This review is for the Cashmere Mist body lotion. Several woods -
sandalwood, amber, cedarwood, patchouli - plus vanilla and some
powder on top, almost buttery at times.
The tiniest amount of lotion is highly scented and
gives good control on the amount of fragrance.
smells like a soft, white, wooly winter sweater feels. pleasant, warm, snuggly. not half bad, but not all that memorable either.
I think this is one of those perfumes that smells creamy and wonderful on the right person and can smell kind of old-ladyish on someone with different chemistry. On me, Cashmere Mist is way too powdery. It definitely seems like a fall/winter fragrance. I can tell that this perfume has the potential to smell great even though I've never smelled it on anyone else. I think this is a good perfume, unfortunately it just didn't work for me.
This is one of the few perfumes that I hated on me and then grew to love. I went to Belk's one day to get Red Delicious, but it smelled worse on me that the last time I sampled it. It was very nasty with my body chemistry. I also sampled Delicious Night, which worked a lot better than Red but was still "meh". I tried Cashmere Mist for like the fifth time, wondering if my body chemistry changed, and I still didn't like it. I wandered around for a while until they all settled. Surprisingly, the more I smelled Cashmere Mist on my wrist the more I grew to love it. The other two left no impression on me whatsoever (except nasty and 'meh') but Cashmere Mist seemed to envelop me like a hug. Every time I smelled it I was comforted. It's strange, but that's the best way I can describe it. I've seen it referred to as a comfort scent before, and it certainly works that way with my chemistry. I finally broke down and bought a bottle. I think this scent will work for me no matter what season. The only drawback is that it is very easy to get tired of this scent, so I have to put it away for a while and then bring it back out. Another little interesting fact about this scent is that when I wear this layered with Black Cashmere, it smells just like my beloved albiet discontinued Chaos.
Notes used in Cashmere Mist are Moroccan jasmine, lily of valley, bergamot, sandalwood, amber and musk.
All in all, a lovely, classic fragrance.
I bought this fragrance during the holidays and I like it a lot, it is very soft and feminine and slightly vanilla-ish which I like. The bottle is classy and feminine, much like the fragrance. While it is a soft scent I would say it is more of a winter fragrance because of the woodsy notes. I think florals and citrus scents are more summer-ish, which this is not, but I do like this fragrance as it is sensual. While I do like this fragrance, I do not if I would buy it again as the bottle is still full and I have had it for 6 months. Maybe if it ever gets empty. Overall excellent perfume.
This is my comfort scent! It's sophisticated and ladylike, a bit like a classic light grey cashmere cardigan: you can wear it with pearls or with jeans and a white t-shirt. There is something powdery about it, but in a discrete way, not like boudoir powdery. I think it's very suitable for a strict working place, or a job interview when you want to be remembered as smelling good, not as smelling of perfume. I love it!
Sexy, alluring, feminine, elegant, sophisticated. I feel like a grown-up woman when I wear this (LOL, I'm 31). Cashmere Mist makes me think that I should wear it for special nights out, but I like to wear it anytime, anywhere. This pleasant, non-offensive fragrance is quite expensive and it does not hold very long, so there goes one lippie. I would definitely repurchase. This is one of those fragrances that I think I could do without but the minute I run out, I miss it and buy a new bottle.
I love this fragrance and everytime I wear it I get complimented on it. On me its very subtle and not at all strong and I wear the spray/lotion and deoderant.
I sampled this product recently and did not like it at all. It smelled very heavy on the alcohol and very cheap to me. The only redeeming feature may have been that the scent lasted a long time - but then again, who wants to smell that cheap scent for a long time?
I have been testing the body lotion in this scent for a while now, mostly because I love the smell of it out of the bottle. But on me, the lotion smells a bit like dust and old antiques with some old gold perfume thrown in. I wore it to a meeting and I could smell it all day and not in a good way but that way where you feel like an old dresser and need to get it off. Too bad because I love love love the texture and scent on others and on the paper. Oh well, the search continues.
