Illamasqua Freak Eau De Parfum is not a fragrance for everyone. I didn’t even think it was a fragrance for me when I first received a sample of it in my November Glossybox. Upon first smelling the fragrance, I was reminded of the scent of head shops with dread locked goths milling about. I think when I really starting falling in love with this perfume was when I decided to wear it for a day (even though it had disgusted me initially). It really grew on me and the scent really does transform on the skin.
Top Notes: Black davana, opium flower, and belladonna.
Heart Notes: Poison hemlock, datura, and queen of the night blossom.
Base Notes: Frankincense, oud, and myrrh.
Now I know about what half of those scents are, but they do certainly sound dark and exotic.
Another thing I have to mention, which is a bit superfluous, but the bottle is perfection. The little silver snail that sits atop the tilted bottle just makes me squee with delight every time I see it. LOVE.
Illamasqua Freak Eau de Parfum was actually the first item I have purchased after receiving it in a Glossybox, and at £59.00 a bottle that is saying something.
