I’m not entirely sure if we have the vampire craze to blame for this one of if it’s simply the fact that the perfume makers in Italy have run out of ideas. But despite the explanation, I’m sure there are loads of vampire fans that will be pleased with the latest range of perfumes to go on sale in Italy.
Unveiled this month at a perfumery trade show in Milan, a company called Blood Concept has launched a line of unisex blood-scented fragrances that offer customers a choice of A, B, AB and O.
According to Blood Concept’s website:
“Filled with legends and meanings, blood is soaked with mystery‚ fascination and respect. It’s the most tested and studied part of human body and it guards a multitude of secrets that reveals our inner and unique way of being.
BLOOD CONCEPT is a private celebration of the vivid and fascinating liquid that flows in our veins. Because blood is actually the river of life.”
If you’re curious whether or not the perfume actually smells like blood, well, apparently it does. It has that metallic blood scent mixed with other smells.
“A, B, AB and 0, retrace the evolution of manhood through time and its record of information, history and mutation, so well kept in the vital flushing of blood.
BLOOD CONCEPT is a mystic ritual with no flowers to be found: deep as primeval Africa in 0‚ aromatic as the scent of familiar land in A, bold as unpredictable itineraries in B, bold and sharp as a metropolitan skyline in AB.
Ending each time with the same subtle and mysterious note: a metallic vague suspicion.”
Ok, I think that I’ll stick to my pomegranate scented body spray, I’d rather not walk around smelling like blood… or primeval or skylines. What about you?
As to where you can buy this unique range of blood-scented perfumes, well, their website isn’t saying. So I am guessing it isn’t available to the public just yet.
