Tearing me apart like a Blue emotion
It begins orangey and sweet.
But there’s aldehydes and iris to reign in the syrup.

Courèges in Blue is 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 there is a typical but restrained 80’s bouquet of rose-jasmin with tuberose. And an orange blossom that’s tinged with marigold. Marigold scents are often interesting – more than seductive – but here, Edouard Fléchier has blended thoughts with feelings. It’s both alluring and interesting in a cerebral sense, being an
aldehydic oriental - or powdery amber.

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

Like Paris with Sophia Grojsman’s Doc Marten boots, and Diva - making her entrance 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 (1983).
