Along with dark skinny jeans and distressed leather jackets, this unisex perfume from the NY-based clothing label exudes downtown cool. BLK DNM founder Johan Lindeberg—a fashion industry veteran who has worked with the likes of Justin Timberlake—set out to create a “perfume with character.” The resulting scent is a spicy blend that will set you apart from the sweet-smelling masses.
At first I wasn't keen on it, but as the day went on I started loving it. It's musky, spicy, a little sweet, and reminds me of an ex-boyfriend. It's leather and lace. Since it's a heavy perfume don't drench yourself in it or the musk note becomes overwhelming. A little dab lasted a good 4-6 hours on me. Of course, scent is incredibly subjective.5
I tend to like non-floral scents and this swept me away. I like the sample so much I bought the full size! It has a sort of edgy vibe, so different from most other scents in the marketplace. It reminds me of leather, tobacco...with an overall richness. Definitely not a kiddy-smelling scent or girlie...more for someone sure of themselves, willing to forge their singular identity.5
I don't know how I first heard about this fragrance but the first time I sampled it, I was intrigued. It is fresh! But spicy. It is floral! But a little musky. If you really wanted to compare it to something, I would compare it to a very popular unisex fragrance launched in the mid-nineties. But in balance to that comparison, Blk Dnm is a fresher, spicier scent.
This is not a sweet scent, and it isn't too perfume-y (no notes of sugar on one end, or ambergris on the other.) So if either of those are your preference, I would not recommend this.
Bottom line: If you love the way your boyfriend's grooming products smell but worry that you'll smell, well, too much like a dude, or you are looking for a modern fragrance that is both grown-up and fresh, this is it.
I feel like too many women's fragrances are strong and powdery...or on the flip side, too young and gourmand. This is spicy and masculine (which i love.) Its attracts attention and curiosity from those close enough. Of the 23572035947 perfume samples I have, this was the single one that I chose to purchase.5
It's a wonderful spicy scent for women like me who don't like smelling like a produce stand or a funeral home.5
I love how it is a unisex fragrance! Perfect tomboy/tough girl smell5
I'm in love with this! It's the first Birchbox product that I know I MUST buy. It definitely has a spicy kick, but in a sexy way. It was made as a unisex scent, which I suppose it could be, but I think I prefer it for females. I can't wait to buy it! The only downside is the price :( so expensive, but worth it I think.5
I love this scent - May have to cheat on my Atelier and buy this too!!!!5
I really liked it. I just have no need to buy more perfume!5
Different and exciting...I'm absolutely in love with it!5
