Dan Brereton's Nocturnals Collections 1 & 2

NOTICE the Nocturnals are joining the Permanent Collection sometime in 2023 with a new small label look, new perfume and a new bottle.  "Collaborations" is being retired.  Poppy Z Brite and Midnight Syndicate are both retiring at the end of 2022.


Nocturne Alchemy presents The Nocturnals fragrances.  Scents created representing the Author's imaginary sense of smell for the characters of the Nocturnals. Created by Nocturne Alchemy and Emerson Hart with the author/artist Dan Brereton.


"The fragrances created by Nocturne Alchemy are amazing - somehow they managed to capture the dimension of the characters that I've never even touched on- scents inspired by their personalities, as well as their individual styles."
~Dan Brereton
"I have always been a fan of Dan's work, but the Nocturnals have always been a part of my Halloween heart. Being able to work and collaborate with Dan has been a dream come true. Dan has an excellent sense of scent when it comes to his characters and that only made my job easier in the process in our perfume writing. Perfume that crosses artwork with the sense of a little darkness, amber, spice and of course, Halloween." ~Emerson Hart
