French designer Philippe di Méo continues his exploration of improbable fragrances with his new Trilogie II, Les Eaux Sanguines (Bloody Waters) launched under his label Les Liquides Imaginaires. This second set - see first here - is inspired by "divine wines with a bloody character". Dom Rosa, Bloody Wine and Bello Rabelo look like nail polishes but are three perfumes colored three different shades of red...
The artistic idea here is to reinforce the analogy between perfume and wine as assemblages of great vintages. The language is esoteric.
Dom Rosa, pink Champagne, is the perfume of the blood of a rose sacrificed for the beauty of wine.
Top Note: Champage, Pomelo, Pear
