A chypre fragrance
POWDERBLOOM / Eau de Parfum
Top note / The opening of the perfume playfully reveals light top notes that consist of fresh, green Bergamot, aromatic Angelica Root, and calming Chamomile in beautiful harmony with spiritual, balsamic Frankincense and seductive Ylang Ylang.
Middle note / The first impression of POWDERBLOOM carries the senses to the perfume’s flirtatious middle, where precious Bulgarian Rose, Rose Geranium, decadent Linden Flower, and Neroli reveal sensual, warm middle notes.
Base note / An enigmatic, deep base majestically rounds off the perfume with rustic, earthy, amber notes from Labdanum Resin, and sweet notes of Cedarwood.
The perfume is completed by fragrance-enhancing aldehydes – a seductive spark that ignites POWDERBLOOM and makes it sparkle like champagne.
POWDERBLOOM Eau de Parfum – a chypre fragrance
// Chypre is pronounced ‘sheep·rah’ //
The chypre fragrance-family can be described as the essence of elegance. The scents are rich and sophisticated, yet delicate and understated with deep, warm and dry elements of seductive flowers, fruit, and wood.
Chypre fragrances are thought to date back to Roman times and are often mentioned in perfume manuals dating back to the 18th century. What is known for certain is that the fragrance family was made popular by François Coty in 1917, when he launched a ground-breaking scent named Chypre. The fragrance family is named after the island of Cyprus – the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love – known for its aromatic plants and chypre-scented flowers.
Spray the perfume on skin, hair or clothing. You can either choose to spray the perfume on the body's pulse points; elbow joints, wrists, back of the knees, and behind the ears, or you can spray a fan of perfume in the air and 'walk into the cloud', gently letting the fragrance fall on your skin. ...Or do as Coco Chanel said “spray your perfume where you want to be kissed.”
Ideally, perfume develops best on undisturbed skin, i.e. avoid rubbing wrists against each other and spray your perfume on bare skin before getting dressed. Wait 20-30 seconds to let the scent develop on your warm skin. A perfume is like a bouquet of flowers that needs to unfold, so if you have time, let the perfume rest on your bare skin for approx. 10 minutes before you get dressed to let it develop its full potential.
No two people have the same body chemistry and in the patient waiting game, you will meet you and the fragrances true, harmonious identity.
