TokyoMilk’s Dark perfumes come in rectangular spray bottles. The bottle is made of black material that feels like ceramic. It is accented with white writing and designs. Arsenic has a gun image on one side, the number 45 on another side, and the company and perfume name on another side. The spray nozzle and cap are a gunmetal color. It releases a very fine mist. The box the perfume comes in has the same color scheme as the bottle and is made of medium-thick cardboard.
I love the packaging for all the perfumes in TokyoMilk’s Dark line. The bottles are masculine, beautifully simple, captivating and sophisticated. It’s something I would leave on my dresser as decoration even if I didn’t really use the perfume inside.
At first spray, this scent is extremely spicy and masculine. After the first hour, the scent becomes less sharp, but is equally spicy and masculine. I don’t smell any notes of jasmine, probably because the spice notes overwhelm them. The coconut notes are also barely noticeable for the same reason.
Even as a girl who leans toward masculine scents, this is too much for me. It’s very aggressive and it’s not even a scent I would like on a guy. There’s a hint of a cheap-cologne-like quality to the scent too.
But if you do like aggressive, masculine scents, you’ll be happy to know that TokyoMilk’s eau de parfums are nicely priced. For $36.00 you get 2 ounces of perfume. This is a much lower price-point for the amount of perfume compared to most of the other perfume companies you’ll find sold at Sephora.
