Perfume makes a character temporarily smell like something for four hours. Usually people strive to smell good, but in GemStone this is not always the case. Perfume is always available on Mist Harbor in The Crystal Lotus and at Solhaven in Mistsheen Annex. It is often sold at festivals and pay events. Standard perfumes come with ten uses, but merchants might sell them with more. Perfumes can be permified.

Custom perfume is sometimes offered as a delayed service prize and are bottomless.

ANALYZE the perfume to get the first and third person scent messaging without wearing it first.

Perfume Holders

>analyze lily
You analyze your glass lily and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions.

The creator has also provided the following information:

The glass lily is a piece of perfume-holding jewelry that currently holds the scent of night jasmine, bergamot, and spring rain.  It may be altered with a long or a show, but must remain a piece of jewelry.  The stoppered crystal vial will always remain on the piece.

You get no sense of whether or not the lily may be further lightened.
