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.
I am not huge on wearing perfumes due to my line of work, but had to buy this after getting it in one of my boxes. The scent evolves as it sits on the skin (I find that it's more pleasant a little while after application) and is light enough that it's something I can wear to work on a daily basis. Yes, it's expensive, but I think it's worth the value to have something that I love and will wear!5
This "not a perfume" is amazing. I get lots of compliments when wearing it. My mother lives with me and has many allergies so I typically don't wear perfume/cologne. However.... GREAT NEWS!!!! This one doesn't bother her. Will definitely be purchasing this!!5
I don't care much for most perfumes... I like a very light natural scent and this nails it. Reminds me more of an essential oil type scent than a perfume. But way to pricy for such a small amount. I was bummed!! I would easily pay half that but $100 is a bit much.4
Got this in my subscription box, LOVED the sample. Ordering my second bottle of it tonight. Light, not overpowering, able to be worn at work.5
When I got this is my box, I thought it might be overbearing like some of the other perfume samples I have received. I Was Wrong. I feel in love with one use and so did my husband. He smelt it and got on my Birchbox himself and bought it for me!5
I absolutely love this perfume! It's not overbearing and can be used for any occasion.5
I don't even know how to describe the smell. It is just so warm and sexy. My husband smelled it when I got a sample and told me to order it. He loves it on me.5
I gave my wrist a little spritz and 24 hours and a shower later I can still smell the perfume. To strong a scent for me, will not purchase.2
I loved this perfume. it was very long lasting and not to strong. it has such an unusual smell that everyone I came in contact with wanted to know what it was. I will be buying this from now on. I ran out of the sample and used my other perfume and my boyfriend asked why did I change perfumes. I thought he never noticed. great product. the scent is so different it keeps you wondering
I put a minimal amount of this one, and it smelled like I took a bath in my grandmother's perfume. The scent itself - an hour later and after scrubbing my wrists and neck - is probably decent, but this is SOOOO overpowering that it's just gross.
I put it on for a special occasion tonight and it's just horrible. I can't get it off. I'm trapped in this cloud of Sunday morning old lady brunch stench.
It probably could be nice, but it is so darn overpowering I'm too distraught to tell.
And, my hands started burning when I washed it off. Still burning. And my special occasion date with my husband isn't too romantic anymore given that I smell like his grandmother.
They lie. It IS a perfume. Even if it's some kind of crafty formula, has an asterisk after it "technically" isn't a perfume, it SO is.
I wish I'd paid closer attention to the bad reviews.
