It’s a public holiday here, so here’s a bite-sized beauty hors d’oeuvres for you to snack on! I received a little while ago, the new Guerlain Mon Guerlain Florale perfume. Perfumes are so hard to talk about in depth, for someone who isn’t that clever with her nose, so a bite-sized post fits the bill perfectly!
Guerlain launched their Angelia Jolie inspired and fronted Mon Guerlain perfume last year, but I haven’t smelled it. Mon Guerlain Florale is the lighter, more floral version of the original. What I’d say is this – if you like floral perfumes, then you may enjoy this one. I personally do not, so this isn’t one I’d pick for myself.
However, I must say that I do like the bottle. It is a beautiful hefty piece with rose gold accents that is very trendy right now. This, coupled with the transparent pink liquid perfume within makes for a pretty picture 🙂
The new notes added are peony and Sambac jasmine. For me, the opening note is that of a slightly musky lavender, which then rounds off to something a little sweeter, and markedly floral in flavour. I don’t take to floral fragrances very well, and this one is very very floral. Very feminine and very sweet.
I do find that it is very safe and a little unoriginal. Mon Guerlain Florale is a floral perfume, and isn’t very distinctive to my nose. It didn’t leave much of an impression on me, which is a pity, because for me, fragrances often trigger a memory or emotion in me. This unfortunately did not.
All that said however, fragrance is also a very personal thing. What I enjoy may not sit well with someone else, and vice versa. I think what Guerlain made in Mon Guerlain Florale was a very crowd-pleasing scent that will sit well with those who love floral scents.
Have you smelled Mon Guerlain or this new Mon Guerlain Florale?
Are they scents that sit well with you, or do you like floral scents in general? 🙂 Note: This is being rehomed with Irene 🙂
