Fragrance File: Mon Guerlain

Guerlain, the French beauty brand est in 1828, is a brand synonymous with luxury and it’s latest fragrance is an exquisite nod to the finer things in life…. women!

Mon Guerlain is the house’s new fragrance and it is a tribute to today’s femininity – strong, free and sensual.

This gorgeous fresh oriental scent contains notes of fresh Lavender Carla (an exceptional variety of lavender with unique properties cultivated in Provence), voluptuous Sambac jasmine (gathered at sunrise in India), Album Sandalwood to express inner riches and mystery and sensual Vanilla Tahitensis from Papua New Guinea – a favorite raw material inseparable from any Guerlain masterpiece and also present in Shalimar, Habit Rouge and Jicky.

Mon Guerlain is presented in one of the most iconic bottles from Guerlain that showcases the strength of taut lines and the sensuality of curves – evoking sensual feminity.

Angelina Jolie was chosen as the face of the new perfume from the house of Guerlain. The inspiration behind the beautiful “Notes of a Woman” mini-movie starring this iconic woman was “the choices, emotions and dreams that embody modern femininity.”

 

“We create perfumes for the women we admire” Jacques Guerlain, creator of mythical fragrances such as Shalimar, L’Heure Bleue and Mitsouko.

 

Mon Guerlain was created by Thierry Wasser, Guerlain’s Master Perfumer, with Delphine Jelk.

The partnership between Angelina and Guerlain has its roots in Angelina’s childhood memory of her own French mother’s love of a Guerlain powder. Angelina has donated her entire salary from the Guerlain campaign to charity.

I love the warm, sensual notes of this gorgeously feminine scent. It has an air of mystery about it that makes you want to find out more about the wearer. The perfect scent for a first date!
