In the haze of high summer, we are exploring the elusive powdery effect created by various materials and molecules. Such powdery nuances can be a delightful bonus or the perfume's main event, creating an illusion of icy or warming, sparkling stardust.
A powdery perfume can feel as though you are spritzing yourself with a gentle powdery dust; at once refreshing and soothing. Be it the delicious pollen from the flower, the powder coming from a make-up case, puffs of detergent, or dust from an old book; it’s an imaginary effect that can feel very real.
'Powdery' can apply to all sorts of materials. Bask in the bitter-sweet dusty aroma of heliotrope, or a delectably clean and contemporary sprinkling of modern musk. Mimosas’ and narcissuses’ can proffer a honeyed powder, whilst the humble yet effective carrot seed gives a dry, antique and calming smell. And finally, the distinguished orris often conjures that vintage make-up air of classic Hollywood.
A sensual perfume with echoes of rose and violets. The curious powdery nuance is nostalgic of vintage 40s make-up, retained in our collective memories by the immutable force of our glamorous grandmas. It conjures the delectable scene of a Hollywood starlet draped in red silk sipping a Bellini.
This is a nebulous floral composed of many flowers with a honeyed powdery edge: mimosa, narcissus, heliotrope and orange blossom.
