"The colour of snow", iconic powdery fragrance of Italian master-perfumer Lorenzo Villoresi, as scented shower gel.
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 fragrance, 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 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 Envys of the world. This perfume smells, as precisely as possible, like a memory."
Lorenzo Villoresi from Florence got inspired to distill essential oils and start making perfumes himself in 1991 by his many trips to the Middle East and its rich variety of fragrances.
His talent for creating perfumes was confirmed in 2006 when he won the Prix Francois Coty. This is thé most important acknowledgement for the artistic career of a perfumer, and he was the first to win this price as an independent perfumer!
The most loved scent from Lorenzo is Teint de Neige. A unique to the core powdery fragrance.
When visiting Florence, a trip to Lorenzo's atelier and museum at Via de'Bardi is surely worth your while. He works from his family home, which has a wonderful view over the river the Arno. In the house next to his own, Lorenzo opened a Centre-Academy of the Art of Perfumes in 2018, which is a knowledge centre regarding scents. With a museum, fragrance garden and education on scents and perfumes.
