When I was in the 7th grade I fell in love with the Cthulhu. Yeah, that sounded slightly weird and possibly a lead in for a Japanese fan girl hentai moment. Sorry, let me correct that, I fell in love with Lovecraft. It all started out with me being a terrible bookworm you see. I was all about reading R.L. Stine and other supernatural teen rubbish.
My teacher at the time duly noted my odd addiction to trashy supernatural novels and encouraged it by introducing me to some great works of literature. To this day I blame her for my odd love affair with Victor Frankenstein, of course, Sting might have helped a LITTLE bit as well.
7th grade year was also the year she introduced me to many of H.P. Lovecraft’s smaller stories and novels. Being an avid reader of Heavy Metal for over twenty years now you could imagine that H.P. Lovecraft’s “Weird Tales” were terribly appealing to my need for anything horrifying and unusual.
Heck by the time I was of age I was positive I’d be a perfect attendee for Miskatonic University.
Needless to say I’ve grown up a little and at this point in life anything with words on it I’ll pretty much read but I still so adore anything Cthulhu related. From old D&D references to new gaming ones, the Cthulhu Mythos has always had a spot in my heart.
Being terribly romantic I’d say the reintroduction of the Lab’s Cthulhu in Love Perfume Oil is a perfect V-Day treat to tell the one you care about how truly in love you are with them.
The funny thing about this monster is Lovecraft’s version is far tamer than what you see or hear in modern day literature, games, and art and actually you wouldn’t think it, but the Great Cthulhu is apparently a great romantic at heart….!
Or so says the Lab.
Black Phoenix Lab created Cthulhu in Love sometime ago…I’m not a fan to be honest….it’s incense, kelp, ozone, ocean-y, and…chocolate…I suppose you can’t have a Cthulhu in love without V-Day chocolates. I purchased my first bottle a long while ago for obvious reasons and have since collected many of the Picnic in Arkham scents….one can’t resist…..last year, someone purchased me another bottle for Valentine’s Day and I must say the scent somehow started to grow on me. It seems like the Lab always adds something to a re-released fragrance and it seemed like last year was the year I’d finally start to LIKE Cthulhu in Love. Not love mind you but like.
Now this fine fragrance oil is back, for a limited time, and available exclusively at ThinkGeek.com
If wearing it attracts tentacle-faced monsters, I’m all in. Kinda, sorta….not La Blue Girl in but on some more romantic level, something like that. Yeah….!
Happy early V-Day Cthulhu lovers!
