    Hi there cincy - welcome to basenotes!

    Lorenzo Villoresi Teint de Neige is my absolute favorite powdery scent, so much so that I almost overdosed on it wearing it as a bedtime fragrance every single night. It's luxurious, elegant and beautiful grown-up face powder, and that's what I love so much about it ...the knee-jerk reaction might say "baby powder" but don't you believe it - this stuff is not for babies. It is however smooth, snuggly and cuddly, but mostly it's gorgeous ...and powdery. The cream is also amazing.

    Love, Chloé is very powdery, a bit sweeter than I normally like, I think due to the heliotrope, but very graceful and lovely, and again, for ladies - "powder" to me does not and should not mean "baby powder" (I've said this before but I don't like baby powder scents, so that would be a certain deal-breaker for me.)

    Other powderies I like include Shalimar Parfum Initial, L'Heure Bleue, Chanel No22, Lancome Climat, L'Erbolario Ambraliquida and Iris (which is a Teint de Neige smell-alike), L'Artisan Safran Troublant, Rosine Rose Kashmirie and Poussière de Rose, classic Oscar de la Renta and Keiko Mecheri Loukhoum ...which oddly enough, I find more powdery than Loukhoum Eau Poudrée, but that's powdery, too...so is Loukhoum Parfum du Soir.

    Mmmmm ...powdery.
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality.

    I second this 100%
    !! (to jump in a female thread )

    My girlfriend owns Teint de Neige and it is how Evangeline describes it! Seductive and very delicious stuff, despite its powderyness! I love it on her!
    It is indeed very very strong and 1 or 2 sprays max is a must!
    My Top 10 : (In no particular order)

    - Dolce & Gabbana: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Paco Rabanne: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Loewe: Esencia/Pour Homme
    - Guerlain: Homme L'Eau Boisee
    - Pal Zileri: Cuoio
    - MPG: Santal Noble
    - Guerlain: Vetiver
    - Amouage: Jubilation XXV
    - Dior: Homme Intense
    - YSL: Kouros (Fraicheur)

    F. Malle Iris Poudre is my favorite, although Mrs. E mentioned L'Erbolario Iris, which ironically I find more powdery than Iris Poudre I generally do not like too much powder, but those two fit the bill nicely for me.
    Small lovely doses of powder in most of the Chanels due to the iris in many of them. Hence my facination with them

    Among ladies fragrances: Dior Addict, Coco Noir, L'Erbolario Iris, TF Black Orchid, just to name a few, since there are more powdery that I liked and might like again (the first two are technically more gourmand than powdery, but finally always dry down in a quite powdery manner)

    For gents: Pierre Cardin Iris Sauvage, the various Infusions by Prada, Dior DHI, Santos and Declaration by Cartier, Van Cleef&Arepels pour Homme, Caron pour un Homme, Penhaligons Endymion, even some isolated hints of powder in Knize Ten (same caveat as above also applies here, not all being 100% percent powdery, but again some of the spice, leather and/or gourmand notes etc. being either preceded by and/or leading up to a quite powdery impression)

    Default Re: Your favorite powdery scent?

    I've got a new powdery favourite- Molinard Chypre d'Orient, which dries down to be very reminiscent of the dry down of lots of old Dior scents.
