The lights are on
Chances are, when you think of the word "Orc," a few words spring to mind. Perhaps "green" or "drool." Maybe "disgusting" or "feral." Possible even "horrible D&D nerd stuff." At any rate, most people wouldn't associate the creatures with "fragrance." Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab is clearly not run by typical people. The company has released a line of RPG-themed scents, including one inspired by Orcs. Honestly.
The line includes a variety of fragrances spread across familiar races, classes, and alignments. For example, Dwarf evokes smells of "Iron filings and chips of stone, Styrian Golding hops, and soot-covered leather." Mage contains "gurjum balsam, Sumatran dragon's blood resin, olibanum, galangal, oleo gum resin, and frankincense." My personal favorite is evil, which combines the essences of "smouldering opium tar, tobacco absolute, green tea, black plum, kush, ambergris accord, ambrette seed, and costus root."
Bottles will set you back about $17.50 for 5 ml. Considering that you'll be able to smell like a freaking Orc, that sounds like a ridiculously small price to pay. Then again, I have serious issues with money management.

I don't know what to say. A few words come to mind, redundant, idiotic, wasteful. Everyone has to make a living I guess, but designing smells you think are orclike is probably not something that makes you proud of what you do.
First day buy. I had my money saved to buy food for my family, but this is just too big of a deal to pass up.
...Well, I already smell like a dwarf before showering at the end of teh day so...screw this stuff.
I already smell like a zombie, so no thanks.
Now smelling like a chocobo?
Mmm patchouli and ass, just like real trolls.
You're kidding, right? O.O
I'm really curious about this. Might have to get some. Cause I'm dumb.
I think I'll stick with normal deodorant, nor would I pay almost 20 bucks for something like that.
If you never want to get laid in your life... this is a definite must buy for you.
That is awesome. I would love to get one of these, especially "Fighter," "Orc," "Chaotic," or "Evil." However, I don't really know if I'm willing to buy a cologne without having a chance to smell it first.
Well, it's certainly conversation topic..."Oh, what's your cologne?" "Oh, it's called 'Orc'." *Slowly steps away*
This is quite interesting indeed i think the Mage one would be interesting to have. I think i may purchase it not really to wear but just to have as an extra scent.
