“If my different creations had one thing in common, it would be the presence of an ingredient I am particularly fond of. Overdosed in Lady V and Calamity J, more discrete in Miss Charming and Citizen Queen, I use it regularly to bring elegance to my creations because of its unique and inimitable woody, musky finesse. So, this time I have created a perfume out of this one ingredient - a perfume that wouldn't be in the conventional sense of the term. I will leave you to discover it on your skin because it is only through contact that its secrets will be unveiled." —Romano Ricci, Founder
Along with today's minimalist trend, Not a Perfume follows suit and adds extremity, irreverence and conceptual characteristics to deliver a true art form. You have now stepped into a new and elegant form of perfumery. With Not a Perfume you get exactly what you want from the scent: it does not evolve; it is not a composition, but rather a particular fragrance that is very strong & lasting on skin. Just like the white packaging it's housed in, its makeup is fresh, clean, and clinical. This brand new concept from Romano Ricci is a modern day fragrance that is 100% synthetic and created without allergens.
Not a Perfume is made of 1 single synthetic ingredient Cetalox. Cetalox is a molecular creation that comes from the organic research. Developed by Firmenich in the 1950's to replace Ambergris, a very rare natural secretion of whales, Ambroxan comes in the form of white crystals. It is usually used as a back note in perfume composition, even if its smell is curiously quite far from its original inspiration.
I have the authentic perfume but wanted one for travel, and they have definitely added alcohol to the “split”. Considering what I paid for a small travel size, I’m better off buying a full bottle of the real stuff and splitting it myself. Not exactly a transparent transaction.
Every part of the process went smoothly. I received every fragrance in neat packaging. Would buy from here again.
Very light, pleasant scent with a hint of sweet
I love this because, like Glossier You (when it first came out), it smells very much like it's made for me. That's when the weather is cooler. When it was really hot & humid, this fragrance just disappeared on me & was less than a skin scent. The slightly cooler fall weather is better for this perfume. It's soft and subtle and projects to about arm's length. On me, the dry down is powder & amber with a little bit of airiness to it. I like to wear this to snuggle with someone or even just to sleep (alone). It's very much a scent that plays differently on everyone. On my friend, it's almost citrus-like, which is weird.
