Restores living things from petrification

The Fragrant Branch of Yore is a miscellaneous item in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A fragrant tree branch with a faint sweet smell. Restores the life of things turned to stone.
Extended inhalation of the branch's scent can lead to coughing and nausea.


The Fragrant Branch of Yore is a rare item that reverses petrification. When an enemy is unpetrified, they will become hostile, while humans will become merchants.

Unused Fragrant Branches of Yore are lost upon entering NG+.


A total of eight can be found in the main game:


  • Majula - Rosabeth of Melfia can be freed in order to progress to Shaded Woods.
  • The Lost Bastille - Straid of Olaphis blocks a bonfire upstairs, across the bridge from Sinner's Rise.
  • Shaded Woods - Three Lion Warriors can be freed in Shaded Woods:
    • One is located by the one-way tree bridge, to the right of the Shaded Ruins bonfire, and holds the Fang Key.
    • One can be found blocking access to a chest with a Fragrant Branch of Yore and the Lion Mage Set. However, it is possible to jump a low spot in the wall and get to the chest without having to use a Fragrant Branch of Yore.
    • One can be found blocking the path towards a Black Knight Halberd, and a Basilisk next to a Soul of a Brave Warrior and a Twilight Herb. This statue can also be bypassed, by jumping from one of the openings on the left side of the bridge, just past the base of the ramp covering the Shaded Ruins bonfire.
  • Aldia's Keep - A petrified Ogre blocks a path and drops a Dragon Acolyte Mask when freed. It is not necessary to use a fragrant branch here, as players can choose to take the staircase to the left, facing the petrified Ogre, and obtain the mask from a Dragon Acolyte.
