Today is Halloween, and if you spent the weekend at a party, have already wiped the makeup off their face and returned to their usual look, Monday is not a reason to say goodbye to mystical chic. We propose to polish the festive sensations with the darkest aromas that perfume critic Ksenia Golovanova has collected for us.

Elvira's Vamp perfume

Demeter Fragrance Library, 1,500 rubles

Elvira’s Vamp is dedicated to the immortal comedy Elvira: The Lady of Darkness, which has been making us happy for nearly 30 years. In the film, the main character rebuffs the ominous Prince of Darkness with the help of a poodle, an old cookbook and a murderous neckline, here - a shell of belladonna, tobacco flowers and an orchid of the genus Dracula (in any case, they are declared in the composition). What really hatched: the gloomiest, straight from the grave mound of tuberose and gardenia with its characteristic tone of damp earth. A great scent for a Halloween party.

Charogne perfume

Etat Libre d'Orange, 7 500 rubles

Life, as Engels formulated, is a form of existence of protein bodies, and proteins are chains of amino acids. One of the most important is tryptophan, a substance that is part of all living organisms. When it decomposes, indole is obtained from it - an ingredient that is blown away in perfumery for the unobvious aromas of rot, decomposition and feces. In a word, in itself it is never a delicacy, but it gives the natural smells of jasmine, daffodil or lily depth and interior warmth, due to which they are often called intoxicating. In Charogne, whose name translates from French as "carrion", indole is very noticeable: the lily and jasmine are ripe and earthy, like in a funeral home, and imaginary fur coats are arranged with lavender and mothballs. A strange, sad, beautiful aroma - a real "Trupecky's estate".

Candle Edgar Allan Poe

Paddywax, 2,000 rubles

The smell of "Edgar Allan Poe" is quite gloomy, but not hopeless - as if the Usher house did not fall, but went under the hammer to the new owners in time. They aired it thoroughly and, as they could, put it in order: on the first floor, instead of "cold, heavy and hopeless despondency" settled the smell of cardamom, which the young hostess refills her morning coffee, rubbed massive wooden furniture with walnuts, and put dried wormwood - to fend off rats and mice.

Devil's Nightcap perfume

Lush, £ 44

Devil’s Nightcap is a popular nickname for a huge, ancient and moderately famous stone that has inexplicably landed in the plush middle of the moorland in the south of England. It is translated as "Satan's nightcap", but the word nightcap has another meaning - "a glass of something strong for the night." The second scent suits better: it is a very drunk and bitter green chypre aged in an oak barrel, something that the druids could warm up during the October night ritual. Alas, the Russian Lush fragrance has disappeared (only the eponymous and very good, albeit expensive, soap remains), but you can still order it on the brand's English website.

Rose Infernale perfume

Terry de Gunzburg, 15 555 rubles

The best Terry de Gunzburg scent is a smoky gothic rose in a cloud of incense. This is the perfect unisex: Dean Corso, the second-hand dealer in Polanski's Ninth Gate, who trades in rare tomes, and the green-eyed Babylonian harlot from the same film could also wear it. The rose is honeyed, incense is cold, and the tree is old and dark, like in a library where stolen incunabula are kept.

Candle Apocalyptic

Byredo, 4 387 rubles

The meteorite fell in the impenetrable taiga: it smells of red-hot iron, smoldering peat and melted stone, the influx of resin on the spruce bark hiss and "shoot", and damp branches smoke.

Perfume Black Tourmaline

Olivier Durbano, 11 800 rubles

Black tourmaline, as "Stone Magic" and other sites, touched by the paw of the occult beetle, inform us, is a favorite mineral of witches and sorcerers.In the past, so-called mourning jewelry was made from it: the heyday of this jewelry genre, along with posthumous photography and morbid ghost stories, fell on the Victorian era. It is clear that, translated into perfumery language, tourmaline cannot sound sunny and cheerful - you expect concentrated darkness and mystical horror. The latter is overtaken with voluminous and dense, like stage smoke, incense, and smoked, greasy, charred skin is responsible for the dark colors - a sacrificial beast in an autumn fire.

Perfume Coven

Andrea Maack, on request

"Sabbat" is simple, but effective, like a recipe for a folk remedy: take five parts of dry earth, three - alder cones and two each - thyme, mint and chaga, let it brew and wave half a glass right after sunset. The green, bitter and mineral mixture takes for a living and bothers a little - this is how loose soil smells like a fresh burrow in the depths of the darkest thicket.

Moonshine candle

Broad Street, 2,500 rubles

Moonshine (again a double translation - either "moonlight" or "moonshine") retells an autumn evening in the smugglers' den: it smells of strong cherry tobacco, homemade whiskey and leather boots left to dry by the fire.
