Hullo m'dears! Exciting stuff, as we announce the following (basically all but Dollymop) fragrances from Beyond the Pale are available for direct order. If you are terribly organised and are already squirreling away gifts for Christmas, or are simply wanting to broaden your horizons by trying perfumes you haven' been able to before... now is your chance!

Below you will find descriptions of all fragrances available to order from us - all available in Try-Me sizes or full sizes. Some of these have NEVER been available as Try-Me sizes - they were the very fist few perfumes we ever released! Others have very rarely been available for long periods of time, as they have sold out as soon as they were launched.

Gather your quill pens and write your wish list from the following scrumptious delights...

- London Particular: A dark, smokey blend of sandalwood, cypress, black pepper, & musky vetiver, with the rich oil of bergamot (famously used to flavour Earl Grey tea) & spicy ginger gently piercing the fog. Full of character, this fragrance is destined to be worn with a stiff upper lip & certain swaggering elegance.

- Lusing Ken: Essential oils of juniper berry (used to flavour gin), clove (very often used in mulled wines & highly intoxicating punches) & black pepper are blended with aromatic cedarwood & vanilla musk in this potent fragrance. Highly unusual, evocative of merriment caused through imbibing; Lushing Ken is for those who know how to roister, caper & carouse through life. Usually worn by gentlemen of disreputable characters, this fragrance may also be worn by painted ladies & gangster's molls. Distinctly not for wallflowers - those who have no one to dance with at parties - of either sex.

- Haymarket Hector: A broodingly handsome blend of spiced ginger, fresh lavender & laconic cedarwood resting nonchalantly on a smooth, long-lasting base of warm sandalwood & darkly glowering vetiver. Comprised of traditional gentlemens' fragrance recipes originally hailing from Provence; Haymarket Hector should be worn by those dastardly rogues who charm with a wink & are a danger to unsuspecting females the world over.

- Strumpet: A saucy blend of rich chocolate, ripe cherry & vanilla musk, blended with pure sandalwood & vetiver for sensual, long-lasting warmth; pure jojoba base. Utterly addictive - redolent of sin.

- Bedlam Bouquet: Rosy-sweet geranium nestles with comforting, fresh rosemary & subtle, calming lavender ; together they gently frottage the slightly sinister base of rich frankincense with hints of dark patchouli & sandalwood. Mellowing beautifully to a fruity, powdered-musk finish, this is a fragrance to wear at times of mental anguish & to prevent attacks of the 'female vapours'.

- Flummery: An enticing blend of spiced honey; pure creamy vanilla; soft, musky cedar, sultry ginger and the calming, powdery note of benzoin. Serenely alluring, dangerously addictive, smells good enough to eat!

- Doxy: A darkly fruity blend of blackberry, spice & all things vice... Juicy blackberries burst with warm hints of ginger, a sprinkle of cinnamon and musky vanilla. The freshness of bergamot whispers of more innocent times, but the richly aromatic, intensely carnal note of vetiver has its wicked way at last...

- Blowsabella: A richly musky & dusky with overtones of incense and hints of a once virtuous past... Alluring amber, sumptuous frankincense & subtle, foxy droplets of sensuous patchouli marry with sandalwood, cypress and dusty benzoin for frivolous romantics & wanton, wayward women.

- Pearl's Flourish: The intensely powdery musk of peony, infused with nutmeg creamy vanilla and sinfully dark vetiver. This is a dangerously sophisticated, delightfully superior perfume to arouse & beguile through the ages...

- Mollisher's Mark: Utterly feminine, powdery parma violets melt intriguingly into fresh rosewood and pure vanilla, infused with a hint of cinnamon, nutmeg and exotic sandalwood in the pure jojoba oil base. Reminiscent of decadent boudoirs, silk stockings draped nonchalantly over the dressing table- the subtle naughtiness of a bygone era; Mollisher's Mark is a long-lasting, uniquely spiced yet subtly floral fragrance, for ladies with pouty lips and a knowing wink...

- Jamais avec les Domestiques: A thoroughly naughty, flamboyantly sensual perfume. Provocative blends of amber, vanilla musk, nutmeg, vetiver & just a touch of clove. For ladies who conduct themselves erenely in Society, but with licentious abandon behind closed doors.

- Rake's Blend: Frisky ginger warms the cockles, with vibrant Virginian cedarwood nestling against clove bud; the freshness of pure spearmint & the irresistible pull of musky vanilla. Both sexes should wear this with caution: ebullient ravishing is likely to occur...

Please contnue to be patient for the complete boxed-sets of Beyond the Pale's fragrances - we shall be releasing these in time for Christmas but are beavering away at the final details!

Sneaky peaks on our journal tomorrow of a brand new fragrance to be launched soon... It's called Pearl's Flourish (the name is deceptively innocent, it's quite terribly shocking when I tell you what the slang means, you know!) and is made to celebrate the infamous 19th century courtesan, Cora Pearl.

If you want to read more about her, you should certainly consider purchasing the excellent book, Courtesans by Katie Hickman. A fabulously informative yet gossipy read!

Alternatively, you could seek out Cora's very own memoirs (now sadly out of print) - I am so fascinated with her that I have done just this and cannot wait to read it. Sounds as though it may be incredibly scandalous...

The erotic reminiscences of the best known courtesan of the Second Empire, revealing the most intimate secrets of lovers from every level of society-even, she claims, the Emporer Napoleon III himself. Recently William Blatchford discovered these authentic memoirs in the private library of a German collector. Cora Pearl discusses in the most graphic detail the sexual prowess and predilections of lovers famous and humble; tells of her erotic exploits on horseback; invents, then ignores, the motto "jamais avec les domestiques:; and describes her presentation at dinner, cream-decked, as an exquisite final dish.

How marvellous. :)

These shall be the last Flummery & Doxy perfumes available for a while, darlings, until we can order more ingredients to make further batches. All those who were disappointed not to buy them in time when we last listed (a few days ago) before they sold out - grab them whilst you can!



Flummery is an enticing blend of spiced honey; pure creamy vanilla; soft, musky cedar, sultry ginger and the calming, powdery note of benzoin. Serenely alluring, dangerously addictive, smells good enough to eat!

Flummery, buy it now!



DOXY is a darkly fruity blend of blackberry, spice & all things vice... Juicy blackberries burst with warm hints of ginger, a sprinkle of cinnamon and musky vanilla. The freshness of bergamot whispers of more innocent times, but the richly aromatic, intensely carnal note of vetiver has its wicked way at last...

Doxy, buy it now!

The deliciously enticing concoction known as Strumpet is now available in FULL SIZE bottles in buy it now eBay listings. Those of you who swooned with delight when this was first released (our very first fragrance, egads!) and who have been clamouring for it ever since, do please hurry along (skipping and singing we feel would be appropriate - or at least squirming with joy in your seat a little...) before they sell out.

For those of you unfamiliar with Strumpet - here's a reminder of the sensual overload that is yours for the taking:

A saucy blend of rich chocolate, ripe cherry & vanilla musk, blended with pure sandalwood & vetiver for sensual, long-lasting warmth; pure jojoba base. Utterly addictive - redolent of sin.

It is incredibly naughty, moreish (ladies have been known to neglect their tasks and spend a great deal of the day sniffing their cleavages & performing wafting actions with their blouses, the better to luxuriate in the sinful blend!) and we have reports from several customers who say that, when wearing Strumpet, they have been overrun with admiring males fawning at them.

Quite how you deal with fawning males is entirely up to you, my darlings. ;-)

Begin the Sin... Buy STRUMPET here.

Current Mood: enthralled

Greetings again, dahlings - we are back and raring to go. The sojournment took longer than expected, as we were stuck in the middle of nowhere in a farmhouse with no internet connection, then delayed further by illness & travel mix-ups. Practically a trip back in time!

Those who pre-release Rakes Blend should have them by now. Apologies for the delay in waiting for labels - we eventually had twice as many labels arrive from America! Oddness.

Those who had mix-ups in their orders have been sent out again, you should be receiving them very soon. :)

As usual we shall announce this well ahead of time so you'll know whehn to expect them. :)

Blowsabella direct link to eBay BUY IT NOW listing.

Blowsabella is for wanton wenches who cavort about in the contents of a dressing-up box, just for the hell of it; the type of gal who dearly wishes she could be kidnapped by pirates, but usually ends up taking the helm... ;-)

Madcap gad-abouts, harum-scarum careless young ladies & wanton women generally are urged to apply posthaste for their bottle of Blowsabella!

You know how quickly these perfumes sell-out, my dears, most especially when they are BRAND NEW fragrances we're launching - so please hurry to avoid disappointment! We wont be launching any other new fragrances for quite some time, as from next Sunday we shall be Away for the next couple of weeks! Rake's Blend shall still be sent to those who pre-ordered it (we're enquiring about the labels on Monday morning, never fear) and we *may* put some listings on eBay for when we are Away, but have yet to see.

If you do not have an eBay account, or prefer not to buy through eBay, click here for direct ordering informationCollapse )

“ He was a little wild: how many young men are; and don’t girls like a rake better than a milksop?”

- William Makepeace Thackeray. (1811–1863). Vanity Fair.



Rake: A fashionable or wealthy man of dissolute or promiscuous habits.

Rake's Blend: Another BRAND NEW fragrance from Beyond the Pale - huzzah!

Frisky ginger warms the cockles, with vibrant Virginian cedarwood nestling against clove bud; the freshness of pure spearmint & the irresistible pull of musky vanilla. Both sexes should wear this with caution: ebullient ravishing is likely to occur...

“How I envy you at times! and how fortunate you are in being a man, naughty rake that you are!”

- Victor Marie Hugo (1802–1885). Notre Dame de Paris.

This is one meant for the gentlemen, but as with our other 'male' fragrances, we suspect many of our ladies shall fall head-over-heels (keep those heels together, girls) for this scent, too. It's particularly suitable for those of us gals who prefer the more unusual, less traditionally girlie fragrances. We like to think (and so experience tells us) that all of our male fragrances are truly unisex, so don't be put off from trying this one, ladies! ;-)

Of course, it goes without saying that the chaps shall adore this. We feel they have been somewhat neglected of late, poor lambs, and Rake's Blend attempts to redress the balance. We have heard tell from our customers, that many a man adverse to the ways of frangrance has been utterly converted by Beyond the Pale's male range. Why not dab a little on the man in your life, then ravish him repeatedly? We think he might get the message. ;-)

Pre-Order YOUR Try-Me size bottle directly from Beyond the Pale!Collapse )

Coming soon(ish*): Blowsabella... Reckless & wanton, for ladies who just don't care. ;-)

*In the next couple of months, we hope!

Mollisher's Mark:

Utterly feminine, powdery parma violets melt intriguingly into fresh rosewood and pure vanilla, infused with a hint of cinnamon, nutmeg and exotic sandalwood in the pure jojoba oil base. Reminiscent of decadent boudoirs, silk stockings draped nonchalantly over the dressing table- the subtle naughtiness of a bygone era; Mollisher's Mark is a long-lasting, uniquely spiced yet subtly floral fragrance, for ladies with pouty lips and a knowing wink...

The word "mollisher" is an old Victorian slang term for a woman of rather dubious moral virtue, often a villain's mistress (hence the more modern phrase 'gangster's moll').



Mollisher: A woman, often a villain's mistress.

Beyond the Pale is an exclusive perfumery based in Royal Tunbridge Wells in the UK.

Using historic recipes and pure essential oils whenever possible, all our fragrances at Beyond the Pale are hand-blended to perfection, poured into amber glass bottles and nestled in classic black sturdy boxes for posting, tied with ruby red string.

We believe that perfumes should be as individual as you are; as intriguing and bewitching as the historical ages they were inspired by. Designed for Ladies & Gentlemen of discernment & distinction, we strive never to be nondescript - always beyond the pale, for your pleasure and delectation...

Mollisher's Mark is our latest fragrance to be released and completely sold out on the day of being launched! This is our second batch, so NO DILLY-DALLYING, dahlings, if you want some!

Hello, I've been googling for hours but I can't find what I want and wonder whether you could help me ..

I am looking for a place that does perfumery course/lengthy workshop/certificate etc in Oregon, USA.

Any help would be very much appreciated, thanks!

Does anyone know of rare perfumes? Can Cerruti image be considered a rare perfume?
