Take a minute and relax

First I get pineapple. It is smooth and sweet but not sickly sweet and I think of cold pressed pineapple juice (the good stuff, that is smooth, naturally sweet and same color as real pineapple flesh). This is brief and it changes green. It is dry green not juicy leafy green, not forest green but dry, herbatious and bitter zesty. I am seeing yellow and light green and it feels like I am in hot sun, somewhere where the sun dried everything. In the drydown flowers poke through the green herbal bitterness, that does not leave and stays in the background on my skin. I think Francesca nailed the name and colour scheme here. Very calming and relaxing scent.
Note to bottle spray nozzle : excellent - you can control how much you spray which for me means less on more places.

Baudelaire's Invitation
In 1857, Charles Baudelaire wrote an invitation to his beloved Marie Daubrun to travel to an ideal country (apparently inspired by Holland). The refrain is:

Là, tout n'est qu'ordre et beauté,
Luxe, calme et volupté.

(There, all is evenness in beautiful flow,

Luxury, tranquillity, luxuriant enjoyment.)

The poetic, sensual name fits perfectly with the elegant, fruity-floral composition with amber and green notes.

The fragrance opens with bitter orange, tangerine, galbanum and develops into a rich heart with ylang ylang, iris and tropical fruits. The typical Bianchi DNA then develops in the balanced, sexy base notes.

Summery, sensual, indulgent... Luxe, calme et volupté!

L'INVITATION AU VOYAGE

Mon enfant, ma sœur,
Songe à la douceur
D'aller là-bas vivre ensemble !
Aimer à loisir,
Aimer et mourir
Au pays qui te ressemble !
Les soleils mouillés
De ces ciels brouillés
Pour mon esprit ont les charmes
Si mystérieux
De tes traîtres yeux,
Brillant à travers leurs larmes.

Là, tout n'est qu'ordre et beauté,
Luxe, calme et volupté.

Des meubles luisants,
Polis par les ans,
Décoreraient notre chambre ;
Les plus rares fleurs
Mêlant leurs odeurs
Aux vagues senteurs de l'ambre,
Les riches plafonds,
Les miroirs profonds,
La splendeur orientale,
Tout y parlerait
À l'âme en secret
Sa douce langue natale.

Là, tout n'est qu'ordre et beauté,
Luxe, calme et volupté.

Vois sur ces canaux
Dormir ces vaisseaux
Dont l'humeur est vagabonde ;
C'est pour assouvir
Ton moindre désir
Qu'ils viennent du bout du monde.
- Les soleils couchants
Revêtent les champs,
Les canaux, la ville entière,
D'hyacinthe et d'or ;
Le monde s'endort
Dans une chaude lumière.

Là, tout n'est qu'ordre et beauté,
Luxe, calme et volupté.

Initially juicy and citric fruity-sweet, a gently bitter/green, resinous fruity-floral Spring fragrance, on a creamy spicy-woody base.
