Bill Blass Parfum Concentree ($150) is a sophisticated and fresh Summer fragrance. It has a strong floral, green-garden smell that is perfect for this time of year. I recently tried a sample of it, and I was happy and surprised that it kept its scent far longer than most perfumes.
It is blended with neroli, galbanum, mandarin, hyacinth, lily of the valley, tuberose, and jasmine. The .7-ounce bottle is also very sweet and demure, with a taupe grosgrain ribbon tied in a bow around the nape. The scent is also available in as an Eau de Parfum ($95), a body cream ($95), a body lotion ($48.50), and a body powder ($60).
