Hello Vintage Frag Freaks,

Barbara Herman is amazing. She has a blog Yesterday’s Perfume that we all read religiously when we need to check our vintage frags out. Wrote a book Scent and Subversion: Decoding a Century of Provocative Perfume, which quite a few of my frag buddies got for Christmas 2014. Now she has started a perfume house, a crowdfunded one no less, which starts its story with three fragrances. Thanks Barbara for sending me samples, so good.

GIVEAWAY WEEK

Writing a blog about fragrance means we get sent LOADS of things. It’s one of the perks. On the flip side is that there just doesn’t seem to be enough days in the month to get this stuff onto the blog and out to you all. This week I am dedicating APJ to a GIVEAWAY WEEK! Yes, every day for six out of seven days there will be a 24 hour GIVEAWAY. That’s right, you’ll have 24 hours to get your comment in and then it will be drawn. Enter every day if you like but only one comment per day. Got it?

Why did I choose Belle de Jour to write about? I think many people have the impression that an animalic perfume needs to be huge, a ball breaking, axe wielding Amazon of a fragrance. Belle de Jour is proof that they need be no such thing. If anything it plays quite the demure wallflower, pretty but you’d hardly notice the raunch it unless you get in really close and suddenly Belle de Jour becomes nuit d’amour. 

A lightly sizzling fruit compote opening that has green undertones keeping it grounded. A fresh, blue sky and joyfully summertime fragrance that does clean, sweet and green in a thoroughly modern vintage reincarnation. Dry green wood comes through, like pruning camellia branches or old cold tea leaves, and Belle de Jour is cool. Both the cool of temperature and cool kids. I can imagine it being perfect for both sexes but does skew towards modern feminine, extremely wearable.

The raunch in Belle de Jour is cleverly contained within a jasmine, seaweed, musk pyramid. It smells like sea air meets humanity and floats below soft and pretty fragrance. An interesting dichotomy and only super noticeable in testing conditions. Outside it’s hardly even a hint.
