Icy violets

Missk, parfumo.net
4 July 2012
  • Summary: Insolence Eau Glacee is nothing like its predecessor Insolence EDT, at least in my opinion. While I do love the smell of violets, the original had absolutely slaughtered the beautiful flower, turning it into a candied mess which had me saying "Why Guerlain, why?" Insolence Eau Glacee thankfully has not made the same mistake. Insolence Eau Glacee opens with a rather aquatic burst, being a little similar to that of L'eau par Kenzo. It is initially very watery and fresh.

Frozen violet petals

  • Summary: This was a blind buy based on Sherapop and Missk's reviews. I am actually fan of the original Insolence, but would never wear during the day. Eau Glacée is, IMHO, recognizeable as Insolence, but a lot simpler, quieter and more wearable. The candied violets are replaced by slightly frosted but still fragrant late autumn violets (our were still blooming in October). On me, the scent seems to sit quite close to the skin.

The Nineteenth-Century Violet Soliflore Reimagined for the Twenty-first Century

Sherapop, parfumo.net
9 August 2011
  • Summary: I have not seen anyone else make this comparison, but INSOLENCE EAU GLACEE reminded me immediately of Balenciaga PARIS with a slight tinge of Tom Ford VIOLET BLONDE. To my nose, EAU GLACEE is like a watery nineteenth-century violet soliflore with some sort of twenty-first-century synthetic edge, along with some added sweetness. Maybe this composition lies about midway between the recent Balenciaga and Tom Ford violet launches.

  • Excerpt: Приятный, легкий, нежный, шлейфовый аромат. Никаких огуречных лосьонов и стиральных порошков в помине нет!

In the summertime, when the weather is high...

Florblanca, parfumo.de
28 August 2012
  • Summary: Der dritte Insolence heute ist eine herbe Enttäuschung. Mit dem EdT kam ich einfach nur nicht klar, weil er mir zu süß war, aber der Glacée ist sein Geld nicht wert! Ich rieche frischen Zitronensaft mit ein wenig Apfelsaft, das ganze geeist und mit Zucker bestäubt - fertig. Sillage ist gleich Null, die Haltbarkeit überstand bei mir kaum eine halbe Stunde! Die Guelain Politik mit diesen Insolence Flankern kann ich nicht wirklich nachvollziehen.
