Citrusy yet flowery
The Violetproject is a niche house that I got recommended from the online community. I ordered its discovery set, and it arrived with a nice packaging (they even included testing strips). So the journey begins.

Nuée Bleue is my favorite among the 7 samples. Its top notes are citrus heavy (Bergamot and Lemon), and they generously splash out the freshness at the opening. While citrus notes can be a little over stimulating to my nose, it is not the case for Nuée Bleue. Partly because the scent immediately moves towards a flowery direction. Once calming down, the scent becomes more soft, but the hint of citrus freshness remains. It’s a little like eating a vanilla ice-cream with mint topping; the balance between citrus and flower notes are playful.

Nuée Bleue is a gentle fragrance. It’s a different way to say: it has a light projection, and doesn’t last long (less than 2 hours on my skin). Its light projection creates a contrasting experience to many strong perfumes from designer or popular niche brands. However, the poor longevity makes it hard to justify a full bottle. It’s a beautiful scent, and I’m happy to know it.

Edit:
My initial assessment of its longevity was poor. However, it somehow feels inaccurate. Nuée Bleue is quick to recede to close to the skin. However, unlike many other scents that simply die down quickly, it stays there for some time. I can detect its traces 4 hours after, which is definitely not a poor performance for my skin.

Classy, noticeable yet discreet. It has a successful carnation-orris accord in the heart that is rare to experience in today's market.
