Rated 5 out of 5 by maryjayne one of the best perfumes, ever! Oh L'Heure Bleue, how I love you! You make me feel happy when I am sad, you comfort me when I need comfort, you envelop me in your soft blanket and make me feel safe, soothed, confident. L'heure bleue you are, quite probably, one of the greatest perfumes ever made. Others have waxed lyrical about you, written poetry in your name, probably even performed interpretive dance inspired by your beauty. How can I begin to add anything to the picture, other than to say I love you? This opens with a note others have described as almost medicinal, presumably the bergamot and aniseed and maybe carnation, but this isn't medicinal in a clinical kind of way, this is more old fashioned chemist where potions and remedies are made using old fashioned scales, pestles and mortars, where throat sweets are dispensed from glass jars behind the counter. Next neroli, iris and violet come to the fore, wrapping you in a cloud of feminine beauty. These notes remain as the base of vanilla and tonka and something woody step in, rounding the edges and softening this into the most wonderfully fragrant, feminine aura. This perfume makes me feel I should be wearing silk stockings, wearing bright red lipstick, sitting at my vanity and taking the curlers from my hair. This perfume is truly stunning.Violets, powder, woodsy vanilla, it is amazing. I don't ever want to be without this! longevity is good, about 10 hours and projection also good, for that lovely trail of perfume. Truly, I cannot recommend this highly enough! February 21, 2014
