Key Notes of Floral Marshmallow
What Does Floral Marshmallow Smell Like
Dossier's Floral Marshmallow perfume is a feminine scent that immediately tantalizes with its top notes of sweet marshmallow, fresh neroli, and zesty bergamot. Upon first spritz, you are greeted with the sugary scent of marshmallow, which is surprisingly not overly sweet or cloying, but rather soft and inviting. This is quickly complemented by the bright and citrusy note of neroli, lending a brightness to the overall scent profile. The bergamot adds an additional layer of citrus complexity with its slightly spicy undertones.
As the perfume settles, it begins to reveal its heart notes of orange blossom, honeysuckle, and jasmine, adding a floral dimension to this fragrance. The orange blossom note is particularly prominent, lending a lush and rich floral scent that doesn't overpower the initial sweetness. The honeysuckle and jasmine notes add a layer of creaminess and depth, creating a harmonious blend with the top notes.
The base notes of amber, vanilla, and musk anchor the whole fragrance, giving it a warmth and longevity. The amber provides a resinous, slightly woody undertone, while the vanilla complements the sweet marshmallow and floral notes perfectly. The musk gives the perfume an appealing depth, adding a sense of sensuality and seductiveness to the overall scent profile. Overall, Floral Marshmallow is a sweet, floral scent that delicately balances the sugariness of marshmallow with the freshness and complexity of floral and citrus notes.
Review of Floral Marshmallow
The Dossier Floral Marshmallow is a charming reinterpretation of By Kilian's Love, Don't Be Shy. Inspired by the original's sweet and delectably addictive essence, it captures the seductive marshmallow and orange blossom blend in a more accessible package. The perfume has an 18% concentration which allows for the fragrance to last throughout the day while staying true to its feminine appeal.
Floral Marshmallow's hint of innocence coupled with its playful nature adds a layer of complexity that makes it a real standout in the world of perfume dupes. The musk, amber, and vanilla base notes provide a comforting depth that harmoniously complements the sweet top notes. The perfume's alluring concoction of vibrant florals and edible notes is a testament to its versatility, making it suitable for both day and night.
Price-wise, at $39, Dossier's Floral Marshmallow is a bargain compared to By Kilian's Love, Don't Be Shy, which retails at a much higher $240. It's a win for those looking for a high-quality scent at a more affordable cost. However, it's worth noting that while this dupe does bring the essence of the original to the table, it lacks the luxurious experience offered by the Kilian brand.
Nevertheless, Dossier's decision to use clean, vegan, and cruelty-free ingredients is commendable and may appeal to consumers who prioritize ethical beauty products. Overall, Dossier's Floral Marshmallow is an impressive interpretation of By Kilian's Love, Don't Be Shy. It embodies a similar sweet, sensual experience with the added benefit of being more wallet-friendly.
