Joan Vass

Birchbox Breakdown

You’re a woman who knows what you want—and you’ve got your eyes peeled for a rich, full fragrance that’s made for a night out, but brings a little something special when worn as a daytime scent. Well, seek and ye shall find. In L’eau de Opale, floral notes blend seamlessly with earthy bottom notes for a result that’s equal parts classic and romantic, with a hint of mystery.

How it Works

This sultry scent blends top notes of valencia orange and pink pepper with a sweet combination of cinnamon leaf, jasmine sambac, and tuberose middle notes. These slowly unfold into woody base notes of creamy musk, vanilla absolute, and golden amber.

How to Use

Spray on preferred pulse points—wrists, neck, behind ears, and/or in the crooks of your arms and knees. Feel free to give hair a light spritz if you’re feeling extra saucy.

ALCOHOL DENAT., FRAGRANCE (PARFUM), WATER (AQUA), BHT, BENZOPHENONE-2, FD&C YELLOW #5, FD&C BLUE #1, D&C RED #33

fresh & clean

I absolutely fell in love with this scent. It is light and fresh, but best of all it lasts all day! My husband couldn't get enough of it...he is even purchasing it for my birthday!

Not for me

This was was too old lady for me. The scent was strong and wasn't suited for me at all. I would recommend someone smelling this first for themselves before buying before trying it first hand

Sweet

sweet floral, more for a younger person. My 13 year old niece loved it. I Loved the packaging and the sample size was generous.

Smells nice

This is a very nice flowery smelling perfume. I wouldn't purchase it just because it's not my preference but it is very springy and fresh.

Surprising

When I first sprayed this on my wrists I thought I was going to smell like an old grandma for the whole day. But very shortly thereafter the smell changed and I loved it. You can tell it is high quality perfume because whenever I wear it, I can continue to smell it all day long without reapplying (not because it's strong smelling, but because it changes with your body throughout the day so your nose doesn't get used to it). I love this stuff. Perfume is a personal thing though - but I would definitely say give it a chance before judging it.

Old lady

I've gone back and forth trying to decide whether or not I like this scent. I feel like it smells a tad old lady just out of the bottle, but smells a little better on.

pretty powerful

It's lovely as long as you don't make the mistake of accidentally overdoing it, which is very easy to do. A little goes a long way, because even then it's pretty overpowering, in my opinion. Heaven forbid you unwittingly put on too much and are stuck in a car for more than 30 seconds.

Awesome!

I thought this would be a little powdery on me but it was a pleasant surprise once it had some time to dry and mellow. Wonderful lingering scent that didn't lose power.

I need a bottle!!

I need at least 2 bottles of this perfume. I am in love with it. I have such a hard time finding perfumes that don't give me a headache and this one definitely did not. I can't do those bright scents so this is perfect!!

Ooh baby!

Only takes a little and lays all day! 4 stars ONLY because of the price. I'm sure it would last and be worth every penny but can't afford on my budget just yet. ;) But the scents in this is a perfect balance of a little musk with a little light floral. Definitely worth it! Love this! And I'm definitely a picky gal when it comes to smells! You won't be disappointed.
