    Default What male fragrances come to mind when you think of a texture: soft

    What is a soft fragrance to you?

    Is it how light it is?

    Is it because of notes? Soft sandalwood? Soft amber?

    I suppose soft could mean two different things. Soft projection might be an aftershave or Eau de Cologne type fragrance. Soft could also be the note itself. Any fragrance that has that fabric softner vibe smells soft to me. Usually, it's a certain type of lavender note that reminds me of fabric softner.

    Especially Dior Homme plus flankers, mainly due to the smoothness of its iris but also cocoa, vanilla notes.
    Same with Endymion EDC, this time mainly due to the creamy feel of lavender, again cocoa, sage, mocha, very suavely blended together.

    Original Dior Homme to me is the type of fragrance that i would describe has a 'soft' texture.

    I find many aquatic fragrances as being "soft".

    It’s like becoming a pillow or being covered by pillows of fluffy soft vanilla, lavender and sandalwood custard with a dash of liquorice and almonds.

    It is incredibly alluring, almost hypnotising, and if I were ever to smell it out in the wild, I fear it would enthrall me and draw me in like soft siren song, blanketing me with calming softness and putting me in a trance.

    An olfactory drug.

    Infusion d'Homme

    Clean with no sharp edges. That smooth and powdery iris.

    Excellent review, I recently bought a 60ml have not wore it yet but from smelling the sprayer it’s a solid fragrance for sure.

    A fragrance with fluffy musk.
    The fluffy musk soften everything. It's diffusive.






    Chanel - Coromandel it has fluffy musk, it's soft.
    But unfortunately it also has a linen-detergent musk, which I hate.
    Anyway, it's very good.
