Fresh bamboo and tea leaves meet green fig and soft, white musk in this captivating fragrance with an unexpected twist. Combining the alchemy of allure and the reminder that chance slips by in a whisper, this fragrance is a remarkably uncommon sensory experience.
Melding fresh floral and botanical notes with premiere aromatic essences from land, sea, and sky, the TokyoMilk Dark Fate & Fortune Collection is a set of distinctive fragrances designed in Pairs to act as foils to one another. Dare to tempt Fate & Fortune and there is no telling where it might take you. Each rollerball in the collection comes in a sleek glass vial, enclosed with an elegant cork.
TokyoMilk is a perfume brand created by internationally-renowned perfumer and designer Margot Elena. The brand is best known for creating unusual scents. Sephora now carries TokyoMilk’s “Dark” line, which features edgy, provocative perfumes.
Sephora currently sells 6 of TokyoMilk’s Parfum de Ciggaro Rollerballs. This review is for Chance, which is part of TokyoMilk’s “Fate & Fortune” collection.
Notes: White Musk, Fresh Fig, Tea Leaves, Bamboo
Style: Lush. Tempting. Curious.
TokyoMilk’s Parfum de Ciggaro Rollerballs come in clear, glass vials and are corked at the bottom. The rollerball itself is made of black material that feels like ceramic. It’s decorated with white writing and designs. Chance has a flower image, the number 18, and the company and perfume name on it. The twist-off cap is made of gunmetal-colored plastic.
I love the packaging for all the perfumes in TokyoMilk’s Dark line. The packaging is masculine while still being beautiful.
For the first 30 seconds, this perfume is dominated by alcohol and bamboo scents. But it quickly dies down to a mostly sweet fig scent with hints of bamboo and tea. I don’t smell much musk, even after the perfume as dried down.
This perfume isn’t that long-wearing. It’s noticeable for the first 2 hours, then fades from then on.
TokyoMilk’s Parfum de Ciggaro Rollerballs are nicely priced. For $24.00 you get 0.33 ounces of perfume. This is a somewhat lower price-point compared to other rollerballs sold by other companies at Sephora. It’s not as good of a deal as buying a full-sized perfume bottle, but you get the convenience of travel-friendly packaging in exchange.
