Birchbox Breakdown

Romano Ricci, the self-described “offbeat dandy of the perfume world”, only used one element—Cetalox—to create this minimalist perfume. Even if you'’ve never heard of it, you’'ve undoubtedly picked up its scent. Used as a back note in thousands of fragrances, Cetalox (a synthetic substitute for grey amber) takes center stage in Not a Perfume. The result is elegant, pure, spicy, and completely allergen-free.

Sophisticated and Simple
Sampled

I loved sampling this fragrance... It's nice to experience something unique as so many fragrances have started to smell the same as of recent. This is the perfect option for the workplace as its sophistication is classic and unoffensive to anyone who may be anti-fragrance. It smells expensive and subtle.

strong sent

As soon as I opened my birch box I could smell the perfume. It is a very strong musky like scent.

Amazing smell

I love this scent! It is understated but nice. Plus my mom is not allergic so I can wear it around her. Love how portable this sample is. Definitely interested in purchasing.

Kind of weird

I think the story of this scent is interesting and enticing, but the actual scent is weird. It reminds me too much of rubbing alcohol

Lovely, underrated scent.

This is not a loud, boisterous scent. It is a nice, subtle way of adding a lightness to your own personal surroundings, without offending anyone who happens to come nearby. It would be good to wear to work in an office or somewhere with close quarters, since it isn't too overpowering.

Smells soooooo good. Wish it was a bit more affordable, but it's worth every penny.

Good base, but not scent

This is great for mixing scents that are "too much" for me, and making them a little more even for me to wear. I'm not much of a fragrance girl anyway.

It was just way too much by itself, with too little body to even out the scent.
