Illamasqua Freak perfume

Described as 'a concoction of dangerously exotic unconventional flowers' Illamasqua 's Freak perfume is bold, daring and designed to stand out.

Top notes: Black dawana, opium flower and Belladonna
Heart notes: Poison hemlock, Datura and Queen of the night
Base notes: Frankincense, Oud and Myrrh

Looking at the fragrance notes, there are a lot of names I don't recognise, but somehow it just blends together perfectly. It starts off quite masculine, but almost immediately the floral notes start to emerge, and it eventually settles to becomes a seductive oriential, with hints of flower, incense and wood.

The perfume is mysterious and sexy but still light enough to be worn during the day. Even the packaging has been well thought out- the slanted purple black bottle fits the perfume perfectly. Definitely one to try out next time you pass an Illamasqua counter!

Have you tried this perfume yet? What sort of fragrances do you normally go for?

  3. I got this in my GlossyBox and loved it - it's totally different to the perfumes I usually wear but a really unique unusual scent. I'm definitely going to put a full sized bottle of it on my perfume wishlist...x
