What Does Histoires de Parfums 1/.5 Smell Like?
1/.5 Eau de Parfum feels like a breath of fresh air in a mystical dreamland. Inspired by the universal principle of yang, the fragrance blends a bright ozonic citrusy facet with the soft, subtle transparency of aldehyde to create a clean freshness before blending playful, light and sweet airy tones in the heart. Finally, the base warms through slightly and settles itself on your skin with musk, salty ambroxan as one final mineral wave hits.Top notes are Aldehydes, Ozonic Citrusy Accord. Heart notes are Karismal Super, Floral Fantasy. Base notes are Ambroxan, Musk T, Mineral Accord.
Why it’s Escentual:
Composed exclusively of synthetic molecules, This Is Not A Blue Bottle 1/.5 is inspired by the ancient philosophy of yin and yang, the concept that two absolute opposites in nature and life can still harmonise and unite. As the yang edition, 1/.5 Eau de Parfum has a much more airy, ethereal feel compared to its yin counterpart, 1/.4, which is an altogether richer, spicier scent.
We love how 1/.4 Eau de Parfum ties into the concept of yin - which represents the likes of earth, femininity and darkness - using deep, earthy facets composed exclusively of natural essences. Whereas, 1/.5 Eau de Parfum is composed exclusively of synthetic molecules. To us, this perfectly represents yang, which embodies the likes of heaven, maleness, light and activity. In the same way, This Is Not A Blue Bottle 1/.5’s scent is light, airy and angelic through its fresh, clean and weightless fragrance notes, while its synthetic ingredients contrast the earthiness of 1/.4’s natural tone.
But as we all know, yin and yang may be polar opposites, but they somehow unite and harmonise to perfection. Both fragrances unite to honour yin and yang through their opposing designs, while they can also be layered to build upon and enhance both perfumes.
