEEN
Revenge is the only sustenance I require. Unearthly dark beauty, utterly haunting: a haze of purple poisons, precious oud, black plum, dried black cherries, smoky vegetal musk, and incense.
Tenemos una celebridad aquí esta noche. Muchacho del Infierno! A flap of leathery wings, a splash of mezcal, and crushed clove husk.
Beware the Jabberwock, my child. Sheer skin musk, white amber, white tea, pink clover, and a glob of ectoplasm.]
A bundle of witches’ herbs and honeyed lavender.
I was there on the night you came into our world. A classic 1920’s-style aldehyde with champaca blossom, incense, and sweet red patchouli.
MEN WILL FALL TO HER DARKNESS
And those who call the shadows home will rise again. A haze of blood musk, myrrh, blackened lavender buds, labdanum, and opoponax.
++ HELLBOY ATMOSPHERE SPRAYS
THE STANDING STONE AT PENDLE HILL
A sorrowful moon casts shadows through the boughs of an ancient oak. Scattered fir needles sinking into pools of blood, human and inhuman. Boot-crushed grass, salt air tinged with incense, and fire-ravaged cedar wood.
THE OSIRIS CLUB
Ancient tomes and disturbing artifacts clutter the shelves of a posh club, where eons of incense smoke have seeped into suede and leather seats. A whiff of pipe tobacco and cologne, bourbon and gunpowder.
++ HELLBOY HAIR GLOSSES
This is not over: rage-red musk, razor-sharp tobacco leaf, black oak leaf, dried blackcurrant, and a smoky burst of patchouli.
CROWN OF THORNS
The crown of the Lord of the Shadowlands, Nimue the Blood Queen: a blood-tinged coronet of gold-gilded bramble.
++ HELLBOY BEARD OIL
Bourbon tobacco, gunpowder, and brimstone.
