Reviews of Poudre de Riz

I’ll take powder, yes please, great clouds of it, no problem. Old make up? Sometimes it too can float my boat, if well-executed. But hairspray? That usually doesn’t do it for me, bar the occasional gem like Tocade. Maybe it’s the acetone tendency that perfumes going down that route display.
Fortunately, Poudre de Riz’s off-putting hair varnish opening dissipates pretty quickly , yet the promised powder doesn’t materialize. Instead delicate, honeyed florals reveal themselves – a coochiecoo rose and little dabs of white floral something or other. Served on a cushion of musked-up honky tonka and vanilla. It’s subtle and sweet and won’t scare any horses – and by that same token a bit of a yawn. A shame, mainly due to its execution in pastels. Because there’s something right about this composition that gets me thinking that a gutsier approach to the same elements could have yielded stunning results.

It smells like a fruity tubereuse with some white floral accents. It's a beautiful pot-pourri that projects strongly and lasts for a great while. It's very different to anything else by parfumerie générale. Well worth buying a full bottle.

Contrary to deadidol's opinion, I really love this one. Yes its sweet and powdery - but that's why I love it. Its like wearing a cashmere sweater - its soft and comforting.
Makes me think of vanilla rice pudding.
I wish I could find hair products that smell like this ;-)

More disappointment from an exceptional perfumer.

Well, it's better than Vohina. It's not blaring obvious that it's coconut in that it sidesteps the chemical terrors that you might expect from the "coconut™" section of Bath and Body Works. The rice is subtle, and delicately floral, with sugary notes that are kept in check throughout. Yet it does open with the kind of shrill, sweet powder that invades a number of scents from this line. This opening settles fast into the understated coconut-floral heart, but just like others from the brand, it smells far too much like hair products to be taken seriously.

Pros: It's not going to rot your teeth.
Cons: Smells like hair products, again."
