The young and innovative brand has matured and evolved: a new image, a new design and with ten fragrances to discover through a video dedicated to this new journey.
Blood Concept, was created in 2010 by Antonio Zuddas and Giovanni Castelli, both from Milan. Now licensed to Intertrade Group and thanks to the expertise of their master perfumers and the guidance of Celso Fadelli, new olfactive stories are being presented. This is not the only element to change; working with Agenzia del Contemporaneo, Zuddas and Castelli have also transformed the project aesthetically. Each flacon has become an object of strong visual impact: a cube-shaped casket box holds an elegant semi-transparent black glass cylinder capped with an oversized matt black stopper and a palette of colours chosen for the silk-screen printed detail.
The concept remains faithful to the original idea: to interpret the “blood” varieties according to the infinite shades of human identity and its experiences. Starting from a sophisticated rock mood, the new range consists of ten fragrances divided into three collections that are differentiated according to colour:
- carmine red for THE RED SERIES
- anthracite grey for THE BLACK SERIES
- ultramarine blue for THE UPSIDE DOWN SERIES
The names of the perfumes are still associated with the blood groups and include subtitles that identify their mood, olfactory strength and identity, developing a world of sensorial impressions, stimulated by small inspirational touches.
‘Black B’ holds an important place in the collection and having become an icon of Blood Concept it is the only one whose magical composition has not changed. The principal ingredient, Amber, is accompanied by the new name “Magic Amber”, an intense amber blended with Ambroxan gives the fragrance a dark and ultramodern tone.
With a clear aesthetical and philosophical vision, Blood Concept adds the city of Milan to its identity and seals the artistic pact with the metropolis in which it was created and which represents the pulsing heart of the brand’s edgy spirit. Blood is vital, it is sap, it is the archetype of the energy of the fragrances called Blood Concept. Parfums that are intense and connote a contemporary, sexy and free lifestyle. Capable of entering the innermost soul of each and everyone of us.
