Reviews of Héliotrope Blanc

A cautious thumbs up because as we all know public bathroom soap, cleaning products and plastic baby dolls have long adopted heliotrope and its almond-y perfume (as well as medicine and cherry flavoring) for their purposes so the connotations here for many will be instantly be of those things, for better or for worse. But what you do get here if you're able to look closer and truly piece it apart is nice; tons of powder, a crumbly almond cookie or cherry marzipan coated in powdered sugar. It's very old fashioned, not trying to be much more than it's name, and something you'd expect a child to smell like after a bath, which is a great time to put in on. Be gentle in application, it's strong.

Timeless. A powdery floral. Calming, innocent scent. A summer breeze through a garden. Cookies topped with powdered sugar and candied blossoms. A great break from all the modern fragrances bleeding wood notes from every angle...

From the open window potted Heliotropes cast shadows on the old stone floor;
a warm breeze stirs the scent of bitter almonds.

A young Victorian woman sets buttery sweet vanilla biscuits to cool on the wooden table, the curves of her body move inside her white floral summer dress.

The baby's perambulator sits in the yard as somewhere outside the cat scratches in the dirt.

She sits and waits and reads The Imp of the Perverse by Edgar Allen Poe.

Soft powdery vanilla scent of heliotrope and with both excellent sillage and longetivity. Although sold as a "lotion," it is the equivalent of an edt for me in its strength and staying power. Extremely inexpensive ($10-12) and a wonderful splash for after shower or bath at any time of the year. A real find and available everywhere it seems. One of three Piver lotions revived and available for contemporary purchase.

Uncompromisingly talky but with that rooty touch of aromatic green proper of the wonderful heliotrope. It reminds me far more Ambre et Vanille by Ecoudray than the notorious more tasty (almost gourmand) Heliotrope Etro. A cloudy and ancestral blend of heliotrope, powdery woods, dry flowers and amber. Dreamy and  confortable unisex fragrance. Likeable.

Lovely take on heliotrope -- enfolds you in it's warmth. A man could easily pull this off -- I mean the Etro version is 'unisex' and this retails at a third of the price for 100ml. Les Senteurs have it along with a few others from Piver.

Highly recommended!
