There is no denying that Tory Burch is a fashion powerhouse, with the American designer going from strength to strength. From influential celebrities such as Oprah who can’t get enough of the designer’s creations, to taking out the coveted 2015 Fashion Visionary award at the Fashion Futures awards, Burch has proven she’s a forced to be reckoned with. Making a recent splash into the world of fragrance, the brand has shown its scents are as chic, wearable and on-trend much like its clothing. Late last year Tory Burch released the Jolie Fluer collection consisting of three fragrances each representing an aspect of Tory’s personality. This season there’s no sexier fragrance than Jolie Fleur Bleue.
Name: Tory Burch Jolie Fleur Bleue
Fragrance notes: Tuberose, Jasmine Sambac, Grapefruit, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Mandarin, Pink pepper, Violet leaves, Cassis, Peony, Amber and Cedarwood oil.
Described as: Considered the elegant and understated fragrance in the collection, this scent blends feminine florals with zesty citrus accords before unveiling a woody base of Amber and Cedarwood for a sophisticated finish.
Wear it: During summer. I would recommend wearing this fragrance in the afternoon and evening because of its strength. This scent is perfect for a dressed up occasion such as a date, formal occasion or whenever the opportunity presents itself for you to stand out. Jolie Fleur Bleue is also great for wear in Autumn and Spring, in winter; I would choose a fragrance with a little more spice.
Price: Tory Burch Jolie Fleur Bleue 100ml EDP $195. Available now from selected Myer, David Jones and Sephora stores nationally.
The Verdict: What I like most about this fragrance is the ingredients are of quality. I’m sure we all know what a cheap floral fragrance smells like and this scent smells of refinement and luxury. It has a beautiful sweetness which is balanced nicely with the citrus accords, without being overpowering and unbearable. It has the perfect strength for an EDP and lasts on the skin while filling the air with its presence. Overall this scent is sexy, charming and sophisticated so be sure to try it when you next pass a Tory Burch fragrance counter.
