white magic embraces the soul
"You walked into my Heart like you always belonged there, took down my Walls and lit my Soul on Fire!"

This did "White" by Puredistance already years ago and probably, just because of its powderiness, this fire has not burned out in the meantime, but is still smoldering to flare up brightly again at present!

In the summer of 2015, I met "White" and was immediately taken by its white, caressing the soul tenderness. Why did I forget about him?
There was probably too much distraction in my life, too many fragrances that pushed their way in and didn't always do me any good either; but now is the right time to nurture the soul and thus free "White" from its quasi-forgetfulness.
Amazingly, this bottling is still fine: nothing has changed - a more faithful fragrance friend, then: more faithful than I deserve!

The opening by the bergamot fresh note is only brief.
Quickly, the fragrant, so lovely May rose, finally rediscovered, spreads its arms wide. She embraces me, before a whole group of proud and powdery noble iris unlocks: they also want to protect and guard me, show me their affection fragrantly.
Defense of all evil by the eagerly brandished iris fragrance powder puff! Hach!
How lovely is this! A soft, cuddly, warm scent cloak envelops me.
This cuddly scent is further condensed by tonka bean scent aroma, making the embrace a little more loving and intense, protective.
And of course, with so much warming and protective fragrance fullness musk may not be missing.
Aphrodite caresses and coos me, before giving way to the languid and heavy patchouli creature in the golden and brown scent flow.
Of course, if Aphrodite is already here now, she doesn't come empty-handed: according to her, the patchouli magic also includes a few drops of the creamy sandalwood oil.
So the protective white caress gets little dark brown shiny thorns; not hurtful: rather reminding that nothing is infinite - not even the power of the soul-flatterer "White".
Vetiver clearly indicates that cuddle time is also part of reality and thus not to be spent only on soft, white clouds!
A dark green, earthy reminder that head and soul can not constantly float in the clouds!
(A green poison dwarf is this fragrance! - But of course he's right; it's true!)

This soul-flatterer stays by my side for many hours, and then only slowly and quietly leaves its place!
Nothing is loud, restless or exciting with "White": here reigns the security - "all in white"!
Certainly not a fragrance for "living happily ever after": fairy tales do not exist!

But there is Puredistance's soul-flatterer "White": light-footed, delicate and timelessly elegant.
In short: a woman-understanding with magic scent-hands!

The sweetness of flowers
This is one of the BEST sweet & flowery perfume i have tried. Innthe middle a mis ofnflower with roses and iris, so very powdery. This flowers are over a sweet basement of sandalwood and tonka Bean, with some Green creamyness due to the vetiver. To the dry down the musk get more influence giving a very long Life to the fragance.
The performance is good, very good longevity and moderate projection. It leans a bit more femenine although i feel good wearing It, but if you are a man i recommend you to try It. Weareable for daily time but also a bomb for nightime.

A scent of happiness
Once upon a time there was a far, far away kingdom in which fields were covered in roses, the sky was always blue and every single man or woman would have golden hair and opalescent white skin. The kingdom's name was Puredistance and the people living in it were called Whitesians. The sun was always shining in the kingdom of Puredistance and people were always smiling.
The Whitesians had no worries and their world was filled with love and joy, but in order to preserve this bliss, once a month a Whitesian had to travel outside the Puredistance kingdom's gates in order to fulfill someone's dream of happiness. That was not an easy task, as ordinary humans easily gave up their dreams and wishes and were often feeling sad or angry.
The big day came for Beatrix and she was ready to go out there, in the big, intricate world and make someone happy. She had her long, golden hair embellished with roses and her lips curved in a generous smile.
The gates of Puredistance opened and she stepped outside, nervous but also excited to start the adventure. After a while, she found the sad human being whom she must make happy again: a girl, named Deidre who was sitting on a bench, sobbing, with her shoulders moving up and down. Beatrix, who, like every Whitesian, was invisible for ordinary humans, seated next to the girl and with her white, warm fingers, wiped the tears falling from Deirdre's eyes. The girl stopped crying, and for a moment she felt around her the most magnificent perfume ever: a warm and inviting rose scent, mixed with a soapy and clean sandalwood note. Her watery eyes became wider as she was looking beside her hoping to see where did the wonderful smell came from, but she saw nobody.

Beatrix hair started to shine brighter spreading the heavenly scent all over the place, absorbing all the sadness from Deirdre's heart. The Whitesian came closer to the girl and embraced her, softly singing the song of happiness.

Suddenly Deirdre was feeling better and began to remember all the good things in her life. A shy smile was begining to rise from within her heart. She closed her eyes and the perfume that was spreading around her started to feel more and more creamier. Deidre felt the need to take her shoes off, she wanted to feel the ground under her feet and just let go of all the worries. Suddenly an earthy hint of orris began to tickle her nostrils. She felt like the earth was absorbing her sadness and then, Deirdre felt free and...happy. She began to dance, like nobody was watching, like all her dreams could come true in an instant.
Beatrix was proud. Her misunderstood human was happy now. Her mission was accomplished. She laughed, flicking her locks of hair, spreading the perfume of happines around her once more and kissed Deirdre's cheeks. It was time to go back to Puredistance kingdom.

Deirdre opened her eyes and just for a moment, she thought she saw a glimpse of golden hair, leaving a perfumed trail behind...
This is Puredistance WHITE to me, a complex, life-changing perfume by wich I would love to be surrounded every single day.

Playing "Hide&Seek"-WHITE Puredistance
WHITE is different right from the beginning from the rest of Puredistance perfumes by simplicity in the way it was built, it does not have the rich structure of Antonia, M or Puredistance I . It s simple but in a very sophisticated way, being an example of “less is more” in perfumery.
I can easily say that WHITE is one of the most elegant summer fragrances. It starts on my skin in the first minutes with a clean scent of white musk surrounded by crispy cool bergamot /citrus and a hint of patchouli , then in short time , this composition turns fruity having a lemon sorbetto & limoncello note while the white musk disappears (for some time ). At this moment the rose signals it’s presence joining the sorbetto & limoncello note enhancing the fruitiness of the composition. This phase of WHITE reminds me a little bit of MFK’s Acqua Universalis Forte.

After the first hour the lemon sorbetto starts turning into a creamy vanilla citrus ice cream, the fruity tone being replaced by the powdery iris and by warm tonka note with shades of vanilla and heliotrope but not too sweet, please do not think that’s close to the latest Guerlain releases, it’s miles away. Santal is to blame for the soft milky note, that according to the company is sourced from Mysore, so we are talking about the real stuff. A simplistic composition but made with the best ingredients.

From this stage WHITE will not change a lot. The santalwood will become more present after two hours, lending more creaminess and a luxury feeling to the entire composition, the ice cream is melting on hot skin.

After 5-6 hours the clean musk re appears on my skin and bringing WHITE back to the white musk land where everything is white and clean and no emotions. It’s like the white musk is playing a “hide and seek” game on skin, appearing and disappearing from time to time.

The fragrance has an outstanding longevity for a simple summer fragrance, more than 8 hours, the silage is average which is easily expected from a perfume with a 38% fragrance oil.It ‘s difficult for me to say where is the place of WHITE: is it a clean white musk perfume or is it cool crispy summer woody fragrance? If is not clear yet if we have here a musky scent or not, what’s sure is the feeling: it makes me feel good, not really the “flow of happiness” as it was expected but I like it.

WHITE Is that kind of scent that is easy to pick in the morning when you are in a rush and you don’t have time enough to make up your mind about what perfume you want to wear on that day from your scent collection or when outside is a very hot summer day and you dress accordingly but you still want to be elegant .
