  • Summary: On my skin this smells of excessively sweet apricots and powder. It makes me crinkle my nose. I dislike it for the same reason I dislike Chanel No.5: it smells terribly old fashioned. Must be those mysterious 'aldehydes'. That said, it smells expensive and is an interesting creation. It just isn't for me. I want to smell like a powerful woman, not baby powder and fruit!

LUXURIOUS SUEDE

Gabriel H., amazon.com
2 January 2014
  • Summary: This is a stunning fragrance of Iris Pallida, apricot kernel, cardamom from Ceylon, musk, heliotrope, and hawthorn. I find this to be a wonderful cold weather scent. Initially, I was a bit worried about the apricot kernel, which is a very prominent scent in fragrance and one that trends extremely feminine - it is detectable, but not overwhelming. On me, this scent dries down to a beautiful, spicy blonde suede reminiscent of a fine glove lined in silk.

  • Summary: Yummy soft buttery iris on a bed of leather. Perfect for cold weather. In retrospect, makes Bottega Veneta's fragrance (which strongly "borrowed" from Serge's earlier creation) seem strident with its tangy patchouli undertone. The apricot butteriness of the initial impression quickly melts into a skin scent with overtones of iris. Sillage is beautiful and soft. Would not over-apply as the sweetness could be overwhelming, and would avoid in warm weather.

Smooth whisper of suede

  • Summary: Daim Blond brings the collaboration between Shiseido art director Serge Lutens and "nose" Chris Sheldrake out of their earlier Arabian Nights opulence into a more modern idiom. Spices and leather are softened into an almost-skin-scent vibe, sweetened with apricot (osmanthus?) and made buttery-smooth with iris. The name means 'pale suede'.

Did not smell right

  • Summary: I have a friend who has this perfume and when I tried on hers it smelled great! This one smelled as if it had been stored in the sun too long.

  • Summary: Plastic leather, sort of awful, fades out to barely there iris and powdery almond-heliotrope with leather hints. Really doesn't work well on me. Certainly not worth the price. There are better leathers by far for my skin chemistry.

  • Summary: The scent is elegant, wonderful, highest quality ingredients. Leather and peach turn to one of the best skin scents. Unfortunately the sillage and longevity is zero, nada, nil. I have to reapply ten times a day, thus the scent is extremely expensive provided that it is soon over.

  • Summary: In the bottle this is just beautiful! I would recommed it to anybody. Sadly with me it seems another case of body chemistry blues. On me this is smells like dusty carpet. Really dissapointed.

  • Summary: As with all SL perfumes, this one is deffinitely worth at least a try.... Honestly, when I read that Daim Blond has a subtle suede note to it, I was kinda excited, because suede is my all time favourite material as a perfume note and as a clothing/shoe material.... and since I just adore Master Ellenas leatherism he produces for Hermes, I thought, ooo wow, this could be another amazing leather....and what a leather this is....!!!

  • Summary: I've been wearing this for some time now and I love it. It's a soft suede and apricot scent, very elegant and chic. Staying power is amazing on my skin! I just wish it weren't so expensive.
