Picture a city. The streets are rife with moving cars and waves of people darting to their final destination. In the hustle and bustle of this cosmopolitan chaos there’s a cafe, quaint and quiet with a woman seated inside. This woman appears calm and collected, her designer handbag delicately placed on a seat beside her. Every time someone new enters, the door chimes a bell and she looks up with a hopeful glimmer in her eye. She had not planned to meet anyone, but if fate permits it…
Chic and glamorous, I imagine this woman to be wearing Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire. She has a positive outlook on life and a traditional approach towards romance. She’s is waiting to be swept off her feet and La Petite Robe Noire’s playful top notes of black cherry, bergamot, red berries and almond do just that. She is undeniably graceful and this feminine aura is replicated in the fragrance’s heart of Bulgarian and Turkish rose. But, there’s something more to learn about this chic, sophisticated woman. She may seem to be poised and elegant at all times, but there’s an air of mystery to her demeanour, and it goes hand in hand with La Petite Robe Noire’s base of licorice and black smoked tea.
I’m sure most of us can recall encountering a man that is impeccably groomed and sophisticated. You find yourself falling over his every last word and hypnotised by his devilishly handsome good looks.. He is the ultimate gentleman, and of course, he’s wearing Guerlain L’Homme Ideal.
A fragrance that stops you in your tracks, L’Homme Ideal is the only fragrance worth his time. He’s not about using a side door at a party to remain low-key and under the radar, he wants to make an entrance. L’Homme Ideal’s top notes will ensure he does just that with an energetic burst of grapefruit, pink peppercorn and bergamot starting things off with bang in the top notes. As the party continues, he finds a quiet corner, a moment to himself as he inhales the fresh, signature of almond that’s revealing itself in the heart. As time goes on the dancefloor winds down, so too does his aroma, the dry down stirring sensual notes of vetiver and white musk for an unforgettable final impression.
Turn back time to your childhood. You are wide-eyed and everything is magical as if it is from another world. The memories of your mother applying a red lipstick at her dressing table are at the forefront of your thoughts, her delicate hand making it look easy and effortless. Her smile is contagious, her eyes filled with love, and her voice a comforting hum locked in your memory. She is about to attend an event, jewellery caressing her skin, a new, silk dress hugging her curves and finally a fragrance floating in the air. It’s scent that you’d recall no matter what; it takes you back to that room, your first memory of glamour that you could only dream to one day have too, and it could only ever be, Guerlain Shalimar.
Seductive with an undeniable elegance, Shalimar is a true classic. Worn by women for generations, it is scent that will be remembered by many, not only for its voluptuous aroma but for the beautiful, chic women that it reminds them of. With a creamy softness that merges addictive vanilla with charming notes of iris and balmy opoponax, Shalimar is an intimate moment, created for a woman that are adored.
Behind her fluttering lashes and endearing smile there’s a flash of an audacious attitude. It’s not entirely surprising, her eyes gave the game away, revealing a glimmer of flirtatious charm that whispers ‘there’s more than meets the eye’. We all know a woman like this, she may seem shy but she’s just waiting for the perfect moment. Once her charming personality is uncovered it will never be snuffed out, and you’ll never want it to.
Guerlain Insolence is the scent that marries both sides of her personality, provoking the senses with a scent that is not afraid to surprise. Undeniably feminine, Insolence is a fragrance that will ensure even strangers know what she stands for, blending drops of mouth-watering red fruit with luminous waves of iris and violet. Mesmering at every level, Insolence is an expression of who she is, bold and elegant with a thread of disobedience peering through.
No single place is her home, she embraces life wherever she is and adapts like a flower, adjusting to thrive in its environment. Her skin has been seduced by the sun, and she is glowing. Women like this are few and far between, a spirit that thrives when she’s at one with nature and is always dreaming of its idyllic allure. When she’s at a standstill in between escapes, Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Limon Verde is the only thing that will satisfy her wanderlust.
Exotic and tropical, Aqua Allegoria Limon Verde is a vibrant aroma, sparkling with the memories of her last jaunt. Sharp twists of lime rise in the top notes, unravelling with notes of caipirinha, fig and a tropical green harmony. Finally, just like the memories that leave an imprint on her mind, of the sand and the people she met, so too does the charming base note of tonka bean, giving the fresh citrus aroma a sensual nod.
