Masterpiece
OH, L'Heure Bleue! Scattered dreams that reach the sky... How could I describe the "blue miracle"? How could I evoke its beauty? L'Heure bleue was not mine, but I was truly his. He made me kneel through its beauty, embraced my soul, kissed it and gave it back to me stigmatized with his... Read more

A comforting blanket
I'm not especially good with notes, and when you are trying to tear apart notes for classic Guerlain, I find it even more daunting. So I won't try. First, let me say how curious I find some of the reviews below. But then, I often notice that we all react very differently to fragrance. Cold? ... Read more

Melancholic beauty
I recently bought a vintage edt (batch code 2004 - I'm not sure if it can already be labeled as vintage after 10 years). L'Heure Bleue is very different from my other perfumes. I mostly wear less complex scents (not counting my beloved Shalimar). But I have to admit that if I am in the mood for... Read more

A Unicorn
When I first sniffed my sample of L'Heure Bleue I was so startled I closed the vial and lay it by the edge of my keyboard where I could peep at it now and then, much as one would hide behind a tree and peep if suddenly come upon a unicorn. I simply couldn't believe it. Many days later, I tried it... Read more

Not for me...
Count me in amongst the haters of this classic and universally loved scent. All I get here is antisceptic soapiness. This review is for the current version, not the vintage which I haven't tried and could possibly be a stunner, but, alas I'll never know. Bleeech for me, worthy of a scrubdown...

Blue Hours Can be Beautiful
What can one say that's not yet said about a perfume whose name casts a big shadow and is on the same shelf as Mitsouko, Jicky, Vol de Nuit, Liu & Shalimar? Classics that helped define our taste in perfume. Countless of people grew up with these scents as the epitome of french perfumery...Long... Read more

Endothermia or The Coldest of All Possible Perfumes
I have both the eau de toilette and the eau de parfum of L'HEURE BLEUE, neither of which I wear more than about once a year, believe it or not. Sounds like I hate this perfume, right? But I do not! Is this a contradiction? Am I hoarding L'HEURE BLEUE for fear that twenty-first-century... Read more

Disappointingly ... not for me!
From the Guerlain website: "The sun has set, but night has not yet fallen. It’s the suspended hour… The hour when one finally finds oneself in renewed harmony with the world and the light. L’Heure Bleue is the moment when the sun disappears beneath the horizon and the sky is painted... Read more

Dying Swan
L'Heure Bleue in its current formulation never interested me much. It always struck me as the wallflower sister of the classic Guerlain family of Mitsouko, Shalimar, Jicky and Apres L'Ondee. Although LB seemed pleasant enough, it couldn't hold a candle to its more interesting relatives in my... Read more

Time travel
L'Heure Bleue is a spicy/powdery floral oriental from the Old World that has somehow managed to slink its way into a time machine where it is riding the centuries while still enthralling people everywhere she goes. Not a small feat! Throughout the full development, from top to bottom, every... Read more

Classic Guerlain that best suits me.
Describing Vol de Nuit once, I said I can't analyze or dissect the classic Guerlains. This holds true for l'Heure Bleue. I get an anise-like vanilla and orange blossom, but it seems like one of those immensely complex orientals of its era. Beyond my analytical skills. Still, it is my favorite... Read more

Fabulosity in a bottle
L'Heure Bleue is a perfume that brings a caleidoscope of images to my mind.. memories that aren't memories, but should have been. A journey in time. It's the faint smell that rises from a forgotten scarf in the Orient Express. It is the whiff from an aristocratic lady passing by, wearing a fur... Read more

Like Feeling Blue
This is quite likely one of the toughest fragrances to review, at least for me. It's a gorgeous, nostalgic, dusky classic that's at once memorable and very hard to describe. I can't easily pick the notes apart as they're so well blended and the whole perfume feels smooth and seamless. But for the... Read more

L'Heure D'or
They should renamed this L'heure d'or (The golden hour) it's too warm to be thought of as being blue' blue is an clinical color and this is not an clinical scent far from it.

Romantic and powdery iris
It's quite intimidating to write a review on one of the world's most famous and well-regarded perfumes. Guerlain's earlier fragrances are all hailed as classics, even though many are hard to find these days. When I managed to track down L'Heure Bleue, I was both eager and a little nervous based...

Haunting. Romantic. Elegant.
It is the world through a veil. Yes, powdery, yes, orchid, jasmine, heliotrope and ylang, and soft rose. The vanillic base is gorgeous, embracing vetiver, providing such depth. The iris is there too, with its melancholic note. But so much more than the sum of its parts. It is brilliant. For... Read more
