Fuzzy Blue Blanket by Skye Botanicals is a natural perfume created to smell like the summers at Martha’s Vineyard. Fuzzy Blue Blanket does bring to mind summer afternoons, but the cuddly base reminds me of being covered with a cashmere throw on a cool fall evening.
Fuzzy Blue Blanket is a cozy blend of grassy chamomile, sunny florals and a bittersweet mocha. The chamomile gets more hay-like and this mixes with a wet, dewy rose. And the linden reminds me of dewy, honeyed clover. This part does remind me of hazy, lazy summer afternoons – sunny and warm. My favorite part of Fuzzy Blue Blanket happens about an hour to two hours into the wear. This fragrance really does become soft and cuddly. It’s this warm “skin” musk, think warm clean skin with a bit of salt, pair that with warm, sultry vanilla and powdery orris. The overall feel really is “fuzzy”, soft and like a long embrace…with chest hairs tickling your nose. Fuzzy Blue Blanket is the best “skin” scent that I’ve smelled (as of this date). I’m clumping it in with synths, mix-media and all-naturals. The base is heavenly. And trust me, a base like this will only get better with age/time.
Notes include linden blossoms from Martha’s Vineyard, blue chamomile, white rose, coffee flowers, musk roses, rhododendrons, antique musk, ambergris, Costa Rican vanilla, iris root and violet leaves. Launch date 2010.
Give Fuzzy Blue Blanket a try if you like powdery “skin” scents. Or if you like perfumes like Prada Infusion d’Iris EDP, The Body Shop White Musk, Ulrich Lang Lightscape, Humiecki & Graef Geste and/or Parfums DelRae Mythique. I find Fuzzy Blue Blanket unisex. I also find it seasonless; however, I wore it mostly during cool, rainy autumn days in Seattle.
Fuzzy Blue Blanket wears closely to the skin. Because of the base notes, this all-natural fragrance has above average longevity.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Hazy dry floral over this exceptional “skin” musk, soft and comforting. If you like powdery, soft fragrances you will want to try this. I also would recommend it if you are looking for a natural version of “white musk”.
