Happy hump day. I can't believe the week is almost over. Contrary to many of you, I'd rather have it longer since I don't have lectures this week. Ah, good times are soon over. The problems on blog front goes on. I would like to write again, in case you are having any problems seeing the content please let me know.
Recently Narciso Rodriguez added a third fragrance to Narciso line. I have previously reviewed Narciso EdP here and Narciso EdT here. The former being gardenia&rose and the latter peony take on to the signature musky heart. The new fragrance Narciso Poudrée Eau de Parfum is yet an interesting creation. It has to be my favourite among the three. So much for spoilers, onto the thoughts...

Narciso Poudrée Eau de Parfum comes in a pink beige flacon, the shape being kept the same as the original but it has tiny tweaks in details such as the metal sprayer being rose gold other than silver. I have previously shared my thoughts on this very modern and minimalistic bottle, I simply love it. If you would see the decoration of my living room, you would understand why. My cupboards fixed to the wall look like this bottle and I searched for them over a year until I found an Italian custom furniture maker which does these. I love how the colour already indicates a powdery feeling before I take it in my hand to spray. The notes are provided as follows:
Bulgarian Rose, Jasmine, Orange Blossom
Vetiver, Cedar, Coumarin, Patchouli

What about a little powder? I like powdery scents myself when they are not overpow(d)ering. I find the original Narciso EdP to be a lovely musk perfume I especially enjoy during Fall. It has a dryness to it so I need to be in mood to wear it, it is definitely unique and nothing like the mainstream syrupy floral/ sweet fruity designer fragrances. Narcissi juices are all pleasantly woody and musky, aaah, love. But then again, EdT version was a little easier to wear, yet dryness was there. Right in time when I was thinking if they could make it warmer, a little less clean to cut its dry edges a little for us to enjoy its gorgeous heart while bringing it closer to being a body scent, they came up with Narciso Poudrée Eau de Parfum.
Jasmine definitely adds a sensual body like feeling while coumarin makes it less clean, more earthy compared to the original. Narciso Poudrée is insanely long wearing. Just a spray and you can smell it 12 hours later on your skin, an impressive performance. As much as I believe it is not a summer fragrance, I think it is one of the best designer perfumes released recently. Definitely make sure to check it out.

Final thoughts: A light powdery woody feminine fragrance which lasts and lasts, to me Narciso Poudrée Eau de Parfum is the best version of Narciso series so far. Two thumbs up for one of the most interesting and alluring designer releases of the last months.
Are you in game for a little powder?
