Topic: What smells like powder? Looking for powdery perfumes..

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for a perfume that smells like powder. Not baby powder, but the kind you use to touch up your makeup. I already have Love, Chloe and I love it but I want to add to my collection... any recommendations?

Re: What smells like powder? Looking for powdery perfumes..

hmm, well i find that http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.87.jpg Elizabeth Arden Red Door Revealed smeels similar to that of cosmetics, but i wouldn't say it was so much powdery,
http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1709.jpg Elizabeth Taylor Passion starts out quite strong but eventually dies down to a nice powder scent. i'd go with http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.3973.jpg Jean Charles Brosseau Ombre Rose L'Original  its is indeed powdery, but not in the baby way.

Yes, it is a men's fragrance. Its notes are quite shockingly similar to pressed cream eyeshadow and lipsticks, though.

I think http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.11360.jpg Guerlain Shalimar Parfum Initial smells like lipstick and and antique rose scented face powder.

I'm not normally a fan of powdery, but I like http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1795.jpg Prada Infusion d'Iris and http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.3531.jpg Bath and Body Works Moonlight Path .

I find your lack of perfume disturbing.

Re: What smells like powder? Looking for powdery perfumes..

For me, many perfumes with violet and/or iris tend to smell powdery.

is the most velvety, heavenly, dreamily powdery scent I've come across. I know some people do get baby powder from it, but I think that's sort of a knee-jerk reaction to powdery scents in general. To me it's elegant, gorgeous and very grown-up. I definitely don't get baby powder from it - I wouldn't love it if I did. This is sophisticated stuff, and a far cry from Johnson's.

Its more transparent and more affordable but every bit as powdery doppelganger is
