Both luminous and sensual, the animalic floral Belle de Jour is a study in contrasts, blooming with elegant orange flower and jasmine on a smoldering base of incense, musk and a salty and surprising seaweed absolute note. Its journey on the skin is a slow burn, peaking with a spark of pimento berry, which adds a touch of heat to the scent’s reserved sensuality. Belle de Jour’s olfactory iridescence ends with a veil of floral warmth like the smell of skin heated up by the sun.
