Buttery and.. powdery? Wait, what?
by Sharon on Jun 10, 2016
L'Air du Temps smells almost... buttery. Strangely, the clove in this is light and feminine (rather than musky or masculine). This is likely due to clove's pairing with its perfect match - carnation. Together, they again prove to be the perfect pair in L'Air, lending a sweet & spicy freshness - clean and somehow crisp, amongst the butter and cream. Strangely, the rose and iris also lend a powdery quality. I'm confused as to how all of these competing textures are happening at once, but it's an olfactive experience quite unlike all others! Though L'Air seems a bit thick and syrupy to me now, in 1948 it probably was light and airy compared to some of the other popular sillage bombs of the time!
i think id wear it again

This perfume smells like spring to me. It a little strong at first but fades nicely.

This is a classic for good reason.Sumptuous floral with nice spice.
Not bad but is a strong floral

Too strong and in your face floral for me, but if you like that sort of scent, give it a try.
Sweet but not overly cloying

Can't believe this has been around since 1948. I started wearing this in the 70's and have always loved its softness. It is strong when first applied, then mellows out to a nice soft sweet smell. Not over the top if you don't drench yourself in it. Spray it in the air and walk thru it, wonderful.

My mom wore this fragrance (as well as Beautiful by Estée Lauder), and I've always thought she smelled beautiful.
Very feminine scent. Sweet but not cloying. I can't find anything negative to say about it, but I have chosen a different kind of scent for myself. Just a personal preference.
My all time, forever favorite

I've worn this for so many years that I'm not going to try to count. I know more women that wear this than I would like, too, because you want to stand out, but mostly the others have other #1's. Anyone of any age can wear this, any time of the day or night, and any time of the year. The smell is light and heady, but not boring. I don't think that you can put too much on, so that's one less worry for some ladies. It's a beautiful French perfume and it will stay with you for many hours if you put on your pulse points. I love how if I've had it on for hours and then I perspire, that this scent is the only thing that I, (or anyone else,) smells.
