This is Not a Blue Collection Collection gets its name from the Treachery of Images, a famous artwork from the 1920s by the Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte. The painting shows the image of a pipe above a declaration, which reads, “This is not a pipe”. Histoires de Parfums takes inspiration from this art, and in this collection explores the line where things go from void to existence, there is a profound depth of possibility; and of course, the infinite realm of blue.
This is Not a Blue Bottle 1/.6 is a burst of Citrus energy. The Earth is Blue like an Orange – the love poem written by Paul Eluard to Gala –who would become Salvador Dali’s lover. ..
Green souls fall in love in the shade of Citrus trees. Your laughter exhales a song of Yuzu zests and my kisses flutter, white, like petals of Neroli – as they rest on your Grapefruit lips. Red. The pulp of my fingers run along your Jasmine neck, I drink the blue seas of your eyes and the smell of your smiles.
There is a heat, a whiff of Vanilla, of two bodies entwined in a shape of White Musks. Hypnotic Lotus and dilated pupils, there comes from my fingers like a moan of Geranium, a desire to taste you like a sip of Orange juice. Green. I waft towards you on the wings of your skin-of-clouds. “Words do not lie”. There is no end to me.

HOW IT WEARS
We love the juicy, refreshing hit of Citrus in This is Not a Blue Bottle 1/.6 – the fragrance is uplifting and zesty like the perfect freshly squeezed glass of orange juice. The Citrus notes are undoubtedly the star of this scent however the gentle floral and clean earthy tones ground this fragrance creating depth and longevity. As an Eau de Parfum we get around 6 – 8 hours wear and moderate silage with this fragrance.
Yuzu, Orange and Grapefruit combine to create Citrus heaven, as the gentle florals come alive we are suddenly transported to the perfect summers day in the sun under the citrus trees and wild flowers bloom around us. With the fresh earthy notes of the clean air, we really smell this scent and feel immediately uplifted. A thoroughly modern take on a classic Citrus blend as one would expect from this perfume house, This is Not a Blue Bottle 1/.6 is a juicy, pulpy treat for the senses.
