Heliotrope blossoms on musk bed
After spraying on, one immediately recognizes the bitter almond, then something like an aqueous extract of almonds or almond milk and something slightly bitter appears to me. This makes this fragrance interesting and authentic. Quite quickly something flowery comes through, too, but I don't recognize Jasmin or Ylang-Ylang individually and suppose there is synthetics in the game.
at this stage he's probably the one who's most likely to create vintage associations.
In the further course the bitter almond remains next to a strong vanilla-floral accord which comes quite close to the scent of heliotropic flowers. This is somehow beautiful and sometimes something other than vanilla baking aroma, which I do not find here again. The fragrance then becomes more and more powdery, this musk powderiness certainly also provides for 'old-fashioned' thoughts again. On the other hand this is now quite modern again, see e.g. Narciso Poudree.
After I generously dieselled myself with Héliotrope Blanc last night and went to sleep, I suddenly smelled Hypnotic Poison this morning. Definitely!
So, compared to Mandorla, which I also have in my collection, this one is quite changeable and also sweeter, more feminine, more perfumed. Mandorla has no fragrance at all.
Also the heliotrope of Etro smells different, as far as I remember it, it was more obtrusive and had something of a sweet but poisonous drug. H.B. is simply milder and muffled by the musk.

The Heliotrope Revelation
I'm into blind buying at TK MAXX. For me, there's nothing more exciting than standing in front of the perfume shelf, checking out all existing copies at Parfumo and then taking the best price/performance bomb with me (My trainee budget doesn't allow anything other than Ebay and TK Maxx treasures)
So it was a few weeks ago - I went into one of the Hamburg stores and came across Heliotrope Blanc. 100ml for 12,99 as well as top ratings - ZACK, packed.
I love sweet, gourmand vanilla fragrances and was therefore sure that I had made the big catch here.

At home then the disillusionment. Along with the realization that heliotrope smells for me more like running away than kneeling down.

I have to join the previous speakers, the fragrance is absolutely vintage and "aristocratic".
But for my nose it smells absolutely artificial and is a bit over the top - at least for today. It is not at all light and playful but very opulent and heavy. The scent of a loving but very strict governess at a European court. So is my association.

My first encounter of this kind with Heliotrop and hopefully my last.

I could imagine, however, that it could be something for many ladies, especially in winter. The shelf life is really okay and the fragrance warms nicely.
In my opinion, however, nothing for temperatures over 15 degrees.

Sweet past
Madame Pompadour with powdered face and opulent jewellery ...
that's how the scent comes to me. It is effective, incomparable and discreetly dosed very attractive if you like sweet, powdery and rather rare fragrances

Classic portable heliotrope bouncer from a good home
L.T.Piver makes my eyes shine as a bottle collector. It used to be a perfume house that could almost be named in the same breath as Guerlain as far as the catalogue of fragrances on offer and the precious artistically valuable containers were concerned. (Have a look at the Baccarat flacon Astris from Piver, a beauty!) Unfortunately, today you don't attach so much importance to an imaginative, appealing perfume presentation anymore, I have the impression, and also the current Heliotrop flacon looks ...inexpensive. Whatever the smell is, despite "quasi niche". But he doesn't smell like that...
The other day I flew over again what I had learned at the time to become Etro's flagship heliotrope. And after 6+ years every word is still true: I love him... from afar. The solution for this came to me only recently - Heliotrop Bodylotion from Etro! Not the full charge, therefore optimal for me. Then came Heliotrope Blanc, the cheap Piver. Skeptical and prejudiced, I sprayed first timidly, then more and more generously. What emerged was a soft, almond-creamy, vanilla everyday heliotrope. (Not like with Etro, where you can easily overdose and knock out yourself and others with it...)
Sometimes a light memory of the 70s comes through: Dr.Oetker woodruff pudding with vanilla sauce! Everything about him was perfect. The smell, the taste, the color, the buffing.
(There were also yellow, red and short times blue, but green was unbeatable.)
The woodruff's hint is subtle and fine, like the whole fragrance.
Also Sillage and durability are for the price of bright commodity. He makes me happy! So I'm going to use it more now...

My Queen Mother
Having just made the acquaintance of Alexander McQueen's My Queen a few months ago, I now have a sense of her ancestral lineage- so if you like My Queen, you'll be pleased with Heliotrope Blanc-

Heliotrope Blanc is just gorgeous- powdery sweet, vanilla with petals-

The longevity is incredible! 12 hours later, I can still smell a little cloud of heliotropic bliss around me (and I only used a smidge!)
