Mystery Guerlain: please help identify

...I guess I'm a bit of a killjoy when it comes to L'Heure Bleu. Try as I may I cannot make it work for me during its active phase. I have to confess that many a time I have thought that the afterglow of L'Heure Bleu is incredibly sexy as a faded glory but not worth the effort of getting there.

Oriza L. Legrand

Legrand, Roxana, Aveda
...Bought the sample pack. I tried them when the weather was hot and unfortunately had to pack them away for our winter. Relique D'Amour was my favourite but could not compete with others on my wish list, such as Tauer. I won a sample pack of Roxana's Illuminated perfumes, three concentrations of 'Impromptu' and found great similarity in the genesis of Impromptu with Oriza L. Legrand's range. I am not their champion but I respect them very much. There is a link to Aveda's Dune Primrose, the scent of daisies and herbal infusions, coumarin maybe, exist in these three lines.

...Don't want to harp on but Musc Nomade is highly regarded by Elena of Perfume Shrine, Ida Meister (olfactory specialist to the point of ESP) and Katie Puckrik. I only discovered this after I fell in love with the fragrance but you can see the comments on the perfume shrine link above

Let's talk musk - any suggestions?

...Musk lollies, aka smokers were so popular in my childhood and then in my teens Houbigant musk was the 'it' fragrance. Sweet white musks in the market stalls were brought in from the East. Today Etro musk, NR musk, and Annick Goutal's Musc Nomade seem beautiful to me. I believe the NR musk oil is available again at Bloomingdales. This is regarded as creamy and alluring but it is based on Egyptian Musk favoured by Carolyn Kennedy RIP.
