Topic: Soft, baby powdery/musk perfume??

I have spent countless hours searching for my perfect perfume with a baby powdery, white musky, soft scent.
I love that soft baby fresh scent but the perfumes I try are either too floral or too old lady-ish.
I use to love to wear "Heart Awakened" by Aura Science, but that is now LONG gone. I've been wearing "White Musk" by The Body Shop but still find something missing.
Any Suggestions?


I've tried "Baby Powder" by Demeter, "Baby" by Harajuku Lovers, "Baby Touch" by Burberry, "Petits et Mamans" by Bvlgari, "Cashmere Mist" by Donna Karan.

Thanks so much for your help!

I don't think that this is a baby powder scent per se (yes it is very powdery & "white" like a cloud, & there is a play-doh kiddy link there) but I've had many people ask what is the name of the baby powder scent that I'm wearing.....Kenzo Amour!

What was wrong with the other baby-powder scents you tried? glad

Swaps? Decants? Check my wardrobe

There's nothing wrong with the scents I've tried.  I guess I'm suffering from a "grass is greener on the other side" syndrome.  Always looking for my "it" scent.  http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/roll.png

Re: Soft, baby powdery/musk perfume??

I know what you mean! ;p

I meant to ask what aspects are/aren't you finding in the other baby-powder scents that you are searching for in your dream scent?

To clarify: the baby-powder found in Shalimar after 2 hrs is very different from that in Amour or Flower or Petit et Mamans to my nose...but people always talk of them as baby powder scents! http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/hmm.png

Have you tried http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.2313.jpg Avon Sweet Honesty? Has a soft powdery scent, but is grounded w/ a nice musk.

I was also thinking of suggesting http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1795.jpg Prada Infusion d'Iris. The iris gives a sort of powdery aspect with the cedar & incense offering nice depth.

Faith Hill has a new perfume out that's VERY powdery.  I smelled lots of baby powder and flowers in it. I didn't care for it much, but you might like it. http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/glad.png

Re: Soft, baby powdery/musk perfume??

Ava Luxe does several musks that are wonderfully powdery and light. See if you can hunt down Angel Face by Ava Luxe -- I think that one is supposed to be especially good in the light, powdery, musky vein.

I don't find it especially powdery per se, but it's a lovely floral, skin musk, to me.

Have you tried http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.496.jpg Donna Karan Cashmere Mist
It's definitely got more of the powder going on and, as is characteristic of Karan fragrances, not your run-of-the-mill dept. store frag.

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.487.jpg Dolce&Gabbana D&G Feminine
I haven't worn this one myself, but from what I hear, it's exactly what you're describing--"powdery, white musky, soft."

and I just recently got somehttp://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.54.jpg Guerlain Shalimar Legere  which I find very powdery and soft.  In fact, I'm pretty much addicted to this stuff.  Hmm, may not be any musk tho - I need to recheck the notes.

Good luck - let us know what you find!  http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/wink.png

Oops - just noticed you'd already tried the Cashmere Mist. 
"Nevermind."  http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/vissla.gif

But do try that Dolce and Gabbana - I think that could work for you. http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/glad.png

Re: Soft, baby powdery/musk perfume??

Hi there!

It looks like we are on the same quest! I wear baby lotion all the time and wanted a fragrance that could go well with it. Here are my suggestions:

Have you tired Cashmere mist EDP or EDT? I had both and prefer EDP. Love the deodorant too!

I love Shalimar, I had both EDP and EDT and both have a vanilla/baby powder drydown.


I'll keep an eye on this subject as I am curious to see what are be the other suggestions!

Re: Soft, baby powdery/musk perfume??

Love's baby soft was the first thing I thought of from your description. Also, Musc Samarkand by Les Neriedies or Talco Delicato by I Profumi di Firenze. All are very powdery in the baby powder sense, though only the last reminds me outright of baby products: It's a lot like baby oil.

I know of the PERFECT fragrance for you, but it is not a designer scent....it is actually one of those body oils (which I buy a lot of).  I bought mine from someone on ebay and it is called Snowy Musk.   Ahhhh....it is sooo beautiful and is a soft powdery musk.  I love, love, love it, especially for those jeans/t-shirt days or for bedtime.
