Hard to believe, but true: A L' heure bleue clone!
That I may still experience this: an adjusted smell, which escaped me...and which knocks me down!
Why in the hell didn't I ever appreciate him sniffing?
Big huge mistake!
In fact, while looking for another fragrance today, I got my hands on the Montana Trilogy from which it came. Almost without thinking or great expectations, I sprayed the copper scent on it, suspecting that it had turned over.
So I continued to do my day's work and almost forgot that I actually wanted to at least smell him before I take him out of service.
After about 30 minutes I got suspicious. And after I had trimmed it once or twice, something seemed very familiar to me...I smelled a very close relative of L'heure bleue.
Don't you think? Why don't you try it yourself? (Fies, ne?)
I smelled this gifted fruity wood note with slightly oriental spice, lipsticky, mild sweetness and peachy velvety, as only a vintage LHB can have. No, I'm not. Eau Cuivrée can do it too.
He's not quite as strong and gets a bit dull woodier/soapy in the back, but at times he's a damn poem.
What a shame.
