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. Teint de Neige is a soft, gentle, enveloping eau-de-parfum, intense and persistent. 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 the skin, diffuses beautifully, and is distinct. As for the aesthetics of the thing, its name — “color of snow” — is conceptual, poetic. And indeed, wear Teint de Neige, and you wear the beautiful abstracted smell of the classic perfumed talcum powders of a previous, vanished age, scented with gentle, sweet, soft-focus flowers exuding melancholy. 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 Envy of the world. This perfume smells, as precisely as possible, like a memory."
