Tis the season for Blood Concept.

Do you like the smell of blood? Maybe you do and you just don’t know it. Blood Concept is a new line of fragrance based on blood type. Given that it is nearly Halloween (and everyone has vampire fever anyway), we thought it a fitting time to introduce the line here at Siren. Hailing out of Italy, Blood Concept plays on the primal draw to blood, and the idea that your blood type may dictate more than just a suitable transfusion. Of course you don’t have to choose the one that matches your blood type – you may be a quirky exception to your blood type rule, after all. Here is what the company says about their line:

Filled with legends and meanings, blood is soaked with mystery‚ fascination and respect. It’s the most tested and studied part of human body and it guards a multitude of secrets that reveals our inner and unique way of being. BLOOD CONCEPT is a private celebration of the vivid and fascinating liquid that flows in our veins. Because blood is actually the river of life. A, B, AB and O, retrace the evolution of humankind through time and its record of information, history and mutation, so well kept in the vital flushing of blood. BLOOD CONCEPT is a mystic ritual with no flowers to be found: deep as primeval Africa in O‚ aromatic as the scent of familiar land in A, bold as unpredictable itineraries in B, bold and sharp as a metropolitan skyline in AB. Ending each time with the same subtle and mysterious note: a metallic vague suspicion.

It is true, there is nothing floral about these fragrances. It is also true that there is a just detectable metallic hit at the end. Intriguing - even for us warmbloods. The fragrances are most certainly unisex, though we’ve learned that “unisex” is a category that only Americans really care about. Everyone else seems able to just appreciate a fragrance on its merits. Blood Concept’s packaging is medical clean, and the fragrances are available in sprays or droppers, which we love – so in keeping with the whole theme!

Twilight fans, I was forbidden to make reference here to a certain vampire who shall remain nameless. The Queen of the Sirens favors the classic dark and twisted vampire over the new sparkly kind. But I feel you. And here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure, because try as you might to resist a trend, the vampire has been a sex symbol for centuries.

I love Giles (see above, with tea). Not a vampire, but what a good character! Feel free to tell me if I’ve missed your favorite vampire here. (Except for that sparkly one. Not happening.) In the meantime, we’ve all discussed it and we’ve come to the decision that Johnny Depp needs to do Vampire. Can you imagine? Why has no one thought of this? Why has this not already happened? It seems so obvious! Seriously, just think about it for a moment. A…MAZE…ING. I could die. Do you think he has something against vampires? I mean, it would have to be a great one. Complicated. Brilliant. Dark and twisted. Someone please get the man a script!
