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.
Coco Noir by Chanel. To be honest, with the amount of patchouli in this, I didn't think I would like it at all. I didn't like the original Coco, or Coco Mademoiselle (which is lovely on my sister, but not on me), so I didn't expect much. But there's nothing like a Chanel fragrance, and this is one of the sexiest. It absolutely blew me away.
Romano Ricci, the self-described offbeat dandy of the perfume world, only used one element—Cetalox—to create this minimalist perfume. Even if you've never heard of it, you've undoubtedly picked up its scent. Used as a back note in thousands of fragrances, Cetalox (a synthetic substitute for grey amber) takes center stage in Not a Perfume. The result is elegant, pure, spicy, and completely allergen-free.
