    Exclamation Jean-Charles Castelbajac - BEAUTIFUL DAY - (Maurice Roucel) A Masterpiece.

    Not to be confused with the perfume of the same name from Bath and Body Works.

    This 2017 release is very elusive. At the moment it is only carried by Marionnaud perfumeries (here in France) and is available to purchase from their website.

    This is a masterpiece ! Created by Maurice Roucel, it contains a very special note/accord. If you were lucky enough to try or own the other very elusive release from Castelbajac,(Castelbajac for Women 2001) (also created by Roucel)...in the rather kitsch red 'hot water bottle' flacon then this is 95% that fragrance. It has been tweaked and and taken to another level....and put into a much nicer flacon.

    To me personally what makes this fragrance so special is that unique accord which I can only describe as the 'lido' accord or note. Imagine you are laying in the grass next to a large open-air swimming pool and you are getting on the breeze a faint note of the chlorinated water mixed with the greenery. I know it may sound bizarre, but personally I think it's ingenious. Eden from Cacharel also contains the swimming pool note, but in Beautiful Day it is better blended.

    I would definitely say that this fragrance is wearable for a guy, (because of the described notes/accords). For this reason I have copied this thread which was originally posted in the female fragrance forum and did not really get noticed there. I really believe this 'beauty' deserves some attention. In it's former guise as "Castelbajac for Women", (first release name and almost identical) it did attain somewhat of a cult status, (see reviews on the various perfume websites).

    This is really worth searching out !! ...but please note, the 2 flankers, (Beautiful Day Intense and Beautiful Day Bonheur) are completely different fragrances and in my opinion not bottle worthy.

    Beautiful Day is an edt, but sillage and longevity are both excellent.

    It's been a while since I posted this thread so I wondered if anyone had tried it ?

    Haven't tried it but very interested now after reading your thoughts above.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    We just had a Roucel sync, and I'm reminded of his bravado in composition. Will watch for this, just in case we cross paths.

    I know that Collissimo is one of their 3 international shippers listed, and they do deliver to the US. Try picking one of those last 3 shippers.
