    One of my favs

    I purchased the 15ml when the company was doing a remodeling of their bottles last winter. At first, i was unable to detect the smell which lead me to think I had a bad batch. However, I stored it in a cool, dry, dark place (as this helps keep the perfume molecules from going rancid); took it out a few months later and I am able to smell the beautiful scent. To me it smells like the Original, but with a much sexier hint which i think is contributed by the Egyptian Musk, a scent which I am all about at this moment in my life.

    Favorite scent

    Sphinx and Original are my favorite of all of the scents. They are subtle but sexy. I like the oil base instead of spray. I don't feel like I'm being overwhelmed by a mist. I think it lasts longer too.

    Disappointed

    My daughter introduced me to this and I couldn’t wait to order my own! I tried hers own and loved it but mine doesn’t have a smell! I can smell it when I take the top off but when I put it on, it has zero smell! Not sure what to do about this? Bad batch maybe?

    This unique quality of our Original and Sphinx fragrances comes up for some people.

    We produce our fragrance oils in batches large enough to fill tens of thousands of our scented products at a time. Our formulas are produced in a facility that maintains a GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) certification. GMP is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. Our formulas are not approved to move forward to manufacturing in our end products until they are run through the lab and signed off on appearance, color, odor, flashpoint, specific gravity, and refractive index. We then go a step further and send samples of each scent to our HQ for our master smeller to sign off for the final approval. Needless to say, a bad batch is nearly impossible. We also, send this scent to thousands of people a month (with a good amount of subscribers who receive it monthly), so we would be made aware if there was something really wrong with the batch.

    I can guarantee that your product is an accurate representation of the fragrance. However, sometimes the fragrances can smell slightly different depending on where they are in their lifespan. We have found that the Original and Sphinx smells more potent and yummier after a couple of months of production. This is because the Original and Sphinx scents are made using only base notes, which are the heaviest scent molecules and take the longest to break down. Since there are no top or middle notes in these scents, you don't get that instant gratification of the immediate smell out of the bottle, but after using the bottle for a while and oxidizing the formula, you begin to smell the base. Base notes take around 30-45 minutes to break down and release into the air.

    Also, pretty commonly people also run into temporary nose blindness with these scents. The ingredient Ambroxan (see video link below) is known for being difficult to detect at times or at all for some people. In case you are not familiar with nose blindness, also know as olfactory fatigue, it is a temporary, naturally occurring adaptation of your body that leads to an inability to detect or distinguish scents that you smell often. Please check out this video, a lot of customer's have found it helpful. It is also important to note that you may strongly smell a musk on someone but not on yourself. We all have our unique body odor type that is like our scent fingerprint, and it is determined by our polymorphic genes. Musks can often amplify those smells, so if you are naturally attracted to a particular person's scent, you may be able to pick up the musk's aroma, acting as a pheromone enhancer. Musks are special scents, and our nose's relationship with them is a bit mysterious.

    I don't want you to feel that I am discrediting your experience. I simply want to provide this information because this is a quality of the Original scent that you may run into again. We have had this exact situation come up for customers, and they end up smelling it again (fun fact: your olfactory receptor cells are regenerated every few weeks).

    Instant Love

    I got this oil from New Beauty. I wasn’t sure what I’d think, I don’t always love to wear fragrances, I don’t like smelling…insincere?!?! I just don’t find much I like to wear regularly. I was excited to try this when they sent me the video link. Well I got it, and I’m very impressed. I don’t smelly artificial or like an incense store or a candy shop…it’s just real and inviting, like me! ;)

    Hey JB, Welcome to the Riddle family! We're glad to hear that you decided to give us a try through New Beauty and fell in love with Sphinx! It really is a warm and inviting scent that truly develops once warmed by the skin. Compliments always seem to follow! We definitely suggest giving either of our layering products, our Boujee body oil and Milky spray lotion, in Sphinx as well. Both feel amazing on the skin and makes that beautiful inviting scent last even longer! Feel free to check them out here: https://riddleoil.com/collections/boujee-body-oil :) Xx Lauren Riddle
