    Default James Bond perfume reference

    Anyone know of the perfume that James Bond (George Lazenby) mentions as he sniffs Tracy's wrist in the movie "On Her Majesty's Secret Service?"

    I couldn't quite make out which perfume he mentioned, but it sounded sort of like g'bleu, after which Tracy says "So, you know your perfumes. What else do you know?"

    I'm quite curious...

    Cheers,

    L'Heure Bleu, maybe?

    Could it be "L'Heure Bleue"? It's been a while since I've seen OHMSS, but that sounds like it might fit...

    Ok, I recorded the audio clip from DVD (I'm such a geek). You can get it **here** (it's in .mp3 format).

    I just dl'ed your MP3, and it's ***definitely** L'Heure Bleue. I heard it clear as a bell.

    I second or third that it is "L'heure Bleue"

    It wasn't how I expected L'Heure Bleue to be pronounced, but I believe you!!

    Thanks!

    I wasn't sure if L'Heure Bleue was a real fragrance or not (I've never heard of it). But I just looked it up in the directory, and it is!

    I seem to recall a movie made in the early 1990s starring Michael J. Fox as a hotel concierge. There's a scene where he's at a perfume counter helping a lady find a scent she'd like. He sprays some on her wrist (I think) and starts sniffing her, and describes the scent in a very sensual, flirtatious way. Does anybody recall the scene or the movie? Does anyone recall if Michael's character mentions the perfume by name?

    Sounds like L'Heure Bleue. Of course Lazenby pronouncing a French word with what I take to be an Australian accent, plus the hissy soundtrack make it almost unrecognizable.

    BUT I saw this again a month ago on TV overdubbed in Italian, and the name of the scent was different, and sounded something fictional or made up just for the occasion by the adaptator.

    Now I remember the name of the movie: *"For Love Or Money", from 1993! *I'm gonna have to rent it to find the scene in question.

    Can you turn on subtitles? Maybe it will tell the name in the subtitles.

    Jeepers, I never thought of that. And I'm a complete geeky technophile. You think outside the box, my friend. I'll try it this weekend and see if they "spell it out."

    It certainly doesn't sound like he's saying "Guerlain".
