Heure Exquise – created in 1984, notes include Florentine iris, Turkish rose, Mysore sandalwood, a hint of vanilla. The only distinct note I can smell in this perfume is vanilla, the rest are blended really nicely together and I loved how it smells on my skin. It’s a very soft, warm and intimate scent. And, in my mind, extremely beautiful. I wish it stayed longer in its strong(er) phase but I could catch a whiff of it 5-6 hours after the application. I’m seriously considering putting it on my “to buy” list.
Sillage: light (3 out of 5); tenacity: fair (3 hours).
