REVIEW: Tory Burch Jolie Fleur Bleue perfume

Tory Burch Jolie Fleur Bleue

The promise:

“Captures the intoxicating aroma of tuberose in Tory Burch’s garden in an elegant and understated mix.”

The reality:

I like this one. It reminds of Fracas by Robert Piguet. I’ve always considered Fracas iconic. I learned about it from a girl who was the girlfriend of a senior editor when I worked at Premiere magazine in L.A.. She worked at InStyle’s west coast bureau and had tons of personal style. She was funny, never wore pants — always dresses and skirts — and talked to me in a conspiratorial, just-us-girls kind of way. One time, she attended a small early screening of There’s Something About Mary with us (Cameron Diaz was also in the theater) at a movie-plex in an outdoor mall in Century City that also had a Bloomingdales. She plopped down in the seat next to me just as the movie was about to begin and said she’d just popped into “Bloomies” for a spritz of Fracas. She was the first person I knew who had an engagement party (at their cool little place in Malibu), and their wedding was covered in The New York Times. Fracas is fresh and floral and sweet, and I’ve always associated it with L.A. and this stylish girl I knew.

Anyway, last I heard, this gal now works in PR at Tory Burch in New York. Coincidence that Tory’s new fragrance smells like Fracas? Or maybe just the circle of life, am I right comrades?
