La Fuite des Heures (Fleeting Moment) Fragrance Reviews

Certainly a very different early offering from Balenciaga, one of Germaine Celliers more playful compositions, the parfum exudes the warmth of a French country side idyll with jasmine as the main floral contender centred around a solid base of amber, sandalwood & vetyver. Celliers construct for this fragrance was to exhibit many olfactive facets experienced from her childhood with superb and highly complex bases including herbal/anisic accords of tarragon, thyme, hay abs. & violet leaf. The heart consists of lavender and jasmine creating a almost kitchen/garden atmosphere where both florals and savoury notes blend seamlessly to give the allusion of a quintessential French farmhouse or a grand society salon, the jasmine used in the original formula was indeed grown in the hills of Grasse & used in higher concentration than in most other parfums from that mid 20 th century period, one of Germaine Celliers best & a vintage favorite of mine for sure, almost impossible to find now in parfum strength, I guard my bottle zealously! Search for this, you will not be disappointed. . .

A perfume composed by one my favorite nose,a chypre, and such a poetic name,I am sure I would love that perfume.

Un parfum créé par la grande Germaine Cellier, un chypre au nom si poétique ne peut être que beau. Je meurs d'envie de le sentir.


On a quest to experience all of Germaine Cellier's creations, I gambled on a sealed, almost fully evaporated 1 oz bottle of La Fuite des Heures, then diluted it with perfumer's alcohol. The gamble paid off. On my first sniff, I found myself lying in the sun, on a bed of thyme, near a horse barn, in wine country. It is a time capsule in a bottle -- transporting, and utterly unique.
