Bloody Wood Review

Whilst not recalling a Bloody Mary as one might have guessed, Bloody Wood is nevertheless very much a boozy scent. 
The titular sanguineousness derives primarily from rose oxide, whose metallic greenery comes off as almost camphorous against an intensely yeasty, fermented, winey heart of cognac oil. Mercifully, the latter doesn't ever cross the line to vomity territory (as it does at higher concentrations), but the effect is still unsettling. 
Top marks for composition and innovation.
