mmm vampire blood

I am a big fan of the Vampire Blood incense sticks - I love the dark, musky, smoky, very erotic and animalistic deep smell. What else smells like it (and what is Vampire Blood really the smell of anyway)?

Not having smelled the incense I don't know what else is like it, but it's made by a company called Nimbrian Herbs; you might try contacting them to ask what the ingredients are.

You could also try doing a keyword search on Lucky Scent for things like musk, smoke, leather, resin, myrrh etc. and order a sample of a few perfumes.

I highly recommend you poke around over at Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and check out their frankly overwhelming variety of dark, sweet, musky, exotic, etc., scents of all kinds.

(And if you're ever down in L.A., you can stop by their monthly full moon storefront sales and try 'em out for yourself.)

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab seems like the perfect place to go for this in perfume oil form - they have an ENORMOUS variety of very unconventional scents, with a bent towards the dark and gothic. Sin & Salvation and Diabolus are two scent families which seem like the best bet for containing the scent you describe. One thing to keep in mind is that shipping can take a long time depending on your order, but other than that I've heard only great things about their products.

(On preview, hi mykescipark - it appears our brains have the same thoughts!)
