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.
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.
Ligne Trapéze comes in a few sizes with the 1 oz EDP retailing for $125 at DSH Perfumes. Samples are also available for purchase.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Aldehydic violet with an animalic base. I quickly used up my sample of this one. I love it. It’s a ladylike leather violet.
