“The colour of snow”: the iconic powdery fragrance by Italian master-perfumer Lorenzo Villoresi, as a scented bath salt in a luxury jar.
Teint de Neige, the delicate rosy hue of a powdered face. The unmistakable scent of perfumed powders, the fragrance of face powder, the perfume of talc. An aroma delicately permeated by the richness of the natural extracts of precious flowers, recalling the light, images and atmosphere of the belle-époque.
Chandler Burr quote: “It is a well-built perfume; Teint de Neige lasts on skin, diffuses beautifully, and is distinct. As for the aesthetics of the thing, its name — “color of snow” — is conceptual, poetic. It has the delicate rosy aroma of some sepia-tinted era in which rose was king and perfumes were of an elegance now antiquated by the brash, strong, movie-screen beauty of the Envys of the world.”
