Balenciaga – Le Dix

Perfume: Le Dix
House: Balenciaga
Perfumer: Francis Fabron
Source: Beauty Encounter
Size: 1mL

OsMoz Notes:
Top: Bergamot, Lemon, Peach, Coriander
Heart: Rose, Lily of the Valley, Lilac, Orris
Base: Vetiver, Sandal, Tonka, Peru Balsam

Date: 7/9/08 Weather: 79 degrees, drizzly

Comments: Top – WOW! Lilacs sprinkled with lily of the valley and doused with a citric fruit salad (maybe the peach/citrus combo). There is something about this that smells mighty familiar. Within 10 minutes – the rose takes over, with the lilacs helping. This comes across as much lighter than expected. And more like violets (though there appear to be none in the notes). 20 minutes in – the sandalwood appears. Reminds me of Bois de Iles. After 40 minutes, sandalwood, violets, a hint of powder, lilacs. Sticks around for about 5 hours.

Date: 7/29/08 Weather: 88 degrees, humid

Comments: Lily of the valley and lotion. More violets appear within 10 minutes, but still dominantly lily of the valley and lotion. Wound up showering after 2 hours – at which point it was LOTV, Violets, a hint of rose and lotion. Just as well….wasn’t feeling this one this evening.
