1 thought on “Ballets Rouges”

  1. Incredible rose chypre. The rose is realistic, sweet, pillowy – jammy rather than powdery. Up top, there’s the brightness of citrus and chypre to balance the blend. Opens with Rhubarb-y chypre, which fades across the course of the day to leave more and more beautiful rose. Really stunning – sophisticated but not mature. 6+ hours longevity, medium to high throw.
