PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS OF PUREDISTANCE WARSZAWA PERFUME

The Scented Hound
“Warszawa unfolds like a day’s journey; the perfume starts bright and sweet like the dawn of a new day.  As the day wears on, the spice of the florals add life and energy and then finally, the perfume provides a finishing crescendo as if entering the grand ball at the end of the evening.  This is where the perfume settles into its final incarnation; a beauty that is unique as the noble city that bears its name.”

Odiferess
“WARSZAWA is not a note list. It’s a grand composition, symphonic, multi-faceted. You can’t smell a dominant feature ingredient, simply a gargantuan perfume. It’s overwhelming, aspirational and bloody gorgeous!”

Cafleurebon
“WARSZAWA is an éblouissant floral chypre, every bit as floral as a chypre can be. There are no timid blossoms amidst lusty feral jasmine and ebullient broom. In folktales, the broom-flower is used to cast a narcotic sleeping spell; it is among my favorite absolutes. Broom has a rich scent profile – honeyed, herbal/floral/fruity, the stuff of dreams. Orris concrete’s waxy silvery irones impart a woody violet hue, bestowing yet another layer of floralcy and contributing to its charmeuse-like texture.”

Perfume Posse
“Puredistance Warszawa is supposedly an homage to the smells of Warsaw, Poland. I’ve never been there, but if it smells like this I may relocate. Puredistance Warszawa is almost unbelievably lush, heavy with white flowers, galbanum and violet. It’s very long lasting and very, very feminine. It’s the sort of thing you would wear to a formal ball.”

Luxury Activist
“Puredistance remains true to its olfactory universe by going even further into the direction of traditional chypre. After a couple of hours, it is a true delight to almost rediscover a true Orris butter on skin. Such a luxury nowadays.”

Parfumistans Blogg
“Warszawa is a fragrance with many layers and interesting twists. Later in the dry down an almost balsamic texture appears, wrapping the wearer in a gentle and mysterious skinscent.”

Bonkers about Perfume
“So have Puredistance delivered their brief of ‘a dreamy world of old-time chic? Absolutely they have. WARSZAWA is dreamy in the same way that Opardu is, without having the extra dimension of muskiness in that scent. In its unashamed, blowsy femininity, WARSZAWA seems the anthithesis of perfumes made today – or since the 80s, perhaps.”

The Plum Girl
“Wear it to seduce yourself, to feel good in your skin. With a hint of Slavic melancholy in your eyes…”
