Bourjois are better known today for their makeup range although perfume Evening in Paris (1928) continues to evoke an era when the brand was more intimately associated with fragrance. They are not quite ready to launch themselves into really glamorous upmarket perfume launches for now, but meanwhile, they are newly offering a quatuor of fragrances in the masstige market - considering their prices - and mass-market - considering their distribution scale...
The quatuor comprises Glamour Chic, Glamour Fantasy, Glamour Lovely, Glamour Excessive representing as is so usual four types of feminine personalities and experiences.
Glamour Chic "embodies contemporary chic". It is a powdery oriental perfume which has character, we are told. It is a subtle skin scent. Notes feature fig, "rich and dense" florals, sandalwood, and vanilla.
Glamour Fantasy is a gourmand fruity chypre singing an "hymn to sensoriality". It opens on cherry and raspberry macaron notes. In the heart a sugary strawberry is paired with a sensual jasmine. Patchouli in the base enhances the intense sensuality of the fragrance.
