Derek Lam 10 Crosby Silent Street | Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Derek Lam 10 Crosby Silent Street is the type of fragrance that wraps itself around your senses in the most subtle way. It sits close to the skin, invites frequent deep breaths to take it in, and it is light and elegant enough to actually wear to work. While it is decidedly in the floral family, it has an undercurrent of White Musk that makes it the perfect clean floral for those among you who don't often reach for florals. While this is a remarkably feminine and fetching scent, it isn't a girly floral. The White Musk effectively tempers the light floral sensibility, and it has a very calm and peaceful demeanor. It is a light scent, which might lead you to believe that its sillage would be entirely elusive, and while it is not among the airborne fragrances that sit aloft in the air for a long period of time, after you leave the room, this scent remains intimate in its desire to remain close to the skin without imposing itself on everyone else in the neighboring zip codes. It is, in a word, lovely.
Fragrance Family: Floral
Scent Type: Powdery Floral
Key Notes: White Musk

According to Derek Lam,

Crosby Street at First Snow. A moment of total peace and purity in the middle of the chaos of New York City. The essence of pure white musks.
"There are so many great moments when I see a girl walking down the street and she’s super stylish and very inspiring. Crosby Street is so unique—it’s one of my favorites in New York City."—Derek Lam
Overall Assessment: This fragrance really resonates with me, and as luck would have it– it really gets along with my body chemistry. It is a truly beautiful light, white musky floral that is such a pleasure to wear.
