Bogeyman Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden answers the curious questions “What does the Bogeyman smell like?”  Definitive research into monster aromas and startling scents did not leave us many answers.  The Bogeyman exists in almost every culture.  Some notable examples are Sack Man in many Latin countries, El Coco in Spain and Central America, Babau in the eastern mediterranean, and Butzemann in many Germanic countries.  Despite his widespread existence, our team of monster researchers was not able to pin down an exact scent.  Since he tends to hide his appearance, we assume he’s not a good looking fellow (see the referenced photo?) and that his scent is to match.  Bogeyman Fragrance Oil is a Nature’s Garden Original Fragrance designed by our mythological scenting team to make the Bogeyman smell better.  If you are the Bogeyman, or you would just like a warm, spicy scent, then look no further: Bogeyman Fragrance Oil is for you!
