L'Heure Bleue Eau de Toilette Refill 93ml
This is truly a masterpiece of perfumery. I have worn many perfumes over the years including some of the greats - like Chanel No 5 and also Angel which is also wonderful but L'heure Bleue is in a category of its own. I first tried it in my twenties but couldn't get on with the slightly medicated incense middle notes but now that I'm in my fifties I feel that I can wear it and own it! I have so many enquiring comments when I wear it - people asking what it is - and that is lovely. In this age of wondrous choice with so many perfumes on the market, to me this is like the wonderful peaks of the high mountains - it stands out from the rest. Enjoy!
Its difficult to describe a scent really, but to me this is really lovely, not a daytime fragrance but lovely for a evening. Warm, exciting, very sexy and long lasting. This perfume was created a long time ago and really knocks spots off all these modern `samey' fragrances. Try it you wont be disappointed.
A monument of a scent
The top notes are powdery and elegant like a silver screen star. Think dark eye make-up, hats and feathers. The middle notes are warm and sensual, mysterious, alluring and definitely sexy... The base notes will free the Faery Queen that lives at the bottom of the bottle. They are timeless, enchanting and truly spellbinding.
In the face of all the chemical, teeny, bright pink scents of today, this 1912 classic is a reminder that perfumes should really be works of art.
Richly sensual deep and feminine
I bought this perfume years ago and fell in love with it. You don't need much but at the first spray there is an excitement and anticipation in this fragrance that is rich, mysterious, deeply sensual and feminine at the same time. It carries with it the excitement of being deeply feminine. The top notes: spicy sweet aniseed, fresh bergamot with a heart of rose, carnation, tuberose, violet & neroli and powdery florals of: iris, benzoin, vanilla and tonka bean . This is a rich oriental floral with powdery floral essences that are so well blended that neither overdominates but blend effortlessly into each other. A fragrance that becomes more fascinating the longer you where it and lasts on the skin till morning. This perfume is for women who know what they want and who they are and are not tempted to compare themselves to others because they value their uniqueness. A haunting fragrance that draws you into the sensual night hours: the blue hours as day becomes night.
A true classic. A 'rich', almost old-fashioned scent: elegant amber with a touch of powder sweetness. Try it and give it time... don't overdue it. It's all about subtlety.
