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 you first put it on its a bit overwhelming, but after a few seconds it settles into a nice clean scent. The packaging is pretty plain, but the product smells great.5
It was a little TOO one-note, and I noticed. OK a lot too one-note. Other people use whatever-it's-called as a base for a reason. I want my perfume to have more depth.2
I'm just not a huge fan of amber scents so this just wasn't right for me. It wasn't bad but I don't see myself really ever reaching for it.3
I love perfume, a little spritz goes a long way at work or on a date. This smells like a strong, mature, flowering smell and because it smells like a natural soap or cleanser would, that is why it doesn't feel like a perfume. I love how it stays on light but strong enough for someone to notice the fresh and cute smell. I want to buy the full product because I'm addicted!5
So simple and sexy, not a complex smell and I'm surprised how much I like it!5
Was skeptical after reading that there was only one note in this perfume but boy was I wrong! This is simple yet complex at the same time. Smells clean and awesome! I sprayed it on the inside of my forearm and I was sniffing myself all day, and I could smell the one spray all day long! I will probably purchase in the future.5
I liked the fact that this perfume only had one ingredient and that it was allergen free. It had a pleasant smell that wasn't too strong for me.5
This is a very interesting perfume. I read online that some found it to be flat, which I can understand since it is very simple. But I like it and do not think it is flat. It seems a bit warm and my husband likes it. I might purchase but it is expensive.4
I loved this sample. It is a good summer scent. I wish it were bigger buy that is me being greedy. I will keep this on my list of must haves5
This scent is usually added as a back note to fragrances, so its great on its own. Its reminiscent of other fragrances for this reason, and is an note found in most of the fragrances that tend to appeal to me. This also worked great for layering with scents that already include it!5
