Good morning, everyone -
I'm in Balmain Ivoire, the newest incarnation. I think it's very pretty, chic and sophisticated, intensely soapy, and has a bit of a retro-glam feel. It might not be instantly recognizable but it's clearly Ivoire, especially in the dry-down, sans the bitter, herbal aspects of the 80s classic such as marigold, chamomile, asafoetida ...none of the things that might have scared people off of the original. I'd say this new one is far more wearable for the latest crowd of fragrance initiates, and as much as I love the vintage beauty, I really do feel more comfortable wearing this one for ballet.
Y'all have a great day!
easyfish - congratulations on your milestone!
