Fragrances - Byredo - BLANCHE Eau de Parfum

Soft, soapy, clean, almost creamy. It starts out bright and a bit sharp, but it settles down gently after about 30 minutes. I love the smell. It also lasts quite awhile, around maybe 4 hours on me with one quick spray.

I have very sensitive lips, and though I love the smell, ultimately, this lip mask doesn't work on me. In fact, I wake up the next day with painful, raw lips, which I have to scrub dead skin off on top of that. The rim of my lips were swollen. Perhaps I'll come back to this once my lips heal for the smell (Berry) is really good.

After using it every evening for more than 2 months and seeing not much difference, I have decided to finish it up and look for something stronger. Maybe my under eye is not soooo dark, and the wrinkles not as dry looking, but the bags are still there, larger than ever. I think it's all wishful thinking though. Disappointed as usual.

Three weeks later and my dark circles and bags haven't budged, my wrinkles are still pronounced once I wash the cream off my face. Skin around my eyes is as dry as ever. With the cream on, it's a bit less obvious, but it doesn't seem to be working much. I'm disappointed. The metal applicator feels nice when cold but does nothing for the puffiness in the morning.

It's a nice product for my dry face, and I usually use it at night. Be careful to stay away from the eye area as it may go into the eye. After using it only for a few days, I find my skin a bit more softer and a bit more clearer. Sometimes when my skin is extra dry I top it up lightly with my rather thick moisturizer. Been using it for about 6 months now and still like it a lot.

It's a nice smell but not fresh or clean as professed by many. It reminds me of soft, sweet honeysuckle. It is elegant, but it's not my favorite.

Finally got mine in "biscuit" and loving it. It hides my dark circles well (though not the shadows from the bags), and a little goes a long way. It's creamy yet thick, and lasts the whole day.

Love it! Keeps my hair up! OK, so it gets sticky and hard if I spray too close or too long. But it works! In fact, it works so well that my son is stealing it from me! But this is such a huge bottle, I think it'll last a long time.

Yes, price is rather steep, but it works! I saw my face literally glowing the next morning. I was very sick at that time too, but nobody believed me because I my face was so fresh and smooth. The smell is strongly flowery, but it does fade after an hour or so.
