This is partly for my own reference, but here are all the GC/impable scents that contain a tea note. (Plus a few that don't have one listed but smell like it.)

 

 

black

Aizen-Myoo

Eros (says crimson tea, which is the same thing as black tea)

Dorian

Nostrum Remedium

Plunder (doesn't say black in description but reviews seem to agree)

The Great Sword of War

White Rabbit

 

white

Baobhan Sith

Iambe

Kumiho

Maiden

Manhattan

The Harlot's House

Tweedledee

 

green

Bewitched

Cordelia

Embalming Fluid

Herbert West (no tea note in description, but a lot of reviewers pick it up)

Phantasm

Shanghai

The Apothecary (doesn't say green in description but reviews seem to agree)

Tweedledum

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Bat

 

other

Against Idleness and Mischief (some reviewers describe it as like herbal tea, has chamomile)

Bengal (chai, though no actual tea note)

Bread-and-Butterfly ("weak tea" is a note; not enough reviews to tell, but I would guess it would be black tea)

Kubla Khan (not specified, probably black, but reviews say it doesn't show up)

Libertine (chamomile and bergamot)

Dian's Bud (nothing in description, some reviewers get various tea notes)

Silk Road (description is vague, some reviewers get tea, herbal tea or chai)

Sudha Segara (chai)

The Dormouse (multiple)

The Lion (chai)

Utrennyaya (some reviewers get mint tea)

Veritas (has chamomile, not enough reviews yet to know how prominent or herbal-tea-like it is)

 

 

(I have a friend with whom I bond over a love of tea, and I have considered enabling her. I'll probably pick six of these and send them in a box with a teacup and some tea.)

This is the sort of thing that appeals to me strongly :D I may have accidentally repeated some themes but I think I didn't.

 

I made *rules* for myself. Impable GCs only, common knowledge only (nothing that your average well-educated person, as BPAL fans/potential fans tend to be, would typically have to wiki to get the reference, unless it's self explanatory to the theme like Antikythera Mechanism which fits even if you don't get the reference), six items each.

 

BESTIARY

- Jabberwocky

- Loup Garou

- The Unicorn

- Black Phoenix

- Dragon's Blood (for lack of a just-plain-dragon)

- Chimera

 

I think this could be nicely given with any book about mythological creatures, or you could package it up with one of those Care of Magical Creatures notebooks you see all over Etsy.

 

CABINET OF CURIOSITIES (I know, I know... CD has one already. GC!)

- Wolf's Heart

- Black Opal

- Dragon's Claw

- The Antikythera Mechanism

- The Robotic Scarab

- Mandrake

 

To be given, naturally, with real curiosities: feathers, turtle shells, strange stones, old mechanical oddities, or perhaps a taxidermied creature in a bell jar.

 

LOOKS CAN BE DECEIVING

- Poisoned Apple

- Dana O'Shee

- Mata Hari

- Intrigue

- Siren

- Snake Oil

 

... With a hollowed-out book and a poison ring. Naturally. If you ditch the "common knowledge" rule, Kumiho is a shoe-in for this list as well. I'd replace Intrigue with it, or possibly Snake Oil.

Alchemy! (/hermeticism/mysticism/masonry)

Saint-Germain

Rose Cross

I can't think of any more. :/ Hellfire isn't quite the same thing.

For the World of Warcraft-obsessed geeks in your life: (all-GC) :P

 

Horde:

Trolls: Troll, Voodoo

Undead: Embalming Fluid, Detestable Putrescence

Blood Elves: anything blood-themed

Goblin

Crossroads

The Apothocary

 

Alliance:

Night Elves: Yggdrasil (?)

Dwarves: some of the mineral scents, perhaps?

Gnomes: any Steamworks!

Worgen: Wolf's Heart, Fenris Wolf, Loup Garou, Wolfsbane (?)

The Stormhold (ok, it's not Stormwind, but close enough!)

 

Either:

Warlocks: Imp, Whip, Pain, Hellfire

Mages: Arcana, Magus

Warriors: War, the Great Sword of War

Death Knights: Eau de Ghoul, Zombi

Druid: Thorns

Shaman: Coyote, Bloodlust

Galvanic Goggles (for the engineers)

Satyr

Meskhenet (she's a harpy!)

just about anything dragon-themed

just about anything pirate-themed

 

Sadly, I'm stumped... I can't think of anything Orc-themed.

Tauren could be something grassy, I suppose.

I'm just skipping Humans altogether!

Has anyone put together a "Labyrinth" themed list? (I'm thinking of the old movie with Bowie.) I was thinking about this last night and wondering if I should try and find a good peach scent...

Ahaha, this is genius. I just went through my imps and made myself one of these packs. My boyfriend already likes bpal and spn, this would make a great gift I think I'd also add Good and Evil from the rpg line.

 

ETA: And Lilth or Eve, if you do season themed packs.

OH. I am going to be giving so many BPAL theme packs for Christmas this year, methinks. You guys have come up with some incredible ideas!

 

How about a REPO! The Genetic Opera theme pack? (Pared down from my way-too-extensive REPO! set.)

 

- Nyx (Shilo)

- Whitechapel (Nathan)

- Veil (Marni)

- Al-Shairan (Rotti)

- Hell's Belle (Amber)

- The Lady of Shalott (Blind Mag)

- Zombi (Graverobber)

- Bloodlust (Luigi)

- Masquerade (Pavi)

- Gomorrah (GeneCo)

- Grand Guignol (The Genetic Opera)

- Absinthe (Zydrate)

 

Completed with the REPO! DVD and/or soundtrack, a blue glowstick, a (fake) bug in a jar, a medical mask... and for the hardcore fan, a framed REPO! art print from Terrance Zdunich's website.

 

Edited to replace a couple of unimpables.

This is perfect! I'm halfway through season 6 at the moment - must be the last person in the tv-viewing world to finish this series.

 

I particularly like your picks for Kate, Sawyer and Daniel. And for the island itself? I'm thinking The Isles of Demons :think:

So, if you were putting together a list of scents for a villianess, which ones would you choose? I vaguely have Snow White's wicked queen, Maleficiant, and the Wicked Witch of the West in mind. You can add your own, list scents for wicked queens in general or be specific.
