Bobbing for Blood Kisses

Recommended Posts

leaming red apples sloshing through lush, creamy vanilla and the honey of the sweetest kiss smeared with the vital throb of husky clove, swollen red cherries, but darkened with the vampiric sensuality of vetiver, soporific poppy and blood red wine, and a skin-light pulse of feral musk.

Very fresh, crisp red apples with some of the Blood Kiss spice in the background. Actually a bit more apple-forward than I thought, but I like it! Bright and long lasting.

Blood Kisses was the biggest surprise of the three Bobbings I've tried so far. The apple it presents gleams almost like a red patent leather, it's so shiny (but not plasticky! A true slick patent!) A coppery twang like Bard glimmers from its depths, a note I always associate with clove and saffron even though I'm not sure that IS what it truly is. The vetiver is silvery too, metallic, serpentine and slithery through its grassy bed. Combined with the spicy red musk that's prominent in this Bobbing, it's hypnotic. Oh, fans of Vetiver Patchouli Apple Peel trio and Scherezade will LOVE this. Maybe Bright Red Dildo too, although I am not personally a BRD fan myself, but this is what I wanted the red patent leather to smell like.

 

I actually love Bobbing for Blood Kisses more than I knew I would. I hope the vetiver continues to bloom and bloom in its snake-charmer red musk dance. The apple seems to tone down the cherry I get from Blood Kiss, to the point where I just smell dark red fruit, and no almond whatsoever. (I also don't get specifically wine or booze, but it's somewhere between the juiciness of juice and the dryness of an alcoholic beverage. Very smooth and rich.) BfBK is one of the creamiest of the bobbings, and one of the most complex I would guess. Like the apple doesn't completely take over the whole show, and I could even picture someone who's not a big apple fan digging the twists and turns of the spices and vetiver and musks here.

 

This beauty has a low-to-moderate throw, but I keep catching whiffs of it when I move around. The vetiver doing its magic 💥 I'm hoping it continues to age even stronger so I can surround myself in a CLOUD of it all. I'm so happy with how this turned out!

 

I would wear this while: adorning my person in a vampiric red dress.

I mean, yes. Well, now. This is very much as described in its notes!

 

The apples are red and do indeed gleam, the whole fragrance is lush --- just a bit creamy and a little more honeyed --- with extra red from cherries, poppies, and wine, and a positively vampiric dose of musk. Clove and vetiver are more blended in, but clear enough once I read them listed. The vetiver, or something, is also a touch grassy and smoky, to the degree of reminding me of Endless Corridors, with its beeswax, candle smoke and vetiver. I definitely notice the vetiver more and more as this dries.

 

This is sheer, unapologetic (bitch, please) vampire glam.

This was mostly red apple dominant and added more sweetness to the point of making the scent candy-like. 

 

Much too sweet and too much apple for me.

I'm not a big fan of apple scents, but I love Blood Kiss.  Unfortunately, I don't smell anything reminiscent of Blood Kiss from this.  It's all apple and, to me, an impression of a yellow apple that leans sour and tart rather than sweet and juicy.  I don't like it very much.  It feels very simple and punchy.
