As far as samples go, this has to be one of the best presented I have ever seen. Illamasqua definetely don't do things half way. The little bottle comes with a list of the key notes and a little poem.
I haven't heard of most of the key notes, let alone know what they smell like. Together it's quite an interesting scent, very rich in and very dark, which is to be expected from Illamasqua. I wouldn't wear this during the day, it's definitely a scent that should be reserved for evening. I sprayed the smallest amount on my wrists this morning and I was still smelling little hints of it several hours later.
Personally I really like this scent. It's very unique, and despite Illamasqua marketing it as being a unisex perfume there is something about Freak that I find particularly feminine. It may be too rich for some, but I love it.
Now, I would love a full bottle. But honestly, I can't justify spending £59 on a perfume, especially one that I won't wear in the daytime. It's a lovely scent for evening, but for a student like me it's just beyond my budget.
Have you tried Freak? What do you think?
Disclosure: I received this sample with an online order.
