Paying it Forward: (in) Puredistance Gold
This post is a part of a joint giveaway, held by Undina (Undina’s Looking Glass), Vanessa (Bonkers about Perfume ), Lucas (Chemist in the Bottle) and Portia (Australian Perfume Junkies)
From Undina: In this age of advertising in social networks and working through inﬂuencers, vloggers and instagrammers, it is hard to justify spending marketing resources on a handful of“old school” bloggers with quirky blogging styles and limited outreach via followers or organic search. A very few keep doing that through the years.
Puredistance is one brand that was extremely friendly and generous with bloggers. Late last year Puredistance sent a travel spray of their newest perfume Puredistance Gold. I tied and I liked Puredistance Gold.
We decided to share – to make sure it reaches more people.
Parfumo gives these featured accords:
Top: Italian green mandarin, Calabrian bergamot, La Réunion pink pepper, Moroccan rosemary, Madagascan clove
Heart: Indian jasmine absolute, Spanish cistus absolute, Moroccan geranium, Madagascar cinnamon absolute
Base: Honduras styrax, Laotian benzoin, Myrrh, Indonesian patchouli, Green madagascar vanilla, Venezuelan tonka bean absolute, Castoreum absolute, Haitian vetiver
A gloriously fizzy citrus opens, I say fizzy but not like a 21st century celebuscent. Here we have the lustre of golden dawn tempered by shadows of spices and the clarion call of white flowers. I make it sound overly dramatic, it’s not. Puredistance Gold is satin smooth and flawlessly blended.
The heart becomes a sensual incense. Yep, I never thought those words would become a pair. Here we have it. Incense, patchouli, vanilla are all tempered by resins and animalics. A light sweaty breathiness that underpins the heart and dry down, giving this unearthly beauty humanity.
If you are all about your fragrance being an introduction as or before you enter a room then I double you’ll be moved by Puredistance Gold. We are talking seriously refined understatement, yet so unusual that it is a statement of its own. It says to me, “I have no need of gauche display. My perfection and grace are enough. A perfect cover for our imperfect selves, how better to trick the world than smell like this”
