Not a Perfume is made of 1 single synthetic ingredient � Ambroxan. Ambroxan 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.
Not a Perfume by Juliette Has a Gun (2010) — Basenotes.net / I like this. There is an extended presence of crisp alcohol over the woody warmth that makes up the heart of the cetalox. relatively diffusive & airy in the opening and has a weird nose-tickling quality that almost makes one sneeze. focuses solely on the resinous part of amber and lacks the soft, creamy vanilla of the classic There is also a weird, hot quality to it that makes one think of the smell of dust on a burning lightbulb.
