COMMENTARY:While used as a poison in Brazil, Bloodflower’s key feature is its role in the transformation of the Monarch Caterpillar into the majestic Monarch Butterfly, so emphasis was placed on the fragrance transforming in front of one’s nose. Given the name, we wished to attain a haute-Goth experience by adding blood accord, but sweetening it up through the addition of black Sambuca, a dessert liquor; the result hints at the vampirish. The fragrance is also imbued with rose for dark romance and various spices for passion.
