The perfume both suggests and imposes the memory of she who wears it… she is an elegant, tender woman of secret sensuality. An armful of suave and delicate flowers enveloped in a breath of powder takes wing toward oriental notes. Floral, aromatic and very romantic, L’Heure Bleue can be qualified as a true masterpiece, a monument in the history of perfumery. Floral oriental. Endearing, unsettling, captivating the top notes of the fragrance sweeps you into the freshness of bergamot and the audacity of an aniseed note. The heart’s carnation and neroli accord intoxicates with a little spice, a little freshness and a lot of sensuality. Most troubling is the powdery, oriental dry-down that gives L’Heure Bleue its its suave fragrance, in the powdery note of iris and violet, and the gourmand note of vanilla benzoin and tonka bean. The perfume, enveloped in velvety warmth takes on a texture so soft and captivating, it’s like a silk veil on a woman’s bare skin.
