"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 draws his inspiration for his perfumes from 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 acknowledgment for the artistic career of a perfumer, and he was the first to win this prize as an independent perfumer!
The most beloved scent from Lorenzo is Teint de Neige. A unique, and very powdery perfume.
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 center regarding scents. With a museum, fragrance garden, and education on scents and perfumes.
