Joyful, radiant and just that little bit sparkly, GUERLAIN Mon Guerlain Sparkling Bouquet is like a beaming smile in a bottle. It joins the iconic Mon Guerlain family for 2021, adding a sweet, charming and glowy personality to the existing lineup. Read on to discover the scent for yourself…
This Fragrance Smells Like…
Mon Guerlain Sparkling Bouquet is a playful, radiant fragrance that revisits GUERLAIN’s signature lavender-vanilla duo with a fresh pair of eyes – and yes, you’ll get a shot of those classic sambac jasmine and sandalwood facets too. But the perfume uplifts and transforms each signature note by adding a crisp, juicy pear note for a light, airy feel.
Master perfumers, Thierry Wasser and Delphine Jelk’s captivating fruity-fresh oriental perfume open with a light pear accord that’s sure to put a smile on your face as it blends with the bright, sunny facets of mandarin and bergamot. The top melts into a contrasting floral heart, where the freshness of lavender compliments jasmine’s sun-kissed accents, while pretty peony petals are scattered throughout. But then, vanilla takes to the stage: nestled in sandalwood’s creamy woody notes and snuggled in between sensual white musks, it’s the powerhouse behind the perfume’s oriental fragrance trail.
What’s The Story Behind This Scent?
Mon Guerlain is a perfumed manifesto of femininity. Inspired by – and made for – the modern woman who is strong, free and sensual, the iconic fragrance line is embodied by Angelina Jolie.
The Sparkling Bouquet addition to the Mon Guerlain collection continues to explore the multiple facets of femininity with a stunning ode to positivity. It’s the aura of a radiant woman whose smile makes the world sparkle.
You Will Love This If…
If you’re a loyal GUERLAIN Mon Guerlain fan, it’s safe to say that you’re going to want to try this version. It features lots of the existing, fan-favourite notes that Mon Guerlain enthusiasts would expect from the line, but it injects a slightly lighter, crisper and more playful feel thanks to just-ripe pear.
This Perfume Smells Similar To:
Sparkling Bouquet is very similar to the original Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum; you’ll get all the same lavender, bergamot, jasmine sambac and Rose, vanilla and sandalwood facets in this edition, but – as the name suggests – the 2021 Sparkling Bouquet flanker is a little glitzier, sparklier and more effervescent.
Is Mon Guerlain Sparkling Bouquet Unisex?
To us here at Escentual, fragrance has no gender; as long as you enjoy wearing it, that’s all that matters! That being said, if you do prefer to opt for fragrances that are marketed as fragrances for women, then you won’t be disappointed with Mon Guerlain Sparkling Bouquet; it does have a traditionally feminine feel to it, thanks to its sugary-sweet tone.
What’s The Longevity Like?
Although this GUERLAIN fragrance feels quite light and airy in its essence, it’s still incredibly long-lasting! It lasted about five to six hours on my skin, which I was really impressed with.
What’s Special About The Bottle?
Presented in an iconically classic “quadrilobe” bottle, the Mon Guerlain flacon offers a contrast between the strength of the taut lines and the sensuality of the curves; this ties in perfectly to the concept of celebrating the multiple facets of femininity. The weighted glass bottle is beautifully enhanced by the shimmering silver ring that adorns the neck, which has been reinvented with a quadrilobe pave, crystal-like setting – it’s just like a precious jewel!
