Blood Kiss

4.33 out of 5

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.

  1. 2 out of 5


    In the imp: I’m mostly getting the wine, poppies, cherries, followed by the clove.

    Wet: The clove is the most prominent note on my skin, followed by the cherry note. The honeyed vanilla note begins to emerge after a few minutes. I was afraid of the vetiver note, but it is just helping to add a smokiness to the scent, along with the clove note. The poppy and wine are becoming more prominent on the drydown.

    Dry: Still clove and cherry dominant. The spot where I applied this to my arm is very warm, but it does not burn. The wine and poppy notes are pretty strong as well. The honeyed vanilla note resides in the background.

    Much later: There’s a fair amount of vetiver present now, along with the wine note. After a few hours, the vetiver note becomes very strong, overtaking what remains of the other notes.

    Verdict: I’m conflicted with this scent. I love the clove note. The cherry note hasn’t turned to cough syrup on me. This is far more pleasant than I thought it would be, and I really think the scent fits its name. But the wine note makes this a little too fruity-sweet for me, and the vetiver ends up being too strong for me after it has been on my skin for a few hours. So I guess I won’t be wearing this one again.

    This came as a frimp March 2015–and it was a wonderful surprise! It’s warm, soft, woodsy. The cherry is unique and beautiful, not at all cloying. It has a low throw, making it perfect for seductive wear.

    I can’t stop smelling my hand, honestly. This may be a new Top 5.

    This has the distinction of being the first BPAL scent that I have had the chance to wear and honestly, it exceeded my expectations. In the bottle, it is a little deceptive and the sweetness of the scent was the first thing to hit me. When I put it on, it quickly evolved and though the cherry and vanilla were there first, the musk and clove were very fast to come through. It’s beautiful on me and I love the way it evolves on my skin.

    Don’t be put off by the smell when this one is wet. Let it dry and I’m sure you’ll be happy with it.

    The honey is strong when this dries, but it’s kept from being too sweet by the cloves, musk and other heady scents.

    (verified owner) – :

    purchase: imp
    in the bottle: amber liquid with heavy vetiver
    wet: vetiver, musk
    drydown: vanilla, clove, wine and all the rest mix into a alluring scent

    This is a fantastic scent that morphs into a spicy sensual pulse that stays very close and intimate to the skin. This is a scent to wear for those one wishes to come closer to catch the warm spice emanating from your skin. It is sexy, seductive and subtle.

  6. 5 out of 5

    (verified owner) – :

    I really dislike how this smells in the bottle – very strong, sharp woodsy/balsam notes. I think this is the vetiver. I almost regretted buying a whole bottle when I first opened it. After a few minutes on, the vetiver dries down a bit and the honey comes out strong. It quickly evolves into a more complex blend of lush juiciness, ever so slightly sweet, warm vanilla and honey, with a sinister spicy background. It’s incredibly sexy. I’m extremely glad I gambled on a whole bottle – I think this will become my favorite BPAL I own!

  • Brown Jenkin

    4.00 out of 5

    The yellowed country records containing her testimony and that of her accusers were so damnably suggestive of things beyond human experience – and the descriptions of the darting little furry object which served as her familiar were so painfully realistic despite their incredible details.

    That object – no larger than a good-sized rat and quaintly called by the townspeople “Brown Jenkin – seemed to have been the fruit of a remarkable case of sympathetic herd-delusion, for in 1692 no less than eleven persons had testified to glimpsing it. There were recent rumours, too, with a baffling and disconcerting amount of agreement. Witnesses said it had long hair and the shape of a rat, but that its sharp-toothed, bearded face was evilly human while its paws were like tiny human hands. It took messages betwixt old Keziah and the devil, and was nursed on the witch's blood, which it sucked like a vampire. Its voice was a kind of loathsome titter, and it could speak all languages. Of all the bizarre monstrosities in Gilman's dreams, nothing filled him with greater panic and nausea than this blasphemous and diminutive hybrid, whose image flitted across his vision in a form a thousandfold more hateful than anything his waking mind had deduced from the ancient records and the modern whispers.

    A small, furry, sharp-toothed scent that will nuzzle you curiously in the black hours before dawn: dusty white sandalwood and orris root, dry coconut husk, creeping musk, and the residue of ceremonial incense.

    A venerable New England university, whose vast library holds many rare, diabolical and obscure arcane works, including one of the few surviving legitimate copies of the Necronomicon. Home to innumerable scholars of the esoteric and the occult, and the notorious Dr. Herbert West.

    The scent of Irish coffee, dusty tomes and polished oakwood halls.

    It was a terrible, indescribable thing vaster than any subway train – a shapeless congerie of protoplasmic bubbles, faintly self-luminous, and with myriads of temporary eyes forming and un-forming as pustules of greenish light all over the tunnel-filling front that bore down upon us, crushing the frantic penguins and slithering over the glistening floor that it and its kind had swept so evilly free of all litter.

    An amorphous, radiant, incandescent scent. Ever changing, protoplasmic and primordial: white amber, green coconut meat, iris, palmarosa, Chinese peony, lime, water lily, snowdrop, muguet, lemongrass, osmanthus, wisteria, glassy musk, and hinoki.

  • Ave Maria Gratia Plena

    2.50 out of 5

    Was this His coming! I had hoped to see
    A scene of wondrous glory, as was told
    Of some great God who in a rain of gold
    Broke open bars and fell on Danae:
    Or a dread vision as when Semele
    Sickening for love and unappeased desire
    Prayed to see God's clear body, and the fire
    Caught her brown limbs and slew her utterly:
    With such glad dreams I sought this holy place,
    And now with wondering eyes and heart I stand
    Before this supreme mystery of Love:
    Some kneeling girl with passionless pale face,
    An angel with a lily in his hand,
    And over both the white wings of a Dove.

    A pale, delicate, truly angelic blend. A scent created to emulate Adonis' halo of beauty: fragile, distant, and radiant. Rosewood with Sicilian lemon peel, red Mysore sandalwood, pale musks, sweet mountain sage and a dusting of lily, night-blooming jasmine and orris.

    The Seventh Daughter, Daughter of the Oath. She was King David’s lover, and the mother of King Solomon. Her scent is breathtakingly lovely, exotic and powerfully sensual in its innocence: carnation, sensual plum, and Arabian musk.

  • Bien Loin D’Ici

    This is the house, the sacred box,
    Where, always draped in languorous frocks,
    And always at home if someone knocks,

    One elbow into the pillow pressed,
    She lies, and lazily fans her breast,
    While fountains weep their soulfullest:

    This is the chamber of Dorothy.
    Fountain and breeze for her alone
    Sob in that soothing undertone.
    Was ever so spoiled a harlot known?

    With odorous oils and rosemary,
    Benzoin and every unguent grown,
    Her skin is rubbed most delicately.
    The flowers are faint with ecstasy.

    The Scarlet Woman, aglow with sensual indolence: red musk, benzoin, caramel accord, golden honey, and spiced Moroccan unguents.

  • The Lady of Shalott

    3.50 out of 5

    Heard a carol, mournful, holy,
    Chanted loudly, chanted lowly,
    Till her blood was frozen slowly,
    And her eyes were darkened wholly,
    Turn’d to tower’d Camelot.
    For ere she reach'd upon the tide
    The first house by the water-side,
    Singing in her song she died,
    The Lady of Shalott.

    The scent of calm waters just before a raging storm, limned with achingly-beautiful blooms, an icy scent, but somehow warm, and mirror-bright: bold gardenia, crystalline musk, muguet, water blossoms, clear, slightly tart aquatic notes and a crush of white ginger.
