Perfume: Boucheron ‘Quatre Intense’


Boucheron Quatre Intense 

The sun is setting over Paris and Place Vendôme bathes in the rosy glow of its last rays. At the corner of the square, the windows of Maison Boucheron sparkle with gemstones. Suddenly the Quatre woman strides into the square and all eyes are on her, captivated by her beauty. On her finger she wears the symbol of her boldness and strength of character, the Quatre Radiant ring in pink gold. A fragrant whisper of her new Eau de Parfum Intense Quatre drifts from her neckline. Her signature.

My Thoughts

Boucheron Quatre is a perfumery classic, which is why I was so excited when I discovered they were launching a new twist on it, Boucheron Quatre Intense eau de parfum. This perfume opens with sweet, fruity notes of pear, peach and redcurrant, which is slightly offset by the bitter orange. The heart is filled with rich, feminine florals of orange blossom, jasmine, rose and Pétalia (which is a powdery rose with a hint of lychee according to google!). At the base of this fragrance, there is sensual musk, vanilla wood, warm amber and sweet sandalwood. Boucheron Quatre Intense is a rich, fruity-floral gourmand perfume, it has all the sweetness of the vanilla, peach, pear and amber, yet it has a beautiful warmth to it with the sandalwood and amber, these notes give it a real exotic depth. As for the florals, they are heady, feminine and rich. Whilst Boucheron Quatre Intense is not my style; it’s too sweet and feminine for me, however, it undeniably sexy and delicious, the ingredients used are top quality and the depth and complexity of it is beautiful. If sweet, feminine, fruity-floral perfumes are for you, then Boucheron Quatre Intense is one you need to try pronto!

Boucheron Quatre Intense eau de parfum launches exclusively in Harrods on 1st May 2016 & nationwide at selected department stores from the 16th May 2016.
