Today I'm testing L'Heure Bleue Eau de Toilette, this is gorgeous! The Guerlain
site describes L'Heure Bleue as: One summer evening Jacques Guerlain with overcome intense turmoil. It was the suspended hour, the hour when the sky had lost the sun but not yet found it's stars. Everything in nature is clothed in a blue light. L'Heure Bleue by Guerlain: an emotion which this perfume alone is worth expressing. The curves which stand out on the upper part of the bottle show the influence of Art Nouveau. The stopper, in the form of a hollowed-out heart is an a playful allusion to the romantic pre-war years.
The notes in L'Heure Bleue are:
Top: Aniseseed note, bergamot
Middle: Carnation, violet, rose, neroli, carnation
Bottom: Tonka bean, iris, benzoin, balsam, vanilla
Something in here reminds me of Nivea lotion. The middle notes are more predominant when first applied, right away I could detect the neroli but it fades directly into the beautiful bouquet of the carnation, violet and rose. After a a few minutes I can smell the bottom notes, which are stunning. The balsam smells light but incredible!
This is one I'd definitely purchase, it could easily be worn year round from morning to evening! The EdT retails for $58/1.7 oz. and can be purchased anywhere Guerlain fragrances are sold.
