At long last I found the perfect milky, creamy perfume that I was beginning to think only existed in my mind. Fresh Cream smells like a vanilla steamer--scalded, fatty whole milk with vanilla syrup. It hits your skin like a tame, creamy version of Buttered Popcorn Jelly Bellys. It's not that sweet, which was a nice surprise; however it does sweeten up in the heart. Also in the heart you can smell a touch of powder as well as some very obscure florals, but they are just right!
This perfume is all about creaminess and milkiness. It's more of a novelty scent for me. When I smell this, I think of being home on a rainy day, curled up on the couch with an ultra soft blanket and a good book. I'm not sure I would want to smell like this around other people, as I don't aspire to smell like vanilla milkshakes. This one is just for moi.
Fresh Cream reminds me just a little bit of those kinds of perfumes that smell like vintage powder compacts or broken Chanel makeup at the bottom of a purse, probably because of the floral and powdery notes, but then pour a scalding hot vanilla steamer into the purse and there you have it. Seriously love love love this stuff!
