“Champagne's funny stuff. I'm used to whiskey. Whiskey is a slap on the back, and champagne's a heavy mist before my eyes.” - Jimmy Stewart, The Philadelphia Story
Picture a bar in an old hotel. Polished wood, high backed booths, gleaming chrome accents. Well-dressed men light the long cigaretted holders of beautiful women with waves of curls and shapely dresses that cover enough to leave the most attractive aspects to the imagine. Smartly dressed, sharp tongued, witty women who can hold their own with all kinds of men.
According to beautyhabit, Champagne et Mure is
A classic sparkling Kir Royale; refreshing, dry and subtly touched by sweet berry accords and a fresh lemon twist.Champagne et Mure is a beautiful, fresh, fruity scent that is a perfect anecdote for the increasingly hot summer days. The top notes are super citrusy and sweet, and feels like a gentle, icy, cool wave washing over you. Because it is a parfum, a little goes a long way, and the staying power is fantastic. It lasts all day long on me.
While the mixture on this one doesn't change much over the dry down, that didn't seem to matter. I've worn it a couple of times now, and it is so lovely that I'm pleased it stays that way all day long. It sparkles like its namesake. It evokes images of beautifully draped dresses on fashionable women with their hair in curls. It's Katharine Hepburn in “The Philadelphia Story.” It's Rita Hayworth in “You Were Never Lovelier.” It’s classic style. It's sex appeal, without the nudity. A flirty glance. A wry smile. A well-placed zinger. A lovely scent for when you want to feel classy and chic.
