Champagne and Blood

Recommended Posts

Sanguine sensuality with a pop: dragon’s blood resin, Egyptian myrrh, black cherry, clove, and champagne.

The champagne smells more clean and fizzy than usual, and not as sweet as usual.  It makes me think of dropping a LUSH bath bomb into water, picking it up as it's fizzing and dissolving, and going to smell it and getting the fizz up my nose.  A cold, sharp, clean fizz that's not unpleasant and is sort of spa-like.  I do not drink alcohol, though, so maybe that's why my brain is going to bath bombs and not champagne.

Champagne & Blood starts off with a burst of sweet maraschino cherry, but quickly dries down to a wonderful fragrance where I can smell all of the listed notes.  The cherry, dragon's blood, and cola-like myrrh all meld together to smell like a resinous, sweet cherry cola dropped into the clean fizziness, with wafts of a powdery, warm perfume that smells like powdered amber incense (not baby powdery at all) and spicy, dry clove.  It smells like a relative to Blood Kiss, like Blood Kiss's incredibly attractive and confident mom who can pull off wearing a crisp suit and is someone who knows the importance of meditating and taking care of herself every day.

I might have to rethink my stance on not liking bpal's champagne perfumes.  I'm really enjoying this one.

Swoon-a-roonies, this is great! If you ordered a decant it will probably be obvious that you want to roll/shake/otherwise gently agitate this oil, but even in the bottle you can see a distinct separation of components:

There is definitely something magically cola-like happening, without being sticky or cloying. I love the contrast of the cool fizz of champagne with the warmth of dragon's blood and clove, accented by a flirtation of delicious cherry. But the sparkling champagne note is the star, and it lasts all day. A delight!
