I expect a lot from my perfume. I want it to make me feel beautiful, confident, polished, and equipped to handle whatever challenges my day will bring. It’s the final accessory I put on before I bounce out the door – one quick spritz and I’m ready to take on the world!
I wear my fragrance for me, but I definitely want others to notice. This is my invisible signature, a mysterious trail of magical mist that I leave behind. I secretly hope people will get a whiff, look around, and wonder who smells so incredibly fabulous. I’m always searching for that perfect scent that will multi-task and carry me through the work day, and then transition seamlessly out to drinks and dinner.
The perfume I’m totally obsessed with right now is Mon Guerlain, by the great classic French Fragrance House, Guerlain. I can’t get enough of this juice – I’m absolutely addicted. And what I really love about it is that it feels very natural to me, like I’ve been wearing it my whole life. It’s not too ‘perfumery’, doesn’t smell too heavy, floral or spicy. It smells just like a wispy, sexy veil that dances on my skin – the way perfumes are meant to be.
Mon Guerlain is characterized as a fresh Oriental fragrance with luscious Gourmand undertones, and truly lives up to its name. Master Perfumer Thierry Wasser created it as a tribute to the femininity of the 21st century –a strong, free and sensual femininity– as inspired by the expressive, dynamic and accomplished women making strides in our world today. Guerlain melds their 190 years of classical expert craftsmanship with the modern sensibility of this free-spirited woman, and the result is a beautifully balanced creation that joyfully reflects her moods and emotions .
Mon Guerlain utilizes exceptional, precious raw materials, and opens with rare aromatic Carla Lavender from Provence, evolving into a velvet heart of heady Sambac Jasmine from India, and blending gorgeously with a base of smooth Album Sandalwood from Australia and sweet Vanilla Tahitensis from Papua New Guinea. The iconic ‘quadrilobe’ bottle, first designed in 1908, was inspired by an alchemist’s bottle, and the rosy-hued fluid reminds me of bubbly pink champagne. The bottle offers a contrast between strong graphic lines and sensual curves, again portraying an homage to contemporary femininity.
Sophisticated and delicious – what could be more perfect?
