Blood Kiss

Blood Kiss

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.

    All I can say is…damn this is sexy. My boyfriend loves it too. It smells like dragonsblood on me after a few minutes and I adore it. Nice and sweet, yet sultry and sexy.

    I can mostly smell honey when it is in the bottle, but on my skin it smells like warmth. The vanilla and clove are the strongest, with the vetiver and musk underlying it. Absolutely amazing and warm scent.

    If I could I would give it 4.5 stars, mainly because I liked how it smelled before it aged, which was mainly cherry and creamy vanilla, with only the slightest spiciness from the clove. Now after it’s aged for a bit its more smoky, spicy and musky and far more masculine smelling to me. I did love how it used to smell when I first got it, oh well. It’s definitely not bad at all though.

    Like many others have said, it’s pretty harsh when you first smell it in the bottle. Sickeningly sweet cherries. If you wait it out however, it becomes incredibly lush and spicy. Last time I wore this to work, I had a coworker following me around and smelling me. If I didn’t know her, it would have been weird

    I love this scent! It’s very rich and complex. It lasts nearly all day, which is a HUGE plus in my book! at $17.50 a bottle, I feel like the scent should really last, and this one does. I’m not a fan of vanilla usually, but you barely notice it in this.

    The vanilla and cherry are rich, ripe, luxurious, and so edible without being overly sweet-like cherry pipe tobacco. The poppy isn’t overly floral, but is more like opium incense. The clove, vetiver, and musk heat it all up and it does pulse deeply…like a heart under a vampire’s kiss…(swoon!)

    This is the scent that just smells like my partner now-it’s been his holy grail since 2005. Mmmm…

    It’s a very strong musk like aroma. Normally, I don’t like heavy scent but this has become one I use most often. Don’t apply too much ’cause it might cause slight headache. Just a few dab here and there and let it dry. Believe me, you won’t regret it.

    Vanilla and cherry made sexy with the red wine, dark vetiver smoke, and spicy clove. A sexy, gothic cherry wine. Really lovely and long lasting.

    Of all the scents I ordered in my first ever BPAL order, this was my absolute favorite! It was sexy, bold without being overpowering, sweet and seductive simultaneously! It wore all day and without fading much, which I appreciated. The cherry really nicely complimented my natural scent and the vanilla gave it the extra oomph that made it so mouthwatering. Wearing it made me feel like I was irresistible! It may be a bit too sweet for some if you can’t wear fruity scents, but I did not find Blood Kiss cloying or saccharine at all, and I absolutely adored wearing it.

    I won’t lie-I choked when I sniffed this in the imp vial. Wretched at first.

    Wet on skin: Okay, not bad. Bit of a hyperactive cherry/clove lovechild.

    Dry on skin after five minutes: Ohhhh, yes. This is what I wished for. No single note slaps me in the face, and the overall effect is woodsy and sexy. It would make an excellent dressy scent for nighttime outings. It’s musky and unisex, and quite sensual.

    I ordered 6 Imps from BPAL; I’m a first-time purchaser.

    In the Imp: All I got was the red cherry smell. I took a gamble on this one because I don’t like syrupy cherry smells or maraschino cherries. If you like cherry, it’ll be fine though. The second sniff, I picked up more of the clove smell.

    On my skin, wet: Honestly it reminded me of Vick’s Vapo Rub.

    On my skin, dry: Much better in general, but I don’t really smell cherries anymore.

    Conclusion: I never really smelled the vanilla (which is my favorite scent) in this mixture. I don’t like it enough to buy a full size. It’s a rich, warm scent so others may like it just fine.

    Got this in an imp and it’s pretty amazing! I love it wet in the imp and it keeps that scent on me for about 2-3 hours. On me, it’s cherry and wine starting out and finishes after about 5 hours with straight up clove, which I still really enjoy. Not too overwhelming, I kept sniffing where I applied it. It’s yummy!

    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.

  15. Cherry_Faery

    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.

    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.

    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!
