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.
This review is for Excess, which is part of TokyoMilk’s “Femme Fetale” collection.
Notes: Patchouli, Amber Resin, Blood Orange, Oak Bark.
Style: Majestic. Posh. Bold.
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. Excess has an octopus image on one side, the number 28 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.
I don’t have much to say about this scent. It smells exactly like men’s cologne or after-shave and smells a little cheap. The oak dominates over the other notes. It’s very strong and not something I would find pleasant on a guy, let alone on myself.
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.
