Hello my lovelies. You beauty lovers are in luck as this is another brief review on some of my favourite fragrances. As for my male viewers, still have a read as this may be the perfect gift for your S/O! There is a fragrance for every mood, I don’t believe in signature fragrances at times. I have a range of gourmand, powdery, tart, tropical and floral perfumes. Among those gourmand/sweet and powdery fragrances are my ultimate favourites.
Why & What Are Powdery Fragrances?
Powdery fragrances are usually categorised under the face, talcum and baby powder group and slightly resemble musky fragrances. Powdery fragrances are musky, clean and soapy smelling and are perfect for putting on after a shower or before bed for that extra clean fragrance. However, I am always indecisive when it comes to choosing sweet or powdery fragrances. If this is you there is no need to be torn, because I’ve found the perfect fragrances with sweet candy and powdery notes!
Britney Spears Fantasy Intimate Edition 30 ml
As stated on Fragrantica, the base consist of white musk and vanilla – Here we have are musky/powdery and sweet notes already! I actually am writing and including links as I go along. I have a nose like a sniffer dog and I am so thrilled to be 100% correct this time. It is more mild, creamier and powdery in contrast to the original Britney Spears Fantasy perfume. It is not sharp and fruity like the original. To me, it smells like a custard based dessert with strong notes of brown sugar and slight lemony and powdery undertones to balance the sweetness. I have been spraying this perfume on after coming out of the bath or a shower for years as it has a fresh and airy element to it too. I absolutely adore this perfume.
Prada Candy Eau de Parfum 80 ml
Prada Candy does not have that typical gourmand, funfair candy floss based smell of nostalgia. To me, it smells more toffee/brown sugar based. I also believe that it has some powdery elements to it too. There are top notes of musk and caramel is the base note of this perfume. There are also notes of vanilla in this perfume. This is not your typical sweet fragrance. It is more mild and powdery than typical gourmand fragrances like Britney Spears Fantasy and Aquolina Pink Sugar.
Prada Candy Kiss Eau de Parfum 80 ml
Prada Candy Kiss is an even more powdery version out of the Prada Candy range. I personally think that it has a play-dough undertone in this. What this does is balances out the sweetness and makes it more powdery. It is also stated to have notes of white cotton and musk throughout. I personally find this perfume lovely and was hooked as soon as I smelt it when I was on holiday. I love it as it is sweet yet so clean and powdery and smells similar to baby powder, but only sweeter.
I hope that you all enjoyed this. I’d love to hear what sweet and powdery fragrances that you own and recommend! Also, the “Shop the Post” widget that I have included includes links to the best and cheapest deals that I could find on these perfumes on the internet.
