A Chypré structure presents an animalic facet that makes this fragrance seductive and intense as well as sophisticated and somehow vintage.
The references that inspired this creation are the glorious places of Italian social life of the past years. The carefree atmosphere of the Roman Dolce Vita, the sense of freedom of Wyler’s Roman Holiday, or the refined-yet-casual vibe of Minghella’s The Talented Mr. Ripley.
This is the first fragrance devoted entirely to a specific ingredient.
This composition is conceived not as a simple rendition of a flower, it is a complex composition, only centered on the Neroli as major ingredients. Because of this, it has great longevity, body and structure.

A round warm fragrance that gives me a peaceful feeling. The neroli is not harsh here and citrusy, but caught in a beam of sunlight. Balmy and creamy, for me it’s a scent of indian summer. The tiny fruitiness reminds me of all the gifts of the nature around you in the first weeks of the autumn, gently caressing your skin with soft sunshine. The warm cloud that will protect you in the colder season. Totally different than the other FB fragrances. My favorite is Under my Skin, but this one is also a winner. I like it very much.

I really did not know what to expect from this labdanum-neroli combination so I was really excited.
I had a hard time understanding the fragrance. Very sunny and bright this one. It’s fresh, sweet, chypre-green perfect for warmth and interesting enough. After a few wears, and coincidentally, after wearing L’Heure Bleue Extrait, it dawned on me: both L’Heure Bleue and Libertine Neroli have the same type of orange blossom. It’s like they are mirror images of each other. I would call Libertine Neroli L’Heure d’Après-Midi (lol) and I don’t think I would be wrong.
