Chiffon

Brand: Solstice Scents

Scent Description: Chiffon is a dual concept fragrance that brings together the airy, sweet and refreshingly tart taste of Lemon Chiffon pie and the elegant, wispy and equally airy beauty of chiffon fabric. A very special top-shelf, perfectly sweet and non-cloying vanilla (one of the vanillas in Nightgown) provides a base for a delicate touch of white amber and white musk. Chiffon is completed with the bright and uplifting scent of pure lemon myrtle essential oil. The lemon myrtle is one of the dominant notes on cold sniff and initial application. It will recede within 5 to 10 minutes and allow the other notes to emerge. Unlike most lemon essential oil top notes that disappear fairly quickly, lemon myrtle EO has a strong lemon-like scent but also a very good staying power. Lemon Myrtle is distilled from the leaves of a native Australian Tree. As it fades and takes a back seat to the other notes a wonderful, sweet, ethereal and beautiful long-lasting scent is left behind. The longer Chiffon is on the skin, the sweeter it gets. The vanilla is the longest lasting note of the blend and takes on a glorious whipped cream and an almost marshmallow note the longer it is on the skin. A really lovely and sophisticated scent! Fans of some of our other scents like Nightgown, Snowshoe Pass and Manor should really enjoy Chiffon.
While Chiffon is overall a scent that smells light and airy like clouds, it also is pretty strong and seems to grow stronger the longer it is on the skin so apply a modest amount on your first try and let it sit for about 45 minutes to gauge how much you will need for future applications.

  1. Very light and pretty! The lemon almost smells like lemon herbal tea, and the vanilla is a soft marshmallow-dusty fluff. Great for hot weather or as a sleep scent.

  2. Such an interesting take on a lemon cream scent. The lemon myrtle makes this so unique and I could not stop sniffing my wrist like a weirdo. You will not smell like cake. It smells like…the IDEA of a lemon cake, if that makes sense (it doesn’t, but pretend). I do wish it were a bit stronger, but I’m still buying a full bottle.

  3. A soft, sweet and surprising musky vanilla. The lemon myrtle, a touch earthier than real lemon, adds a pinch of freshness to the scent without clashing with the creamier notes. The tart lemon tones don’t linger for long before taking on a honeyed, near-floral quality thanks to the (initially dry and woody) amber; Chiffon could be the closest scent in Solstice’s catalogue to the pure vanilla-musk base found in so many of their blends.

  4. On my skin this reads exactly like Possets Dance With Me swapping lemon in place of the grapefruit. I love this. The lemon reminds me of Trix cereal that I ate as a kid. Very happy the lemon doesn’t go into Endust territory which happens a lot on my skin. I would say you can either add Chiffon to your collection or Dance With Me depending on if you prefer lemon or grapefruit. Very very similar in scent besides that. If you own one, you don’t need the other because they’re that similar. They both last for awhile but Dance With Me has the longevity of the two.

  5. This is one of my favourites because it’s such an effortless blend for everyday wear. The marshmallow is soft and pillowy rather than buttery and gourmand – like spun sugar – and it complements the brightness of the lemon perfectly. I would agree that the lemon is light and almost herbal more than zesty and cleaner-like. The overall impression is soft, airy vanilla and a bright squeeze of lemon, with the lightest of pale musks keeping the vanilla around on your skin for several hours (the lemon takes a back seat after ~3).

  6. Very pretty scent – as a fabric lover I can also see the name suiting this due to the sweet-powdery (marshmallow) hint in the perfume. It’s like well-blended marshmallow and lemon. The lemon is not citrusy as they used lemon myrtle instead of lemon EO. The perfume lasts a long time which is great but I also don’t feel like the smell is very strong – you smell it best right up close to it. My boyfriend is a big fan of this, although I feel it’s more a feminine perfume he has no problem wearing it.
