Spring in Paris has almost become summer today. The shades of evening begin to descend. You sit in a cafe in the city center and look at the Seine. The sun goes down and the colors of the day mix with the purple sky. The familiar outlines of objects are faded by pastel tones, your eyes rest, and your feelings become stronger. The waiter brings you a cup of cocoa and a dessert. Dusky air cools your face and you feel the richness of scents brighter than ever before: the beverage, the food and a bouquet of flowers nearby. It is L’heure Exquise.

Petrol oud with cocao flare in the opening. Oily and rich. Some bitter florals enter against bone dry incense. Then a tart, balsamic fruit comes through--the neroli and bergamot. The drydown maintains a strong metallic oud. I feel like this is a colognoisseur type of fragrance rather than a mainstream fragrance. I can see how some might find it distasteful, but I'm quite enjoying it. The silage seems to be modest so I don't think it would bother anyone around me. True oud can be controversial and this seems quite authentic.
