Ciel Fragrance Reviews

As already stated in the comments this one is a mix of vanilla pudding and baby powder. I love powdery vanila fragrances so Ciel is a perfect choice for me. It reminds me of myself when I was in a kindergarten. It really bring back memories of being a kid. Such a nice delicate comfy scent.

Comfort in a bottle! And strangely elegant as well....

I get a faint whiff of Iris and Woods to complement the primary note of rose powder and non sweet vanilla.

Yes, there's a distinct baby powder aura, but the scent is in no way straight up talc! That said, those who hate powder should definitely avoid Ciel. Those of us who adore traditional powdery fragrances have found a treasure.

Other fragrances in this same general category include Sweet Honesty ( clean and fresh by comparison, with a lemony opening ) and Ombre Rose. Lutece it resembles somewhat, yet lacks the powerhouse, pungent undertone Lutece has. Overall, the closest scent association for me would be Ombre Rose, but YOU decide!

On sniffing me, a friend mentioned that Ciel has a YELLOW powder aura. I completely agree! Perhaps a touch of ylang ylang, the listed amber, or the vanilla pudding base mentioned? Whatever it is, the results are clearly understated comfort and elegance.

I must complement the nose who created Ciel. How often does one find a bargain basement treat redolent of chic restraint and palpable good taste?

Top notch! :D

I had it when I was 16. It's rather beautiful, soft, powdery... It reminds me spring and when snow melts. Love it!

Holy smoke... This is one of the best comfort scent I have smelt... It is just plain, simple and beautiful. Beautiful iris with sweet powdery base. Thanks a million to briarthorn for the decant!!!

This is a powdery dream; it is everything the notes say--powdery iris in a sweet rosy musk with a hint of vanilla. It's very similar to Lutece, or like a powdery Marshmallow Mor. Longevity is at least 5 hours in me, sillage moderate to strong but not in an overwhelming way. Very nice.

I love it. It doesn't remind me of vanilla pudding or baby powder. It reminds me of a classic fragance, one that can't go wrong because it's simple and timeless. It's the mixture of woody+powdery+vanille-y+floral what gives it that classic feel. I can imagine this perfume on the dressing table of a lady from 1925. It is powdery but in a nice way, like vintage face powder. And the vanilla isn't nauseating or too sweet as in an Yves Rocher perfume.
My mother absolutely, totally, intensely hates anything that smells "eatable" (she used to complain a lot about my teenage fragances and say that they smelled like flavoured yoghurts and candy and that she wouldn't put them on for all the gold in the world). However, she did purchase this perfume. I think that goes to show that it isn't all that sweet!
To me, Ciel proves that you don't need to spend lots of dollars on a perfume for it to be nice and elegant. It's not VERY long-lasting (or else I grow used to it after a while), but then again, some expensive perfumes wear off soon too. This one is also very affordable.
What can I say. I just love it!

Soft, comforting, creamy and not too sweet. Prototype of a vanilla-powder fragrance. I receive compliments when I wear it and the price is unbeatable.

Sometimes I'm in the right mood to wear fragrances like this, that make me feel calm and relaxed...as I was a child, and used the baby powder after the bath! Cielo is a powdery-but not too powdery fragrance: it has more similarities with Talco delicato by I profumi di firenze than Teint de neige by Villoresi; I can also notice a bit of vanilla and a touch of rose. I find it also somehow similar to Soft musk by Avon, another simple, confortable fragrance that I love!

You want to know what Ciel smells like? Ok here we go:

Go to the bathroom and grab a large package of babypowder, now move on to the kitchen and fix some vanilla pudding, pay attantion to go really heavy on the vanilla. Now put the vanilla pudding on your wrist, and dust it really generously with the baby powder, voilá that's Ciel...
