No, really. You may have thought that the bright, glitzy, happy-go-lucky world of musicals and the gloomy, macabre world of Goth would never go together. But in fact, this list was surprisingly easy to make - there are quite a few musicals out there that blend the two together, and not unsuccessfully too.

I've mentioned Goth Rosary several times now. They create all-natural fragrances with darker, Gothic leanings. You can purchase them at www.gothrosary.com.

I found all of them unique, interesting and really appealing, especially to one of Gothic sensibilities! Moreover, I found them very kind to my skin; I'm allergic to alcohol-based scents, and found these oils gave me no reactions at all! Below, I've reviewed my top 13 fragrances from Goth Rosary's collection. I strongly recommend all Goths, male and female alike, should check them out!

Previously, I did a 13-genre exploration of Industrial Music, the most aggressive and brutal of Gothic music. Ethereal Music is on the opposite end of the Goth spectrum: if Industrial is sonic hell, Ethereal is sonic Heaven. It's dreamy, angelic, spacey and relaxing - almost "easy listening" for Goths. Below are the 13 most important genres that make up Ethereal's history.
Following on from my previous feed, here's 13 recommendations for fragrances for Gothic gentlemen! But it should be noted that many of the perfumes on this list are designed to be unisex, so the ladies shouldn't be afraid to try some of these scents either. Moreover, of the more masculine scents also feature "darker" notes than typically female fragrances, such as patchouli, incense and myrrh.
The sales are still on, so now's a perfect time to pick up some cheap perfume! Below are my top 13 recommendations for Goths looking for a darkly feminine fragrance.
