Description
Style de Paris’s twin pairs of top and heart notes make this fragrance uniquely elegant and enjoyable. The citrusy powder in the orange blossom mirrors the opening Italian mandarin, the red grapefruit shimmers with a lovely violet overlay, and the tropical lushness of the pear matches gardenia’s exotic humidity.

Style de Paris description

Catharine Malandrino’s line of fragrances is a real treat. Her perfumes have such a wry and intelligent wit, and they take daring and fun chances with texture and structure to create entirely new scent experiences on the skin.

If you’re a veteran of the perfumery scene, her line will show you completely original perspectives, and if you’re just starting out, her line can teach you a lot about how perfumes are made, and you’ll smell amazing as you learn your notes.

Style de Paris is no exception. The top and heart notes seem to be twinned, so you experience both at the same time, and the dry down is only one note: patchouli, which runs below the fragrance like an underground spice river.

The citrusy powder in the orange blossom mirrors the opening Italian mandarin, the red grapefruit shimmers with a lovely violet overlay, and the tropical lushness of the pear matches gardenia’s exotic humidity.

This twinning magic is irresistible, and creates an accord of its own. This perfume soon transforms into a pulsing kaleidoscope of citrus and floral tones, and you can either concentrate on one note or just let the crystalline expanse of it flow over you. (If you’re curious about how to play with the traditional pyramid note structure in a scent, Style de Paris is a complex and alluring example.)

The matching of the top and heart notes also instantly makes Style de Paris a four-season wear. The patchouli base is strong enough to handle the winter months, and the floral backing of the citrus prevents it from evaporating too quickly. This is a perfume that can go with anything year-round, and will complement any look. It may appear a bit on the feminine side at first spray, but this fragrance is entirely appropriate for men to wear – the floral/spice balance is just right.

And its longevity is remarkable also. You will still be able to detect a faint but steady trace of the patchouli the next day, so if your concern is over whether this scent can keep up with you, rest assured it will.

Style de Paris is one of the most unique scents we have in our collection. Its versatility and creative structure are exciting and new, and it is a no-brainer for matching with anything you have in your clothing wardrobe. Catharine Malandrino’s other perfume, Romance de Provence, is also worth a look if you are a gourmand addict. Roses, jasmine, and sweet, sugary apple pie. Delicious!

I found this perfume to be strong and bold, just what I wanted to exude in my office. Unlike other users I found that this perfume had good staying power and had initial dark notes that I did not expect. It does dry light with subtle undertones of gardenia lingering. This scent was very feminine and a little of a stretch for me. I would try it again for sure.

A little about my preference I love aqua di Parma Iris perfume and I dislike Happy by Clinique. I tend to enjoy florals and clean scents more than citrus or spice! Style de Paris is a soft, clean, light floral that goes on like a body spray more than a perfume. It smells strong of alcohol when first sprayed but quickly dries to a light scent. It has a very similar smell to a fragrance called Dreamer by Gap. Two separate people ask me if I was wearing Dreamer today at work. I would recommend this perfume for an office setting or workout setting. You will need to reapply during the day not tons of staying power. I gave it three stars which on my scale is perfectly wearable but nothing special. I really can't say anything negative but not much positive either. I will use my scentbird sample of this during the month but I can't wait to try my next one in the que!

I absolutely LOVE this fragrance. It initially smelled very soft; almost too soft to notice. However after spraying, I kept getting whiffs of myself and could not stop sniffing. It's the type of fragrance that one has to be in your personal space to truly appreciate and once they're in it, they may never want to leave! BUY!

I love this perfume. It's my new go to. It doesn't last a long time, but that's why the sample size is perfect to carry in yiur purse for a touch up later in the day. To me it smells like the best dryer sheet you've ever smelled.

This is a fragrance I've sampled in the past, and it is the only sample I have used to the last drop. It has a fresh, sensual scent that is unlike anything else I've ever tried.

Really nice and unusual blend of fruity and floral. The only problem is that it doesn't last very long. After about 2 hours all I end up with is a little patchouli.

I'm not a fan. Received some once in a subscription box. Smells like a knock off of Flowerbomb by Viktor Rolf. No one else around me appreciate.
