I spritzed Blue Grass on prior to going out for breakfast with my family. After seating us, the hostess returned and asked who was wearing the wonderful fragrance. She said she loved it and said it smelled like "fresh air."
I bought it while shopping with a friend who immediately recognized it as the fragrance all her boarding school friends who rode horses wore. I love it!

This was the fragrance I wore in college in the early 70's. I came across a bottle in an outlet today and bought it. I sprayed some on and held my wrist under my husband's nose--he was my boyfriend in college. His face lit up, he actually remembered it from all those years ago. I think it smells the same once it dries down, the top notes are a little sharper than what I recall--but it's made in France, so I figured that was a good sign.

This review is for vintage (70's) Blue Grass. My mother always had this amongst her perfumes. Though it was not particularly her favorite, it the one I most often chose to spritz on myself. I thought it was a gentle, fresh feminine herbal floral, very dry and slightly powdery, soft and elegant. It reminded me of some of Annick Goutal's fragrances today--Eau du Sud, perhaps, and even some of the AG soliflores. I am inspired to try the newer version, though with some trepidation. I see that it has become very inexpensive--not necessarily a bad thing--but I hope it has not been reformulated or cheapened down to say, Emeraude's level.

I have seen this described as a floral but it's not what I think of as a floral at all. It seems very herbal to me, almost masculine. It's not unpleasant but not really my sort of thing. Quite light, not at all overpowering.

My grandmother wore this perfume, my mother wore it and now I wear it.
It has stood the test of time and is a classic for our modern age.
Whenever I wear this I remember my Nan, being wrapped in her arms with her long long hair enveloping me, snuggling up to her and taking deep breaths of this glorious perfume.
I wear it with alot of love.
It has a lovely sweet musky smell, kind of soapy clean and the fragrance lasts all day. I always get compliments when I wear this.

If you are looking for something different, something with classic elegance, that nobody else wears, this is yours.
It is an antidote to all the fruity, musky or oceanics that everyone seems to wear now.
Nor does it assault other people's senses like Angel or some of the other modern gourmand frags tend to.
It doesn't scream it's age-- unlike some of the late eighties frags like Opium, or Red Door.
Most people can't place it, and it's got that indefinable sense of timeless elegance about it.
Very few people will recognize it. It's an overlooked classic fragrance and unless you accidentally buy one that has been left in sunlight or high temperature (death to fragrance) then you may find yourself pleasantly surprised.

Blue Grass is a lovely aldehydic floral. I can't believe you can purchase such a classic, quality fragrance for so cheap. The opening floral notes are warm and blended well with my skin. And the drydown is even better....spicy, woody, and powdery. Excellent lasting power and an expensive smelling fragrance imo. I don't think I can pass up buying a bottle.

I absolutely love this stuff!
My sister-in-law was the first to introduce it to me when I was about 12 yo. and I've been enamoured of ever since.
If I were a woman I would wear this layered with the soap.
powder, and deodorant. This is a classic scent-not old fashioned!
I put Youth Dew, Arpege, and My Sin in the same catagory.

This is another my mother wore and that I've revisited. I can't say I ever really liked this scent when she wore it, but for some reason I like the idea of it and the name very much. For my mother, it evokes the fresh sweet smell of Iowa cornfields in summer. She used to spritz herself with it, post-shower after a long day detassling corn. To my nose, the topnotes are rather unpleasantly indole-ic, probably from jasmine, and there is a mustiness there too that make me not like it much in the beginning. However, it dries down to a nice dusty floral soapiness. It is far more interesting than most of the new scents out there, and on some people it might be great. Not bad at all, but maybe just not for me.

I am reviewing this for my mother, not for me. This is a lovely dry finished herbaceous floral, a sophisticated rendering of a summers evening walking through a field of new mown hay towards a garden of night opening flowers. Perfect for wearing with tailored, but somewhat casual clothes, lovely for daytime, not so good for evenings. On my mum it smells divine, on me it smells dusty. Try before you buy and don't be put off by the fact that it is relatively cheap and available in chemists.

Was at the EA spa today and sampled this one. With its light-blue packaging and vintage logo, I was hopeful that it would be a classic and powdery scent, like Je Reviens. Augh... no. There is something so utterly nauseating about this scent to me; it reminds me of that stuff that school janitors sprinkle about when a kid throws up. No offense to Blue Grass lovers, this is just how it hits my nose for some reason. A very distinctive scent that you'll either love or hate. Lotsa heady florals in this one.

Today was my first full wearing of this and i found it to be a quite enchanting scent. This is going to sound strange but i kept thinking i was smelling a giant stick of soft salted butter made the old fashioned way....with a butter churner. Imagine running through beautiful airy hills in Kentucky with the wind blowing, green grass fluttering,the wheat swaying softly, herbs are growing and swaying in the breeze as well. There are quite a few hay bales too. Theres is something else in the air too. It smells creamey, soft, butterey. In the distance you see a small run-down shack and decide to go see if anyone is there. When you get in view of the front porch you see two delightful old ladies laughing and carrying on and churning butter the old fashioned way and they couldnt be happier. You then realize that the creamey, soft, butterey scent you noticed back in the field was coming from this tiny little house. This is Blue Grass.

This smells to me like an actual whiff of wild herbs and flowers, not an idealized, sweetened-up floral. It is a very dry floral/herbal with definite character. Almost like a spicy/peppery potpourri, this stands out and is easily identifiable. Casually, I can see this going perfectly with tweed or calico or other traditional 'country' attire. Formally, this would be great with a pantsuit, it's not a prissy girly scent. There is a lady at my workplace who wears this at least once a week and I've grown to appreciate the honesty of this scent. I don't think that I would currently buy this because my Je Reviens, which I prefer, is so close to this IMO, only softened with a little powder which makes it a little more suitable for my style (I don't get powder in Blue Grass like others do). I will not rule out a future purchase, and I would highly recommend Blue Grass to anyone looking for something natural and outdoorsy and not the least bit sweet.

Blue Grass was absolutely awful on me. Synthetic smelling, cheesey, cloying, nausea inducing. A real scrubber for me, and that doesn't happen often - there aren't many perfumes I can't find something to love about. The appeal of this one completely mystifies me. Maybe I got my hands on a bad bottle, or maybe I got hold of a reformulation. ??? :-/

I remember this from childhood holidays, I was always stunned by the beautiful scent and gorgeous bottle the previous reviewer mentioned.
The new bottle is blah and doesn't speak the fragrances personality imo.
If you come across this scent, try it. I really is a forgotten woody and flowery classic.

I have loved this scent since my Mom wore it on Summer nights in the 70s. The bottle was thick frosted glass with etchings of horses on it and I remember thinking what a gorgeous bottle it was. Today, the scent is there, but not quite. Something seems to be missing, but I still buy it again and again. It still is perfect for Summer nights, too, not overpowering at all. Just spray and walk into the mist. It has a light powdery scent, delicate; I get compliments all the time when I wear this.

Blue Grass - An absolute masterpiece, and sadly much underrated. Like a walk a fragrant herbaceous garden at dawn, with the sun just rising and the dew thick upon the leaves. Fresh floral but not flowery. Cool lavender dominates subtly before jasmine, carnation, rose and narcissus softly emerge in the heart notes. dry down is smooth clean woods with a subtle touch of spice. Airy throughout. Similar to L'Air du Temps in expression. Great for the office / professional wear. Also great when playing sports. A hidden Classic.

As a general comment on Blue Grass, back in the 60's and 70's the bottle was beautiful. Frosted glass with etched reliefs of galloping horses. It would be great if Arden did an "Anniversary" edition and brought back that packaging even for a limited time. Possibly make it refillable.
