BLOOD Concept A EDP Perfume Review

BLOOD Concept A perfume

BLOOD Concept is a concept perfume line out of Italy. Yes, it’s based on blood types. Eventually, I’ll get to reviewing all of the “perfumes” in this line. I’m going to spoil my opinion for you with my first review. I’m terrible at being suspenseful.

My first response to A on me skin was a loud “ewwwe” of disgust that caused The Smooshed Face League, my dogs, to jump. I startled the frugs. Concept smells like Bonne Bell Lip Smackers Watermelon Lip Balm and Bubblicious Bubble Gum. Add grass stains. How I want to scrub away the tweenagers! But, I endure. I endure for you. The bubblegum/lip balm intensifies with a hint of coconut oil. This is all over a very unpleasant grassiness, a hexenal or something like that. And this is all with iron shavings.

 Bonne Bell Lip Smacker

I have no clue why Concept A wears so bubble gum on me, but it does. Like many fumeheads, I love the smell of tomato leaves. I expected to like this fragrance. Add this scent to my long list of disappointments.

Notes listed include green garden accord, tomato leaves, basil, star anise and metallic notes.

I really don’t know who to recommend this fragrance to. I don’t like it. I don’t recommend it to anyone. I hear that it does wear fresh and green on some people. Try it if you dare. My favorite perfume with tomato leaves and fresh greens is Sisley Eau de Campagne. And I’m sticking to that one because it’s the best 😉 And if you are looking for tomato leaves and greens, try Ellena’s creation for Sisley.

A 2 oz. spray retails for $155 at Luckyscent. Samples are also available if you wish to startle your pets with your sounds of disgust.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONBonne Bell Lip Smackers, Bubblicious Bubble Gum, grass stains. Oh, does that sound charming? Because it isn’t. And you guys better love me because I tested this 5 times. Each wear was more horrible than the wear before. *And do not get me started on the retail price of this synthetic mess.

  1. I just couldn’t get past that evil metallic note, in the whole line. A and AB were the worst, O was the least offensive. Fortunately I found someone to give my samples to, who actually seemed to like them.

    1. I agree. A and AB are the worst = terrible. O was the one that I could handle and I can see somebody that likes certain CdG liking O.
      I’d feel bad passing this evil to somebody else 😉 But, I’m sure somebody out there would/could enjoy it.

  2. I really like B. I was pleasantly suprised, it had a fruity sweet smokiness which I liked. I was expecting a coppery blood smell from the metallic note like in Secretions Magnifique or BPAL Goreshock (a good substitute for ipecac btw). The metallic notes in B just gave the entire composition a bright tang. Too bad B lasts only 5 seconds on me. Poor longevity for $155? Not worth it.

    1. I need to spend more time with B. My final opinions of the other 3 have been made. I think the problem with my forming an immediate opinion with B was that it vanished so quickly!
      I’d never pay $155 for something that doesn’t last on my skin. That may just be me. I can find many other perfumes that I want and love for less than that price.

    1. I test everything a min. of 5 times before publishing. I thought maybe this one would get better. Um, no.
      Real tomato leaves smell wonderful! I hope you get to smell them one day. If not, Demeter makes a fun novelty scent, Tomato Leaves, that is very realistic 🙂

  3. As someone who works in a hospital, I don’t understand this concept. I do love you for testing it five times!!

    1. Seriously. Isn’t this concept well, um, gross? Especially from a medical perspective. Do you think it’s for vampire fans?
      Well, I try the nasty stuff so you don’t have to! lol

  4. I heard that the best fragrance in this line for someone is the one that matches their blood type. I don’t know my blood type and hate metallic notes, so I’m not bothering with this.

    1. There are plenty of things out there I’m sure you’d rather be trying.
      The one that matches my blood type wore terribly on me. Or it’s completely possible I forgot what my blood type is, lol.

  5. I think this Blood perfumes are just another gimmicky brand who spend more time into the marketing and creative process in order to be different instead of focusing on what is inside… (Maybe I just to classic LOL)
