Dare-to-wear perfumes. Halloween 2018 special.
Explore fringe perfume ideas: too strange, too strong or with background stories that are the wildest of the wild. Below is a selection of perfumes that have been voted as ‘dare to wear’ by many customers of Bloom. This label could be a bit subjective but still this edit can come in useful when accessorizing for a Halloween party.
Which qualities put a perfume formula on the fringe of most people’s comfort zone (or beyond)? Firstly, materials: Mother Nature operates with her own ideas of what smells are for and some flowers can smell of feces (this nuance is called ‘indolic’, indole being a molecule that gives poo it’s distinct, well, … poo smell) or cured meat to attract pollinators. Some smells (the damp smell of moss or the earthiness of vetiver) remind us of dark enclosed spaces we’d rather not go to. Secondly, anything smelling bitter or burned also is very far from everyone’s cup of tea. Finally, it’s perfumes that scare you with a story so odd that even though the materials could be quite safe, your imagination interprets them and their aromas in a special way.
