Birchbox Breakdown

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.

Sophisticated and Simple
Sampled

I loved sampling this fragrance... It's nice to experience something unique as so many fragrances have started to smell the same as of recent. This is the perfect option for the workplace as its sophistication is classic and unoffensive to anyone who may be anti-fragrance. It smells expensive and subtle.

This scent makes me happy. I have had compliments when wearing it, but you have to be careful with overloading. The smell is strong enough that one spritz does the trick.

I can't get enough!

I am absolutely obsessed with this scent! It is so subtle, yet powerful at the same time. The smell is also very unique and very hard to identify as a specific smell.

Interesting
Sampled

I love this scent. It is very clean. This has been my favorite fragrance sample; however, due to the price I will not be purchasing it. The concept of using only one note, yet selling it for the price of a more complex perfume seems gimmicky. I would definitely buy it if it cost less.

Mature Scent

My family and I did not enjoy this scent. My teen daughter told me it smelled like something a much older lady would wear and my spouse asked me to wash it off.

Smells sooooo good
Sampled

This perfume was AMAZING. I was so sad how fast I used it up because the smell is so good. If you like only sweet girly perfumes you probably won't like this but if you're into a bit of spicy and sexy smells this one is definitely for you

Good Sample
Sampled

This was a really good sample for me, namely because I like the scent to wear it on occasion for something different, but not quite enough to buy it. It's interesting and different.

Not for me
Sampled

I wasn't a fan of this scent. I own and use j'adore and Chanel mademoiselle and this was not my taste at all. I only mention the brands because if you like or use similar products, you might not love this.
