Reviews of Belle de Jour

The smell is salty, white florals while the effect is clean, airy, light and unisex. Leans fem to me but only because of a personal association.
Stays in that general range for most of the day, finally settling into clean laundry musk.

Projection is decent but nothing loud. You can still smell the clean musk on skin into the next day, albeit lightly.

A light and airy spicy green...a pleasing smell casually drifts up to my nose...has a feel of classic elagance...the coriander/pepper/pimento gives it an unusual but very nice spice kick....a flavoring of orange flower drifts in the my nose , the only thing it lacks from keeping this really great is a lack of projection...otherwise, nice job...Could easily fit into the lineup of green scents from Oriza Legrande...

Belle de Jour brought to mind Ma Griffe. It is both vegetal and alluring, with an alternating distant and come-hither vibe. Picture a proper business suit with a a bit of decolletage owing to a blouse that is one button shy. . .

In 2013, Barbara Herman gave the world an iconic volume of scent exploration, Scent and Subversion, which has become the reference bible for all lovers of vintage perfume. Exploring 310 perfumes released between 1882 and 2000, it waxes rhapsodically over ingredients, overall effect and the public's response.

When I recently learned she was launching her own line of scents, I was delighted. She possesses one of the great noses of the perfume world and I knew her standard was high.

I did however pause at the choice of her perfumer, Antoine Lie, the person responsible for, according to the Basenotes profile, the vilest scent ever released on a unsuspecting public, Secretions Magnifique.
What would the result be?

Belle de Jour is "interesting." My nose notes immediately the plastic impression of an aerosol hairspray, followed by the jasmin. The very salty effect of the seaweed comes forward and stays center stage, softened by the floral note. The cedar and musk are a very discreet and almost imperceptible base.

It is most unusual and while not personally liking it, I can appreciate its originality and respect its intentions. Over the next few days I will be experiencing the other two scents in the initial release package of this line.
