a warm and spicy comforter
This fragrance has conquered my heart immediately. From first sprayer practically immediately in love.

The series "Les Signes de Grès" I did not know until Dato yet, but wanted to test it necessarily.
Since the fragrances of Grès are usually very affordable, I was immediately on fire and have shared them in the Sharing, because 100ml are always way too much for me.
So when the fragrances arrived, I wanted to test État de Grâce first.

And what can I say.... It was love at first sniff.
He's just beautiful.
Warm spicy the scent lays over me, wraps me comfortably, gives me security and has what incredibly comforting.
He starts very briefly with bergamot, is immediately overlaid by delicate, lovely rose, subtle violets, rosemary, cinnamon, amber and tonka and glides gently into a quiet base of light-sweet spice blend, patchouli, cedar, labdanum and vanilla.
These merge into a homogeneous, absolutely soft and harmonious measures.
From the top note to the base, it is round, warm, balanced but at no time boring. The ingredients are so finely woven together, made dreamlike, no note disturbs or stands out strongly.

This fragrance creates images and feelings of moments
- in which it is the first times so really cold, one wraps up thickly and with red
Cheeks in the comfortably warm home returns. Makes himself a tea, which smells good,
sits by the warm fire and watches the harsh November weather through the window. One is
at home, protected, secure and content.
That's Les Signes de Grès - État de Grâce for me.

The bottle is very pretty, the lid sits a little too tight, the spray head is absolutely high quality and in fact one of the best I have ever tried.
H+S should actually be even more intense for me, although already not bad.
Since my bottle is already almost empty by sharing I'll probably buy the again (have to).
Everyone who stands on cuddly warm amber fragrances, TESTET the! Absolute recommendation on my part!

A Mischievous and Seductive Amber
Coincidence? Fate? Destiny? Call it what you want. The fact is that I found these three masterpieces on a site that sells perfumes online at a ridiculous price, and blindly I put them in the cart. We are still talking about Grès, so what? I read that they have planned these 3 perfumes to pay homage to the style and elegance of the Grès house under the Les Signes de Grès series. The packaging follows a line in common with all the collection peers, with a bottle with broad shoulders and a narrow bottom, a flat gold T-shaped cap, and a juice and label of different colours. This review concerns État de Grâce.

In the beginning, the scent comes out with a significant line of ripe citrus fruit and rosemary that progresses towards the vanillic tonka, bespeaking the leading finish of sweet amber with dry wood and leather. An intense streaked liquor medicine-like vibe lingers for a while as if the concoction were blending into the inestimable agarwood. Yet, the olfactive pyramid does not list it.

The liqueur veins get richer and richer in the heart; there is a boozy vein reminiscent of the finest Courvoisier cognac. Then spicy cinnamon with a hint of meadow chamomile and unctuous resin appears, thanks to a blend of roses that are no rosy at all. Surprisingly, the perfume features two of the most sought after roses, namely the Bulgarian and the Tunisian one. Yet, the fragrance does not manifest itself as overly rosy, typical of Middle Eastern fragrances. The sweetness of the rose here blends with the cinnamon's spiciness, and the scent remains on a centre line of ripe fruit with woody, vanilla and amber undertones.

On the finish, the scent increases the sensation of a spicy smokiness by moving through the tones of the incense family with styles of labdanum, residues of syrupy rose, and sporadic appearances of an almost herbaceous green background, toasted amber, and savoury spices. The smidgen of patchouli balances the otherwise too sweet caramelized amber, roasted tonka, and powdery vanilla. The last two notes are rich in coumarin with a sweet odour profile, said to evoke both the scent of newly mowed grass or hay and to impart warmth and sweetness. Creamy sandalwood and dry cedarwood impart a woody aspect to the base.

Of the three, État de Grâce is more reminiscent of Middle Eastern creations. This perfume follows an oriental-aromatic style very similar to that of its pair in the collection, Fruit de la Creativité, to be exact, both coinciding in an approach of resins, spices, and flowers, with État de Grâce reaching a projection and higher longevity. I recommend it for daily use, opting for the winter and autumn months. In closing, the perfume interpreted a particular amber with an oriental character refreshed by an aromatic floral top and draped in white woods.

This review is based upon a 100ml (3.4 fl. oz.) bottle I own since March 2021.
