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've gotta say that at first I was confused with the packaging/brand name. It's not a perfume? Oh wait, it is a perfume called not a perfume, ha! It was my very Birchbox, so I wasn't sure how everything was labeled. I spritzed it on the envelope first to get a sense of the scent, not something I liked, but I went ahead and did another spritz on my wrist. Nope, definitely not for me. However, my daughter said she liked the smell and it's now hers. So bottom line is, it may not work for me, but doesn't mean someone else wouldn't like it.2
In the description for this parfum, it is mentioned that they were looking to create a "minimalist" scent..... That is kind of the opposite of what I got, when I took a whiff of this parfum.
It's rather strong scented and a bit too much for me. It's not a BAD scent, per se, but it's certainly not a LIGHT scent; I wouldn't suggest this scent to someone whom would consider themselves a minimalist.
Very small sample but the scent was pleasant and fresh. The price however is a little too high for me.5
This was a subtle, different scent than what I typically wear. I've tried it a couple times now, but it seems to wear off quickly. Not worth the money for me.3
This perfume has a great scent it's very fresh and can be worn for everyday5
This was not my favorite fragrance. If you want something very subtle and light, then this might be for you. The fragrance dissipated very quickly.3
This perfume is great. It is light and doesn't make me sneeze - although it does go on at first a little strong. The sample spray bottle I received is great - it's much easier to use than the dab method of other sample bottles. I love the creative name - it is an eye catcher. I do not love the price, and for that reason alone, I will probably not purchase it. $100 perfume is not something I can add to my budget right now - however, if there were other,cheaper options for the scent, I would definitely consider it. I give this an A and I am happy I got it in my box this month!5
Absolutely love this product! The scent is strong but not irritating to me or people around me. I also noticed the scent still is present even after only putting it on in the am after a long day! I definitely plan on purchasing a larger bottle of this. I wish the sample was larger so I could use it more frequently before purchasing.5
Smell is light, not to strong, but AMAZING! Lasts throughout the day without being overbearing! WONDERFUL!5
Good product. I'm happy to have had the chance to try it5
