Dios mio, such histrionics with this one! That's OK though, such perceptions act like a beacon-call to those who appreciate the yin yang of a good animalic.
Unique and undoubtedly sitting out there on the fringe, Bull's Blood provides an interesting smell of a dry, dusty, deep floral alongside a musky patchouli mix wrought with enough skatoles and/or other indoles to make the uninitiated cry for mommy. Seriously... for those who have ever 'scrubbed off' a fragrance, do yourselves a favor and just pass this one up.
What provides the attraction? Rose? Spanish rose? Sure, why not.
What provides the repulsion? Costus root? Black Musk? Tobacco? Patchouli? Actual blood from a bull? Don't know, but costus root essential oil purportedly has a wet dog, animal fur smell to it and it does seem to be rarely used in modern perfumery. Works for me.
Overall these actors push/pull to a pleasant, slightly metallic effect. It's a serious scent. Clowns would not smell of it, nor would a guy in cargo shorts and a tee. Spray just enough for yourself and those you want in your personal bubble, else others may think it rude, take offense, and push for more laws.
If a lady were to wear Bull's Blood, I'd imagine the dark eyes and dark hair of an Angelina Jolie type character in, let's say, Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
As for gents: Soon after Michael Corleone is hit by 'The Thunderbolt' he calmly and persuasively clears up any misunderstandings with his future father-in-law. He had to be serious, he had to set the tone, he had to take the bull by the horns if he were stand even the slightest chance with Apollonia. He smelled of Bull's Blood, or at least I thought I glimpsed as much in the credits.
If you don't get that last reference, you're too young and probably should take a pass. If you use cologne as a compliment lure you should take a pass as well. Hell, I'll go so far as to say that unless you know what you like and you like animalic compositions like Mazzolari Lui, Laura Tonatto's Re (unavailable now, I believe), Muscs Koubai Khan, Untitled #8, etc., you'll likely not find what you're looking for in Bull's Blood. It's eclectic.
Thanks for this one Josh! The Imaginary Authors backstory is witty and matches the scent well. Speaking as a guy with hundreds of bottles in collection, I really wish more houses would push the envelope. It would do well to keep my interest.
