I think this is just overwhelmingly beautiful. Still haven't bought the full bottle yet I sure will. On my skin, it starts off with a blast of pure and cold hyacinth, making me think about a perfect violet flower encapsulated in a block of ice. As it progresses, it becomes milder, softer while exuding silky elegance. In spite of the cold start, I see it as more of a sensual, carnal …Read more

I love iris, hyacinth and galbanum (I adore Chamade, no 19, FM iris poudre, iris silver mist), so I should love Bas de Soie, but I don't. Part of it is that I don't sense that the florals were alive. For example, in iris silver mist, I can almost see the earth and roots surrounding the irises; in Chamade, the green pollination of hyacinth bursts around me; in no 19, it's an ode to …Read more

This is how I imagine an Ice maiden would smell like.
The iris & hyacinth create a feeling of iciness, a sharp metallic feeling, it's soapy, clean & green too. When I smelled it the first thought that popped into my mind was "regal". In my minds eye I can picture the woman wearing this: she's aloof, elegant, cold, & strikingly beautiful. It reminds me of …

This is a distinct Galbanum Chypre scent with a lovely iris incense behind and a soft touch of hyacinth. I'm not a huge fan of galbanum because it does tend to devolve into that inimitable 'forest floor' rotting green note, but in this case, it's blended in balance enough to turn this into, on me, a chypre version of Iris de Nuit or Infusion d'Iris. Lovely.

The iris is sweet yet woody, somehow they have put a rich powdery oriental tonality to this that modernises the astringent effect of classics like Cristalle and stident iterations like hyacinth Bluebell. I often think nowadays that one should study consumer perfumery and then just buy all of Lutens. Gosh, I could have saved up for many trips to Paris!

Oh my, I have finally worked out what this smells like a cross between Vosene shampoo (herbal, anti dandruff!) and my local dry cleaners- and I love it. At first the odd, chemical finished, new garment smell really disturbed me, but it has really grown on me. Curiously, I don't get any floral notes on me this is super synthetic smelling but in a good way. I left a tester trip in a bag with a …Read more

This is an uncharacteristic love for me; I haven't been much of a floral person, and I tend to favour big scents. Bas de Soie is not one of those large fragrances, although it's quite tenacious on me - I'm still getting faint whiffs of it, eight hours after application - and, I suspect, has quite a bit of sillage. Well-behaved, discreet sillage, but still.

On me …

Hyacinth, Powdery accents, Iris...hmm not to my nose. Granted, I am a beginner but all I get is a sharp, aldehydic, metallic, decaying floral that just makes me gag. This is even worse than Secretions Magnifique. I love so many in the SL line, so this was a shocker!

I was shocked by all the good rewievs! Lucky I just get a sample. This smell like some greenish slime that has rotten in water!! Really, there is something very strange in this scent that does me fell sick - for real! I usually like Serge Lutens, but this...yuck!
