Dragon’s blood is a natural plant resin. It’s dark red in colour, which is part of what gives dragon’s blood its name.
The resin is extracted from many different tropical tree species commonly called dragon trees. These may come from the plant groups Croton, Pterocarpus, Daemonorops, or Dracaena.
The plant resin has been used for thousands of years for distinct purposes. There are records of its use among the ancient Greeks and Romans and in India, China, and the Middle East.
The scent of dragon's blood resin is earthy and dense, but it also has a musky, slightly sweet floral aspect to it, which can sometimes be rose-like. Fragrance notes: Earth, musk, spice, slight sweetness, and rose.
