GUERLAIN

Guerlain is a French perfume, cosmetics and skincare house. It was founded in 1828, when Pierre-François Pascal Guerlain opened his perfume store at 42, rue de Rivoli in Paris.* The first flagship store opened in 1840. The business was handed down generation to generation, until it was purchased by LVMH in 1994. The products are available online and at retail makeup and department stores worldwide. *Source: Wikipedia

Fragrances -GUERLAIN -Coriolan [DISCONTINUED]

foto

Notes from Fragrantica: lemon leafs, bergamot, neroli and petit grain, ginger, nutmeg, ylang-ylang and gorse; patchouli, benzoin and leather.

This is such a classic, classy men's scent. I'm sad it's discontinued and so underrated. Smooth leather, oakmoss, a touch of nutmeg and benzoin for just a hint of sweetness and a nice vetiver that is not harsh or too strong (sometimes vetiver can be just TOO much, but here it's quite nice). I do get a bit of coriander and sage, but again, not overbearing. This one does have good projection the first couple of hours, and last's for many hours after but sits close to the skin. Expertly blended, very unisex if you're open to a bit more masculinity in your fragrances, and a nice throwback to times when oakmoss was really used to full advantage.



Fragrances -GUERLAIN -L'Homme Ideal

foto

This review is for the EDT launched in 2014. The nose behind this fragrance is Thierry Wasser. Notes from Fragrantica: Top notes are citruses, rosemary, orange blossom and bitter orange; middle notes are almond and tonka bean; base notes are leather, cedar and vetiver.

If it weren't for the vetiver and rosemary I would classify this one as very close to a yummy gourmand, thanks to the almond and tonka playing warm and powdery on the skin. The suede/leather adds a smoothness to it without being overly leathery (not that that's a bad thing, but some don't like to smell leathery). The rosemary and vetiver do play up the woody aromatic vibe and blend well with the cedar base. I do get some citrus and orange blossom in the opening, it makes for a nice clean beginning, but not at all bracing or too strong/masculine. I have not been disappointed by any of the L'Homme Ideal scents, this is definitely worth owning.

Concealers -GUERLAIN -Precious Light Rejuvenating Illuminator

Out of all the similar illuminating pens I have tried, this one is by far the best. I think it is much better than Touche Eclat and here is why: it has more coverage and visually "lifts" darker areas like no other.

I personally use this under my eyes; once I am done with corrector/concealer, I still have a few dark/deep areas like right underneath inner corner of my eye or outer corner - a small amount of this product and suddenly I look awake and for a lack of a better word "fresh". Almost as if I had no under eye darkness to begin with.

You can use it through the center of the face to highlight it; this formula does not have shimmer, it is not a glowy product - however - it manages to reflect the light in such an effortless way, I absolutely love it.

For those of you interested in this and other Guerlain bestsellers, I have a separate in-depth review with swatches here (https://www.partyparrotblog.com/single-post/2018/10/13/Guerlain-190th-Anniversary-Makeup-Collection-Review). Hope it helps!


Lipstick -GUERLAIN -Rouge G Jewel

My very first tube of this lipstick must be 8 years old now; I no longer use it - but this lipstick is one of those rare items, that you just can't get rid of!

I love this 19th century packaging; the double-mirror is absolutely chic and I feel so important every time I take this one out of my clutch. I like the fact that now you can customize cases, there are so many wonderful designs to choose from. I have also always loved this formula: it is creamy, hydrating and smooth. Makes my lips feel and look great. I enjoy the lilac-vanilla scent too. All in all, have no complaints whatsoever and would certainly recommend this as a gift for a friend, who is into makeup or a gift for yourself (because you deserve to treat yourself!).

At the moment I am using shade Metallic Nude from their 190th Anniversary collection; it is a nice opalescent pinkish nude that goes with every look. For those of you interested in this and other Guerlain bestsellers, I have a separate in-depth review with swatches here (https://www.partyparrotblog.com/single-post/2018/10/13/Guerlain-190th-Anniversary-Makeup-Collection-Review).

Fragrances -GUERLAIN -Shalimar

Shalimar is one of a kind and she is BEAUTIFUL. But you know that ... unless you tried the EDP and got the burned rubber note that starts ( I am pretty sure it is the initial entrance of the “leather “ note ) and will DISAPPEAR if you are patient . Yes, it is very bad for a brief few seconds . I find it dissipates and the other notes prevail to perfection. Others may have a different experience, but I do not regret buying the EDP .

If you want to wear Shalimar and enjoy a soft version without the leather or irritating note of the EDP ( that vanishes when I wear it ) you can purchase the EDT . It is a little more tame, but a very lovely oriental that will set you apart from all those girls basking in candied marshmallow and praline scents that are on every perfume counter competing for the highest sugar content with slinky celebrities .

Personally I love Shalimar in all versions and own three EDT, EDP, and Eau De Shalimar , a recent flanker. Eau De Shalimar is captivating ( I bought the EDP in that one ) and makes my heart melt . It is soft, has a lemon or slight citrus background and is much more mellow. However, I clearly smell the basic DNA of Shalimar in this ethereal beauty .

If you have ever been disappointed in Shalimar , try the other versions . When I wear any form of Shalimar I am thankful such a classic was formulated and has endured for me to enjoy .
