    Default O d`Azur by Lancome !Newcomer by Lancome!

    This is a new launch by the house of Lancome!
    Has anyone tried this one?
    If yes,could you share your thoughts about it,please?



    Official description:Top notes of the new edition O d' Azur will refresh you with zests and pulp of Calabrian lemon and bergamot aromas. A heart is feminine and gentle, created of peony and Turkish rose petals, decorated with pink pepper, while a base includes a warm embrace of woody notes, ambrette seed and sensual musk.

    Bergamot? Lemon? Hmm sounds verynice-like earl grey tea with lemon.
    I wonder if the mall will have any samples (proper ones)or if they have the new launch here yet?

    I tried it in the duty free in Spain recently. I found it unremarkable to the point of being quite pointless. Fresh, great for summer, yes, but so is the original -- and in my view -- fantastic super citrus-green O de Lancome.

    I found this disappointingly thin, inspid and already a little passé. Yawn. Sorry!

    I bought this the other day. I read a few reviews that said it did not have much lasting power and a few that said it had a lot of staying power. Probably depends on the person but on me it only lasts about 3-4 hours. However that is with only one spritz. I find when I put it on if I do more than that it is strong. However the smell is PHENOMENAL. Seriously, give me a makeupgasm. Honestly, as an eau de toilette I am starting to like that it only lasts 4 hours because when it is done I don't hesitate to switch to another scent for the evening, which makes sense since Lancome wants this to be a summer afternoon fragrance. I normally don't switch scents without showering but with this I can. The person above who said "super green citrus" really nailed that description. If you think you are a person like me who wont mind if it is not a long wear then try it. I LOVE IT!

    I tried O d'Azur on my skin today and agree with every word in soir de lune's post.
    This does not deserve to be a flanker of the great O

    its sharp lemon with a bit of floral hidden amoung the citrus. its very plesant great for summer but i find it annoying in that the sharpness gets to my head a bit not in away where i want to scrub it off but its sharpness takes away my joy of enjoying the nice citrus. its good lasting about 6 hrs on me and although i have a bottle i dont wear it often. a better choice to me is annick goutals l hadrien which to me is the great lemon without the sharpness its fresh and i find it a better wear for summer.

    I got headache inducing cal one in both the O flankers. Unfortunately they had been bought as gifts. I used them as car fresheners
