The Blood Garden

Recommended Posts

Blood accord, bitter clove, English ivy, Tempranillo grape, red currant, oak, leather, blackberry leaf, and ginger lily.


Spicy bloody to start! I do get the mature fruit, maybe a little rose — some kind of flower is there.

The Blood Garden is super grapey at first, drying down into a grapey spicy wine-incense.

In the bottle, I can smell grapes with something darker curled beneath. On me, the grape is significantly reduced, I get mostly a smoky floral. I have a very hard time picking out individual notes, this is so well-blended. Slightly fruity, smoky, incensey. Beautiful.

This is one of my favorite BPALs.

 

A real dialogue between me and the husband:

 

Me: "This perfume is called The Blood Garden."

Spouse: "Eeeeuuughghh. You smell like you murdered someone in a flower garden."

Me: "I love it."

Upon seeing the bright red colour in the vile something in me had to try this first of the batch I got.

My first impression is sweet, dark, lush. And ofcourse, blood; something similar to the metal note in the magician, but much subtler. Quite beautiful!

I can't really tell the plant notes apart, but it's definately green. I'm also getting something like... fig? Maybe it's the currant. A couple of minutes in this is almost candy-sweet on me.

In it's dry state it's become very dusty on me, and a lot of it has faded. Shame, cause I really enjoyed this! It's still nice, but it's become very 'warm' and too dusty for me to wear daily.
