Basenotes - "A bedroom fragrance. Smells like freshly moisturised, clean, feminine skin. Powdery, pink and pretty, not at all either prim or vampy, rather it's warm, soft, inviting and yielding. Narciso Poudree covers you in plump-lipped kisses and never uses her teeth."
Basenotes - "So, sure, it is a pinky haze of powderpuff musks but it’s so fatally well-engineered, I have to succumb. The trick is in the florals enclosed within the feathery musks – if one puts one’s nose close to one’s skin there’s a gorgeous trickle of nectarous rose, sparkling almost, not cloying, complemented and shaded in by an almost suede-like jasmine note. There’s also something woody that’s been milled to a cosmetics grade fineness. Knowing these elements nestle within Narciso Poudreé’s enveloping, sweet musks, helps one appreciate why it is just that bit different to the many other perfumes doing the fantasy princess via soft musks thing. But ultimately it’s just a question of wearing the thing and feeling like being carried away by a gently ascending series of lalalas."
Fragrantica - "Most soft, feminine and easily wearable powder I’ve ever sniffed! Its scent is delicate and slightly sweet like macaroons, yet it’s so airy and balanced! It smells clean but it’s far from sharp, it’s cute and sweet but never juvenile, it can be worn casually but it’s still very classy and sophisticated. Love at first sniff!"
Fragrantica - "This is my first Narciso fragrance that I blind bought after reading reviews and my first impressions are that this is quintessentially the definition of "soft and feminine". The wafts of scent I get from this throughout the day are really pleasant. It feels fuzzy, warm and sweet. No sharp florals here. Just really really cozy. If you want a fragrance that feels like a nice warm hug with a hint of sweetness without any sharp edges, this is it."
