This crisp and invigorating fragrance refreshes with wild grasses and blossoming herbs. Earth, moss, and a hint of jasmine in the air bring the luminous feel of new beginnings. Dare to pair this scent with a bright, floral contrast for an additional pick-me-up and a remarkable sensory experience.
Part of the TokyoMilk Dark Femme Fatal Collection, the classic cut-glass bottle with iconic imagery and a gunmetal cap will add a luxurious, enticing flair to your boudoir.
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 Femme Fetale” line, which features edgy, provocative perfumes.

Notes: Wild Grass, Jasmine, Lime, Cardamom, Coriander, Earth, Moss, Ginger.
Style: Green. Enthralling. Graceful.
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. Crushed has an outline of a butterfly on one side, the number 32 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.
“Unique” is certainly a fitting word for this scent and it’s quite difficult to describe. On first spray, it smells strongly of grass, but it doesn’t smell like any ole lawnmower-cut grass. It’s rounded out by very subtle scents of flower and lime. After the perfume dries, the resulting scent is neither a delicate nor sharp scent.
My biggest criticism of this scent is that it’s short-wearing. It fades considerably after the first hour of wear and you can’t smell it after 3 hours unless you pup your nose up to your skin.
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.
