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.
When I selected my preferences for birch box I said I would prefer very few perfumes. This particular one was described as being not a perfume and using the ingredient that is normally the undertone in most perfumes. Well, that undertone must be the reason I dislike perfumes, because this scent is just so overpowering and gives me an instant headache and nausea. I would definitely not recommend to anyone sensitive to scents.1
This smells like an old lady. In fact, no one would even take it from me. None of my friends or co-workers would even take it from me. I ended up throwing it away.1
This scent was not for me - first one I've received that I won't be using. Packaging looks nice on full size, though.1
Really didn't like the smell. Would not purchase it or recommend it to anyone. Birchbox offers so many other wonderful smells they should not send this out as a sample to anyone!1
I was not impressed but this perfume. It was weird and not appealing to my nose or others. I am a huge perfume lover and love trying new scents but this scent was not my favorite.1
I felt the smell was overwhelming and wasnt a scent I would wear. I don't think I would purchase this in the future.1
I was excited about this because i don't like heavy perfumes at all. This stuff is just so weird. Just not sure what to think of it. I don't like it.1
The scent is incredibly strong and overpowering. Not my type of scent at all. The packaging for the full sized product seems cute though.1
First, the name is silly. Second, the perfume itself is a bit off. I cannot place exactly the scent that is the offender, but it is the one that lingers. Initially, it smelled ok, not great, but as the top notes wore off, the base notes lingered way too long.1
Well I am very picky with my scents I like earthy and fresh scents nothing floral either. With this I feel I didn't get any of that. After having it on for a while, i felt the smell just lingered in a bad way. It reminds me of something a very old aunt would wear.1
