Le Feu reminds me of a "tartine de confiture" being tasted near a hot hot stone bench in a municipal park, at noon, in the summer. Lots of small flowers in there, stiff with heat. Thrilling!
The lactonic note also reminds me of Rush in many ways.
I guess those folks who love a 'clean, fresh' smell may like this a lot but on me this smells like an upscale toilet freshener. Hard to hate but hard to go nuts over either.
Le Feu D’Issey Light begins very light and delicate: a translucent floral opens the fragrance and is followed by a solo gardenia that is lightly and cleanly rendered with just a trace of a powdery floral. The middle is a gentle breeze off a field of flowers—the gardenia is presented with such discretion that only the softest wisps of this energetic flower are available. I wondered what was meant by “milky” in the description, and, in sniffing the fragrance, I found what the meaning is. The amber of the dry down does have a sweet milky cast to it; its sweet delicacy fits appropriately with the nature of the fragrance. Very soft, very feminine, it is the perfect fragrance for those who want a refined, balanced, sophisticated scent with loads of discretion. The spices are so soft that I can’t even find them. Excellent fragrance.
I did discover it so late.
What a frag!.
Soft, peppery, spicy but chic!.
I absolutely love this scent because its originality, smoothness and because it's warm, fresh and sexy all at the same time. Brilliantly balanced, like Chanel's Allure for men. Have had it for six years and I keep buying new ones, I never tire of it.
