Elden Ring: How to Complete Perfumer's Grotto
On this page, we're going to reveal how to complete Perfumer's Grotto. We'll include the location, a walkthrough, and any additional information, like item drops.
Perfumer's Grotto Location: How to Find It
The entrance to Perfumer’s Grotto is cleverly concealed along the northern side of the primary stairway leading to the Capital Outskirts. Start at Altus Highway Junction and follow the road that veers northward beside the ornate stairs. Dodge the few bears until you find a giant poison flower rooted directly in front of this cave’s entrance.
Perfumer's Grotto: Walkthrough
Perfumer’s Grotto begins with a long descent downwards through a tunnel that contains some Budding Cave Moss. Continue following it until it finally terminates at a chamber that’s full of perfumer enemies and a giant poison flower. Skirt around the right wall to reach a perfumer standing on a ledge with its back turned, leaving it wide open for a backstab. Take this one out first as it’s the easiest target, and drop off the ledge to handle any perfumers that attack you thereafter.
The eastern wall of this cave contains some Crystal Cave Moss you can grab once the coast is clear. Now that we’ve taken out the first few perfumers, our next target is the giant poison flower and the perfumer next to it. The perfumer should be your first priority so that its dangerous perfume attacks won’t be a bother while you cut down the giant flower. Once you’ve dealt with them both, some Silver Fireflies and Living Jar Shards can be looted from the water pool where they stood.
With that first section taken care of, advance onward by taking the passageway towards the north that leads out to another giant poison flower. This one also has backup in the form of a perfumer and a couple smaller poison flowers which, as before, should be dealt with first. After they’ve all been dispatched, circle around the tree roots in this area to find a little alcove that contains two treasure chests and a bunch more Budding Cave Moss. Open those chests to get more Living Jar Shards and a valuable Perfume Bottle.
Continue forward by descending the northern passage and exit out to a large chamber where you’ll reach this cave’s final stretch. While the path forward is along the branches to the left, there’s a Malformed Star enemy hanging from the ceiling just itching to sling salvos of gravity projectiles at you. The last leg of this cave is made slightly easier if you have any means of ranged battle as it’ll enable you to eliminate the thing altogether. It’s not the end of the world if you don’t though, you’ll just have to be incredibly careful of those projectiles and make use of the best shield you’ve got to buff through the salvos.
Balance along the branch and grab the Arteria Leaves from the corpse before continuing onto the other side and entering the chamber with the large mist gate. It isn’t completely safe here though – keep your eyes peeled for the two poison flowers that roam around this area. After taking them out, there are a few final items to add to your inventory: Miranda Powder, a Warming Stone, and a couple Golden Runes . After grabbing all of it, all that’s left is to traverse the mist gate and face the Omenkiller and Miranda Blighted Bloom.
