Aldehydic and fresh, Couleur Primaire is a clean laundry scent made more interesting by the addition of crisp pear and dewy peony.

From Les Eaux Primordiales
Reminiscent of freshly washed laundry drying in the open air. The scent of cleanliness gives way to reassuring notes of a childhood pear sorbet. From that moment forth we’re enveloped in a bath of addictive freshness. This bouquet of jasmine and musk aldehydes is a veritable antidote to the Sunday night blues.

Fresh to death!

This scent is so fresh and up-lifting. I wish I could bathe in this everyday. It does smell a little like laundry detergent which is an absolute plus because I love the smell of cleanliness. I can't stop smelling myself when I wear this. Will be purchasing this scent asap

Feels super clean with fresh out of laundry shirt

This smells amazingly beautiful on the paper! However, on my skin, it turns very aldehydes like Chanel No. 5 for first 30 seconds then it turned to Tide with Bleach for good 3 minutes, then nice white musk. Bleach smell didn't cause any headache, I felt this is safe fragrance with dynamic journey.
Impressive clean aldehydes, because Chanel No. 5 smells like oily skin on me.
Compare to Le Labo's Aldehyde 44, this is very clean aldehyde, almost no flower and very unisex on my skin. Also, the bleach smell came back when I was not expecting, like kindly wake you up. I like aldehyde but hate the oily skin smell, so this fragrance had solved my problem. Its fun to smell the Bleach between aldehyde and white musk. Totally recommended!

Laundry Detergent

It smells straight up, sterile and astringent like Tide. If you want to smell like Tide then this is for you.
