The nice people at Puredistance sent me a sample of their latest, White. On their website, they describe it thusly “The main idea behind the creation of Puredistance WHITE Perfume has been to create a perfume so beautiful and positive that it gives the wearer an instant flow of happiness.”
Well, there you are. Did they succeed? If you like aquatic perfumes you will be completely in thrall with White. Even I, who loathe that note like a vampire loathes garlic, have to admit that like all of this houses perfumes, it’s beautifully done. After the watery opening, it gets a little sweet on my skin, at which point I went and frankly washed it off.
I tried. I appreciate that White is beautifully made and very lovely, but it is so not me it’s not even funny. Like offering my L.L. Bean wearing self Michelle Obama’s Kenzo dress to wear out not me. I love their darker fragrances like Black and M. If I win Powerball I’m totally scooping those up..
But maybe it’s you? If you live in the continental US I am offering to ship the (quite full) remainder of the sample of White to one commenter chosen by random.org.
Notes: (from Puredistance) Rose de Mai from France, Tonka bean absolute from Venezuela, Orris absolute from Italy, Sandalwood from Mysore, Bergamot from Italy, Musk, Vetyver from Haiti and Patchouli from Indonesia.
Puredistance is carried at Luckyscent, so I assume they will have this soon. They also have on their website a page that lists all the other stores carrying them. I received an email from Puredistance that since the exchange rate is more favorable, they have adjusted their prices down 20%, which they should be congratulated for. It is now $170 for 17.5ml, $295 for 60ml and $540 for 100ml.
Winner of the draw will be announced in next week’s post. (Drawing is closed)
