Neiges is such a smooth, long-lasting scent that never gets cloying nor changes its character over time. I find it to be a balanced version of, say, Hugo Boss Soul, but with a shimmering, fresh quality that I never tire of. Very highly recommended, if you can try a sample spritz somewhere as it is very hard to find at fragrance kiosks. (Lastly, I see a BIG resemblance to Calvin Klein's Eternity for Men...not a bad thing at all. ;^>)

I havent seen much talk about Lise Watier fragrances, but it never stopped me from wearing, and loving, Neiges. Its one of the most versatile scents I have. It is light and fresh enough to wear during the summer, yet I can still wear it in the winter without feeling too ''cold''. I feel like the opening kinda resembles the one of Platinum Egoiste, but the dry-down is a bit crisper. Projection for 1-2 hours is pretty strong, and after that it becomes a very seductive skin scent. A must try frag if you can find it.
The notes that strike me as dominant here are cypress coupled with violet. It is crisp, green and a little sweeter than I would like. I detect a bitter note in the opening that offsets the sweetness, but it really detracts from the scent. The bitterness goes away, the green remains. No real projection here; it stays close to the skin. I can’t really get offended by something I have to work at smelling (not usually at least). After a few hours, musk emerges and it is pleasant, but again no real projection. So-so at best.

I bought this scent for myself and I think it's more of a unisex rather than a masculine fragrances - it's delicately fresh and crisp but with aromatic floral undertones and the elegance of a swirling snowflake :). After a few hours you can definitely smell some solid undertones - amber, musk and sandalwood, as the description says - but they're not overwhelming.
I like the scent, it's very similar to Animale
