LA BELLE HELENE
I love the city of Chicago, especially in the spring time. When the temperature is around 78-80 degrees and on a Friday night you will find lots of people at outdoor cafes, walking on Michigan Avenue with bright lights illuminating from designer shops and then there are those wonderful stage plays from many theaters in Chicago and surrounding suburbs.
Betrand Duchafour carefully and precisely constructed each note in LA BELLE HELENE with the scents that evoke poached pears with a chocolate sauce dripping with the essence of citrus. The musical notes in LA BELLE HELENE describes the flow of tunes made for a night of glitz and glamour.
LA BELLE HELENE features pear accord, aldehydes, tangerines, lime blossom, rose, essence, osmanthus absolute, ylang-ylang, Madagascar orris butter, hawthorn, Mirabelle plum, myrrh, vetivier Haiti, patchouli, cedar Virginia, amber, oak moss, absolute, white musks, sandalwood, licorice-wood.
Now, I can understand why there would be a war over Helen of Troy. I would fight too but only over Poires(Pears Belle-Helene) dessert and LA BELLE HELENE EAU DE PARFUM!
