Illamasqua Freak



"Teased by the sweet pungent tang of opium". An extract from Theatre of the Nameless instantly made me think of Freak. From first smelling it I loved the scent, strong, deep & with a touch of sweetness. I'd say if you enjoy Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille you may also love this. I'd save it for the night, but cold winter days seem appropriate as well. At first & well still now, I can't quite explain the scent, it's probably one of the most distinguished perfumes I've tried. Not just for the scent, but for the feelings when wearing or smelling it, Freak has a personality.

I could copy & paste the details about the fragrance, but I think that'd take away the fun & personality away from it. That & the ingredients, to me, are a foreign knowledge, but it does make me think old worldy & all things mysterious & magical. So I direct you here. Go read!

It's released on the 20th October & will retail at £59 for 75ml for Eau De Parfum, nothing less, no eau de toilettes here thanks.

I've been looking for a nice vanilla-y scent. I have recently been using Pink Sugar from Sephora which smells like absolute candy, but I feel like it is more of a summer scent. Perhaps this would be more suited for the colder months!

I was so intrigued about that scent when I saw that here in your blog last time and since then I've been on the hunt all over Kohl's, Walmart and even the entire Mall of Minnesotta but just couldn't find that! I just settled with a men cologne discounts for $1.99.
