Hey there Posse Peeps! Portia from Australian Perfume Junkies back to chat about a beautiful fragrant lady, Lily. Lily is famous for her Baiser Volé, or stolen kiss in English. She is soft, sinuous and lithe and will pull you from your lofty heights of goodness to her naughty lair.
Baiser Volé EdP by Cartier 2011
Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Lily, citrus
Base: Lily, green notes
The superstar here is of course lily. Mathilde Laurent wanted to tell the whole story of a lily, the whole cut plant in a vase. the flowers pistils, petals, leaves and some of the water that they sit in. Baiser Volé is sheer, fresh and airy but has a density and heft that is unexpected, the sillage is not strong but it changes the air as you walk past in a quiet way, inviting interest and questioning glances rather than exclamations. How they manage to keep the fragrance so linear with only nuances changing is beyond me, the story so perfectly told in such miniscule moves but the changes are felt and the idea complete.

From t-shirt to suit to gown, Baiser Volé can and will take you though all the events on your calendar. Only the most seriously frag phobic workplaces could ever complain but you will be fragrant and gorgeously so. If I was a signature scent kind of person this would be in my top 5 of easiest to wear, don’t need to think just spritz every day and night picks. Pretty enough for the young, sophisticated enough for the used to be young.
Baiser Volé is perfect for hot weather but surprisingly wears fabulously in the cool too. We are having 6 celcius nights and it is glorious to wear of an evening, or even to bed.
If ever a fragrance was to have a song linked to it then Baiser Volé should be it. what song?
The same cool rasp of silk shantung over skin, like the first sip of room temperature single malt scotch, Baiser Volé is both smooth, sophisticated, refined and slightly unfinished, a bit naughty. Like Mathilde Laurent knows all the things that good girls want to smell like and used them to make a fragrance for very, VERY, naughty girls.
Have you tried Baiser Volé? Do you have a few easy wear, think nothing of spritzing like crazy frags? What are they, and why?
