Oriental Mystery and Parisian Chic: Puredistance Sheiduna

Puredisance call themselves “Master Perfumers” and that’s not a misnomer. They have several that I adore (even if I cannot presently afford them) like the rich M and the delightful Opardu. While expensive, you can tell that the money goes into the ingredients and that there are no compromises in bringing out the best they can make.

New to the line is Sheiduna, which they write of as “Puredistance will launch its latest perfume: Puredistance SHEIDUNA.

puredistance-sheiduna-persian-artwork-ho07SHEIDUNA is a rich and intense Perfume inspired by the panoramic views and feel of golden sand dunes in the desert during sunset – soft, female curves changing from deep gold to warm, orangey red – embodying a promise of sensual comfort and silent seduction.” With notes such asCitruses, Aldehydes Rose, Geranium, cloves, Tonka, Vanilla and musk, this delivers on the promise.

Would I wear it? Probably not- it’s just not me. You know who would have just adored it, reveled in it and if she could, bathe in it? My late friend Lynn, who had her funeral here this morning. It would have been just the sort of thing that was right up her alley.

I don’t know the pricing yet for Sheiduna, but I am assuming it will be in the ballpark of the rest of their line: somewhere around $190 for 17.5 ML, $325 for 60 ML and $600 for 100 ML. My sample was provided by Puredistance. I assume it will be available at their website soon. Image from their website.

    Sorry to hear about your friend Tom.
    I would love to get a sniff of the recent Puredistance scent, as i have loved most of the others. It does have a very high price point though 🙁

    The question marks were added by my infant. Sorry!

    May your friend’s memory be a blessing to her family and friends. Be gentle with yourself. ??

    I’m very sorry for your loss, Tom. It’s amazing how perfumes can have a sort of holographic quality of summoning an image of a person or place to us that seems even more vivid than the reality that surrounds us. I’ve been caught short many times by a fragrance that people I loved once wore or by something I know they would have liked. I think it’s a sign of a great perfume when you get swept along in its emotional currents.

    I’m a huge fan of Puredistance! I got a sampler set from them, and fell in love with both White and Black. Both are so ALIVE. They seem to shift slightly all the time you are wearing them…just wonderful. I can’t afford a full bottle, but if I ever can, I’ll have a helluva time choosing between them. Now I simply MUST get a sample of the new one…sounds delightful!
