    Genre: Citrus

    A very nice, very conventional lemony eau de Cologne. It smells exactly like furniture polish.

    They needed Pierre Bourdon to do this?

    Insitut Tres Bien is one of those underrated companies which would deserve higher exposition and bigger success: their three Colognes (" la Russe", " l'Italienne" and " la Francaise") feature high quality naturals providing a fresh, natural feeling. Even if Colognes -that is, nothing particularly original or edgy- they are quite unique and memorable, you can smell the artistry behind them (Pierre Bourdon).
    Cologne la Russe is among the best Colognes you can get around: less fresh and bright than her sister " l'Italienne", less floral than her sister " la Francaise", here bright citrus and soft leather unite in a powdery, comforting skin-scent of rare balance and elegance. A perfect wear for both men and women who love sophistication, but in a charmingly understated way.

    This is a nice summery cologne, with an amber base that I find very pleasing. It's best for a hot and humid day outdoors; it's a bit subtle to shine in an air conditioned space. Thumbs up overall for its 'naturalness' and uplifting qualities.

    Institut Trs Bien's Cologne a la Russe is a lovely powdery fragrance with notes of orange blossom, almond and vanilla which has a clean, high-quality smell. Scent-wise, it is nearly a twin to Dior's Cologne Blanche with Russe having a touch more powder and Cologne Blanche containing a tiny bit more citrus. Both are comforting and beautiful perfumes which would appeal to someone who wants to smell "clean". Personally though, if I could only have one item from the Institut Trs Bien line, it would have to be the exquisite Francaise.

    Per The Perfumed Court, here are the notes: Sicilian bergamot, Calabrian cedrat, Provence verbain, Moroccan romarin, Florentine iris, Siamese benzoin and ambrette seeds.
