Illamasqua Freak

The first fragrance by makeup company Illamasqua, Freak supposedly contains notes derived from plants that are generally avoided. Poison hemlock, for one, belladonna for another. It's like Stevie Nicks in fragrance form - a little weird, a little...freaky. The scent itself, however, is pretty standard. It opens up smelling like a somewhat old-fashioned dry floral with perhaps a dose of patchouli. Later on, what seems like patch manifests itself as oud, the fad note of the year, making the scent a little more interesting.

Freak is a nice enough scent, but not as odd as it wants to be.

Notes: black davana, opium flower, belladonna, poison hemlock, datura, queen of the night blossom, frankincense, oud, myrrh
