This Fragrance Smells Like…
The musky, woody floral symphony opens with a hint of spice: pink pepper and nutty aldehyde which adds a subtle kick throughout the otherwise fresh cottony scent. Rose essence and patchouli make up the fragrance heart, creating an ethereal floral scent that is light with soft warmth. Cashmere woods and white musks add a light earthy feel, giving a depth to the light refreshing scent and an almost powdery dry down.
What’s The Story Behind This Scent?
Inspired by the calming and soft nature of the colour white, Patchouli Blanc is a poetic expression of florals and silky cashmere, emulating a pillowy soft cloud of white notes. The patchouli essence has been specially curated to use the sweetest, fresh floral elements of the scent to uplift the innocent yet alluring fragrance. Part of Van Cleef’s Collection Extraordinaire, the entire range is inspired by the beauty of nature, creating a unique spin on a natural note – in this instance patchouli.
