Questions & Answers for Guerlain l'Heure Bleue

The product details list rose as the first primary scent. Exactly how much rose is in the fragrance? Is it the main scent, a secondary scent, or barely there?
Thank you!

I did not detect any rose as the scent of baby powder overwhelmed anything else.

I have to say that I don't smell roses in this perfume at all. It is a mixture of scents that all blend together so that no one stands out. If I had to name the predominant scent, I would say vanilla, but in Guerlin, Shalimar is the standard bearer for vanilla. So I guess I would say that rose is a secondary scent and not detectable as distinct and individual.

It's hard to pinpoint the individual scents within L'Heure Bleue. I do not smell rose very strongly, and I would not have guessed that it contained much rose essence.

Is this anything like Shalimar Initiale?
I love Shalimar Initiale - it is soft, a bit powdery, and has base notes of vanilla and tonka bean. Has anyone tried both and is L'Heure Bleue anything like Initiale?

I also like Shalimar Initiale but L'Heure Bleue is very unique and has more of an underlying orange blossom scent with the classic Guerlinade base note. It will grow on you.

Unfortunately, no matter where you live this perfume will be hard to sample, as I mention in my review, as it is pretty much non-available in stores anymore. You can't find it on store shelves where I live, in Toronto, for love nor money. The best bet is to find someone you know who has it. Good luck!

l'heure bleue is difficult to find. It was popular in the '60's (or at least that's when I discovered it) and you could find it in the top department stores, but I haven't seen it anywhere except Sephora now. I think you should bite the bullet and try it. You won't be sorry!
