Rebottled Noel au Balcon, rebottled by Scentbird, Inc., an independent bottler from a genuine product wholly independent of Etat Libre d`Orange
Scentbird, Inc., New York, NY 10001
Notes
Honey Cinnamon Apricot Paprika Mandarin Orange
Description
Noel au Balcon is like a Christmas gift for the grown and sexy. Half way between a flirtatious temptress and a dancing queen, temperature rises just by her presence. Sweet honey notes at the start lie on a vanilla-tangerine accord and the slightly musky, solar accord of the base tells the radiant warmness of her skin under her laughing throat. In the heart, red pepper mingles with nigella in a detonating cocktail of scents. Hot red lips adorn a lavishly extraverted smile. Breathtaking!

I really love this scent for day wear. It's zesty, but with some spice too. It is not overbearing, although it goes on strong. It quickly settles down, though to a superbly wearable scent.

Nice and sweet (but not too sweet). It doesn't last very long though.

Blech, blech, blech - This smelled like an old lady who put on every perfume she ever owned, then went out to a rad dance party, sweated a whole bundle doing the jig with her dance partner, then forgot to take a bath when she got home, then went to sleep, and woke up the next morning laced in gin and perfume. No thank you. No thank you. No thank you.

From most of the reviews, you'd think that ELDO was the world's next Femme, or at least a sexed-up Ambre Narguile or Nuit de Noel. But what I mostly get is Angel, if not in notes, then in spirit. Not that that's a bad thing, really, but what my nose interprets is far removed from the hyperbolic promises of extreme naughtiness that so many reviewers have breathlessly lavished on this concoction. I appreciate the initial blast of cinnamon, but it fights with the orange note in a way that doesn't read as mulled spiced wine so much as mall store candle. So, yeah, if X-rated by today's contemporary standards means a bit of musk and some spices, hey, taste is subjective, so who am I to judge? I'll just stick to the classics like Shalimar et al, if I want some true-blue skank.

I was not a fan of this one. I tried it a couple of times and the smell was almost making me nauseous. I agree with the other reviewer that said the first spray is brash and smells like a Yankee candle. When it settles it reminds me of orange cleaner and has a chemical smell. I normally love all the scents it's comprised of, but something about this doesn't work for me. This is the first scent I dislike enough not to use and will be giving it away.

I love other Etat Libre D' Orange perfumes. However, on my skin this perfume reminded me of bug repellent spray. Sadly not one I cared for.

I had a love hate relationship with this perfume. It's strong and lasts all day however, it smells more like a room spray than a perfume. Definitely a spicy "fall" scent.

This took several days of wear for me to begin to enjoy the scent. It's bawdy, warm, fruity and good-humored. For me, Noel au Balcon shifts from an animalic note, evocative of used panties from a vending machine into the strange scent of licking the glue strip on a cellophane-windowed envelope at the post office. Spice and fruit notes drift in and out. To my nose, too scandalous for workplace wear but perfect for holiday parties or spritzing on a cold day when I'm struggling to keep my feet warm and I need a warm scent to psyche my body into shaking the chill. Can't imagine buying this again, but Noel au Balcon's mischievous nature will add excitement to the holiday season.

I LOVE Etat Libre D'Orange's creative scents, and have tried many of them...but I don't love Noel au Balcon. Too much cinnamon on my skin. The sillage is a bit too much for my taste, and it's just not my style. I'll try it again at Christmas time; it does smell like mulled cider and all the cinnamon spiced goodies during the holidays. But this is not a favorite, sorry to say! On a positive note, I'm expecting Fat Electrician next month (same house), and I already know I LOVE that one! Still a huge fan of Etat Libre D'Orange! :)

The opening is brash. A yankee candle mixed with febreeze room freshener. But once you get through the initial 10 min you will be pleasantly surprised by a warm, sophisticated and very unique scent. Walking through the airport last week I have received numerous compliments. Apricot stands out to me as a detectable note in an elegant not cheap fruity-pre-teen kind of way. I do not get the 'noel' (Christmas) connection. The scent is applicable to all seasons.

I've worn this scent now for a week and I just don't care for it. It's too powdery and smells nothing like Christmas, which is a word that I have seen for this perfume in review. I even asked my husband and he says he can not detect the notes implied. Ah well, still loved the experience.

This scent does not smell like orange to me in any facet. I don't smell the cinnamon either. In fact, it doesn't smell like Christmas to me and I am a huge Christmas fan. It smells like the 1990's and all the scents going on at that time. I will go so far as to say this was a scent from the 90's and the name has been changed. And I would not consider this an every day scent. Not my favorite but let's see how I feel about it in 15 days.

What this scent lacks in complexity it makes up for in unadulterated sex appeal. It's spicy. It's sweet. It's orange. My boyfriend loves it.

I received this perfume through Birchbox. So when I saw that Scentbird also had it, I immediately put it as my first pick. It's a little bit fruity, clean and fresh and has the right amount scent when sprayed. It's not overpowering and others comment that it's a pretty scent. I still have alot of the perfume left. A little goes a long way!!

This fragrance reminds me of the comfort of a cozy sweater whilst sitting in front of a crackling fireplace. It is warm, comfortable, and cozy mixed with the sweet and spicy of vanilla, cinnamon, and orange. Love it!

This one is such a warm, cozy fall/winter type of scent. It has a warm, honey-cinnamon, fruit type of scent that makes you think of baked goods. There's a little sweetness, but it's not overbearing.

This has everything that I love in it, but unfortunately smelled too much like a strong Christmas candle rather than a wearable fragrance. Smells very much like the potpourri we scent our home with during the holidays, very strong, and not in a good way.

The name and description of this scent are hilarious (it essentially alludes to a large busted woman). Etat Libre D'Orange always have a clever (and sometimes disgusting) wit about them. This perfume is like a Christmas Can Can dancer - spicy, sweet, and sweaty - not BO sweaty, more like a feverous heat - like your skin warmed in the sunshine/spotlight/fire after a laborious activity. It's very spicy, slightly fruity, sweet, with a touch of soft musk. Similar to Kat Von D's Sinner. I intend to spray my décolletage, wear my sexiest bra, and see where the night takes me.

If you like the least amount of floral in your gourmands, this is not for you. The floral and honey (aka honey floral) is prevalent in the opening and sticks around, but I guess I notice it b/c floral is the underling I'm looking for here. If you liked L de Lolita Lempicka or Armani Code or Burberrry Brit, you won't like this.

Gingerbread, orange, vanilla... and the hottest, spiciest red chili pepper flakes ever, it burns your nose! Interesting but I wouldn't wear this haha! L de Lolita by Lolita Lempicka is exactly this, minus the chili.
