Tearing me apart like a Blue emotion
Courrèges in Blue likes playing the codes.
With dry, and cool metallic notes to offset the sweetness, it's part orange syrup, part glint of steel; somewhere between femme and homme.

Between the two halves is a typical - but restrained - 80's bouquet: rose-jasmin and tuberose, and orange blossom touched up with marigold.
Marigold scents are often more interesting than seductive, but here, Edouard Fléchier has blended his thoughts with feeling, and so, being an Aldehydic Oriental, or a Powdery Amber, Courrèges in Blue is both alluring -and- interesting.

On paper it smells light blue, like the colour of the box, but on skin it goes orangey, like the colour of the vintage juice. (This is the 1983 version, not the 2014 release.)

Like Paris - with Grojsman's Doc Marten boots, and Diva - arriving on a motorbike, this is a feminine - there's no doubt about that - but it resists pidgeon-holing, like Annie Lennox in Here comes the Rain Again.
