    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,

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

    My computer is mute but my guess is L'Heure Bleue. Vent Vert is mentioned in the Bond books.

    Here's a link to some earlier Bond girl perfume discussion: http://www.basenotes.net/community/Y...num=1121886013

    I think he says " Le Bleu" and that should mean ( as Tigs says ) L´heure bleu said with an English accent and a finger in the mouth

    The consensus on the guys' board is L'Heure Bleue as well.

    Thanks for all of the replies!

    Yes - I was watching this film today and I originally thought Bond said L'Heure Bleue. However, the film's transcript reads: "Isn´t Le Bleu a bit heady for that?" So I'm thinking perhaps it's the discontinued Le Bleu de Chanel. It would make sense that Bond to know something like that and for the character Tracy to be wearing it...

    Le Bleu de Chanel Notes: Aldehydes, lily of the valley, sandalwood, violets black currant, cedar

    BTW - George Lazenby is an interesting Bond and On Her Majesty's Secret Service is really quite good - it's more "raw" than other Bond films. I still think Sean Connery's the best Bond, but I have to say OHMSS is probably my favorite Bond film.

    I think a recent perfume reference in one of the latest Bond movies was Melograno by SMN. (This was the film starring Bondwoman Eva Green.)

    I have heard this in the books, as well.
