One Sentence Perfume Review: Bel Respiro, Les Exclusifs de Chanel

Who says you can't wrap the lawn clippings in a piece of chamois and call it a bouquet?

Notes per Now Smell This: crushed leaves, rosemary, thyme, rose, lilac, hyacinth, green tea, aromatic grasses, myrrh and leather.

And fleeting, to boot.
Nice enough-
But pricey; I'll go for Eau de Campagne any ole time.

Or Vent Vert. I thought BR was nice, but it's sort of 'green without gusto.'

Excellent review! Although pretty, BR leaves something to be desired for something touted to be the new revolution in perfume :-)

Eeek, is it supposed to be revolutionary? I had no idea. Seems pretty standard greenery to me. Not bad at all, though.

Reputedly the whole line is! ;-)
