I would just like to start by saying this fragrance has made me feel like the baddest bitch on the planet. I first heard about Riddle Oil from our awesome Director of Lifestyle, Peggy Wang, because every time she passed by or whenever we’d have a meeting I would get whiplash because of how great she smelled — it literally stops you in your tracks.
Riddle Oil, a pheromone-based perfume, is a “one of a kind fragrance that works with your body’s natural chemistry.” I chose the original scent which has “a fresh, clean and subtle presence made of musky base notes.” The lovely folks at Riddle sent me the Riddle Oil *plus* the Lotion Spray and Riddle Body Oil. They suggest putting on the lotion first and then the roll-on oil to really let the body chemistry magic happen. The lotion spray comes out nicely and doesn't squirt everywhere; it's not too oily and the smell comes through right away. I put the lotion on my arms and neck, and then dabbed the roll-on oil over my wrists, inner arms and on my neck. Riddle suggests not rubbing the oil in so that the notes of the fragrance are protected.
No one noticed my scent right away, which kind of took me off guard, so I decided to brush it off and go about my day. Fast forward a few days, and people FINALLY began to compliment me. As I was walking to work, a man (who I assumed was a model going to a casting call nearby) stopped me and told me I smelled amazing and he just had to let me know. TELL ME MORE, SIR! I received a few more compliments on my scent during the two weeks that I tested it, and I am truly impressed. I mean, I literally sat outside for 30 minutes and just when I thought I smelled like a wet dog, someone stopped me to compliment my scent. In conclusion, Riddle Oil is amazing and ya girl has some dope pheromones. —Chantal Follins
