I received a sample of Not A Perfume in my Birchbox and fell in love. I have been looking for an everyday fragrance for years now. Everything was too floral or too earthy or just not right. And then THIS.
Here's the thing. I wanted the full size bottle immediately. But then I read all of the reviews about the full size bottle smelling like alcohol or, my personal favorite, "water that the original fragrance spit on." And let me tell you, that's true. If you spray the full size bottle on a tester piece of paper, it's not going to smell like much.
BUT! That's because this fragrance is meant to interact with your natural scent and oils to create a scent custom to you. So while yes it doesn't smell like much when you spray it into the air or on a piece of paper, it's when it's sprayed onto your skin that the amazingness of this scent comes out. I have people ask me throughout the day what I'm wearing because they love the smell so much. This is my fragrance for life!
