He had stepped over the precipice. There was no going back. In his imagination, he could already feel the prick of needle-sharp fangs in his neck, a sharp prelude to eternal life.
The sound began. It was low and sad, like the rushing of an underground river. It took him several long seconds to recognize it as laughter.
"This is not life," said the voice.
It said nothing more, and after a while the young man knew he was alone in the graveyard.
Apple blossom, peppermint, allspice, and yellow sandalwood speckled with grave loam and clods of grave dirt.
From Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, this is a scent and art print based on Neil Gaiman's short story, "15 Painted Cards from a Vampire Tarot."
Each package comes with a 5ml bottle of perfume inspired by the tale, as well as the Limited Edition Variant of the "Fool" tarot card created by Alicia Dabney & signed by Neil Gaiman!
