An effortlessly lovely ode to the color white. This opens with the crystalline sharpness of aldehydes, and then eases into a gentle white floral washed with soft sandalwood and transparent musk. Blanche is as light as a bubble floating on a warm summer wind and as clean as the steam from a long, hot shower. This is definitely in the family of freshly laundered scents, but it has a delicious warmth at its core that sets it apart. The ephemeral sweetness of the violet is anchored with the delectable milky richness of the sandalwood.
Blanche does not bring to mind harsh detergents or astringent cleansers, but rather the creamy lather of French-milled soap on clean, wet skin. As sheer and weightless as silk chiffon, you could wrap yourself in it and it would still read as delicate and airy. A classic and elegant rendering of the concept of “clean”, it balances the brisk, fresh elements with soft, sensual ones. Pure and beautiful.
