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

Just meh

Very smell sensitive and this makes me sick. To strong so I get a headache and feel nauseous, its also crazy expensive.

TOO MUCH!

Received a sample of this, and it was too overpowering! I sprayed it on myself as it smelled nice in the beginning and afterwards I was washing my wrists as I couldn't wait to get rid of the smell!

"Nice"
Sampled

Pretty scent, but I would agree with the reviewers who said it is a little mature for me (best for women in their 50's or older?).

L'eau de Opale fragrance
Sampled

I really liked the smell of this perfume. It is unique and really lasts a long time . It also does not seem to have all the alcohol other fragrance tend to have. I will probably buy it .

A little mature for me
Sampled

This is a nice, subtle, pleasant scent, however, it is a little mature for me. I would consider this for a gift for someone in their 60s

Love this scent

It is one of my favorite scents. I love it, but I would not purchase because it is far too expensive for me. I am trying to make my sample last as long as possible. It is very clean and light.

Not so excited

I was excited to get this in my Birchbox. However, I was less excited as the nozzle fell off quite quickly and the sample spilled in my bag making everything smell quite strongly like a very "mature" lady. This may have been lovely in a much smaller whiff but all at once was very overpowering.
