SCP-793
rating: 0+x

Item #: SCP-793

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-793 is to be kept in a felt-lined box. This box is to be contained in a locker known only by the project head and by the site overseer. Both may access the locker via combination lock. No other individual may access the locker. All samples for testing must be taken with the project head present.

Description: SCP-793 is 126 ml thin red liquid of low opacity. (Originally 250 ml) It is stored in its original clear glass bottle. This bottle is clearly labeled “Love Philter”, in bold hand print. The liquid is administered via the bottle’s atomizer. 1 spray equals approximately 2 ml of liquid. 1 spray is sufficient to trigger the SCP’s effect.

When the SCP is applied as a perfume, the scent is reminiscent of lilac. It appears to have no adverse effect on the user. It in truth has a very powerful and detrimental effect on members of the opposite sex who the user finds attractive. The first such individual to smell it, finds him or herself overwhelmingly attracted to the user of perfume. However, these individuals also find themselves unable to directly act upon such feelings. The attraction builds, often triggering a multitude of irregular behavior in the subject. However the individual can not tell the SCP’s user how he or she feels.

793 was found in an apartment owned by █████ ███████. (Hereafter recorded as 793-1) 793-1 had locked himself in his apartment and called police, due to his belief that his next door neighbor was plotting an attempt on his life. He reported seeing numerous pictures of himself affixed to a wall in the woman’s apartment. Foundation agents became involved when multiple police reports were filed involving the young man.

Police investigation of the next door neighbor’s apartment uncovered a small shrine dedicated to 793-1. No fewer than 3 women committed suicide, leaving love notes to 793-1. In addition, clerks at a local grocery store were fired after obsessively talking about 793-1 while working. None of these women had spoken to 793-1 in any manner that would indicate interest. However their obsession was easily noticeable by individuals other than 793-1.

Amnesiac drugs and therapies prove useless in ending this obsession. As such, all the involved women were terminated to prevent complications. Foundation plants within the FBI declared 793-1 to be the leader of a cult, in which these women were members. The official reports state that he killed the women in a ritual ending in his own death. Foundation counselors were used to convince the surviving families of the cover story.

Addendum: When questioned on the subject of the SCP’s origin, 793-1 claimed it was given to him by a tribal doctor in the Brazilian rain forest. He professes to have met this tribal doctor during a humanitarian pilgrimage to the region. All investigations of the area surrounding the coordinates given have proven to be dead ends. Further searches have been commissioned at a reduced budget. As 793-1 has no surviving relatives, and has shown a willingness to cooperate, he will be placed on a team for investigation and location of the SCP’s true origin. He is designated as D-Class. Instead of standard equipment for the mission, he will receive a tracking/termination bracelet.

Addendum: Attempts to isolate the active ingredient to this perfume have so far failed. R&D assures me that they are close to a breakthrough. I can only assume that this interest in duplicating the SCP is indicative of command’s wish to weaponize it. While 793 is harmless to the user, its properties are still unreliable as a weapon. Please consider this before allocating too much of the budget on further development. -Dr. Rei – 05-02-2009

Addendum: SCP-793 is under review for possible weapon use. If the source can be located, then the perfume can be administered by field agents during acts of espionage and character assassination. Remember who funds your research before making further comments. – General ██████ - 05-09-2009

Addendum: Further testing is on hold until the source can be located. We can not afford to have any more of the SCP wasted in testing. Dr. Rei is hereby removed from this project pending investigation of allegations involving the waste of Foundation resources. – Site Administrator █████ - 05-10-2009
