Reviews of White

There is one review of White.
Puredistance releases all of their compositions in extrait form only. This can be a good thing, because it gives peons like me a chance to experience high quality perfume extrait. It can also be an issue, because I think that some fragrances benefit from dilution: since alcohol promotes evaporation, it can provide structure and sillage.

I haven't tried any of the other Puredistance frags, but from this one it's easy to tell that they're working with excellent materials handled with expert care. The rose de Mai smells florist-shop fresh, and the Italian iris is appropriately rooty.

After that, however, it seems like the fragrance becomes muddled, and the tonka/musk/vetiver/patchouli notes (usually these are hard to miss) don't develop as they should. The Mysore sandalwood mentioned on the company's website mostly comes across as a textural element.

What I get instead is a creamy, earthly, slightly spicy . . . white floral that wears quite close to the skin. It wafts intermittently from my wrist as I'm writing. When it does, it's lovely--subtle, intriguing, fresh, and warm.

At this price, it ought to be. Neutral rating because the price should deliver intensity, legibility, sillage, or originality.
