Floral Woody Musk Pierre Balmain notes in his autobiography My Years and Seasons – that “My friend, Germaine Cellier, had just invented a perfume for me which evoked the best kind of elegance of which I wanted to be the harbinger. I named it Élysées 64-83, my first telephone number.”

Reviews of Elysees 64 83 by Pierre Balmain


The geranium and the white floral blanket that is thrown over my nose is delightful, and soon touched up with whiffs of aldehydes. Nice.

In the drydown the jasmine and the deeper and richer components arise - laudanum with galbanum mainly - but is is the base that darkens even more: orris, touches of a mild ambergris, darker musks, a somewhat restrained moss notes and a nigh indolic undertone. All this is toned down in volume for the last few hours.

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and eight hours of longevity on my skin.

A scent for warmer autumn days, in the second half a bit less vivid and a bit attenuated in strength, but composed of ingredients of good quality. 3.5/5.
