Freak by Illamasqua

Illamasqua launches it's first fragrance on the 20th October and as you may already know, it's been possible to place pre-orders since Monday. As always the visuals for the release are stunning, the bottle itself is rather a talking point too!


Freak is a unisex fragrance and sounds like it will be dark and intoxicating. In their own words "Freak is concoction of dangerously exotic unconventional flowers which Illamasqua has unashamedly blended to celebrate the night".

Black Davana, Opium Flower and Belladonna bewitch the senses into uncontrollable lust and passion.

Poison Hemlock, Datura and Queen of the Night blossom, caress and kiss.

Aromas of Frankincense, Oud and Myrrh, addictively mesmerises and captures the senses.

Although I shall reserve judgment until I can smell this in person, I suspect Freak wouldn't be a fragrance I would wear. What does really excite me is the description of the three limited edition products that will accompany the release: A nail varnish in Hemlock (pale opal with green iridescent), a pure pigment in Queen of the Night (blackened plum), and a sensual sheer lipgloss in Datura (neutral mauve). I'm really hoping that Hemlock is a lighter version of my favourite Bacterium.


Freak will cost £59 for 75ml of the EDP Fragrance. Are you looking forward to this release? Do you think you will be bold enough to get your Freak On?


  1. The notes sound very interesting so I would like to test this out. I didn't realise they were also releasing makeup products so looking forward to seeing these too.

  2. it sounds like it would be too 'heavy' for me but I really like the snail on the bottle!!!

  3. Oooh. I'm definitely curious enough to want to take a whiff of this! Sounds dreamy.

  4. I do really like the sound of this. I do wish they had bought out a smaller size or a tester you could buy though as for those of us who can't test in store its a bit of a risk spending £59 on a fragance never smelt before. I might wait for more reviews I think x

  5. @Meeta: I didn't instantly spot the makeup either but all of the shade descriptions grabbed me!

    @EJ: My sentiments entirely. I love the bottle and the snail!

    @Eden-Avalon: I will be intrigued to smell it. I suspect it won't suit me but I still fancy the bottle ;)

    @Replica: Yes, I agree on the smaller size, I wonder if they will bring out smaller sizes after the initial release? Within the press release there is a quote which says it will divide opinion. The marmite of the perfume world maybe?
