L' Heure Exquise had been on my watch list for quite some time, so it was all the more pleasing that I got a sample with my last order... :-)

Immediately after spraying on, I am met by a clenched load of dark cocoa, not sweet, but rather dusty and bitter.... a mixture of unsharp and rather dull spices also resonates and I think I smelled aniseed for a short time...?

All very well matched, chocolate-unsweet, dark spicy and a little dry ...

A short time later gently floral tones of jasmine and champaka follow, which bring a wonderful floral twist into it...
But the scent is by no means to be described as floral... he just gets a gentle touch of it with...

In the background a few citrus sprinkles are gently swinging, but this really only very discreetly...

In the later course, smooth oud tones finely round off the composition and give the fragrance a stable hold...

All in all, I would describe the scent as unsweet chocolaty spicy... not quite new, yet beautiful and also well wearable in everyday life. The two oud variations used are kept rather quiet and discreet, absolutely not dirty or ferkelig, which could make the scent interesting for people without a special oud love...

But for me the scent is a little bit too quiet and not enough "indecent"... I would have hoped for a little more mess...
