I have zero idea what heroin or cocaine smell like (thank God), so I can't verify if China White is aptly named. However, what Nasomatto's China White DID remind me of was Thierry Mugler's Womanity, at least in the VERY beginning. I haven't smelled Womanity in awhile nor do I own it, but this is what registered in my "mind's nose" when I first applied China …Read more

Wow, I didn't get the nice experience from this that other reviewers did. I got sharp alcohol, sticky musk and a chalky dust note. It didn't even smell much like cocaine according to a friend who would know. Smelled like synthetic vanilla musk on this friend, like a really expensive version of a BBW vanilla musk. On me, it's not even perfume. Just an awful failure, especially …Read more

First off, it smells like Carefree pantiliners before they toned down the fragrance a lot. Now, I always liked the smell, but it is possible to have too much of a good thing. I think it is the subliminal connection with the intimates of a woman that brings out the scandal and "skanky" vibe that people get from this. It is warm and spicy-incensy so it also brings out the …Read more

It's a pretty, white version of Opium. A bit softer, a hint of powdery softness, like a cloud. It's quiet and subtle, it whispers in your ear instead of shouting in your face. I'd describe it as a soft, sleep-inducing Oriental. It is very nice, I probably would buy another decant of this. If I hadn't worn Opium for so long, I would really love this. I agree with the …Read more

This is a very light, soft and subtle incense. A gentle fragrance. It brought to mind an early childhood memory of getting up very early in the morning and silently riding the bus to elementary school: the first puffs of car exhaust in the cool, damp air, vinyl seats, fresh Afrosheen and soap. This perfume is more refined and pretty than my pedestrian memory, but it shares the same sleepy …Read more

I'd just comment that the dominant accord in this perfume can be found in lots of men's fragrances, anteus for one, the "bitter woods" whatever it actually is that's the phrase I use to designate it. I can't stand it. Rive Gauche for men also has it, but Rive Gauche Light is without it.

Hmmmmmmmmm, so I like China White. What a great name too. This is a deep sweet slightly powdery floral- it's got an old perfumery kind of vibe - sort of vintage which is nice. Very lovely scent.

Yummola! Smitten, in love, yes yes yes, more, more, so happy went and plonked the credit card down for a full bottle only after the briefest of sniff. That good. well, to me at least. My tastes run to the dirty/chypre/earthy yet very MLF mamacita type of scent, if that means anything to anybody. Anyhoo, this baby is not for the faint of heart. Starts off very lady-like classic chypre, some citrus …Read more

I'm the lone dissenter (so far).

On me this is a very overpriced, powdery, cheap smelling musk. My SO said it smelled like a bathroom deodorizer. I agree. It's generic, unpleasant and reminds me of pantiliners. I was so excited to try this after reading about it on blogs and from the good reviews here. *sigh*

No note stands out, I get no woods, rose or amber. It …

This is a mesmerizing elixer for sure!! There is woods, leather, incense and sweetness along with soft florals all blended together to make a unique concoction that lasts 9hr on my skin!! This does not scream any one note in particular....one of the most unique scents I have sampled in awhile...this fragrance is amazing in the southern heat, and I look forward to wearing this in cooler …Read more
