I'm not one for floral or powdery scents, but something about this one really captured my attention. The top notes remind me exactly of a fresh snowfall, cool and crisp. The middle is quite powdery, but it works extremely well with my chemistry - it might not for some others. It doesn't smell too old or overpowering on me. The base is my favourite, it dries to a very warm and comforting scent. Smells like a winter's day, basically.
I love this! It's a very pretty, soft white floral that has something cool about it that really does make you think of snow! Plus the gorgeous snowflakes on the bottle, hello! It's a great alternative to the heavy, spicy, vanilla scents many of us like to wear in the winter. And it's Canadian! Woo-hoo! Her makeup line is gorgeous too, by the way. There are a lot of plum shades in her fall line, and they are just beautiful. The SA at London Drugs said they just saw the holiday line, she said "oooh, just wait til you see it!" I'm excited!
I smelled this scent while on vacation. To me, it is very delicate, soft and powdery--ultra feminine. I think it's one of the nicest scents in its price range. This is great to try if you like Donna Karan's Cashmere Mist--both have that soft, comforting quality.
It's too much of a mix of everything, it's overpowering and strong. You're pretty much overwhelmed by the scent, and it's not a nice one either. Don't get me wrong, I'm not very picky when it comes to fragrances, but this one just doesn't work
I've only given 2 lippies because this is really not the type of fragrance I go for. Very powdery with a touch of spice to give that spiky feeling in the nostrils and slightly sweet. If you're a fan of powder, do give Neiges a try. If not, avoid at all costs as this is probably the powderiest fragrance I've tried. Goes on strong but didn't last long on me.
I actually got a sample of this when I ordered some Lise Watier makeup. I was excited because I had been wanting to try it, but was unwilling to purchase w/o smelling it first (since it is a Canadian brand and I'm in the U.S.).
Glad I didn't gamble and just order it because I didn't like it. Powdery is the best way I can think to describe it, sort of like a soapy scent. Not necessarily offensive, but it reminds me of something a much, much older woman would wear. And thought the scent itself is not gross by any means, it seems to give me a headache every time I wear it.
But as with all perfumes, that's just the way it reacted with the oils on my skin. I smelled like a soapy old lady, but maybe it will smell heavenly on someone else.
i have not used this scent but i am writing this as a "public service warning".
i work with a girl who wears this perfume, and since she has started wearing it she has smelled consistently like sour, wet, laundry.... this really strong smell that is just "OFF". i am not the only one who has noticed this. one of my coworkers noticed, totally separately, but neither of us is comfortable saying anything especially since we do not get along with this girl personally. this may sound wacky but i'm just putting this out there. please consider this when checking out this fragrance. ask second opinions!!
I tried this at SDM the other day and was surprised with how pleasent the scent was on me. It's a very cool, fresh scent, yet has sweet and fruity undertones but not too over powering. I didn't buy it at the time, wanted to leave the scent on my skin and see how it lasted through out the day,. It lasted pretty well and the scent didn't turn funky on me like more fragrances tend to, I will definately purchase when I am ready to buy a new fragrance.
I got this one on a trip to Canada at the duty free store coming back. I wanted a perfume that both me and my mother would enjoy and the lady showed me this one among others. Despite being a teenager, I like more sophisticated scents without being too old lady like. I ended up taking the entire bottle and my mother kept her limited edition Oscar de la Renta. I simply love the scent. It's very clean, powdery scented with a nice floral overtone. The heaviness of it makes it more of a winter scent but I had used it sometimes in the summer on very cool days. Unfortunately for me, it's only available in Canada or at least I can't find it in the U.S. and I have only one bottle. On stressful days, I spray a little in my room and it fans out, making my entire room smell awesome. I got it in a $40 gift set that came with a lipgloss that had a light scent to it. The bottle is so cute! It's so beautiful with the snowflakes, looks nice on my desk. Recently I've found the new Estee Lauder Sensuous perfume and it is now my replacement despite the mass differences. It's sweeter with a darker woody tone.
Very sexy, but quiet about it. Soft, sweet, yet not icky-candy-sweet -- more powdery/sophisticated sweet. It has a carnationy zip to it that makes it sparkle. The beautiful snowflake-embossed bottle is an added bonus. I'd like to try some other items from the same line to layer the EDT with. Also, I don't see this as a "just winter" scent -- I think it's nice for any season.
