    The notes seem like they would form a classical composition: neroli, petitgrain, orange, lemon, musk...yet the balsam and probably moss add a chypre character that detracts from the beauty of the citrus and orange blossom. The citric accord is somewhat synthetic as well. The base is very powdery. Is this a traditional cologne? well, sort of.

    Powdery balsam with citrus topnotes. It's stunning in its EdT form but smells like a Glade candle when you get down to it. And old-school smelling perfume.

    The balsam predominates, and I don't find it that appealing. I also found the longevity to be terrible.

    With its strong hesperidic overture melting into one of the finest neroli notes ever and its general lightness this is a cousin of the great French Eau de Colognes by the likes of Roger & Gallet or Berdoues. While R&G has a more pungent citrus opening and fades quickly in direct comparison, Berdoues puts a stronger aspect on the orange blossom, but betrays quite some similarities, before Bleue’s gentle balsamic basenotes take over and it shows its greater fullness and roundedness. A classic Cologne promoted to Eau de Toilette, subtle, ethereal, brilliantly assembled. To me it is a scent of the South, conjuring up memories of strolling through the dusky streets of Cadiz, lined with orange trees releasing their beautiful fragrance as if to suggest the nights in Andalucia are not for sleeping.

    Utterly unique and beautiful. Feels almost airy - like a breath of fresh air. The balsam really comes through for me, that and the powdery vanilla base. The whole thing is just so unique. Lyman is spot-on: it's effortlessly exotic. Exotic in the way tropical flowers are exotic, not a heavy, dark exotic. Longevity was not a big problem for me.

    A warm citrusy-geranium scent, wears off nicely, medium longevity. Somewhat old scent, but would make for a lovely air freshener.
