COMING SOON

00o1061611by5.gif


They said me by mail that it will be released in the first quarter this year, so we very close to this!


The new Jean Desprez fragrance will retain a dark, rich, and powerful scent with traces of Jasmine and civet. However, the similarity to Bal a Versailles ends there. The new Jean Desprez fragrance will penetrate the psyche, arouse the senses, and seduce as well as comfort. It is designed to activate a different signal each time it is applied, and is part of a new fragrance system that will keep the scent new and relevant for years to come.


Im very excited to this one!

Greetings,

They are still working on the new fragrance. Right now the plan is to make 3 variations of the fragrance available to Jeandesprez.com registered users and based on the response, then release one of those 3 as the final fragrance. It is an interesting concept, but the logistics related to production and shipping are a nightmare. As they tell us, we will tell you. Once again thanks for your kind interest. Ironically, the demand for Bal a Versailles has significantly increased, and production has been shifted to their flagship fragrance even though we know we must release a new fragrance.

Yeah, BaV has returning to the glorious days.
I bought 2x Parfums to myself, and its the first time that i bought it.

Also, i will be very, VERY glad and happy if I can be one of the Testers, since im bore you so much times by mails, hahaha!

Thanks for the explanations, and lets see if the fragrance will be:

Desprez n°1,
Desprez n°2 or
Desprez n°3

Ps: Thats not a bad name, uhm? :D

According to Jean Desprez:

Hi Daniel,

We are going to send several formulations. One formulation will go to a certain group of people, one formulation will go to another group, etc. Based on the response, we will know which one has the best chance of satisfying the most folks in the greater market place.

Thanks for participating and supporting our efforts!

Best,

JeanDesprez.com




I want hardly to try all of them, but Jean Desprez has broken my dreams =(

Mrs H

I'm from the UK too and ordered.

Despite very pleasant discussions with a representive from JD I didn't know they were sending out 3 different versions. If we receive them and yours is different to mine would you be to decant and post to me. I will do the same.Any other members from the UK are welcome to join in.

But my wish is the new reformulation replicates the skanky EDC from the 1980s.

I also suggested JD do a Robert Piguet and reissue the lot. I wonder what Luca and Tania would think!

The 2 bottles that will not enter in production will be VERY rare and expensive with the time!!!

Has anyone from the USA received the bottle?
I received my package today via priority mail. My friend has not received hers yet. They must have just started shipping. It says on the order page allow 3-6 weeks for shipping. They sent it much quicker. I put it on, and I love it! I won't say anything else because I do not want to ruin their evaluation. I got an email from them letting me know it was shipping, so I would guess others will be receiving a similar email. Love it, love it, love it. :grin: I will see my B.F. tomorrow, and let everyone know if he notices it.

Thats nice.
Take care of your bottle. Cause there are 3 bottles to be tested by the users, and just one will be released.

I asked then if i can get the 3 bottles, but i had a big NO.
LOL, sometimes i bother the people too much

Hello Mrs. H. We have not specified the number of formulations, nor would we. We can guarantee that there is more than one to be evaluated. This is a brand new Jean Desprez® fragrance creation.

Whatever version is received will have a handwritten notation on it with a name for identification. When we eventually send out a survey form, we will ask you to identify the name of the bottle you received. In the meantime our focus is getting the product out to everyone. Domestic orders have shipped and are shipping. International orders should go out this week. Thanks to everyone that has participated. International quota has sold out. We still have some evaluations left for U.S. orders.

I received an e-mail today saying that I should go to the site to leave my feedback about leaving notes. I see a list of notes there, but am not sure how to leave feedback. In what format? Do I choose from those notes? I think I'm being dense about this.

The fragrance notes are for reference. When they send out the survey form for evaluators, it will be very specific. It is a nice general reference to have. There is an email contact on the email you received for any further questions.

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.

How do you get different versions?

I asked them thousand times and they say its only one formulation per people.

Where does one go to read more? (please provide a web link)
http://www.jeandesprez.com

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

Re: Brand New fragrance creation from Jean Desprez

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.

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.

Mine was sent off on 31st March, but it's not arrived yet.

However my boyfriend kindly offered ( blackmailed more like ) to purchase another bottle for me. It was posted 4th April and arrived yesterday.

Standard shape BAV bottle handwritten in gold pen with CREEPAR and Jean Desprez on one side and Gold 2011 on the other.

Briefly I'm afraid it's instant dislike and makes me quite nauseous. I won't be spraying it again. It smells very similar to another scent I cannot identify yet. Memory is bad! Doesn't smell anything like BAV and I will cry if JD issues this. The concentration is high, which is good as it is long lasting compared to the Genesis formulation on my other hand.

Not very good at describing perfume, but it appears to me to be much too floral, sickly sweet and, dare I say, cheap smelling and none of the timeless elegance the old formulation ( even Genesis ) had.

I will comment further direct to JD once the email ( via BF email ) has come in. But I sincerely hope JD doesn't decide to issue this as the 'one'.

Looking forward to receiving mine soon and hope I've been sent a different one.

It has occurred to me why are JD issuing these different formulations when all we want is the original one.

Just my opinion.

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 info@jeandesprez.com - 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.

Thanks for being so understanding. It has provoked a very strong reaction ( no pun intended) in me which is ultimately and quite rightly what your company has set out to achieve.

Funnily enough mine arrived this morning and it's 'Gold' again which is disappointing. But I can take it on the chin because I still find it exciting participating in the evaluation.

I would like to sample the 'Platine' so perhaps something could be arranged with another forum member here and we can swop.

Angel...of course!

But JD's objective should be to make BAV unique. So I will stand by what I said before and urge JD to aim for the original gorgeous fragrance that was BAV.

Does anyone else have Platine?

To me it smells a lot like D&G Light Blue. Of course I do not have an expert nose, but they are very, very close.
Unfortunately I dislike Light Blue; it's just not the style of fragrance I wear.

{EDIT: Platine is stronger]

Because BAV is so wonderfully one-of-a kind I was hoping for something with more of an edge.
