DSH Perfumes Ligne Trapéze EDP Perfume Review

DSH Ligne Trapeze EDP

Ligne Trapéze is DSH Perfume’s YSL Retrospective Collection for the Denver Art Museum. Ligne Trapéze is inspired by YSL’s “Dior Years” in the 1950’s. This one is meant to represent the epitome of French chic from the era. And it does. It’s a wearable “vintage” style perfume.

Ligne Trapéze opens with a blast of fruity aldehydes. I get a peachy-rose. The heart of this fragrance is a powdery soft violet and clean spring florals such as lily of the valley and daffodils. The dry-down of Ligne Trapeéze is a surprise. It’s still a soapy floral with orris powderiness; however, there’s this interesting addition of castoreum that gives a leather vibe to this fragrance, like leather opera gloves. While wearing Ligne Trapéze we see how she grows up and becomes a woman.

Ligne Trapéze is a flirty fragrance, it will be perfect for spring/early summer.

Anne St. Marie Dior 1958

Notes listed include aldehydes, bergamot, lemon, peach, rosewood, centifolia rose, grandiflorum jasmine, heliotrope, jonquil, lily of the valley, orris, violet, amber, ambrette seed, Australian sandalwood, Brazilian vetiver, castoreum, Siam benzoin and suede. Launch date 2012.

Give Ligne Trapéze a try if you like aldehydic florals. Or perfumes like Rochas Femme EDT (modern), Burberry Weekend for Her, Chanel Cristalle EDP or EDT, Annick Goutal Petite Cherie EDP, Estee Lauder Estee, and/or Dior Diorella.

Ligne Trapéze has average projection and longevity.

  1. I really love the scent of vintage fragrances. The bottles are also good that’s why I love to collect them. Love to get this one. The mix of the mild scent of fruits and flowers with the leather is really good.

    1. I bet your collection is lovely!

      I love that DSH is making “classic” inspired perfumes. Vintages are gorgeous but not the easiest to get one’s hands on. Plus, I like for my perfume to smell like perfume!

  2. This whole collection by DSH was fun and interesting to sniff. And I like the name of this one, especially.

    1. Yes, I highly recommend all in this collection.

      Just got the new Egyptian Collection and can’t wait to try those!
