We used Christmas candles to set the scene on the Friday night, to put the players in the Christmas mood.
Then we had several smells which we used for various scenes:
- For the Soldier ghost we used ‘Wartime Underground’, a smell of decaying earth and putrefying bodies.
- For the Burned Man we used ‘Burned Witch’, a smell of human flesh roasted in a fire.
- For Godfrey’s bedroom we used ‘Old Dentist’s Room’, a mix of medical-chemical smells.
- For the Green Lady we used a floral scent.
The three peculiar smells on that list came from a company called Dale Air in aerosol cans. Their catalogue is amazing – we highly recommend browsing through it.
