    it's a soft face-powder type note, as well as baby-powder.
    it's coming mostly from certain musks, iris (orris) and violets molecules (ionones), anisole, and some other molecules/oils as well.

    To all the ones mentioned, I should add Dana's British Sterling. I know, I know, it is a drugstore cheapie with negative reviews but, believe me, I enjoy talcum powder-like notes and this one is powdery in that sense. Not lasting though.

    Another one that has not been mentioned is Fragonard's Zizanie, somehow a restrained version of Jaipur with spicy topnotes reminiscing of Old Spice.

    I definitely second Pollux's and perfaddict's suggestions of Zizanie by Fragonard and Royal Copenhagen. Lagerfeld Classic also fits the bill, but I personally would only wear it in the coldest of weather. does Lagerfeld Classic work in the tropical heat?

    I found the "official" notes for Rouge Royal for men: "lavender, geranium, amalfi lemon, resin, cardamom, cinnamon, white honey, sandalwood and virginia cedar."

    Then I wore it yesterday. It is basically a highly blended powdery honey scent. The spices, wood, geranium, lavender, etc. are at best a bare hint. KISS Him features "amber crystals," and that note is very similar, just not powdery. Instead, there is clear cumin, anise, and lavender in KISS Him.

    I think Snafoo is referring to Jockey Club in this post.

    I am the opposite and don't like powdery scents. I thought Bvlgari Blv was super powdery. So much so that I couldn't like it even though I wanted to. The same could be said for Geir Ness.

    Kenzo Power is also powdery, but I'm kind of digging it.

    I can't imagine of anything being more powdery than this.
