Each Imaginary Authors fragrance is inspired by a novel, and this one, Bull’s Blood by Devante Valéreo, is a story full of passion bordering on the obscene. The scent on the other hand is a perfect blend of patchouli, rose and musk. If you like your scents earthy and sexy then this one is for you. For those who are more faint of heart, we say, “take a walk on the wild side” and see what happens.
Devante Valéreo was raised in a dusty Spanish village on the Balearic Sea. He fondly recalled going to the bullfights with his father, an ex-picador, and credited those early experiences with inspiring his most popular novella, Bull’s Blood. The book’s lurid tale of seduction garnered obscenity charges against the author. Though the charges were rejected by the court, a ban on the sale of his works persisted for a number of years.
A fixture in Barcelona, smoking cigarillos and writing in the cafés and bars into the night, Valéreo disappeared as a fugitive in 1967 after a highly publicized bar scuffle with American sailors, one of whom later died from his injuries. “A man who has killed,” he wrote in Bull’s Blood, “is a man who knows passion.”
