Freak by Illamasqua.


Todays post is all about Illamasqua’s gorgeous scent, Freak. Before Christmas my sister and I were in the Liverpool store, when we asked the gorgeous Leena about perfume for our mum.  She showed us ‘Freak’, Illasmasqua’s first scent and I fell in love!  It’s described as ‘A concoction of dangerously exotic flowers, blended together to celebrate the night.’
Leena told us that the flowers that provide the scents are flowers that bloom at nighttime, which I love as it's so unusual!

Here's a little more about the details of the fragrance:

Top Notes: Black Davana, Opium Flower and Belladonna.

Heart Notes: Poison Hemlock, Datura and Queen of the Night Blossom.

Base Notes: Aromas of Frankincense, Oud and Myrrh.

So although I had originally looked at this for my mum I just had to have it for myself and I luckily got the 75ml bottle for Christmas from Santa! I loved it so much I bought the 30ml bottle in the sale too. This scent is absolutely beautiful. It’s so different and provocative compared with the sweet, fruity scents I usually wear (such as Prada Candy & Chanel Chance) but I adore it! For me it’s very much an evening perfume, it’s so alluring and even has some traces of aphrodisiac in it. The fragrances in it combine beautifully to enhance the wearer’s natural perfume and give what I would describe as a slightly masculine fragrance. I adore masculine smells so this suits me perfectly. It’s also really long-lasting so I’m not constantly having to top it up which we all know is a god-send. 

Also I'm not usually one for talking about packaging but can we look at the detail on the larger bottle, the little snail is just gorgeous!

So many people have commented on this fragrance when I wear it, which makes me feel great. My sister even went and bought herself a bottle too! Definitely a must-have for any night out and although it’s pricey it’s worth every penny for me. I will be investing again when my current bottles run out.

What are your favourite evening perfumes? xo
