French niche line Olfactive Studio has launched Lumière Blanche:
A mild and enveloping perfume, Lumière Blanche is a comforting cocoon, between milky mildness and cold spices. It evokes the sweltering heat from the sun at the zenith, which erases colors, leaving only a blinding white hue; it surprises with its spicy freshness. For its creator, “Lumière Blanche is a fragrance with beautifully contrasting hot and cold notes”; a whirlwind of light and freshness followed by milky mildness and a distinct, warm, and sensual end note.
Lumière Blanche was developed by perfumer Sidonie Lancesseur; notes include cardamom, star anise, cinnamon, iris, almond milk, cashmere woods, cedarwood, sandalwood, tonka bean and white musks.
Olfactive Studio Lumière Blanche is available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum.

Thanks for the tip. Let's hope this is not as dull as the other fragrances from this house...

This sounds so nice. Spicy, milky, cool. Yum!
Sounds interesting but I must admit my interest wanes every time I read white musk in fragrance notes.
I bought it today. Very interesting as a concept of 'contrast'. Scentwise, it is like they took SL 'Jeaux de Peau' and poured almond milk through it and then let it dry in the wind. A bit too fleeting, but that's part of the beauty.
Oh that description sounds delicious dianabi - thanks!
Wearing it today - I can't believe how light it is. I need to wear it again but this morning I applied + 7 sprays from that tiny 2 ml manufacturer atomizer and it was almost undetectable a couple hours later.
I was also disappointed with a few blogs like Cafleurbon that gave Lumiere Blanche excellent reviews saying it had above average longevity and projection. So not true.
I sampled because Octavian raved about this house. This is a no nothing house with ultra light scents with no lasting power. Super disappointment to my nose.
Well, there are certain scents in this kind of category that historically I have smelled almost 'nothing' the very first time I smelled it and then later on I smelled it very clearly (and fell in love with): L'Eau d'Hiver, Apres l'Ondee, Hermessence Osmanthe Yunnan and others come to mind. Still...this one becomes 'invisible' very quickly.
Lumière Blanche is highly concentrated: 15% (with the best raw materials from Robertet), but this kind of creamy milky iris-sandalwood fragrances are more intimate (a white cocoon) than overwhelming... It also depends how you react to musks.
Hope that you will like another fragrance from the brand!

Finished my sample of this today. Yeah...it's lightly perceptible after about an hour. There's just not enough to hold onto my interest.
Actually have had a very experience with this house in general including this one.
