Let’s see first what a milky perfume is. We are talking about a subtle sweet, comfortable and comforting scent of milk. In general, yes, it is a popular note in perfumes. We can say that it creates a regression in childhood, welcome consolation, but improves the floral components and fits very well with the sweeter elements. The recent rise of the gourmand subgroup (from the oriental perfume family) has introduced a lot of perfumes that take milk notes as a starting point.
Milky fragrances are more in reality more straight-forward than you’d expect: The term “creaminess” usually denotes a rich feeling, infused with silky, sensuous and lightly or more heavily sweet notes which may derive from soft vanilla, sandalwood, or coconut and sometimes from rich, lush florals that naturally have nectarous qualities, such as jasmine or honeysuckle.
NAOMI CAMPBELL by Naomi Campbell
Fine fragrances containing a high dose of natural ingredients can be subject to slight variations. In the same way wines vary from year to year, so can perfume. This is a natural occurrence and something that gives life to the perfume. The white flowers at the top of the pyramid preface the large bouquet in the middle, unfolding in the form of delicate petals of magnolia and orange blossom. After the introduction announcing a recital of absolute femininity, the perfumer adds a selection of unique ingredients to the first floor, especially the trio of peppers, star anise and coconut. The fruity side exposes slices of tangerines, bergamot and catkins. Thus, the juice pigmented by the hot powder of red peppers is poured over the bowl filled with fresh fruits, everything being hidden under an immaculate floral rain, which seals the mystery of the beginning. After the beginning acquires creaminess with the help of coconut milk, it turns into a delight for the skin, keeping its density until the first floral note caresses the wearer’s receptors. The white and creamy magnolia turns into a fleshy tuberose, which receives trivial looks from the much more powdered petals of heliotrope, rose and jasmine. Although the powder is not so obvious in the perfume Guerlain L’Heure Bleue or in Esprit d’Oscar, it pours on the skin in vague contrasts with the creamy notes from the beginning. The jam is counterbalanced with the help of spicy notes of chili and anise. The selection of spices that Ursula Wandel explores in the core of Naomi Campbell perfume is a bit unusual, usually the floral essences being surrounded by ginger or nutmeg aromas, not with masculine touches of chilli or cloves. The set of base notes is a delight for the senses, as it brings together accords of musk, sandalwood, amber, vanilla, cedar wood and a soft incense smoke, exposed under a cape of opoponax. As a result, the last scent of the perfume is not as fresh as the beginning, but warmer, darker and creamier. With a strong caramelized amber look, the eponymous elixir of the top model becomes a surrogate of the famous T. M. Angel. The comparison with other successful essences can be extended to the level of the burnt vanilla accord, which is reminiscent of the depth of Guerlain’s Shalimar gourmet dessert. In fact, the last part of the essence is the aromatic embodiment of the model on the podium.
Tom Ford Private Blend Soleil Blanc
Soleil Blanc is one of the latest perfumes from Tom Ford, whose scent praises the golden days of the summer season. Capturing the unique moments spent on a stay on a private island, but also the smell of the sea and the sand, the Tom Ford Soleil Blanc perfume integrates perfectly in the collection of lovers of floral perfumes. The white bouquet is complimented by the fine touches of the solar amber, being a living proof of the seductive refinement and the refreshing decadence. The mixture from the Private Blends collection exudes exaltation, sunset and luxury. Eleven in number are its ingredients, the extremities of the perfume being composed of four notes each, while the floral core is imposed by two white flowers – tuberose and jasmine, along with a sunflower, creamy and slightly milky: ylang ylang. Soleil Blanc opens on the skin with a veiled jasmine accent, clean, non-indolic, artificial and peppery. It is the same spicy flower that you can smell in Opus IX, but interpreted in a much softer, attenuated, diffuse and bright way. The pepper from Amouage Opus IX is intense and black, while the pepper from Soleil Blanc is pink and feminine. Tom Ford’s creation is extremely linear, changing very little during the projection on the skin. It moves so slowly that the wearer cannot notice the changes until they turn in a completely unusual direction. For the first three hours, the fragrant explosion of this luxurious water can be characterized differently, but not subtle. The smell is that of a tanning lotion with jasmine aroma. Amplified, strong and clean, it offers a feeling of coolness, which frames the essence of Tom Ford Soleil Blanc in an updated top with summer perfumes for women. Millimeter by millimeter, the changes begin to be felt in the core of Tom Ford Soleil Blanc, the mixture becoming more and more sweet, warm and golden. After about 90 minutes of spraying, the vanilla cream comes to the surface. However, the notes that make up the creamy liquid housed in the white bottle of the Tom Ford Private Blends collection are difficult to segment, because they are perfectly blended. They completely overlap, creating a clear, peppery mist infused in a bath of white flowers. After the fleshy petals of jasmine, tuberose and ylang ylang intertwine in a creamy crown, the smell of Soleil Blanc becomes one that strikingly resembles the aroma of a tanning lotion, this time with the aroma of coconut. After drying on the skin, it leaves an amorphous, sweet and vanilla imprint. S. B changes once more, more precisely when the drying stage begins. After five hours, the mixture moves away from the focused white bouquet from the first spray, merging with the smell of coconut milk and sliding more and more safely to a tropical base, gilded by the touches of amber, Tonka beans and oriental resins. Undoubtedly, the base of the perfume is amber, but it cannot be considered dark or mysterious. The smell of Tonka resins and roasted beans is a delicate one, ennobled by the sweetness of white musk. The vanilla base is revitalized by means of wood chords, which are reflected in the composition in the form of sandalwood shades. In fact, these are the dried pistachio shells present in the official description of the elixir. As the creaminess of coconut milk fades, the amber’s bright imprint intensifies, inviting its wearer to savor the natural beauty of a golden sunset at the edge of the world. Nostalgic and luxurious, Soleil Blanc is the image of a day spent at the beach in the vision of perfumer Tom Ford.

Olympea by Paco Rabanne for Women
The perfumer behind the perfume Paco Rabanne Olympea Legend is none other than Loc Dong, the one who made us obsessed with his monumental creations, among which we mention the perfume Calvin Klein Euphoria and the perfume Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia. This time, Loc Dong outperformed itself, bringing to the fore the intensity of plums in a unique combination with sea salt. The bold and provocative mix will make you want to immediately introduce this perfume in your collection. If plum and sea salt are the stars of the opening of this perfume, it should be mentioned that they are accompanied by apricot velvets, their beginning forming a fruity prelude, which will prepare the imposing performance of the floral bouquet. Towards the center we discover the floral notes, but also the surprising ginger flower, which emits a distinctive scent, slightly pungent and bitter, worthy of a woman destined to conquer. After 6-8 hours of wearing, Paco Rabanne Olympea Legend perfume stands out with intense notes of vanilla, amber, tonka bean and last but not least, sand.

The combination of the feeling of invigoration and sensuality is perfect, managing to offer a new construction, calmer and brighter. The sand notes also inspired the idea of the campaign filmed in the Namibian desert, the oldest in the world and with the highest sand dunes.
