I'm testing L'Heure de Nuit today and I'm totally in love with it! The heliotrope is like a bright shining star, it just shimmers through the entire life of the fragrance, way into the basenotes. As Mike mentioned, the first 5 to 10 minutes were extremely powdery. I wondered how he even made it through those 10 minutes without scrubbing ... but if you do wait, the results are so worth it. I keep thinking about the heliotrope ... words like: luminous and radiant come to mind. I picture moonbeams piercing the deep blue night sky. Corny, I know.
Is there a word that means "opposite yet the same"? Because that's how I feel about L'Heure de Nuit compared to L'Heure Bleue. There is definitely a place for both in my collection. This has gone straight to the lust-list in record time.
