Ombre Mercure Fragrance Reviews

This is beautiful. Definite powdery, iris elements but the piece de résistance is in the dry down. Unbelievably warm, spicy amber vanilla. It is a delightful "blind buy" for me!

Ombre Mercure looked like a powder bomb from the notes but that is not what I found it to be when I wore it. To my nose this is the scent of sweet violet and sandalwood soap. It has that strange Aspertame note that sweet violet fragrance seem to manifest on my skin. Instead of going powdery, it is quite oriental but with an intense soapy streak. What iris there is in this composition was not able to fight it's way through for my nose to smell it. For me, this was an absolute scrubber.

Beautiful Iris - Amber like base perfume. Warm and delicate. I'm covered with the most delightful aroma which everybody ask about.

I sampled this on the back of my hand the other day, and first impressions are pretty favourable. This may be "marketed" at women, but I would happily wear it, especially out at night, for that added touch of sophisitication, or mystique ...

Perhaps there's nothing revolutionary about it, as some reviewers suggest, but to my untrained nose it seems like a very accomplished and alluring fragrance, with excellent projection and longevity.

Give it a whirl!!

Egads, this is vile! It's like parma violets mixed with cough syrup, and that's no exaggeration.

Soapy, medicinal sweetness. If you want to scare a guy away, then this will do the job, for sure.

Ombre Mercure is definitely in the same vein as
Mon Parfum Chéri by Annick Goutal for me; a powdery patchouli iris combo.Ombre is less dusty or vintage smelling in my opinion but even though neither is for me,I find Mon Parfum Chéri more intriguing.Ombre Mercure might be more generally likable,though.

I recommend sampling both if you care for either of these two.

Very nice, but, just doesn't last long enough and the drydown is just another vanilla amber. I'm so bored with this

sort of reminds me of lamome, only not as sweet, minus the fruit and lamome is far less espensive and lasts a hell of a lot longer

It's like being transported to a century ago, when perfumes were opulent, rich, powdery, feminine.
This could well have been a scent of the roaring 1920es, on Zelda's neck, Francis Scott at her knees, jazz music all around.
I do not detect rose at all. No sweet notes either (I'm glad).
On my skin iris and violet are prominent. There's also a bitter background note that I love, as if Bandit were peeping out from Caron's Violette Precieuse shoulders.
There's a certain air that makes it similar to Guerlain's Vol de Nuit and the powdery note is reminiscent of Chanel n°5.
Very refined scent, very lovely, I'm not sure everybody will love it, many will find it a deja vu, yes, maybe. But it's not a bad deja vu, so why not trying it?
I blindly bought a bottle and I'm in love.

Wow. There is yummy candy vibe going on that reminds me of the coating on Jordan Almonds. A very well behaved patchouli is so damn smooth it's insane. Blended they compliment each other. It's almost like a vanilla bean shake with a swirl of caramel. Rich, creamy and sweet with a little overcooked caramel adding just the right amount of burned boldness. This smells very seductive and opulent. If the chemicals were removed, this could be sold in the gourmet candy isle. Delicious with a capital D! Too bad all I got was a sample, this is going on my want list today!

Amazing juice of iris, violet, ambra, patchouly and more! Sweet seduction. Very feminine on the warm, dark side. Will go and buy it in an hour when shops open in Italy!!
