Powdery family includes fragrances offering a comfortable skin-like effect, as a veil, with a kind of cosmetic reminding

Unlike other fragrances families' case, there isn’t a note or raw material named " powder". Powdery is more an effect than a well defined family. Most usual powdery accords are made of a combination of orris, violet, rose, heliotrope, musks, vanilla.. Sometimes, these powdery notes come together to create an almost lipstick-like scent. Powdery fragrances are generally feminine, and have a comforting and clean vibe to it, making you smell like you take care of yourself, but at the same time could be perceived as seductive. Metalique by Tom Ford and Cashmere Mist by Donna Karan are good illustrations of powdery fragrances.
