The carrot on the backside of a pig
In one scene of the film "Brust oder Keule" ("Chest or Club"), Louis de Funès as restaurant critic Charles Duchemin whirls through a kitchen. And what's with the carrot in the pig's backside?" Well, the strict guardian of the Grail of upscale Gallic gastronomy could not cope with such innovations. Although the director concealed the corresponding picture, the head cinema (a childlike one at any rate) worked quite well.

Who would have thought that I could have such difficulties with a fragrance (thanks for the sample!) much appreciated by Can777? Usually our opinions are closer together. And today I count three metaphorical carrots, which are inserted during the course of the fragrance at different times, so to speak...um....

But first of all there is a furious prelude of cherry, grass, something like bitter almond aroma and glue. Within half a minute, of course, the dancing odours are combined in an almost alchemistic way, in a kind of ambrating and freshly lacquered semolina and hedge cut sweetness. Garnished with a candied cocktail cherry. Should the idea of leather creep in today via care products? I remember from my childhood a shoe polish that smelled like almond / marzipan.

After about an hour it turns out, however, that the leather track is apparently not supposed to dominate at all: Pungent resin is added. I don't know what Dragon's Blood smells like, but it has to be. It is surrounded by creamy sweetness, with which it enters into a quite unique interplay. Bitter and sweet at the same time.

But unfortunately the aura of cherry-related bitter almond back aroma, which made it through the opening phase and now wobbles in unchanging penetrance around the events (Mohrrübe #1), increasingly disturbs me. Unsuitable (Mohrrübe #2) I also find the appearance of the rose, which is tipped over by a dry German red wine. I suspect that - in addition to the care product - the idea of leather should also fan out. For me it sometimes seems as if the connection between rose and leather can be quite tight, see Montale.

Last but not least (Mohrrübe #3) the fragrance swings early in the afternoon to a light-furry, later strangely becremt wood, which makes me think of the partly somewhat unhappy - and unquestionably fully synthetic - Elaborate from MGO.

A good part of my disappointment can be traced back to the fact that my previous Nimerè tests had set the bar fairly high on balance. In my (so far lonely) opinion, 'Dragon Blood' therefore falls behind some of his siblings.

The Kiss of the Dragon
NIMERÉ PARFUMS – “DRAGON BLOOD” by Nikolay Eremin
Every one of us has the dark side deeply hidden. Just like every artis of perfumer longs to ease his soul with facing the sinister parts of himself. By creating something frightening and disturbing he struggles with his own demons. This process however leads you to your own dark desires because you can almost touch the power of darkness in its most beautiful form and variety. This is far more than Pandora’s Box, which should never be opened because it contains almost irresistibly sweet and tempting call of the sin.
Nikolay Eremin offers his darkest self with this creation. He introduces us to his evil and vicious twin.
With the first contact on the skin the dragon starts to dance, first sweet and tempting. The smell of dark cherries, sweet and juicy, is highly present in first moment. This moment is almost harmless. But the real dance starts in this very moment. Nikolay’s creation starts to change to become bitter and smoky without losing much of its original sweetness. But with very next minute the resin of the dragon tree emerges and exudes its bitter-smoky melancholy. The air begins to glow and the scent develops a kind of heat you can almost feel. Spicy pepper and a nice subtle note of rose are floating like lava on your skin. The red dragon is now spiting fire!
In the base, the scent of vetiver and oak is earthier and a bit quieter. Everything culminates with almost meaty leather odor with slight, almost discreet, touch of sweetness. This is a true sensual spectacle!
Nikolay has created something disastrously attractive with his “Dragon Blood”. He plays a higly dangerous game with use of the of the dragon tree resin for his perfume creation. The Quiché Indians in Guatemala often used this resin in their sacrificial ceremonies so the gods should get mild. It has also been used in embalming and in medicine. The color of ground dragon blood has a vermilion red color and is also used for paints and varnishes. It exudes a burning and pungent-bitter odor, which causes a severe scratching in the respiratory tract.
Ever since “Anubis” by Papillon Artisan Perfumes conquered the throne of my collection, Dragon Blood is definitely one of the most interesting leather scents to cross my way. This perfume is somehow disturbing but extremely attractive in a sensual and elegant way, and reflects perfectly Nikolay’s dark Russian side. In my opinion this is a true masterpiece!
Dragon Blood offers an initially strong projection, which goes back to become more subtle with a longevity up to twelve hours. This truly gloomy attractive scent is disturbingly fascinating. I like that! In my opinion this is the best done fragrance among Nimerè creations.
This perfume is literally savagely beautiful!
