WHAT I SMELL:  This is Not a Blue Bottle opens with vibrant aldehydes tinged with a bright and sunny orange which is more energized than juicy.  Quickly, a warm honey seems to envelope the perfume and takes the bright and sunny to the warm and serene.  The perfume then moves towards a sweetened patchouli with hints of sugar.  But after another short period, this delightful sugared patchouli is met with a light musk that is warmed every so slightly with a woody amber.   This is Not a Blue Bottle is about an effortless and easy of wear of a perfume as there is.

From the Histoires de Parfums website:

For its latest publication, Histoires de Parfums is releasing a blue page representing freedom
of expression for all. This time Histoires de Parfums is not telling a novel, nor citing a tale or poem.

This blue page is yours to write as no one else can do it for you. It’s up to you to be the author of your story. 

Top Note: hypnotic aldehyde, electric orange

Heart Note: metallic geranium, polar honey

Base Note: magnetic amber, ethereal musk, attractive patchouli 

LifeisGoodWHAT IT SMELLS LIKE TO ME:  Life is good!

THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE THIS IS NOT A BLUE BOTTLE: easy, versatile, delightful

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS IS NOT A BLUE BOTTLE: Pierre de Nishapur

Bleu BottleBOTTOM LINE:  This is Not a Blue Bottle may be a concept perfume, but beyond the concept, the fragrance itself is a nice and easy to wear and pleasant every day perfume.  In other words, This is Not a Blue Bottle is a no muss, no fuss perfume with an added dose of great positive energy.  As an added bonus, the pricing is perfection!

  1. Great review as always, but I’ll be passing on this one. Not a patch or musk lover. I do love the bottle, though.

  4. I wonder if the bottle actually is(n’t) blue?.. 🙂 (and I also wonder if “blottle” that I see currently on the brand’s site is a misspelling or has some special meaning)
