one for the history books
nothing, I REPEAT NOTHING smells like bulletproof. its magical heady waves of ebony wood, coconut and tea leaves will literally make people spin around and take notice. you WILL be asked "WTF are you wearing??? it smells UHHHHmazing!!" trust. go find this ASAP and prepare to have your mind (nose?) blown. just remember a spritz or two will do... its silage is wicked overpowering and bulletproof will trail you for miles if you overdo it.

Stoutly Brewed China Black Tea--or is it leather?--with Cream
Tokyomilk Dark BULLETPROOF is a surprisingly good perfume. The surprise arises primarily from the low cost of this line, with 2 ounces commanding all of $40. Sounds impossible, I know, but Margot Elena is the master of what I have come to refer to affectionately as "budget niche" perfume.

Why niche? Well, because the creations smell natural and feature unique combinations of notes not found anywhere else. What more could one want?

BULLETPROOF offers a dark, even black, China tea note which smells rather leathery to my nose, no doubt in part because of the ebony in the mix. Some reviewers have compared the scent to rubber tires, but I find this quite a bit less intense than either Molinard HABANITA or Bvlgari BLACK, my two reference rubber tire scents. BULLETPROOF also does not give me a headache.

The sillage is pretty big and the longevity excellent, and overall this smells quite good, all things considered. Most of the Tokyomilk creations are fairly linear and sometimes I find them a bit flat. They definitely lack the "radiance" of many haute niche perfumes being offered today. The good news is that they also tend not to be overloaded with the usual aromachemical suspects which have been homogenizing niche perfumery. Margot seems to compose to the beat of her own drummer.

I recommend BULLETPROOF to anyone who likes dark tea and leathery perfumes. I recommend the entire line to anyone who looks to perfume as a substitute for world travel, as each and every one of the perfumes from this house occupies a distinct node on the grand olfactory map.

The bottles are small (the dark series are 2 ounce and the regular series 1 ounce), so they are fun to explore and do not require a big investment to do so. These are probably not perfumes which I would buy twice, but the experience of wearing them for the duration of one bottle is certainly worth much more than the modest asking price!

The Best Tea In Town
Smoked tea leaves and a partnership of dense, dark ebony and Virginia cedar creates an exotic blend that causes interruption, hesitation and sensation. Although the coconut milk note is not detectable, it plays the peacemaker or for lack of a more suitable word, "smooth". It gives the composition balance, never allowing sharp cedar and dark woods to overtake the fragrance. There are myths that ebony wood was used to ward off evil spirits and demons. Perhaps such a fine scent also has spiritual benefits.
