    Some say the first is always the best and this rings true with the first edition of This is Not a Blue Bottle. Derived from The Treachery of Images, a famous work in the 1920s by the Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte, molecular scents evoking the most elemental aspects of life: abstraction, fire, color, yin, yang, and love; together, create an irresistible gallery of blue. The 1.1 edition, opens with masculine freshness of electric bitter orange and metallic aldehydes as it pulls you into a polar vortex of iced patchouli and magnetic musk. The laws of attraction and abstraction come together as one.

    Notes include hypnotic aldehyde, electric orange, metallic geranium, polar honey, magnetic amber, ethereal musk, and attractive patchouli.
