Fragrances -Guerlain -L'Heure Bleue

Love it! It does remind me of Oscar del a Renta a lot but it is a deeper and richer scent. My husband likes this one way better than the Oscar scents. It last forever on myself and the dry down is very warming and not synthetic at all. I have many Guerlain perfumes and this is another I have recently added to my collection.

Fragrances -Guerlain -Shalimar Souffle de Parfum

I actually really like this perfume. I wish though that it wasn’t under the Shalimar name because if this was made in a different bottle and named something else I think people would love this scent more. I think it being compared to Shalimar so strongly is kinda unfair imo. But I’m the type who just loves to wear a good perfume names don’t matter too much to me. Onto to the scent I really love the citrus opening if the bergamot was stronger it would probably be a touch more Shalimar like. But I love the citrus opening of this it smells so fresh but not clean just fresh and citrusy. Then as it goes on I get the beautiful Jasmine with the orange blossom it’s lovely. Finally I like the vanillas and I’m a musk lover so I enjoy this a lot!

What I love is that the white musk is not laundry like at all. To me it’s a smooth sweet musk that pairs well with the vanillas. As I type this I catch whiffs of the vanilla and I really adore it. I bought this on a blind buy due to my love of white florals so I’m super happy! I purchased the 3oz bottle and I adore the bottle..... so pretty! I would buy this again it’s wonderful. But I would also like Pafume initial brought back I just wanted to throw that out as that was very Shalimar like so why it was d/c’d is beyond me?!? I want to get this in the intense as I do wish this was a bit stronger. Still this is a lovely scent so I’m a happy girl. :)

I am so sorry but this is a no no for me. Smells of baby powder and on my skin stays barely an hour. Is this really the most loved perfume around? 😱


Fragrances -Guerlain -Vetiver

Guerlain VÉTIVER. [1959; nose: Jean-Paul Guerlain]. Aromatic-Spicy-Woody Type.

TÊTE: sparkling aldehydes, grass notes, coriander, lemon, lime, menthol, mandarin;
COEUR: clove, nutmeg, pepper, jasmine, tobacco;
FOND: vetiver, coumarin/hay, cedar

The classic masculine and definitive vetiver scent for decades. Dapper, crisp, refined, professional, sober. Grassy, vernal, outdoorsy in feel; smells like a warm green meadow or sunlit golf course in late-May. Clove confers its only hint of sweetness; the rest is sharp lawn-y vibrance. Modern reformulation has pruned it of the meatier tobacco brûle it had, pre-1990, and most noticeably, the chalky orris concavity that used to bind the whole scent together, most noticeably in the rooty drydown. But it's still a joy and a marvel. Jean-Paul Guerlain formulated this when he was just a very young man, and the whole perfume world was blown away that the kid, and heir to the Guerlain dynasty, was already such a great talent.

The big trick with vetiver is never allowing it to smell Goth or broodingly subterranean; Guerlain always keeps it bright, intriguing, dapper.

Fragrances -Guerlain -Shalimar Souffle Intense

I have a weak spot for Oriental Florals and Oriental Vanillas (one of my favourite perfumes is Dior Addict) and I've always liked Guerlain Shalimar but I didn't really care for Shalimar Souffle; too boring, weak and generic. So when Shalimar Souffle Intense EdP was released I didn't expect much but of course I had to get a sample. Much to my surprise I fell in love with it immediately and I've been wearing it daily for months now; it's that addictive. Souffle Intense just suits my personality & skin chemistry perfectly.

Shalimar Souffle Intense is deeper, richer, warmer and more complex than regular Souffle. More of a true Oriental, with the distinctive "Guerlinade" notes. It opens with citrus notes; not sharp but fresh and bright. You can also detect the orange blossom but it is subdued. Then I smell creamy Jasmine. Nothing overly sweet; a bit powdery and dewy. Balsamic creamy. The drydown is heavenly: milky, spicy vanilla, sweet benzoin and some smoky white musk. It leaves a very sensuous, feminine yet comforting trail. While it is more intense than original Souffle, it's perfectly fine to wear it during the day.
Shalimar Souffle Intense wears close to the skin; the sillage is moderate but longevity is +6 hours. I can still smell it on my clothes for days after wearing.

I would say this is a beautifully done perfume; a very well-balanced Oriental Floral. IMO one of Thierry Wasser's best creations. The cobalt blue bottle is gorgeous as well.
Shalimar Souffle Intense does have the typical Shalimar "vibe" but it's more easy to wear. If you like perfumes like Dior Addict, Givenchy Organza Indecence and/or Armani Code I highly recommend getting a sample. This is a flanker worth trying!

Guerlain Shalimar Souffle Intense EdP. Released: 2017. Notes: Green notes, White Flowers, India Jasmine Sambac, Orange Blossom Water Accord, Tahitian Vanilla, Madagascar Vanilla, Musk, Tolu Balsam, Benzoin.
Available in 50ml/1.6 oz. Price €107.
