Thread: Powdery

  1. #1

    Default Powdery

    I have come to the conclusion that I love powdery scents. I adore Armani Code and Dior Homme, as well as Buberberry Brit for men. What scents are similar to these? Are there some powdery scents that can be used in summer as well?

    Helmut Lang (edt or edp) is the first thing that comes to mind when I hear powder. As far as summer use, I've always found Burberry Touch has worked well for me in the summer. If you want powder overload, try Villoresi's Teinte de Neige.

    I enjoy spicy powdery scents myself. I think they work just as well in summer, but you may wish to vary applications accordingly. Try some of these:-

    Arpege pour Homme by Lanvin
    Jaipur Homme by Boucheron
    Play by Givenchy
    Jacomo de Jacomo Rouge by Jacomo
    Touch by Burberry
    Shalimar by Guerlain

    Penhligon's Racquets Formula. Soapy, fresh, powdery yet refreshing. Moderately sweet.

    Kenzo Power. Not overly powdery, but just enough to keep it light.

    Miller Harris Fleur Oriental. Baby Powder in liquid form. It would work well in warmer months as even though it is an oriental, it goes for a light musk base instead of a heavy amber.

    FUBU Plush for Men is a "must have" if you like strong powdery frags.

    +1 Amouage Reflection. This works excellently in the summer heat, too. I love powdery scents and Reflection Man is probably my favorite of all time.

    Some other good ones:
    Prada Amber (better in cooler weather, though)
    Fleur du Male (ok w/ light application in all but the hottest of weather)
    Armani Diamonds (similar to code but a bit more woody and chocolatey)
    ***For sale:

    Iris Pallida 50ml

    Ungaro I 75ml

    and more!

    PS By Paul Sebastian fits that bill well & so does Lagerfeld Classic.

    If you like Code and Homme, you will probably NOT like Caswell-Massey, but powdery it is. Classic barbershop powder, very much in the Old Old School style (it was released in 1840).

    Rouge Royal for men is another. I was never able to find the notes, but my guess is orris/iris, pepper, benzoin, star anise, and vanilla. There may be a little bit of a melon note too, and there is some spice as well (at least one person thinks it is cinnamon).

    Dior Cologne Blanche dries down to the most delicious powdery sweet note. I'm loving it in the hot Texas sun!

    Jaipur Homme is the most powdery I've ever owned. I found a bit heavy for summer, but try it.

    Jaipur Homme by Boucheron is probably the most powdery scent that I have ever worn, and yes it can be worn in Summer if, and only if applied in moderation.
    Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....

    +1 to Prada Amber and Fleur du Male

    while I love Dior Homme, I find the sweetness gets to me a little.

    I've been using Santa Maria Novella Melograno, which has a bit of a powdery soapy fruity thing going on.
