NOCH a comment on Mon Guerlain...
Okay, I think it's time, I have to add my mustard. Mon Guerlain is a fragrance that has occupied me for several months and the more comments I read about this fragrance, the more I feel the need to describe my experiences I love the Guerlain classics and, before I knew Parfumo, I came through my (fragrance) life wonderfully alone with them. That's why I was very interested in this new release and went to a perfumery for a test spraying session. My first impression: sweet sweet sweet, just creepy qietschsüß. The second impression: a slightly artificial note with strong jasmine, still sweet, slowly fading over hours. Nix bergamot, nix lavender, I only discovered it in the fragrance pyramid. So far so bad, Mon Guerlain I had ticked off first.
Still, I caught myself sniffing around for hours. That combined with the fact that it is a guerlain (yes, I admit it...) led to the fact that the scent somehow did not go out of my mind. What does a freshly baked Parfuma do in such a dilemma - of course, fast times ´ne bottling ordered. Said - done, sniffed again. The smell impression the same - simply unwearably sweet! In between also tried the floral, but there the Jasmine kills me.
But at the same time I noticed with MG that the scent triggers something in me that I can't get enough of, something totally homey, secure, comforting - simply wonderful. Since then Mon Guerlain has had addictive character for me and the 100ml bottle moved in!
Meanwhile I could also identify bergamot and lavender and I find the fragrance simply ingenious. But in a completely different way than the classic Guerlains or the newer ones like Insolence or L´Instant de Guerlain. All these are much more individual and unique and more surprising in their fragrance. With Mitsouko, for example, one does not suspect at the beginning with the best will in the world what comes out in the end. MG is clearly more unspectacular: as soon as bergamot and lavender have vanished, a gentle transition to the heart note takes place, which lasts for hours to finally fade away just as gently in the vanilla base note. The war´s No big surprises. Also the fragrance pyramid does not promise anything earth-shattering. Nevertheless, the fragrance is ingenious because it implements both the simple structure and the gourmand trend perfectly and stylishly. That's exactly why he's a real guerrilla to me. Yes, new and fashionable or both at the same time, but in its implementation simply Guerlain.
I have also tested some other gourmands so far and found them all disgustingly sticky, sweet, artificial, too much of this, too much of that, somehow always horrible! The only one of this direction (which I have tested) that can beat MG is Mon Exclusif, as it smells even more natural. Well, Guerlain too, what should I do...
To be fair, however, for all MG critics my husband should be quoted again after this praise, who commented MG as follows: "How nice it was when you were still wearing Guerlain..."

My Heart
There is one comment about this fragrance that is particularly close to my heart:

Before my passion for perfumes began, I only tried fragrances when the bottles captivated me. So Mon Guerlain wouldn't have attracted me then, the bottle is just too inconspicuous (-only now, of course, I realize that it highlights the classic, straightforward and elegant facets of this fragrance). And certainly I didn't think I'd like lavender in a perfume, or even find it sensual.... But it came to pass that I got a sample of it, and then I got to smell this fragrance for the first time.... even then I liked it very much, but as a teenager it was just too expensive for me, I didn't take it seriously yet.

However, also never forget. Long time later, I found the empty plastic box again and tried to come still the last droplet of sweet nectar of Mon Guerlain. A last remnant of fine mist reached my nose and I found it again really very good.

Again, at least a year later, I am a member of Parfumo and my perfume love reaches a new level. I still have Von Guerlain in the back of my mind, type it in and see those top reviews. It was immediately clear to me, I absolutely have to try this one! When the first perfumeries opened again here, I was right there on the first day, for my Guerlain test. And no sooner was he (forbidden) on my wrist, I remembered him again:

This fragrance! You beautiful, sensual fragrance! Spicy but not heavy, sweet but not sticky, sexy, classy, elegant, grown up without being bitchy or distant. No, you are so close and whispering with a smile, "Come to me, I give you my love in the form of a hug!" I've never associated a scent with the feeling of love like that before.

You can imagine, I was still hanging on to the sweater with my nose where Mon Guerlain had manifested itself for days after the test! From that moment, it was clear I was ready. Finally, my Guerlain will be mine. Mon Amour! And I want to be as good a person in my heart as my perfume smells.

Thank you for reading! :)

Wedding Perfume
The brain stores scents, as is well known, and for this reason I had consciously decided on a new perfume for my upcoming wedding.
After all, years later, when I smelled the fragrance, I wanted to bring back memories of the big day.

By chance I discovered Mon Guerlain and the decision was made.
My fiancé gave me the fragrance a short time later for my birthday, there were still four months to go before the wedding.

During this time I started wearing Mon Guerlain occasionally in rehearsal. It simply fitted perfectly into the overall picture of a romantic-rustic October wedding. To the cream-coloured vintage wedding dress.
To lilies Casablanca.
And as my very close companion, Mon Guerlain; the perfect autumn scent par excellence
The fragrance is classically elegant without being stuffy. Sexy and sensual without being sinful. Attractive, yet innocent. Restrained, yet present. Striking, without screaming "here I am!"
In my opinion, the ideal image of a bride. She doesn't need to be noticed, since the day belongs to her anyway and she is the center of attention.

A fragrance without corners and edges, a so-called crowd pleaser, yet it stands out from the crowd.
Mainstream? Nothing. Yes, it's sweet, but not sticky. It's spicy sweet. Even slightly ethereal and aromatic-fresh, thanks to the bergamot in the prelude.
I perceive a light liquorice note and also coumarin in the background. Iris gives it a special, powdery touch.

With Angelina Jolie as the face of the advertising campaign, Guerlain has hit the bull's eye.
The provocative rebel has become an elegant lady over the years, just as I personally have developed over time. With the years, the maturity and life experience one becomes calmer, more relaxed, calmer.

Mon Guerlain was my tranquilizer in this -clothing- stressful phase of wedding preparations. Whether it was because of the lavender?
Not even the monster-in-law (sorry) who made my life a living hell could upset me. With Mon Guerlain I felt protected and gently wrapped. He helped me to stand above things.
Was I actually wearing Mon Guerlain or did he wear me...?
Unfortunately, it did not have a happy ending: we separated shortly before the wedding. It's been more than a year since then, and I have never used Mon Guerlain again.
The limbic system stores olfactory sensations, linked to intense emotions and people who have accompanied you during this phase.
Maybe it's not about the "happy ending" but about the story itself.

The soft vanilla note, paired with jasmine and sandalwood, enveloped me like a cuddly blanket.
How many times did Mon Guerlain wipe the tears from my cheeks, give me courage and strength, whisper to me: "Everything will be fine." Like a hug, he was my comforter Like a best friend who has stood by you through the hardest times, who knows your weaknesses and imperfections. Even though you present the strong woman on the outside
No, I'm still not over it and whether I can ever wear Mon Guerlain again is in question. Today I had to admit this to myself after a long break and re-testing: Mon Guerlain for me is just melancholy to spray on - Hello Proust-Effect!
I am still mourning my ex and also after the scent, both of them will never again be like and what they once were for me.

Maybe one day I'll fall in love again. Maybe I'll let Mon Guerlain come back into my life. Unfortunately, with fragrances it is almost impossible to cover up the deeply rooted memories and the emotions that go with them.
Damn, why isn't there a reset button for the archive up there?

Time heals all wounds, they say. I am not completely healed yet but one thing is for sure, the power of fragrances should never be underestimated. In the positive as well as unfortunately also in the negative sense.

"Sometimes it's time to close an old book. There's no point in reading the chapters over and over again. "Because they don't change. And there are so many other great books."

And scents...

So long, mon Guerlain, mon Amour!

A superstar
Well over 100 statements and over 30 comments, published in 2017. A fragrance that is very polarized. With 8.0 here very good rated, nevertheless he has here quite his critics.
Of course I also have to write a comment to this masterpiece, because I like it very much. A superstar in the fragrance community for a long time. Among the releases of the last years probably the most recommended fragrance for women. Also on Youtube an often recommended fragrance. It was financially the big litter of Guerlain respectively LVMH. The sales figures are extremely high for a Guerlain. In addition, Angelina Jolie is a very well-known face on board, similar to Johnny Depp with Sauvage.

Of course I became attentive, since this smell was/is recommended very often. I like to give away scents. And to this I can say: Definitely a good choice, because there will be hardly any enemies. Among the niche fans perhaps already, but among the designer fans there shouldn't be too many opponents.
The bottle is very noble and feminine, which fits absolutely to this fragrance. An eye-catcher, not cheap, but worth its money. I already gave it away. Around 100 euros for 100ml, but for a gift for important people definitely worth the money.
The fragrance was created by Thierry Wasser, a great perfumer who has created many great works. This is a sweet-floral scent that comes across as noble. Definitely looks very similar to La vie est belle by Lancome, but is not quite as loud. I also love the LVEB, but in many situations inappropriate. Mon Guerlain is much more elegant. A woman could also wear this to a chic evening dress.
The fragrance doesn't start too heavy. A slight freshness is scented paired with a note of lavender. The lavender is rather modern-sweetish, which I like very much. After a short time the flowery notes are already coming. With Jasmin-Sambac comes a note that I simply love in women's fragrance. I have a weakness for that grade. Here, too, this note fits in well. The flowery heart note is well done and very feminine and sexy. The vanilla is pretty much active throughout and comes to the fore at the end, letting the fragrance fade out gently and sweetly, together with soft wood.
From beginning to end a very feminine and sensual creation. Also well wearable for special occasions, because Mon Guerlain is extremely feminine, but also brings a lot of style and elegance. Such sweet-floral scents I like best to smell on ladies, because they are so feminine, seductive and sexy.
The performance is in good midfield. Shelf life should be 6-7 hours. Enough for the evening. The Sillage is optimal in my opinion. Not too much, but always well perceptible.

Mon Guerlain - a good choice for a high quality gift. A crowdpleaser that will please most men, but also ladies. Always a good choice for dates, too. Treat him to you.

Calming - Spray
Careful dosage is also important for this fragrance. It smells soft, sweet but not sugary, powdery, erotic, feminine and lasts long.
If you spray without thinking, all fragrances simply stink, including this one. If everyone would pay attention to that, a lot of water would not be so hated!
With Mon Guerlain you also have a soul comforter and warming, soothing energy that gently caresses your head.
After stressful times or a stirring argument, where one shuffles sadly through life, the beautiful Guerlain comrade helps as with magic hand. Its finely created aroma interplay makes you happy.

In the vanilla base he (me) reminds easily of Lalique Le Parfum, which shows a similar effect for me.

Supremely similar to Mon Excusif but stronger on the lavender. It is less tenacious than ME and has an airy-er feel. Great bottle and price.
