Urban Decay Fragrance Oils are back. Remember them? I told you a little about Urban Decay Revolver Fragrance Oil last week and today thought I’d share the deets of what I thought of the new fragrance today.
What is it?
A super perfume oil concentrate with notes top notes of lychee and pineapple, a middle note of fig, and base notes of both amber and Egyptian musk.
Just like Urban Decay this is a dangerous, edgier scent that won’t appeal to just anyone. Although the scent begins with a happy note of green it ends with very dominate notes of amber and musk. The scent is a very evolved, unique blend that should appeal to those who like a mysterious aura in their fragrances.
It’s a mere 14ML bottle with a roller ball applicator but don’t let the size full you as it packs a serious punch. A little roll and you’ll have linger and throw to last at least 12 hours straight through, if not longer! It’s a pure, unadulterated fragrance that isn’t killed off with water or alcohol so you’re getting the full extreme effects of a very concentrated blend.
Sadly, it fails to excite me. I like the beginning notes of green which smell fresh however the amber and musk take it into the realms of darkness which is one place I do not go with fragrance. I like my scents sunny, fruity, and sweet and this sadly brings none of those things to the table as it gives off a very mature, dangerous air that is simply not fitting with what I like to smell like. Perhaps a little stinky hippie it some aspects but nothing at all in the realms of patchouli just more deeper and darker than I am willing to cross over into.
Could be debated that the $26 price tag for a mere 14ML is a tad too expensive however you won’t hear me complain as it’s worth this price due to it’s formula.
Who might like it?
- Unique fragrance lovers.
- Anyone who wants incredibly long wearing scent.
- Those who like deeper more dangerous blends.
Who might not like it?
- Anyone that enjoys fruity, sweeter blends.
- Anyone who does not like the amber as a note (this is what gives the fragrance a certain edge).
Sadly, I could nit get on board with this one but I find it a completely fitting fragrance for Urban Decay’s edgier personality. It’s perfectly fitting with what the brand represents and makes sense they went with something a little dark. Honestly, we didn’t expect sunshine and rainbows in a bottle from UD right? You’ll probably enjoy this if you personality leans more towards the edge…..
As for me? I like the darkness but just don’t completely embrace that side of my nature.
Available now from Urban Decay.
