Scent Name: Bloodlust
Manufacturer: Alchemic Muse
Scent Description and Notes: “A penetrating, sanguine scent flowing with sensuality. Dragon’s blood resin, heady incense, and iron distilled patchouli saturated with blood orange and thickened with amber and myrrh.
Oil Color: I cannot tell since the imp bottle is amber in color, although the oil has a slightly copper tone on my skin.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). The label is printed on a nice quality sticker paper that has an aged blue color and what is supposed to mimic aged, slightly burned pages around the edge. The Label features the name of the company in stylized script at the top, underneath which is the designation of products made. Below that is a Baroque mantle piece of art that frames the name of the scent, which is in bold Gothic stylized font. Below that is the phrase “perfume oil sample” in lighter and smaller font.
- ITI: Pleasant. The dragon’s blood resin is sweeter, as if mixed with hibiscus and tampered down by the orange and myrrh. The resin is soft and sweet just under the dragon’s blood and orange.
- Wet: The orange is sweeter and more pronounced once the scent chances upon skin, but the overall sweet and pleasant mix of resins, incense, light floral and myrrh remain the same.
- Dry: Patchouli emerges as the scent dries, overpowering the subtle floral of the dragon’s blood and the sweet tones of orange. Instead, I’m left with a dry patchouli, mild but slightly acidic orange, some incense, and the faintest hint of myrrh. It’s okay, but I loved it so when still wet.
Other Impressions: None.
