    It shouldn't be applied so faintly that it's like you're noir wearing lipstick.

    Try a spray on your hair. It works wonders.

    I want to reek of L'Heure Bleue, but find it's a quieter scent so I tend to spray on the back of my hand and make sure to sit with my hand on my chin often enough to catch lots of whiffs throughout the day.

    Had bad luck with my L'heure Bleue vintage sample. It came, but it smells like cherries and there's no voluptuousness at all! It's either spoiled or not L'heure Bleue.

    Heliotrope does smell a little like cherries ScentFan, so l am not surprised you are smelling them in L'Heure Bleue. Maybe some of the other notes in your sample have turned, though. l think l read somewhere that L'HB does not age very well.

    Another name for heliotrope grown here is 'cherry pie'.

    Got some heliotrope here in my kit. Sniffing. Totally right. It's cherries. You guys know your stuff. Thanks, teardrop and Ipp. I'm going for the current LhB because I do love it. Will try again for vintage.

    I think it's called "cherry pie" because it's like when you add the almond extract to the cherries in the pie. That's what heliotrope smells like. To me it always smell first of play dough then settles into an almond sweetness.
