In Lisbon, MÉLOVIN brought drama to the Blue Carpet by spraying media with his own fragrance. Now the porcelain vampire is launching the perfume so that fans can also enjoy the distinct aroma of Black Gas in their own homes.
The Ukraine pop-goth is known for his love of blending his own fragrances and he came to the Blue Carpet armed with Black Gas, which he sprayed on the unsuspecting media. The fragrance is now available on pre-order, so that fans can enjoy the full sensual experience as they listen to MÉLOVIN’s music.
Black Gas has solid goth credentials. In a Facebook post, the scent is said to have been “developed personally by MÉLOVIN on the full moon night”.
It is described as “Perfume for strong and self-confident personalities” and is also summed up as “mysterious, languid, warm, intriguing, recognizable, niche”.
But there’s more to Black Gas than just its curious name. It’s a complex fragrance, with upper notes of green strawberry and chocolate, heart notes of black coffee and fiery ginger, and base notes of ambergris and a mysterious substance called “black ud”.
Wiwibloggs editor William Lee Adams experienced the power of Black Gas on the Blue Carpet. He said, “Chocolate lovers will revel in the scent, which reminded me of strawberries covered in melted chocolate. This is a fondue party for the senses. Unfortunately when Melovin sprayed me, the perfume went straight into my eyes, which prevented me from fully enjoying it. So please spray responsibly.”
Wiwibloggs contributor Bogdan Honciuc, who was also at the Blue Carpet event, described Black Gas as being “very heavy” and reminiscent of M7, the iconic Yves Saint Laurent men’s fragrance designed by Tom Ford.
On the Blue Carpet, MÉLOVIN told wiwibloggs that he had created the fragrance especially for Eurovision. He said, “I’m so proud and happy that this is the place I can present my first perfume.” And added that, “This perfume is for strong, powerful and brave people like myself.”
The unisex fragrance comes in a 50ml bottle and is available on pre-sale for €100 (US$115). Details are available via Facebook.
