The measure of all things Narciso "high" Poudreé
I make no secret of the fact that even Narciso's women's fragrances fascinate me, first and foremost Narciso For Her Musc Collection. It is hard to describe the memories that are attached to it. I could only hint at it in my review of it. It's a tragedy that this fragrance is no longer available. What I would give to be able to give it to a friend again.
Since the Musc Collection has been off the market for women and also men, there are women and also men who have not lost their hope, who believe that Narciso will one day return to what contributed so enormously to his greatness. But maybe we're doing him an injustice, maybe it's been our own fault for five years now for not recognizing what else he's accomplished since 2009 - not just maybe, but definitely. And it's the same with, as I recently discovered to my shame, Eau de Parfum Poudreé.
The fragrance is a revelation, it grabbed me after a recent test like no other women's fragrance since Musc Collection. True, there was most recently Pure Musc, which has that earlier DNA noticeably inherent in it, and it was bought and is still worn today, though not by me. But it was also a constant painful reminder to me that the Musc Collection no longer existed, that Narciso seemed to have lost interest in what once defined him. Yet I was inattentive, blind, perhaps even stupid. After all, it had practically been sitting there like a perfectly wrapped present since 2016. How could I accuse Narciso of losing interest and his craft when I wasn't even capable of noticing a big Santa boot on the doorstep myself. That, and nothing else is Eau de Parum Poudreé, a gift that was a long time coming.
The first sniff at the atomizer and opening immediately after spraying disappoints me at first. It smells like this classic floral-sweet fragrance, which I have perceived quite often in the nineties, on my mother, on other mothers, no idea on whom else, every floral-sweet fragrance had to smell at that time apparently so. But from one moment to the next, this gift unpacks itself as if I should first be steered in the wrong direction, endure a feeling of disappointment for a short moment, only to experience this feeling.
It's like a cocktail of a syrup pressed from florally sweet rose and jasmine, which is soon mixed with the best vanilla shake and creamiest powder in the world, as well as the delicately woody and earthy-scented notes of vetiver and cedar resin. In between, I could have even sworn I smelled iris. Close at hand (the nose almost touches the hand), that aforementioned nineties sweetness comes through. But who cares, you don't go through the world with your hand under your nose after all. If I move my hand with about 10cm distance under my nose, any doubts disappear, everything fits together natlos.
A woman who wears this fragrance I would always throw a look. And is it then also still completely my type, my gaze would also no longer turn away so quickly from her.
Durability and sillage are immense. One perceives the fragrance even after twenty-four hours still on the hand. Accordingly, even a single spray is enough. But who likes this fragrance, that should be almost no matter and will certainly spray a second time.
Not for everyone, but for me Narciso Eau De Poudreé is the ingebriff of the powdery-sweet fragrance!
