Why wait for a special occasion? Treat yourself today with the Joan Vass L'eau de Opale Gift Set.

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

Smells so nice!

I love this product. I received it as a sample and was very sad when it ran out. Unfortunately I have to wait to buy more as I can't get perfume shipped to me. :(

Nice Fragrance
Sampled

I was a little underwhelmed with this scent. It didn't really stand out for me. It is nice for daytime, but I don't think it makes a statement. This doesn't smell much different than many others.

This smells SO good! I save these great samples for when I go out, and got nothing but compliments on this one!

A decent mature scent
Sampled

I'm not the biggest fan of floral notes, personally, but I'm not going to dock a perfume review because I don't like the scent.

At first this scent is quite overpowering. When I first sprayed it, I remarked to my husband that it smells like something my second grade teacher would have worn. While I don't like floral notes, as I said, I don't find this one particularly offensive. There are definitely floral scents I dislike more.

This perfume is fairly versatile. It is light enough for daily wear but sophisticated enough to wear on a fancy night out. The wear time on me was average.

If you're looking for a sweet, younger scent, this isn't the perfume for you. However, if you're after a light mature scent, definitely give this a go!

One of the best smelling perfumes! Not too potent, just right for every day use! I bought this right after using!

Different than the sample smell, but still great
SampledPurchased

I purchased this product based on the sample I received in my monthly box, but it doesn't smell quite the same. It's a mature scent that is appropriate for office or day time wear, but I wouldn't wear it for a dressy night out. It's definitely a more casual scent.

Nice Smell

Light, Airy, Refreshing. Doesn't last that long, but def would buy. Would carry it around too if I could fit it in my purse because you would have to apply constantly.

Pretty scent, but...

I received a sample of this in my mystery box. I think it's a strong yet pretty scent, but I agree that it's more for someone that is maybe 50+ . My husband said his mother would love it and be able to tell exactly who made it when I forgot the name of it.

I am very smell sensitive (I have allergies and asthma) this makes me happy. Reminds me of the holidays and happy times. This is a fragrance to consider.
