I was initially surprised by how sweet this fragrance was. La Chasse aux Papillons (beautiful name by the way), is very girly and pretty, and in regards to that I find it truly lovable.
In the initial stages, La Chasse aux Papillons reminds me of the scent of sugary bubblegum. This fragrance is quite strong at first, but as it settles it becomes much quieter. The tuberose is of the friendly and universally likable kind. It's neither too creamy nor too floral. Bois de Jasmin described it well, "a mist of bright floral notes, underpinned by the coconut sweetness of tuberose". Essentially a sweetened white floral in a slightly different vein to what you may be used to.
It evokes something within me, perhaps a childhood memory, a desire to run in the Spring fields wearing a pretty, pink fairy dress with sparkly wings attached. Okay, so La Chasse aux Papillons may not be the most mature fragrance on the market, but it sure does delight me with its imaginative and juvenile nature.
It is indeed a very happy and fun-loving fragrance, one that I'd recommend as a niche for young girls and the super feminine types. I do believe, that even someone who doesn't usually like white florals will be impressed by La Chasse aux Papillons.
The longevity is so-so, not incredibly lasting but also not too disappointing. The sillage however is very close to the skin, which can be a good thing especially during the warmer weather of which this fragrance is best suited.
