HEELEY L’Amandière Parfum Extrait Perfume Review

HEELEY L'Amandiere Perfume

Purple Flowers Week 2014

HEELEY L’Amandière is described as “Extrait de Spring” – “green almond trees in blossom, bluebells, hyacinths, spring flowers, rose, green grass and tilia“. It pretty much describes the environment that I wish I were in right now.

L’Amandière is a light, sheer fragrance. It opens with an almost “green” heliotrope and iced linden blossom water. It’s delicate. It’s spring greens peeking out of cool earth and fruit trees covered in a “snowstorm of petals”. The almond is “floral marzipan”. There’s indolic, dewy hyacinths and a patch of violets covered in melting frost. It’s a cool, crisp and green almond-floral. It’s an “environmental” fragrance for me. It reminds me of a puppy love date that I had many, many, many springs ago. The dry-down is like the heart except with an addition of a light, airy musk.

As far as “purple flowers” go, L’Amandiere has these but it’s a green floral. It’s bitter, dewy and fresh. It really is like “extrait de spring”.

Notes listed include green almond, jasmine, rose and tilia (linden blossom). Launched 2012.

Give L’Amandiere a try if you like sheer green florals. Or if you like perfumes like Provence Santé Tilleul, April Aromatics Unter de Linden, Guerlain Apres L’Ondee, Malle En Passant and/or Les Nez The Unicorn Spell.

For an extrait, I’m not impressed with projection or longevity. I think projection is average and longevity is below average. I’m also guilty of really spraying this stuff. I would go through a 1.7 oz bottle so quickly…and have you seen the price of this stuff? Um, I couldn’t keep doing that.

A 1.7 oz bottle retails for $210 at MiN NY. Samples are also available for purchase.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONCrisp, early spring day – a delicate green floral. I tend to wear these sort of “cool, green florals”. They’re “my thing”. However, the price deters me with this one. Now if somebody wants to give me this as a gift, I’m cool with that. It’s just hard for me to drop this much on something that is like other perfumes that I own. Or this is what I’m telling myself right now.
