- The company's name is a reference to the Hallmark greeting card company, which has a gold crown as its trademark, and sells holiday and special-occasion merchandise at its Gold Crown stores (including perfume and cologne). Valentine's Day, the real-world holiday which Love is in the Air is based on, is said by some to be a "Hallmark Holiday", that is, an event made up in order to sell greeting cards.
- The description of their LFG event is as such: Defeat the insidious undead apothecaries of the Crown Chemical Co. before they unleash their newest, horrific plague.
The company's name and speeches may hint that they are or were once part of the Royal Apothecary Society, as it is implied that the Apothecary Trio sided with Putress during the Battle of Angrathar the Wrathgate.
