Mon Guerlain description
The iconic house of Guerlain’s latest perfume, Mon Guerlain, is a study in how boldness can be complex in perfume, and how a scent made with simple ingredients can be incredibly sophisticated.
The main notes in this scent are Tahitensis vanilla (which Shalimar lovers will instantly recognize), album sandalwood, jasmine sambac, and Carla lavender.
These four notes combine in majestic ways. The quality of the ingredients is immediately apparent in their power and definition, making the texture of this perfume as intriguing as the notes. Mon Guerlain is a statement scent – there is nothing little girlish going on. Each note is tuned to make strong, individual expressions on the skin, while still harmoniously blending their edges into one another. The top notes, heart and base all take their time in evaporating, and with ingredients this refined, the power in Mon Guerlain is one of the best reasons to experience it.
Each aspect of this fragrance is meticulously presented – the vanilla is rich and silky instead of sugary-sweet. The lavender is as clean and herbal as it can get, without the suffocating soapiness. The sandalwood is so precise it could be carved into this scent rather than distilled. And finally, the jasmine sambac smooths the transitions between the notes like an impeccably refined hostess moving through an elegant house party.
In short, Mon Guerlain is stunning from beginning to end. The power, sophistication and depth on display are not to be missed, and for vanilla perfume fans, this is a must-have selection.
