Reviews of Cashmere Mist by Donna Karan

A bunch of flowers and musks mixed together to create a more-perfect-than-perfect clean laundry illusion.

I smell mostly fabric softener musk and a shot of bleach to really drive home that laundry illusion. If I try to sniff my way through the notes list, I can detect lily, suede, and the other listed notes, but they all melt together into a smell that simultaneously calls to mind fresh linens and some sort of fantasy detergent.

I'm dating myself here, but I always loved the smell of a Thomas Pink boutique, and this is almost exactly that, so I'm voting a hearty thumbs up for both the complex laundry illusion and the happy memories of shopping for crisp, British dress shirts.

I have a sample and I'm enjoying this on me. I'm happy to think this is a success and not a disaster where I am quickly using an oil cleanser to get it I off.
This has lasted for several hours so far which is lovely. I can actually say that it got better with the warmth of my skin. This is going on my wish list.

Creamy. Floral sweet. Safe. Slight suede note, like new suede leather. The flowers are well-blended. They maintain a fuzzy sweetness for a long time.

The base notes are also well-mixed. They aren't overly dark or deeply mystifyingly oriental in the traditional sense. The cashmere wood overrides any "darkness" that could have been intended. This frag stays "safe" throughout its wear. It would make a good workday scent - not much more.

This is for the latest scent, a terrible mistake on me.

At first it was all toilet bowl cleaner, fake hot chocolate, with old clearance-sale unknown brand, drugstore musk and vanilla. Fake is my overwhelming impression. I don't even get the faux amber or wood anywhere in this at all, no warmth, just chem -- cheap.

After about an hour it's sickening musk, vanilla and green soap. Like an old vanilla wafer (which some great wit had already noted in a review) which fell on the floor in a parochial school washroom and soaked up that horrid green soap. All that musk is just a redundancy. But yay me for giving it a chance.

I am going to go wash it off now. Wish me luck.

I wore this when my baby was little. When I went back to work, I stopped wearing it. So I associate it with nurturing.

This was my favorite fragrance for years because I love it and because every time I wore it in public perfect strangers would follow me around stores until they got the nerve to ask me what I was wearing and they'd tell me wonderful I smelled! However, I use it so much that I can only smell it when I first spray it on. So I have to spray it 10 times a day or more if I want to smell it. It's pretty expensive so I try not to use it so much anymore-give my nose a break. I'm using Prada Candy now and I can smell it for hours and hours. So I don't have to spray it on too many times a day. It's expensive too, so I'm glad it's stronger than Cashmere Mist. Oh, and I ONLY like the Cashmere Mist Eau de PARFUM! The toilette just doesn't do it for me.
