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.
The premise of this makes sense to me, however I just didn't enjoy the scent as I wanted to. Maybe it was my chemistry but it just gave me a mild headache.1
I tried this spray, and my first thought was that it was nice, the longer I kept smelling it, the more I fell in love with the scent. I am a hard sell on fragrances, it is not many scents that will keep me coming back for more tries. I wanted to buy it, yet it is is so expensive! I am still contemplating...5
My birch box came with a little trial vial. Loved the scent. Light and not musky. I tend to stay away from things that have a musky sent due to allergies. This has a spice note to it that makes it refreshing and a touch sophisticated.5
Very interesting...that's the best way to describe this scent that is like no other. I only wish it was cheaper or that a smaller bottle was also an option5
It is nice to try a new sample but this one wasn't necessarily for me. It had a sweet floral scent at the end.3
I could enjoy this fresh scent at work without setting off allergies in others or creating a larger smell presence when I enter a room. Good if you work in small spaces.5
I enjoyed the smell of this. It's very clean and almost incensey. It is very potent though so a little goes a long way. It had great staying power on my skin. My only concern is that although this is advertised as "hypoallergenic", it is a strong fragrance so fragrance sensitive people should still be cautious.4
I truly enjoyed wearing this fragrance! The staying power was also really good. Makes me feel happy and nice all day long. Though I would like to say that $100 for this is a bit too much.4
I liked the fragrance, but I use essential oils that can create a similar simple fragrance.3
If I could double the amount of stars I gave to this, I would do it 10 times. I would have probably never come across this stuff if I wouldn't have received it as a sample, and now it is literally ALL I wear. This is the most incredible perfume I've ever owned, and I get compliments CONSTANTLY. BUY THIS!!!!5
