HOW IT WEARS
Belle de Paris has a dominant iris note that shines through (obviously…given the bottle), however, the lovely addition of violet, musk, and incense creates a thoroughly unique blend that is clean, and elegant yet also a little edgy. There is a hint of vintage powdery-ness that comes through on the skin, but this does not last long. The dry-down has soft woody notes that cocoon the iris creating an incredibly chic fragrance with a very cool nonchalance about it.
We love the blend of this fragrance – the iris and violet give vintage vibes, but then the incense, musk, and woods bring it immediately back into the present moment. Belle de Paris is exactly like the belle of Paris should be – chic, cool and classy, with a certain je ne sais quoi that can’t quite be verbalised. It’s cool without trying. It’s there but it’s never loud and in your face. There is just something undeniably alluring about it. That’s Belle de Paris!
