I don’t swing that way, but I would try for you or I’d find you gorgeous young men to keep you happy if that’s your preference, I promise, especially if you would keep me in Eau Blanche de Iunx and then put it in my laundry detergent and shampoo, car freshener. My world in its entirety should smell like this, and then I promise I will be happy forever and never complain about bad drivers, crappy perfumes or the price of milk.
White linen, orris butter and teak wood are the notes listed on Denyse’s review from 2008. This is one of the original line that has been re-introduced. I think they have six of the original scents back in production and intend to eventually have all ten (?) for sale. They are still only available in Paris at Hotel Costes, I believe.
Blanche is everything great about linen – pressed linen with steam. If you never thought you’d want to smell a “clean” scent or one that smells like laundry, try this one before you pitch them all over the perfume cliff. If there is one exception to the whole clean perfume denouement (wishful thinking on my part, I know), this is the one I’d make. It’s sun, steam, linen. It lasts surprisingly long on me, not what I was expecting, thinking it would blow off pretty fast.
I like surprises in perfume, and they are few and far between at my advanced Perfumismic Age, so when one that fits into an area that I’m not crazy about and lasts longer in a really beautiful way than I expect, it’s love. I wish she’d decide to sell in one location in the U.S. or just one in Europe that would ship.
