Finally, I’ve decided to write a review of this perfume. It’s pretty hard to describe fragrance without fancy metaphors, but I’ll try…
When I was a bit younger (I’m 23 now) I preferred candy sweet fragrances.
My tastes have changed recently. Now I love floral scents with citrus notes.
I received this perfume as a gift from my boyfriend. He had chosen it himself, and I had no idea what his choice would be like.
So it was a big surprise for me.

That’s the bottle without the outer cardboard box and another box. It was decorated with a ribbon.
The packaging is so sweet!
Please note that the lid doesn’t close tightly and may open up in your bag.
The bottom of the box with product information:
The bottle itself is pretty heavy, made of frosted glass. There are a few glossy images on it, which don’t fade over time. The bottle looks impressive and will be a definitive favorite on your dressing table.
Price: about $115.00 for a 1,7 oz/ 50 ml. bottle.
I’ve been using this fragrance for 1,5 years now, alternating with other perfumes.

I have to note that this perfume has a strong sillage. Wherever I go with it, I leave an amazingly smelling trail, which attracts attention. Due to its formula, the fragrance cannot cause allergies, plus it smells different on different people.
And yes, this perfume is very sexy! Perfect for a night out It makes me think about it...you know.
It’s a powdery scent, but it’s not heavy at all! It’s very peculiar, I’d say.
By the way, about it being woody and earthy; it may seem that the fragrance is too strong and annoying. But once the particles of it are on your skin, it turns into a lightweight gorgeous scent. Any small puff of air spreads it and attracts attention to you.
To be honest, I would have never liked this perfume if I were younger. Some may think it’s too bold, too mature and winter-like. But in fact, my love for it grows stronger with each passing day, and other fragrances pale in comparison with it.
I’ve never received so many compliments before, both from men and women, from colleagues and people on the street.
It sprays without leaving any drops on my clothes. The formula resembles powder indeed.
When I use this perfume, I feel like a sophisticated, self-confident and successful woman, regardless of the dress I’m wearing.
Girls, if you are looking for something special, try Not a Perfume. It won’t leave you indifferent!
I’m in love, forever...
