The opening is a delightful combination of an elegant almond, jasmine and white floral notes, which work together very well. In the drydown and slightly green undertone is added, and blends in seamlessly with the top notes, giving it an undertone of youthful freshness. This is not a rich and intense almond, but more a trim and lighter version but rich enough to convince.

The second stage, which on my skin starts after about four hours, is base on woodsy notes and is less impressive. A bit more generic and lacking the colour and expressiveness that characterised the earlier stages in this composition.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and six hours of total longevity on my skin.

In regards to this very pleasant spring fragrance the question is: with the somewhat disappointing second part, which is only the lesser part in this creation's development, is it is worthy of a positive score based on the convincing top and heart notes? I think yes, as the good part is by far the longer part in the development. Therefore: a good scent, but overall a bit inconsistent. 3/5.

Nice green fragrance that has a hec of a jasmine nice. Summer gem that will keep your attention and others as well. Wasn't a big fan of the opening with the abundance of green. The lime and light rose background does this fragrance a lot of justice. 7.5/10

Pleasant greenish fragrance with what I think of as a salicylate quality. It strongly recalls Lorenzo Villorisi's Yerbamate so I don't rate it as terribly original but then again, few perfumes are.

This is a very pleasant and high quality green and floral fragrance that remind me of spring.
The opening is a fresh floral smell with green and grassy feeling.
Imagine it's spring and you're a gardener.
While you're cutting grasses with the machine and smelling fresh cut grass aroma in the air, you can also feel relaxing smell of flowers around you.
There is also some sweetness in the background to give the scent more sensual feeling.
As time goes by the scent gets slightly sweeter with more floral notes and it has a soft powdery feeling as well.
Simple, but very natural and pleasant.
It's interesting that in the high heat the scent changes a little bit and gets less green but more sweet and flowery which is a little cloying.
I believe it's much better to use it in spring while there is some cool breeze in the air.
Projection is very solid and longevity is around 7-8 hours on my skin.
Any fragrance made from high quality ingredients is winner in my book, even it's not suitable for me.

Despite the notes being entirely different, on first application the initial blast is very, very similar. Not sure why that should be, as L'Amandiere hits the top notes of almond and linden right over the heads of the audience and out of the arena. Yet .... it still hangs around whispering "en passant, en passant".

As it mellows, it begins to shed it's coats little by little, displaying beautiful diaphanous, windblown skirts of sheer hyacinth (bluebell woods), with plenty of crisp, watery green linden and a "barely there until you look for it" shy wild violet.

Throughout it all, I am still looking around for the ghostly scent of lilac which keeps drifting across the air in front of me. Perhaps I am hallucinating on the tremulous mirage of spring warmth which this perfume conjures. It is a garden after a shower of rain perfume, a white muslin dress trailing in pollen.... A drift of wishful thinking?

This frag smells exactly like a narrow lane I walked along in Latour Bas Elne in May, where it rained for a week, solid sheets of rain which filled the storm drains day after day. The scent which was raised from the hedgerows and fields was intense and intoxicating, and L'Amandiere is that lane in a bottle. I am in love.

November 2013. I only have to sniff the cap of this bottle and I am immediately transported back to a beautiful warm day in May. The pollen is flying, the green buds have broken out of their sticky coccoons and new Horse Chestnut leaves hang limp and green like newly emerged butterflies drying their wings in the sun. I can hear the engine of the local bus taking me to the antiques market, I can see the smiles and feel the relief as passengers let the tension out of their shoulders which has accumulated throughout the cold winter. Men, young and old, are casting surreptitious admiring glances at young women bearing white shoulders for the first time in months. Sunshine, warmth, hope. Oh James Heeley, you are an artist!
