L’Artisan Parfumeur La Chasse Aux Papillons

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 25 - 2012

A few weeks ago I treated myself to a new L’Artisan Parfumeur fragrance and I was completely torn between the fruity Mure et Musc and the floaty La Chasse Aux Papillons.  In the end, it came down to longevity… I had a sample of the Mure et Musc from my Discovery Coffret and although it smelled divine, it disappeared from my skin after a very short 40 or so minutes.  La Chasse Aux Papillons it was!

La Chasse Aux Papillons is a beautiful Spring fragrance, almost the antithesis to everything I usually love in a perfume.  I generally favour warmth, spice, leather… everything that’s dark and best reserved for Wintery days or cool evenings.  This is light, floaty and a little bit ethereal.  It opens with a gentle fan of tuberose and orange blossom, a combination that evokes the kind of feelings that I associate with a beautifully, sunny day.  It’s a little bit soapy in a freshly laundered way but this element is as light on the nose as the tuberose.  My one disappointment with this beautiful fragrance is that longevity-wise, I don’t get much more than a couple of hours wear from it.

For me, there’s nothing overtly sexy about La Chasse Aux Papillons, it breathes too much light and playfulness for that, it makes me want to step into a layered chiffon skirt and feel a warm breeze against my bare skin.  Realistically, it’s more of a casual jeans and white tee kinda fragrance, only fashion bloggers and models wear chiffon skirts right?  Anyway, it fills me with hope of warm days and white flowers, and frankly, that’s no bad thing.

L’Artisan Parfumeur La Chasse Aux Papillons is available to buy instore and online at Harrods, priced at £78 for 100ml EdT

  1. My god what a well written review, I actually feel like I might have an idea how this smells based on your words alone. It sounds beautiful. x

    The bottle is sooo cute! Makes me want to own it regardless of the smell!
    I always believe perfumes should be personal to you and from the sounds of this post this seems like the perfect perfume for you!
    lovely blog, following you, follow back? Xoxox

    I can only echo Debbie’s words – sounds right up my street. It is also available on QVC where a wonderful chap called Florian describes it as when you were a little girl and played in fields chasing butterflies – I must say I am deeply tempted. Thanks for this

    I have this fragrance and love it, even though like you, I’m not a big fan of tuberose or florals. It’s a lovely soft, ephemeral fragrance just as the name suggests…chasing butterflies. This makes a very safe buy for any woman I would imagine (I love it, my mother also loves it). The longevity is indeed poor for the price, but it’s lovely while it lasts.

    BTW Charlotte as you love Tea For Two, you will perhaps enjoy Dzing!…I don’t get any circus skank from it at all…just leathery musk with a sweet drydown

    Ahh! Pretty pretty pretty.

    I love La Chasse aux Papillons, too – it’s just such a gorgeous, floaty Spring scent. I think you nailed it with “ethereal;” that’s exactly how I’d put it! x
