GUERLAIN Chamade Eau de Toilette Review

Review of GUERLAIN Chamade Eau de Toilette

Throughout GUERLAIN’s extensive history, fragrance has been taken to thrilling new heights with the creation of the most evocative perfumes. Their incredible heritage – spanning across almost two centuries and five generations of perfumers – is celebrated in the Legendary fragrance collection, where icons like GUERLAIN Chamade Eau de Toilette reside.


This Fragrance Smells Like…

Chamade comes barrelling out of the bottle as its green florals and blackcurrant bud rush to the forefront. Once the fragrance has found its home on your skin, the intense green feeling fades to allow the other delectable notes time to shine. Hyacinth adds a burst of freshness while the iconic Guerlinade blend of jasmine, vanilla and sandalwood creates a delectable rich, intense oriental warmth.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

Released in 1969, the dynamic twists and turns of Chamade were inspired by audacious women with a romantic heart. Daring and seductive like a woman, Chamade also marked the first use of blackcurrant bud in perfumery and the first time GUERLAIN used the multi-faceted green and powdery hyacinth scent.


You Will Love This If…

If you love bold, green fragrances where the florals aren’t overly sweet, you’ll love GUERLAIN Chamade Eau de Toilette. Fans of the classic ‘Guerlinade’ accord will also love the fragrance with the iconic combination of jasmine, vanilla and sandalwood adding a cosy, sensual sweetness.


This Perfume Smells Similar To:

Chamade smells like an exotic floral bouquet, unfurling like the fresh blooms of spring amongst a delicious feast of spice.


Is Chamade Unisex?

We believe that fragrance has no gender and can be enjoyed by anybody based solely on personal preference. The green florals and sweet base makes Chamade a traditionally feminine scent, though it is not as sweet as a lot of other fragrances for women.


What’s The Longevity Like?

Don’t be fooled by the Eau de Toilette concentrate of Chamade; the scent is very long-lasting!


What’s Special About The Bottle?

As well as being master perfumers, GUERLAIN are known for their evocative bottle designs – and Chamade’s iconic ‘inverted heart’, scroll-adorned flacon is no exception. The avant-garde stopper comprises a hollow heart with a touch of gold hidden in the centre, combining delicate romanticism with daring opulence; it’s very fitting for the dynamic Chamade Eau de Toilette.
