Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.

Blood musk and ashes.

This is unusual. It is a very subtle blood musk. But not a lot of ash. More like warmth, burning paper before it completely snuffs out. Ash smells smoky, this doesn't. It's so subtle and beautiful. Letting it settle helped a bit. So now I am going to keep this bottle. I have a feeling that this will just get better with time!

Beautiful. First sniff brought strong vibes of Halloween. More sniffs made me think there is something that I have in the Carnival Diabolique collection that this reminds me of. The blood musk is strong, with (to my nose) a sweet incense quality to the ashes, along the lines of Midnight Mass.

Blood musk, and smoke.

 

If you've read the Wheel of Time, you've heard the curse "Blood and Ashes!" and this is what it'd smell like.

 

It lasts, and lasts.

 

The blood musk almost has the smut note to it, if you've never smelled it, but not quite. It's deeper, more primal. Gorgeous. The incensey smoke and ashes are gentle, giving it a lovely depth that is fantastic.

 

Gender neutral, but it smells fantastic on Nate. His coworker got a whiff of him the next day (another dide) and told him how good he smelled. So he explained Bpal. :XD

I can't usually wear red musk, but I've had some success with blood musk. Blood musk is more apt to share the stage with other notes, which is especially crucial when there are only two notes. And the blood musk and ashes are in perfect balance here. Ezekiel 16:49 is a very somber scent, and utterly unisex; for the first couple of hours I get no sweetness at all, then it starts to soften a bit, but it is still dark. Gray ash, coppery blood -- this really isn't like any other scent I can think of, and it's beautiful. Not much throw on me (typical) but good wear length.

Wet: Well. I think my nose is broken. This is smelling like musky cedar? Is there cedar in here? :peep:

 

Dry: Yep. I don't know why, but there's something in here that's reading as cedar to my nose. Since cedar is one of my least favorite notes, ever, this just isn't working for me.

Blood musk, deep and tangy, and smoky ashes. This smells like it would be a great Halloween cosplay or Vampire cosplay scent. Or actually, also a werewolf. Creepy, beautiful, and bloody.

Medium throw and wear length.

Oof! A sort of red fruity-floral-metallic musk. With a side of ashy smoke.

 

Yup. Pretty much that. A musk with red fruits and flowers and coppery metal is how I experience "blood musk."

 

 

This went muted on me quickly, which is OK. Fun to test, but not my thing. :P

I like smoky scents.  I like red musk and all its cousins.  That's said, I don't like Ezekiel 16:49.  The strongest note I get is one I associate with a tobacco note I don't care for.   (I like most tobacco notes.)  Maybe it's actually an ash note?  Anywho, this smells like Hearth and Snaky Hair'd Moirai, so if you like those, give this a whirl.  The blood musk is there, ala Bloodlust,  but it's behind the ill favored tobacco.  Not for me.
