The Sea Foams Blood

Recommended Posts

Blood rising through an ocean wave.

 

In the imp: I do get the blood (I get a sharp metallic note and a little spice), but the soapy aquatic note is by far the most prominent aspect of the scent in the imp. Aquatics are often soapy on me, so I do not have high hopes for this one.

 

Wet: This is SUPER SOAP on me. And now that I’ve written that, I can’t help but envisioning a bar of soap in a red cape, thinking it has come to save the day, when really, it is ruining it. Behind the mountain of soap suds, I detect the blood, which is not making me think of dragon’s blood at the moment (dragon’s blood can be wonky on me and often stomps on other notes), but maybe that’s because I have wandered into the SOAP KINGDOM.

 

Dry: The blood note, which reads as incense-y to me (and may be the one found in Mithras) has come out more and seems to be getting stronger over time, but there’s still some aquatic soapiness in the background. There is a floral aspect to the scent, but if there’s dragon’s blood in here, it’s not being problematic like it usually is on me.

 

Verdict: As far as blood notes go, this one is okay -- but the aquatic note is far too soapy on me.

First Sniff: White aster, light, clean and like really fresh linen.

 

Initial Wet Application: This is light and clean and fresh. It’s lovely, but it’s going to fade away.

 

Dry Down (first 15 minutes): I’m not sure this is even going to make it through the full dry down time; it’s basically nothing already! Nope, 15 minutes in and there’s really nothing there any more.

 

My Reaction: The first sniff was lovely; freshly laundered white linen snapping in a breeze. But it was just too light to last.

I have been using this oil for the past 3 months and i was trying to figure out what does it remind me of. It's in the same family as The Deep Ones, but with a more sandy texture. I associate this blend with crushed seashells and salty ocean water washing over the seashore sand.

Surprising. On notes alone I would never have tried it. It's floral and the aquatic dominates, but theres a sweetness underneath. Its feminine and summery.

On me the lab's dragon's blood resin often has a lilac like scent. For the first half hour I enjoy the mix of dragon's blood with a gentle aquatic. After that it is the gorgeous aquatic warmed with a little dragon's blood.

 

This particular aquatic note is less cologne-y on me than Kumari Kandam (which I do enjoy sometimes). It has a frothy, delicate tone. I love this.

Seas with blood soaked foam give good news to some, mournful news to others. 

 

Freshly on, a burst of aquatic and sweet-like floral notes. It is a pleasant and wafting fragrance that carries with me every moment it is on my flesh. 

 

Couple hours later, the sweeter notes start to subside for a more pleasant salty allure where the florals notes are toned down a lot and gives way to what must be a comforting dragon’s blood resin. 

 

I do not often wear aquatic scents but this one is very enjoyable. It has a short to medium throw but manages to last several wonderful hours. While I may not wear it frequently, I do very much enjoy it. Glad I got this as an imp.
