I don't understand the bad reviews for this exquisite fragrance, but I conclude it just underlines how much perfume is about individual taste.

Metalys strikes me as an intellectual hiding behind a blonde bombshell persona. First there is that genuinely strange metallic opening - wholly unexpected and actually quite avant garde for a Guerlain compostion. This is quickly followed …

Finally got my hands on an ORIGINAL bottle of METALLICA! I was so excited to try this and to have something so coveted (gee im pathetic...) Anyway, I sprayed it and got a mildly spicy carnation, I also detected some rose (not really a a fan) and orange blossom in the opening hour or so. The middle softened the carnation alot, and the powdery vanilla came through still laced with spices and the …Read more

Yet another screaming stinker from Jean Paul Guerlain. Yes, I've decided that it is he who is ruining the things I love about all Guerlain fragrances....which are subtlety, refinement, complexity, sophistication and uniqueness. Jean Paul's fragrances for women do not posess these qualities. He has created some fabulous classics for MEN...think Vetiver and the different but wonderful …Read more

Metalys is very well blended and therefore must be sniffed -and sniffed again- in order to distinguish the notes from one another. This is a rich, deep, sweet, and spicy vanilla concoction that while well done does not blow my socks off. I do love a vanilla that doesn't smell like cup cakes, but this doesn't stand out and yell "PICK ME! PICK ME!" The spicy carnations and …Read more

At last, thanks to a swap with mundy, I got to sample this one. Like other "big" Guerlains (Vol de Nuit, L'Heure Bleu, Jicky, Mitsouko, etc.), Metallica is a surprising composition that's so well blended that I get more of a unique one-note, never been tried before, impression of a scent rather than a floral/green/spicy/whatever composition of notes from it. Or maybe …Read more

I bought a bottle of this in 2000- just before Guerlain took these off the shelves after Metallica the band sued them. I forgot I had this, until the other day I found it still boxed, hidden in my case. After all these years the scent has not morphed- a beautiful carnation follows the metallic opening- then some warm vanilla (a much more beautiful and contemporary vanilla than in Shalimar. I am …Read more

I am lucky enough to have some of the original Metallic . I am wrapped up in it like a warm blanket. It has taken to my skin like it was made for me. yes it is a floral with a tiny bit of carnation Vanilla & amber & most of all my beloved violet which stays to the end...all in perfect quantities. I say that as most vanilla go all funky and BO on me not this one.Finally I get to …Read more

At last, I have finally gotton around to reviewing this beauty. I was given a sample vial of this a while back and it did nothing for me. Then , a wonderful MUA'er gave me a decant of this and it was then, after spraying it on and really getting in on my skin fully did I fall in love with it. To me, this is one of those scents that not one particular note stands out in. At first, it is a …Read more

Metallica just did not work for me at all. Virtually all I could detect was spice, spice and more spice - oh, and with a little carnation thrown in. I certainly couldn't smell any violets or anything metallic, although there was a certain amount of vanilla. Not feminine enough for me!

Metallica is one of those scents whose discontinuation boggles the mind (IMO Lars Ulrich should have been FLATTERED that his band was lucky enough to share its name with this fragrance), and I am so relieved to hear Guerlain has made the smart decision to reincarnate it under a new monniker, Metalys. Whatever the title (though it might be important to note that this is not No. 25 -- that is …Read more
