Review - Guerlain l'Heure Bleue Eau de Toilette Spray

The breathtaking beauty of Paris at dusk, 'The Blue Hour,' that magical hour of twilight, inspired this fragrance. A heady blend of roses, iris, and jasmine, laced with an intriguing background of vanilla and musk. L'Heure Bleue is intimate, emotional, and utterly refined. Like an armful of sweet, delicate flowers enveloped in a powdery aura.
Notes:Rose, Iris, Jasmine, Vanilla, Musk. Style: An engaging, moving, and spellbinding fragrance
1.7 oz Eau de Toilette Spray $62

This scent is truly intoxicating. . . it envelops you in its magic. Guerlain has developed many gorgeous fragrances and this is but one of them. I am a devoted fan of this and Shalimar. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say I am addicted to them. L'Heure Bleue is a fascinating combination of all the notes they mention. I do not care how they came up with this combination -- as long as they did. It is not a very light fragrance -- yet, at the same time, it is not overbearing. I prefer to use it lightly for a subtle effect. This gives off a sensual aroma which is absolutely perfect for evening wear. However, I will use it during the day with a very light spray. Others might prefer a heavier application as not everyone is happy with the lighter side of perfumes. I say heavier - but do not mean HEAVIER. I simply mean that many people do not like their scent as light as I do. This, as well as most scents, can be used lightly or with a more intense spray depending on your mood at the time -- or the mood you are attempting to set. This is a gorgeous French scent which can definitely set a romantic mood.
