A subtle tang (like the taste of blood) lies at the core of this fragrance. Bloodflower’s success lies in an extraordinary alchemical feat, in which a maudlin gourmandism is transformed into the more acceptable genre of fascinating florals. Liquorice and anise are subtle sweeteners at the top of this fragrance, building a translucent, milky roundness that continuously softens the sharper edges of notes yet to come. Blood accord is everything that we’ve experienced of it before; saline, sharp and rich, this note (and the aversion-attraction divide it straddles) is effectively simplified--but not silenced--by the unlikely combination of dulcet green clover and ruby-red rose. A fast forwarded vision of a battlefield, clover grows out of and absorbs blood, regenerating it’s salty intensity into a soft, verdant smoothness. Rose reconnoiters the sourness of blood into a bittersweet red berry effect that’s so appetizing it makes our mouths water. Orris is earthy, dense and gracefully invisible, a soil-like substance busily metabolizing the red of this formerly tumultuous terrain. Amber and patchouli ground this scent, both echoing the savory strength of the core note, while complimenting the assuaging, sweeter contours of the whole. A scent that conceals, even as it boldly reveals, Bloodflower is an elegant thrill that haunts skin. A human stain.

Perfumer: Alexandra Carlin

Look at my blood flowers
Because I write with a
Serene sharp blade that
Soothes as much as cuts
Into the deepest parts
Of my soul
