Blood Concept Compatibility Fragrance Test
We were curious to see if these four blood-type-based unisex fragrances (available in A, B, AB and O), that all have a metallic note that reminds us of...well...blood, would appeal to anyone (other than a vampire). Web editor Ruth Baron wasn't at all squeamish about trying a few drops of these red-colored scents. "With the Twilight craze, blood is hot right now," she says, "98.6 degrees to be exact." Baron's favorite was A—oddly enough her blood type—which had a grassy scent with hints of basil, but O (a cedar and leather blend) and B (a patchouli and black cherry mix) followed a close second and third. AB, however, which the package insert promises to be "sharp and cruel," smelled a little too...surgical for her taste.
