As others have described this scent well, (I don’t get powder, certainly not baby powder) I’ll add I didn’t fall in love instantly wasn’t too keen at first, it’s not an obvious scent of the usual high street designer screeching & loud that smashes one in the face with its charms, this scent woos one and an hour later I was falling into deep love. It’s sensual, seductive, beautiful & …Read more

I love L.T. Piver's Heliotrope Blanc. I love that whole line of heliotrope/almond-y/powder fragrances in general, excepting the most extreme versions (Montale SOD, Keiko Mecheris' Loukhoum family).


Of the powdery/almond heliotrope family, Piver's was the first - 1850 per fragrantica. It's basically a combination of almost-Johnson's baby powder and …

The opening of this is beautiful, soft and warm and so well blended that nothing jumps out- it's just there and wonderful. The drydown (which happens on my too warm skin in 15 min) is flat baby powder.
The price is incredible, it's well done, it won't give anyone a headache- but it's not for me.

So far this is my favorite heliotrope (I have not tried the Etro). It is not sugary and skirts the edge of baby-powder territory. I think it's the jasmine that makes it a cut above. No one has mentioned musk, but I suspect that there's a bit of clean, soft white musk in the base. This has a light yet perceptible sillage that's perfect for bedtime (and as dancingoutlaw said …Read more

A soft powdery heliotrope scent with a tinge of bitter almond.
It stays close to the skin but lasts no more than 2 hours on my skin (and by this time I'm forcing my nostrils to sniff for the scent!). You can spray on a jumper it will last longer. Though it is delicate and soft, i still like Etro's Heliotrope equally as much or a little more as it lacks the almond note and is soft …

Piver Heliotrope Blanc is very similar to Mazzolari Alessandro and Lorenzo Villoresi Teint de Neige, without the aldehydes. Upon drydown it bears a striking resemblance to Caron Farnesiana, minus the resiny depth. If you like heliotrope and don't mind the "baby powder" association, you'll love Heliotrope Blanc. Soft and smooth, slightly almondy but not soapy. I still like …Read more

A “bright” heliotrope is an excellent way to put it. This is soft and very pretty. I actually think this one is worth tracking down. I've worn this around my house and to both a small bridal shower and to a couple of baby showers. I think it's nice for any event where lots of warm hugs are exchanged between dear friends. It’s definitely one of those, “Mmm, you smell so nice!“ kind of …Read more

After reading all the reviews and ordering a sample of this perfume online, I was really hoping to love it...but I don't. Although the opening notes of almond/vanilla were beautiful, within 10 minutes it had turned to the distinct smell of playdough on my skin. It then disappeared completely within an hour. I might use up the decant I have, but would not consider buying a full bottle. …Read more

Speaking of comfort scents, this is a gorgeous blend of slightly bitter almond, soft vanilla and gentle white flowers. There is none of the harshness that you'd find in many white flower/heliotrope scents. My favorite thing about this scent is how soft it is, hugging your skin with a whisper of fragrance that lasts and lasts and lasts. This beats all of the heliotrope scents I've tried …Read more

A delightful heliotrope scent sweetened with almond and softened with jasmine and vanilla. Sweet and cosy but not overly gourmand. This is the best almondy edt I've tried so far, IMO better than Héliotrope by Etro and Jour de fete by L'Artisan Parfumeur... and much cheaper too!
