Discover the intoxicating nature of Guerlain Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Florale
A tribute to all things floral can be found in the duty free.
Guerlain is responsible for introducing us to some of the world’s classiest and iconic fragrances - think Shalimar, Mitsouko and Jiki - each one is timeless, unforgettable and oh-so-chic. When the famed fragrance house launched Mon Guerlain in the spring of 2017 - fronted by a newly single Angelina Jolie - they boldly offered up something just as unique but with a welcome shot of modernity. Mon Guerlain surprised Guerlain fans with lively composition of bergamot, lavender, jasmine, vanilla, sandalwood and coumarin.
Now, Mon Guerlain has a flowery sibling. Created by Guerlain’s in-house noses Thierry Wasser and Delphine Jelk, new Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Florale is said to be inspired by Angelina Jolie herself (who generously donated her entire fee from the fragrance campaign to charity). Guerlain say that the fragrance is a tribute to femininity which they describe as, ‘subtle, elusive and desirable….It is said to be fragile, yet in reality it is an incredible force because it’s a source of life, the origin.’
However you define ‘femininity’ there is no denying that this is a beautiful light, and fresh fragrance and it is now in duty free stores everywhere. Wasser and Jelk constructed Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Florale from a veritable bouquet of loveliness. Expect lush Sambac Jasmine, Carla Lavender and peony at its opening. A little later, once the fragrance has had a chance to dry down and warm on your skin, it transforms into something smooth and delicious with sandalwood, vanilla, white musk, iris. This is floral fragrance but unlike any other you’ve ever smelt.
Despite the perfume’s modern essence, the Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Florale bottle is an elegant blast from the past. The “quadrilobé” bottle designed in 1908 by Gabriel Guerlain, son of the House founder, is one of Guerlain’s iconic silhouettes. The bottle has held some of Guerlain’s most signature scents and delighted French royalty, high society and the fashion elite for five centuries. Proof, if it was ever needed, that classics are the best.
