"Perfume" in the best sense of the word - perfect yet not banal
If this extrait was created as a tribute to the classic Quelques Fleurs, then Robert Bienaimé did a good job.
The fragrance symbolizes the lush floral scents of bygone times, without needing their opulence and great appearance. On the contrary. For me, the Extrait becomes modern, slim, of a self-evident elegance that doesn't seem to be superimposed, doesn't need glamour and captivates with harmony.

In contrast to many modern flower scents, Quelques Fleurs L'Original does not shoot its powder in the top note, but it takes a while before the flower carpet spreads out in front of us.
Even with the best will in the world, it is not possible for me to break down the pyramid and with the impression that the scent leaves on me, I have not the slightest desire to do so. This is not the first time I have been confronted with a comparison with a painting in which it is not important to me which color pigments the artist used.

If one generally assumes that the heart note refers to the character, so to speak, the theme of a perfume, and that the base lets the fragrance fade away, then Quelques Fleurs L'Original adds an interesting chapter, because now the perfume shows its sensual side. No fear of oakmoss or civet! As skilfully and harmoniously as the flowers of the heart note are draped, so discreetly are the base notes chosen and dosed. Only a more serious thread runs through the fragrance, which does not change its character, but changes its mood from lively and radiant with a subtle smile to sensual and soft.

With this fragrance, I don't have to pay homage to the niche, nor compromise with a "yes, but", it doesn't bother a single note, because none stands out, nothing comes to mind and I don't even have to mourn the past, because the fragrance fits into today's world without any smear. In times when oud, vanilla and incense dominate the fragrance world, I find it refreshing to once again be able to perceive a classic fragrance that has transposed the theme of "perfume" into the present day in a modern yet nostalgic way
