The vintage and new versions are not the same!
I recently found at a Paris clear market a small bottle of the vintage Parfum, pale gold in color and in the old square bottle. This is in the grande dame of perfume category- balanced orange blossom, lots of carnation, and a nice spice note. Powdery and sweet, like the lilting of Hawthorn, but not overly so, and with excellent balance. The base is amber-vanillin atop a restrained wood, With no sand or sea notes, at least in the modern sense.

This is an excellent interpretation of "carnation". Seek out the vintage version!

1980s Tacky Beach Style
Based on the listed notes Ombre Bleue should be a bottled walk-on-the-beach scent. In reality, it is dated, dusty, artificial (at least in its opening) and plain ol’ odd. Sounds off-putting, right? Well, this is actually enjoyable.

Ombre Bleue opens with a sharp, artificial blast of jasmine. It’s not very appealing, particularly since the color of the juice is vividly blue, recalling some type of room spray. I fought the urge to scrub this room deodorizer from my wrists. For having survived the first five minutes of this I was treated to a cozy mix of dewy carnations and jasmine, sweet and salty fruits, and powder. Or, imagine Ombre Rose and Lilly Pulitzer’s Beachy had a love child. It’s a strange mix but it works.

The words ‘cozy’ and ‘hot weather-appropriate’ seem mutually exclusive with respect to fragrances. Ombre Bleue is proof that hot weather-appropriate scents can, in fact, be cozy without being cloying.
