Fragrances - GUERLAIN - L'Heure Bleue

Back in the halcyon era of MUA swapping, I received a vintage sample of this perfume. Sadly, I was much too young to appreciate such a mature fragrance. I don't think many women under the age of 35 will be drawn to this. Cut to today - I'm 35, 90% of my wardrobe is vintage, I routinely wear lipstick and pin curl my hair. Simply put, I wanted to experiment with fragrances to match my …Read more

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Gourmand Coquin

Guerlain really stretched itself on some of its newer compositions in the last few years such as Gourmand Coquin. This fragrance has received so many enthusiastic reviews despite the fact that it is not easily recognisable as a Guerlain that I simply could not ignore it. I admit I had some trepidation in purchasing GC because it is undeniably a gourmand, and I am not a gourmand lover per se. I do …Read more

2014 batch code, so it has the oakmoss back into it (from 2013) to restore its vintage soul. At first spray the jumble of notes shocks me, but given time to warm up its lovely. At first I get the smell of a mechanics garage, petrol mixed with metal filings and dust, green notes, freshly squeezed limes, and old nuts. After 20 minutes it morphs into lovely fresh baked cinnamon biscuits, leather …Read more

Almost the best product I've ever used to diminish signs from yester-late-night. Before sleeping, I'd slather on my usual skincare - lotion, eye cream, essence - without the moisturizer. Then I'd squeeze a tiny amount (about 1/2 the size of a fingernail) and massage this into my skin with my warm hands. It usually takes more or less 30 seconds to get absorbed into my skin. The …Read more

This is a unique offering from Guerlain. I prefer this over the EDT version. This came out after, and it is more intimate and smoother than it's sister. The notes are similar, but this has a irreverence to it. It is unapologetic. This is my favorite of current Guerlain offerings (I am not a fan of Le Petite Robe Noire and its flankers). Even though this is softer than the EDT, it is still a …Read more

This is a very unique scent! It is quite different from other Guerlain feminine scents. In my opinion, out of the contemporary scents Guerlain has to offer, it is the best. I do prefer the EDP in this, but the EDT is very nice too. This is a violet overload scent. As well there is raspeberry which has the scent of "hair spray" (not a bad thing. The heart also has violet, rose, and …Read more

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Vetiver Extreme [DISCONTINUED]

I am a huge fan of Guerlain's fragrances. They are well blended and classic. At least the older scents are (not a fan of the newer ones like L'Homme Ideal, Le Petite Robe Noire, etc). This is a very green vetiver. However, there is nothing "extreme" about this scent. It is lovely, but lasts about two hours on my skin. It is still a wonderful scent overall. I wish it was longer …Read more

This foundation has a lovely finish! It looks natural but also somehow "finished" I guess because it covers nicely. I am very picky about foundations and this is a winner. It goes on very smoothly but dries darker on application so it's worth getting a sample (Sephora has it). My main concern with foundations is that the color is perfect for me and the finish doesn't look …Read more

Similar to Cherry Blossom but with more fresh green notes and less powder. This is a nice one if you like spring lilacs, it smells like the real thing. Or plum or vanilla orchid type fragrances.

Things I smell from this fragrance are sharp citrus and fresh green aldehydes, plum, sweet cherry almond pie, lots of lilac, vanilla orchid, creamy fresh baby powder, shampoo like florals and a …

I have had for ages but rarely use it. Everytime that I do my skin itches and I get breakouts. I always apply on clean skin and remove properly - I have used 3 different Guerlain foundations and all of them cause breakouts for me. They are v fragranced. (Incidentally Chanel and Dior wreck my skin too.) This one, even when set with a Lancome powder, did not last half a day. It either becomes …Read more
