safe & trusted since 1999
My Mum wore this fragrance her whole life till we finally exhausted all avenues to source it. It's her favourite and am looking to purchase it for her upcoming very special birthday.
nicest fragrance I've ever worn; HOPING TO FIND IT AGAIN
HELLO,I LIVED IN NEWZEALAND UNTIL I WAS 30,I USED TO USE QUADRILLE.NEVER A DAY WENT BY THAT I WAS NOT STOPPED AND ASKED WHAT I WAS WEARING PERFUME WISE.BACK IN 1966/67 I COULD ONLY BUY 1.20 8TH OF AN OUNCE,IT COST ME 1 POUND I SHILLING,OH HOW ID LOVE TO GET MY HANDS ON SOME MORE,SAME GOES FOR A PERFUME CALLED K L ALSO NO LONGER.WHY DO THEY DO THIS TO US GIRLS.JUST BRING THE GOOD ONES BACK AND WE WILL ALL BUY THEM.CHEERS.
I was given a bottle of Quadrille in 1959 - I have never found a perfume to equal it. Why did Balenciaga stop producing it? I have one tine bottle left and I can still smell the remains of this lovely perfume.
It's been nearly two years since I wrote my last glowing comments comcerning Quadrille by Balenciaga, on this site. To my regret, I've just opened my last reserve bottle of Quadrille. When it's gone, so will one of the finest fragances it has been my pleasure to enjoy. I've watched as the price of rare, phantom bottles skyrocketed in price on the internet, now ranging near 10 times Quadrille's original price. Just like hundreds of discering appreciative adherants to Q., I'm on every waiting list from America to Paris. I surmise that Balenciaga is NOT going to remanufacture Quadrille and it will just be a sensory memory to all of us in the coming years. As the coming years pass by, I will always remember it as a classic fragrance, bold, sweet and linguring in the imagination. To all of you out there who have written praisingly about Quadrille, I salute you and smile just thinking of the day it might become available again.
I first learned of this fragrance on a trip to Paris in 1960 and I wore it for my wedding n 1961. It has been a favorite all these years and am devastated that it is no longer available. I have a tiny drop in a bottle and I won't get rid of it. Please, please bring it back. Please, please tell Balenciaga to bring it back.
i have used this fragrance since 1964. i walked into an upscale jewelry store and as you walked in, you were hit by this incredible fragrance. it is getting very hard to find and i will say that they changed the fragrance in the late 1980's. it's still the best of the best. and men really do say, what is that you are wearing. i rarely find it in a cologne, unless on ebay. i just pour it down my back and it spreads over your shoulders and down base of spine to legs. i would really like to have lots of big splash bottles. to last at least the rest of my life.
The comments on this fragrance are very intriguing, it's nice to know Quadrille brings back memories for so many folks, but could someone please provide a more detailed description of this scent, and possibly with a comparison to similar fragrances?
I first was introduced to Quadrille back in the early 1970s when a girlfriend of mine, was sample sprayed in the perfume isle of Bloomingdales, in New York City. She asked me my opinion and I obliged by taking a sniff at the nape of her neck. My knees got weak and nearly buckled on the spot. I'd never been affected like that before (or since) by any fragrance worn by my lady loves over the decades. Luckily, the last chance I found to buy some was taken advantage of and I purchased ten bottles on the spot. Now, my wonderful wife wears it just for me at those very special moments when she's in the mood. In she'll come to the bedroom and the aroma hits me like it always has, my knees get weak, I swoon in place, my heart races and I smile broadly. No other product has that effect on me, I doubt any will. When it becomes available again, put me down for another ten bottles.
My mother has always worn this fragrance and would buy me a bottle every year but now it seems hard to find. How can I get some? Every web site has a waiting list.
I am a very sentimental woman and I bought the perfume because It was a favorite of my late aunt (my favorite aunt). When I opened the bottle it was like having her here with me again. The scent is very subtle but rich and it makes me feel incredibly feminine when I wear it. I can see why she loved it so and now so do I.
i own a btl never used.bought in 1955.no box. would part with it for a fair price
I found Quadrille a couple of years ago and the guys who came close enough to me, loved it! I love it too, but can't find it anymore! Where can I get it?
OK, so I'm a sentimental old bat, but I will always have a soft spot for Quadrille, since my late husband bought me some on our honeymoon in 1962.
I have been searching for this favorite parfume for a few years now....everyone always loved it--especially men. It's so soft and sensual..so elated I finally found more--it's a treasure!!!! Thanks!
Just perused the comments....
This "old, sweet" lady would love to find Quadrille at an affordable price, of course, and in the locale of Raleigh NC. I had an aunt (now deceased) who was given Quadrille by her beloved husband for years (in the D.C. area).
Quadrille is a hard to find fragrance. But if you are lucky enough to own a bottle hold on tight,. It's elegant and very classy. A sweet, mossy, lovely Chypre. A timeless classic.
Even though I do qualify as an "old lady" (pushing 70) like correspondent Ann I get compliments from all age groups whenever I wear Quadrille. I don't like sweet perfumes and Quadrille doesn't seem that way to me, but I guess everyone's nose is different. However, a lot of the modern perfumes seem to smell more like chemicals than perfume. Heard that Ballenciaga is going to discontinue Quadrille - is this true?
Well, for all us old ladies, all I can say is the young men I know seem to love it. I get compliments from all ages of men and "older" women.
Always check the return policy of the on line perfume companies. Some companies allow you to return the fragrance so they can resell it as long as you package it in the original box and every thing looks new. The problem is once a bottle has been sprayed or used it begins to age more quickly. So, I think they sent me a bottle of stale Quadrille because it smells off. I'm quessing a few customers may have returned the bottle and for all I know it could have been resold numerous times before it hit my doorstep.
Live and learn.
My Mom brought this home from a cruise many, many years ago and I can now find it online - yippee!!! Perhaps we can persuade the Balenciaga house to begin making this again - IF it is truly not made anymore - and if not - how are we able to still purchase it???
Old world and other worldly. Classic sent that will send you to the moon! It is magical and mystical. High end and lovely. The rich jasmine sings out on a high note like a smooth trumpet.
I have finally found you after searching for 25 years. Thank heaven for the Internet. Women & especially men love this perfume.
I am so sad that quadrille is not being produced any longer. The perfumery where I purchase has informed me that his supply is dwindling and he will not be able to restock - help me find another source.
Nothing can compare to
this old world scent.
Can't believe I've finally found Quadrille. Have been looking for it for about five years. Sometimes find it at flea markets, but very, very rarely find it in a store anymore. Thanks
Very elegant . . . smells like nothing else in the world. A little old world, but so what? Named after a Spanish dance . . . I happen to prefer Cialenga, also by Balenciaga. That one is awesome. Also, very hard to find.
I'm so glad I've finally found this wonderful scent. It's from France and extremely hard to find. I've only been able to find it in the Islands and had friends bring it back if they went. I can't wear heavy smelling perfumes. This is the best scent I've ever had and am so glad to finally find it. After 30 years it's the only perfume I'll wear.
If anyone ever comes across the perfume, please leave word. I assume it is not available anymore. This is such a wonderful fragrance!
It's been over 20 years since I've been able to find this perfume. It's my absolute favorite scent. Brings back lots of memories...
Moss; musk; animalic; warm; bourbon(or scotch?).
Have been a huge fan of this hard to find fragrance for years. It's unique and one of a kind.
Thank you, thank you! I have searched for this fragrance for the last twenty years in stores and finally (duh!) decided to go online to find it. It was the accompaniment to some of the most romantic liasons I enjoyed. Just to inhale the light scent again will bring back wonderful memories. And maybe a new beau?
I fell upon this fragrance in February 2001. Being the perfume nut I am, smelling so many I can't count, this by far is my favorite of all. There is no other perfume like it. It is not over powering, but you feel so pretty when you put it on. I hope it will be around for a long time to come, and you will not regret trying this perfume. I just can't believe I have never heard anyone talk about Quadrille.
LISTEN UP GUYS (and gals;
IF YOU REALLY WANT TO IMPRESS AND PLEASE THE LADY IN YOUR LIFE, WTHOUT OFFENDING YOUR NOSE, GET QUADRILLE! I FOUND THIS LIGHT, FRESH, AIRY, FLOWERY/FRUITY FRAGRANCE ABOUT 25 YEARS AGO. THIS IS NOT A "HEAVY LIL' OLE LADYS HEAVY" SMELL THAT PRECEEDS HER INTO THE ROOM AN STAYS FOR DAYS AFTERWARDS. NOR IS IT A "NOW" OVERPOWERING CLUB SMELL THAT YOU MIGT FIND FOLLOWING A PLANE THAT HAS JUST SPRAYED FOR BUGS. (no posion here!)
THIS FRAGRANCE WHISPERS AS YOU WALK INTO A ROOM AND SAYS "I AM A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN" NOT A FEMLE THAT HAS TO "DEMAND" YOUR ATTENTION.
THIS IS AS FEMININ AS POSSIBLE AND PLEASANT TO YOU BERORE - DURING AND AFTER. TRY IT - YOU CAN'T GO WRONG!!!
