About Parfums D'Orsay
To explain the history Parfums D'Orsay is to recount the romantic story of the Chevalier D'Orsay.
Alfred, Count D'Orsay was one of the most celebrated Dandy's of his day. The word Dandy become commonly used around 1830. At the time a particular kind of gentleman, such as Beau Brummel, aroused admiration among the upper crust through their witty remarks and outlandish clothing. They were eager to be noticed and imposed a certain life and dress style in this bored bourgeois society.
The Chevalier D'Orsay was one of the most famous Dandies of the era. His outstanding talents as a writer, painter, and sculptor reached either ultimate expression in his creation as a perfume composer. His memory will forever live in the famous fragrance houses of Paris.
His real talent, however, was that of creating fine fragrances. His interest was sparked when his beloved mistress Lady Blessington simply could not find a fragrance that agreed with her. In England, the fashion of the day was intensely musky perfumes, which did not suit the delicate skin of a Lady.
And so begins the life long ambition of the Chevalier. Alchemist of luxury and love, D'Orsay rapidly developed a growing passion for his new interest, which will never leave him. In each of his homes he dedicated a room to the creation of fragrances. He turns his back on all other passions to fully pursue the life of a parfumeur.
He died at the height of his fame in 1852 when he was only 51. Eternally a Dandy of the highest order in the history books of France.

For long-lasting effects fragrance should be applied to the body’s pulse points. These include the wrist, behind the ear, crease of your arm and knee, and the base of your throat. Pulse points give off more body heat as this is where blood vessels are closest to the skin, therefore continually warming and releasing your fragrance. Also, for a lasting effect spraying fragrance lower on the body allows it to rise throughout the day. Layering with the corresponding bath or shower gel and lotion, also is another good practice to help your fragrance last longer.

Review of Arome 3 by D'Orsay
I find Arome 3 (pre-reformulation) to be a good compromise between the light and airy natural lavender of Caldey Island and the in your face peppermint and medicinal lavender opening of Czech and Speake Oxford & Cambridge both of which are amazing lavenders in their own right. Arome 3 is perfumy and heady with a nice lavender accord in the opening that is not extended by the usual suspects moss and vanilla, but rather by a spicy floral heart of ylang, jasmine, and a light base of cedar and amber. The accords are nearly seemless though a tad sharp at times. Arome 3 is very floral and very French, but in a refined, gentlemanly way. I can still hear click of the Comte d'Orsay's ebony walking stick as he strolls eloquently down the old cobblestone streets of Paris on moonlit night on the eve of the Second Empire.
