I didn't detect any grass in Blue Grass, but boy, did I get a load of powder. I'm on the hunt for a green warm weather fragrance, and considering all of the reviews I've seen which describe this as very fresh and grassy and green, I thought it would be a good bet. Bolstering the impression for me was the bottle design---horse with a flowing mane---and the concept that it was born in the era of free spirits who wore bell bottomed jeans. I sprayed it on for the first time yesterday, and proceeded to half-choke every time the fragrance wafted up to my nose. I asked my husband for his impression; he sniffed my wrist, wrinkled his nose, and said, "Smells like powder." The last note I could discern before it disappeared a few hours later was a slight spicy one...not bad, but not what I'm looking for.

Blue Grass, to me, comes off as a very dated scent. We all know that fragrances evoke memories, right? Well, this is going to sound very crazy, but for some reason, when I smell this one, I'm thrown back to a discount department store from my childhood...you know the kind I mean, from the 70s, where there were tables full of cheap underwear you could paw through, all divided by size.

The search continues...

Several years ago I worked in an upscale nursing home as a housekeeper. Quite a few bathrooms had this lovely spring-like, powdery floral odor coming from them. Being the ever nosy person that I am, I had to investigate. In one of the rooms I found a dusting powder of Blue Grass and I was in pure heaven. The smell reminded me of those "Pat the Bunny" books where you smell the flowers. I know it's been years since I've smelled those books but I swear Blue Grass is what they used to scent them. It's the perfect spring scent-it's lush and floral with a touch of powder. I know both the vintage perfume and the dusting powder. Putting it on makes me want to wear a hat and sundress and go out for Sunday brunch. It's so easy to wear- even if you think you hate florals, give this one a whirl, it just might surprise you.

When looking for something that smells good, that's not heavy but lasts, which is uplifting emotionally and not too costly, this is the one to get. I would have liked the packaging to look better though but its what's inside that really counts for this one.

I've used Blue Grass deodorant off and on for over fifteen years and have just loved it and wished the smell was stronger, like perfume, so when I finally found a tester (could Arden seem more ashamed of this perfume?) I jumped at the chance to try it.

It is an old-fashioned smell, and the perfume highlights that. It is a spicy-woody yet grassy fresh scent, but the spicy end of the perfume just speaks too loudly on me. It is a nice scent just not for me. The packaging is adorable (dig that almost Art Deco horse silhouette!).

It would be great if Arden brought out a version that smells true to Blue Grass while hewing closer to the more modern smell of the deodorant, a lá Chanel Eau Premiere.

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.
