Mon Guerlain – a short review
My review might come a bit late since Mon Guerlain has been out for quite some time but I’ve worn it a lot lately and it has grown on me.
Housed in the beautiful quadrilobe bottle and coloured pink, it’s been heavily featured thanks to the muse Guerlain has chosen, the exquisite Angelina Jolie. An invisible tattoo, Mon Guerlain is a combination of exceptional quality raw materials: Carla Lavender from Provence, Sambac Jasmine from India, Album Sandalwood from Australia and Vanilla Tahitensis from Papua New Guinea.
All of the raw materials are sourced at sustainable crops that Guerlain buys their raw materials from every year and they really are the best nature has to offer.
The fragrance itself is like a breath of fresh air, light and refined at the beginning thanks to the most delicious lavender and as the time passes it deepens as more notes unravel to reveal a heart rich in intoxicating and ethereal jasmine sweetened by luscious vanilla and the silkiest creamy sandalwood at the base.
Although the combination of those materials used is nothing ground breaking, the mastermind Thierry Wasser is has produced a sensual fresh oriental fragrance that will appeal to the mass market Guerlain wants to expand too. If you combine the fragrance with the scented products that accompany it you will be wrapped in the warmest, most luxurious scented cloud for days!
