Natural perfume line Providence Perfume Co. has collaborated with fashion designer Jonathan Joseph Peters to create Mousseline Pêche. Now being that this is a collaboration with a fashion designer, this fragrance is inspired by mousseline, a sheer fabric and not Hollandaise or “Mousseline sauce”
Oh, Mousseline Pêche is the juiciest peach you’ve ever sniffed! It reminds me of ripe peaches at a farmer’s market softening in the summer heat. It opens with tart citrus (yuzu to be exact) and the slightly floral-fruity aroma of Asian pears ripening. And then it becomes the juiciest, ripest peach. In the background, there is a ylang with a natural waxy black licorice component mixed with the heady, exotic tropical floral. The heart becomes an osmanthus rose that is still juicy but more floral than fruity. it dries to something bittersweet. It’s like green vetiver, unripe peaches and a sugary meringue.
Notes listed include peach, ylang ylang, rose and tonka. Launched 2013. PERFUMER – Charna Ethier
Give Mousseline Peche a try if you are looking for a peach fragrance or a fruity-floral. Or if you like perfumes like Aftelier Wild Roses, Chanel Cristalle EDP, Annick Goutal Quel Amour!, CREED Spring Flower, Keiko Mecheri Peau de Pêche, Demeter Fuzzy Navel and/or Fresh Sake.
I mean this in the nicest way. Mousseline Peche does not smell “natural”. I’m not questioning if this one is natural (I’m not the Naturals Police), I’m just saying that it competes with all of the other designer “big dogs”. One does not have to be a fan of botanical scents to fall madly in love with Mousseline Pêche.
Projection is above average and longevity is average for an EDT. I get about 5-6 hours of wear in the summer.
The 1/2 oz spray retails for $50 at Providence Perfume Co. This is a limited edition fragrance. And this makes me sad.
VIctoria’s Final EauPINION – The juiciest, ripest peach. I think it’s brilliant and a must try if you like peachy florals. This is one of my favorite perfumes by Providence Perfume Co. (my other favorite is Cocoa Tuberose which is very different than this one).
