Brand Imaginary Authors
A stunning portrait of Paris in the fashionable 50’s, Audrey Blavot’s L’Orchidée Terrible tells the story of Honey Martine, a young girl from England who, while on holiday with her family in Paris, is discovered by a fashion designer and thrust into the glamorous world of haute couture. Her mantra “I’ll try anything once” leads Honey from one adventure to the next and stirs in her an insatiable lust for trouble.
Though the true identity of Audrey Blavot has never been revealed it is rumored that she was, herself, a model or designer of the era. A post address in the 8th Arrondissement is published in each of her books but no one has ever been seen coming or going from the residence. Fans now leave orchids on the doorstep as a tribute to the elusive author.
L'Orchidee Terrible was launched in 2012. The nose behind this fragrance is Josh Meyer.

Wow, this is not a shy fragrance, and in that regard, lives up to its name.
It comes out screaming with an almost overwhelming sweet synthetic orchid-aldehyde hit, eventually calms
down (comparatively speaking) to a very clean floral musky soap, it almost squeaks (perhaps that's the satin note in there?)
I don't detect any honey notes, and there's something that smells almost chemical plastic floral on my skin.
It does last for ages, but overall, it's just too intense (and slightly nauseating) for me
