Sorry I couldn’t resist getting the song lyrics to the world’s cheesiest song by Another Level into the title of today’s post. Back to the point of the post…

If you read my December favourites (here) you would have seen me mention this perfume..

Illamasqua Freak

I’d initially got a sample of this from the Illamasqua event, however Santa Claus must have heard me going on about this perfume as on Christmas Day there was a bottle of it under the Christmas tree.

How fabulous is the packaging- it just screams Illamasqua.

Illamasqua say that Freak is a "concoction of dangerously exotic unconventional flowers that Illamasqua has unashamedly blended together to celebrate the night".

The little snail on the bottle is adorable.

Top Notes
Black Davana, Opium Flower and Belladonna bewitch the senses into uncontrollable lust and passion.
Heart Notes
Poison Hemlock, Datura and Queen of the Night blossom, caress and kiss.
Base Notes
Aromas of Frankincense, Oud and Myrrh, addictively mesmerises and captures the senses

This is most definitely a night time perfume, its too powerful for the daytime (if that makes sense). What I love about this scent (apart from the fact that it lasts an entire night out), is that due to the limited availability very few people wear this scent- which makes it completely unique when you wear it. I’ve had many comments on this perfume when I’ve had it on- a randomer was asking in the toilets on Saturday night.

The bottle itself retails for £59 for 75ml, however I’d been informed by Santa’s helper (aka my mother) that she got 10% off in Fenwicks. Stockists is also very limited- Illamasqua Stores, their website, Harrods, Selfridges, and Fenwicks. However I don’t know if that’s cause there’s a concession in Newcastle Fenwicks.

If you have the chance to buy this- get it!!
