Review: Keiko Mecheri Peau de Peche


sandalwood, powdery notes, orris, musk, white peach, amber, & woody notes

There is nothing overtly offensive about Peau de Peche. It's fine. I don't mind smelling it on my skin, but it mainly reminds me of a nicely scented shampoo. It is a sparkling, feminine, easy-breezy peach. I found myself uninspired by it, perhaps because the person that I imagine smelling like this is so far removed from the person that I am. The woman whose pores ooze of this scent? Delicate, with milky, freckled skin and strawberry blonde hair. She's sweet as pie and never says a curse word. I am not those things. 

Peau de Peche begins with a juicy peach, and it only acquires a slight warmth and depth just before it starts to fade away completely (which doesn't take long). The overall, standout vibe is soapy peach. There's really not an awful lot more to say about this scent. It's quite simplistic and straight forward. There is a time and place for a modestly pleasant perfume like this. Peach note lovers will likely rejoice in Peau de Peche. And hey, I'd probably stare — mesmerized —  by the woman above who smells this way. I'd certainly ask her what shampoo she uses.

Peau de Peche EDP is $140 for a 75ml bottle, it was created by Keiko Mecheri
