Peut-Etre is another fragrance of the La Collection, which is devoted to old and famous Lancome's scents which were discontinued. Peut-Etre was created in 1937. and featured with rose, lily and linden blossom. It was reorchestrated by Nathalie Lorson, and launched in 2008.

Poetic words about the fragrance from the Lancome site: "Alone in her beloved French garden, a woman wanders among roses, lilac, iris and jasmine. She is thinking of him, knowing that he loves her but hoping he will soon show her a sign that will banish all her doubts. A breeze arises and strokes her skin, carrying fragrant petals softly into her hair. She closes her eyes and lets the aura of the garden envelop her senses. She hears footsteps, opens her eyes and looks into his. She sees a new and special intensity in his gaze. And is something hidden in his hand? The moment is electric. Something important is going to happen…peut-être…perhaps". (lancome)

The composition opens with fresh seringe flowers, there is a mix of iris and Bulgarian rose essence in the heart, and comforting amber and musk in the base. It comes in 50ml (1.7fl.oz) bottle.

Peut-Etre (La Collection Fragrances) Fragrance Reviews


Very long lasting fragrance despite the few ingredients. The iris stands out and gives this fragrance a very sweet, powdery almost gourmand feel but you could smell the rose, amber and musk at the same time as well.


This is a very lovely iris and rose scent, of the vintage face powder variety, but to me avoiding actually smelling like make-up.
Peut-Etre is a perfect pink powder puff of a fragrance, that grows more powdery the longer it wears on the skin. The star really is the iris, but it's definitely well trimmed as it's all floral, with no greenness or roots. It however remains very warm, with a noticeable sweetness and is blushed tenderly with rose. This fragrance is ultra feminine, but I agree with Garback that it is somewhat virginal. This to me is for the girl who loves white lace, vintage clothes and old Hollywood movies, and has a beautiful antique vanity in her bedroom but doesn't quite yet understand sensuality. She loves the idea of red lipstick, stiletto heels and lounging in beautiful lingerie but isn't really brave enough for it herself.
The scent reminded me a lot of L'Instant de Guerlain in how it wore on my skin - very powdery and feminine, cuddly and inviting - but is far less sweet than L'Instant. I would wear this when I wanted to feel very girly and innocent, but not smell like a fruit cupcake. If I didn't own L'Instant I'd want it in my collection. Lovely sillage and great staying power for me, easily 8 hours.
Edit: I forgot to mention that this scent to me held up my notion that for a mainstream line, Lancome do produce very fine rose fragrances, paying homage to their company symbol perhaps, displaying more diversity than other houses who like to use the note. With Peut-Etre, Mille and Une Roses, Magnifique, and the two Tresor rose based flankers they have quite the nice collection.


Never thought I would like a fragance from Lancome. This is a very nice dayscent and I feel kind and female wearing it. Women around like it, I think men find it too virginlike...Unfortunatly the scent fade quickly.


Peut-etre... peut-etre que oui, peut-etre que non... but in the end this is a big sensual luscious luxury vintage OUI!
It smells hypnotique, powerful yet soft and enveloping. Nothing modern here according to latest standards. Here comes a true oldie, probably "revised", still steaming of feminine sensuality. This is a perfume/smell that I would expect on one of those European ladies dressed in a perfect casual-but-chic cachemire pull in white and camel tones for daytime and black dress with high heels at night. A never dying outfit, perhaps banal at first sight, yet sound and solid in depths.


Peut-Etre is not my cup of tea. I love iris, but not so sweet. Too much sweetness because of amber. It feels like scent of a lipstick or a powder. And no sillage at all. For me Peut-Etre is kind of intimate fragrance for girl in her boudoir in the morning when she lies in her silk lingerie.


Peut-Etre is one of the greatest powerful feminine scents on me.


Peut-Etre is what I would call a "glove perfume," because it wears largely as a skin scent, with both gentle leather and a thin layer of flowers. The listed notes include amber & musk in the base, which might be why I read it as leathery...and I do like most ambers.

The lasting power is good, more than 5 hours on my skin. The sillage is minimal, and the tone it establishes at the start is largely what you get for the whole ride.
