Parlux is a great company, but has nothing to do with Jean Desprez® and/or Bal a Versailles.
Can't wait to receive mine. Going to have so much fun with all the different formulations I have.
Only thing is I'm hopeless at writing descriptions identifying the different notes. Perhaps that's why I don't post here very often.

We are thinking about creating a special order link exclusively for Basenotes users that will not require you to register. This will also insure that Basenotes members will be able to buy the product, and evaluate it for us. Will this be of benefit to the fantastic Basenotes family.
We have gotten some wonderful questions from the readers of Basenotes (that does not mean we answered them all, but we liked the questions , and we would really value the participation of "your noses".
We will answer all the questions including perfumers, background, history, fragrance notes, etc. once our evaluation and survey is complete and when we get ready to actually launch the official release. We want you to be able to make an intelligent purchase.
We are seeking input from the evaluators at the moment and not trying to sell a fragrance. We will most certainly be trying to "sell it" in the fall, and hopefully by word of mouth, it will sell itself
We have created a special "Basenotes" link so Basenotes subscribers do not need to register with us, can participate in the evaluation and also get Priority Mail next day shipping. We have submitted the link to Basenotes for approval prior to posting.Thats great news, keep us updated!
Mine arrived today. I'm already perfumed for now but will give it a try later.
What does your bottle look like? I got mine today. It is a footed circle bottle and looks like the BAV bottles. Mine has no label. There is writing on the bottle and it says: "CREE PAR Jean Desprez". Then it has another word which I think says: "PLATINE" (maybe). Then "2011", all in a silver marker. PLATINE was also written on the outside of the box which was inside the Priority Mail box used for shipping. It is really a nice scent. Kind of a sparkly citrus. I'm not great a describing fragrances... but that is what I'm getting.
Thank you kindly for taking the time to comment. It was not the response we were expecting, but that is why we are doing an evaluation with our loyal customers instead of a focus group. A fragrance is a very personal thing, and we would rather have strong feelings positive and/or negative, than a mediocre reaction. There was no cutting of corners as far as the ingredients go, we know the high standards BAV consumers expect. If you do not receive your bottle in the next couple of days, please email us directly at [email protected] - and we will follow up. Your order was shipped the exact same way as your Boy Friends. Once the evaluation is complete, we will give everyone time to use it, and then a survey will be sent out. We do not want to skew the results with any specific comments as it relates to the formulations. Once again, thank you for participating, and thank you for your honesty and sincerity.
My bottle looks exactly the same, but substitute "Gold" for "Platine," and written with a gold marker instead of silver.
The scent is a heavy oriental gourmand and reminds me of Angel and some other scents in this category I've tried.
