How? I Apply the Fragrance
Out of nowhere, I decided to go with this one as my first purchase from the house. Using a collective of people I trust, I did a blind buy. This is different than I thought it would be, but I’m very pleased overall. It is a sweet, dirty floral that is strong on skin. I don’t see it projecting at all, but that is my preference in almost all my fragrances. There are rarely times I want to go in like a bomb, so this fits right in. I am weirdly in love with Monserrat, but that will have to wait until next summer before I purchase that.
Au Dela Narcisse brings springtime with its budding green, crisp sensations. Bruno provided the fantastic foundation for all these ingredients to shine from. Bergamot shines briefly until florals bring some sassy attributes; I can smell the brilliant wit here. This is called “switching it up and adding your voice—OK, nose—as a nod to a must-have category. This perfume puts the ingredient in the name and delivers in chypre form. Narcissus is the star all the way through to the base, and is unforgettable after wearing this. If you know narcissus and love it, this is an absolute must-buy perfume. If you haven’t smelled narcissus before, however, Au Dela Narcisse shows it off perfectly, shining above the jasmine, and showing up in the heart as it dirties up the herbaceous accord. Orange blossom also floats around the top, adding a powder vibe to the fragrance. Oakmoss carries everything (as it should in anything categorized as a chypre). You get your typical Bruno drydown: a bit fresh, but still dirty, with an amber-oakmoss finish.

& Price per ML
Not overly familiar with the note
I actually think this is up your alley. He's a rebel perfumer that is super skilled at blending out of San Francisco. Probably would have to order from the US not sure if he has any distribution in UK or not.
@Therapeutic Fragrance I'd be game for that but the pound is on its arse at the minute, so it'll have to wait. I've heard of fazzalari before though, gets props
All those vintages we love, this has a lot of that going on with modern vibes. Yeah good to hold off until things stabilize or companies might actually start offering some really good deals.
I feel the current version is a teeny bit different. The narcissus is more indolic and the synthetic in the base seems stronger to my nose (could be be a matter of perception). I did prefer my older bottle where the florals are sweeter. You might like St Clair's Eve. i've been really enjoying that one lately.
I don't know if Bruno follows guidelines or not, but his oakmoss would have to be virtually entirely taken out that might be it. I have the older bottle as I showed and have no desire to try the new unless this keeps getting lower. I have used 15% of my bottle just this season. I really like wearing nine sprays of it. Haven't tried that St Clair, but I like the house. Will mark it for a future sample, thanks.
Chypre Season is here my friend…
and I am here for it.✌
YES! All week I've had a different Chypre on. Might end the week with Chypre Siam.
Hi Brandon i was thinking about getting a bottle,i see a good deal online,but obviously ..a blind buy..risky. I like Mousse Illuminee but not Chypre Siam ,is it similar to CS?
Not similar at all. I don't recommend blind buying my review is the best I can do. Narcissus is a must love that is very prominent in indolic form.
@Therapeutic Fragrance indolic..that's the word I didnt want to hear.ive saw people describe jasmine as indolic. I'm an amateur at this game but I'm trying to learn, ive read that indolic can mean , a urine like smell, ?
It depends on the floral, but Indolic is associated right there with animalics. At least you know, still worth a sample.
@Therapeutic Fragrance thanks for the reply, I'll go for a sample first, I know that's the safest option. Ta
