Quelques Fleurs L'Original Eau de Parfum [Houbigant Paris]

If there's one thing that I like in perfume packaging, it's a beautiful bottle. Quelques Fleurs L'Original comes in a stylish frosted glass bottle. So, if first impressions count, this perfume makes a great one.

Quelques Fleurs starts off as a heady floral mix. Jasmine and tuberose are the flowers that really stand out, and in the first few minutes this fragrance is on the strong side. But I was pleasantly surprised once it had settled on my skin. I was left with a long-lasting white flower fragrance, which is buttery, soft and pleasing.

Quelques Fleurs is one of those perfumes that has been around forever. It was originally launched in 1912. I came across it recently because it was feature in Vogue magazine's summer scent selection last month.

If you like sexy floral fragrances you could also try L'Artisan Parfumeur's La Chasse aux Papillons which is a delicate white flower accord. Or for a sexy, evening jasmine, then Bvlgari's Jasmin Noir might be a good choice.

If you need any final confirmation that this is a sexy fragrance, and if twitter is to be trusted, Quelques Fleurs L'Original is the fragrance of the uber-sexy Dita Von Teese.
