Elizabeth Barrial, Mother Supreme of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Twilight Alchemy Lab, ritually crafted one of two limited edition perfume oils during the series election, adjusted per her location.
For those seeking the protective aspects of Mother Algol but wary of an unmoderated influence, these collaborations are a good choice, as they’re more directed than the purely Stellar take, and therefore offer gentler engagement.
Of Drakontomalloi in particular, she shares —
And to Phorcys Ceto bore… the Gorgones who, beyond the famous stream of Okeanos, live in the utmost place toward night, by the singing Hesperide: they are Sthenno, Euryale, and Medousa, whose fate is a sad one, for she was mortal, but the other two immortal and ageless both alike.
This is an oil for the Gorgons – for veneration, prayer, and evocation. It is an oil of fierce and fearsome protection dedicated to the Gorgons and crafted under the watchful eye of Algol. This is a chorus of screams of primordial rage, this is a stony primeval bulwark that defends against curses. This is a guardian oil, snake-kissed and armored with unyielding scales of ekplektos, krúoeis, and déos.
Then he took up his man-surrounding, much-emblazoned forceful shield,
a thing of beauty, around which ran ten rings of bronze,
and on it twenty pale-shining disks of tin,
and in the very center was one of dark enameled blue.
And crowning this a bristling Gorgon face
stared out with dreadful glare, and Fear and Flight about her;
and the shield’s baldric was of silver, and on it
a blue-dark serpent writhed, with three heads
turned in all directions, growing from a single neck.
This is a protection oil that defends you by striking terror into those who would do you harm; it will hone your wrath, your anguish, and your fury into a blackened, hissing shield that deflects any malicious intent. This oil utilizes pure, unmitigated fear to protect you from your enemies.
Steam-distilled mugwort essential oil (Artemisia alba) and mugwort from the TAL garden (Artemisia vulgaris), agrimony (Agrimonia eupatoria), Egyptian myrrh essential oil and myrrh tears (Commiphora myrrha), opoponax tears (Commiphora opoponax), guggul resin (Commiphora mukul), nettle leaf (Urtica dioica), oakmoss and oakmoss absolute (Evernia prunastri), galbanum absolute and CO2 extract of galbanum (Ferula galbaniflua), patchouli leaf and patchouli essential oil (Pogostemon cablin), celery seed essential oil (Apium graveolens), and three snake sheds.

I'm a huge BPAL fan and this is among one of my favorite collabs! The scent is smoky, spicy, mesmerizing - extremely commanding and packs a punch. I've worn this out when I feel I'd like the extra protection (especially when I'm out very late in the city and/or I know I'll be around crowds.) This perfume makes me feel reassured and more powerful and, on top of that, I've had some significant feeling-protected experiences while wearing this. Highly recommend (if this series is ever made again!)
I absolutely adore the scent of this! I like it so much that I would wear it simply as a perfume, but oh the power and protection that goes with it makes me use it with more awareness and appreciation than a simple fragrance.
I just feel safe and protected from harm when I wear this. It’s hard to explain but it seems to cushion me from direct assault, be it a shade or any negativity. Thank you, Beth for creating this.
I keep this perfume oil on my altar within a black velvet pouch and only take it out or use it for occasions I feel I need some extra strength and spiritual protection/armor. Its scent is pleasant its hard to pin down exactly but its a mix of green/rooty/spicy smells with something darker more foreboding you can't exactly put your finger on.
I love the smell of this perfume, and I feel armored up when I wear it. As I work in security, this goes on whenever I'm required to wear a knife vest. I'll also wear it in my down time when I go out for my 2 hour solo walks (it gets dark here at 2:30..) and I feel completely protected and watched over. The scent reminds me of the patronage of dark goddesses; it's deep and committed. I think I'd wear this if I knew I had any sort of contentious day ahead, as the 'don't fuck with me vibes' are so strong.
Being one of only two women in my department, I experience sexism almost daily. When I was training for my position, the man who was training me actually attempted to groom me, and was, of course, quite careful about his wording. Anyone who has been in this position knows that you must proceed carefully. You cannot say "You're making me uncomfortable" because then you are labeled a drama queen or "crazy"; so what to do?
I got really pissed at one point and I went off (still fkn proud of it though). This guy did a preemptive strike and went to our boss. It's funny because I wouldn't have said anything to our boss or HR but he was genuinely scared of me and thought he would "beat me to the punch". Instead, he actually outed himself, and wben my boss asked me for my side, I was cool as a cucumber.
Who do I have to thank? Drakontmalloi. The man cannot even make eye contact for longer than five seconds now. Was it me, or was it Mother Algol? I think it was both of us, reminding this guy that his behavior won't go unchecked, especially if he is making anyone feel unsafe.
I am so thankful for this product. I work in a industry where people stab each other in the back, gossip and compete with each other although they are supposed to work together as a team. I feel like a lone wolf at times, But, after using this oil, I feel I step into my power, am more confident and more courageous. I can spot the "frienemies" but notice they stay out of my way and mind their own business and let me mind my own. Thank you so much for this amazing product.
