GUERLAIN have been producing pioneering fragrances since 1828 – and with over 1,100 created so far, the Legendary fragrance collection has been curated to highlight their most beloved and most innovative perfumes. Named after the iconic street where the GUERLAIN flagship store resides, GUERLAIN Champs-Elysees Eau de Parfum is a fruity-musky floral that – for the first time in fragrance history – highlights the true beauty of the flowering mimosa tree.
This Fragrance Smells Like…
Champs-Elysees Eau de Parfum settles into waves of softness, combining fresh florals, juicy fruits and carnal accents. Tart yet sweet blackcurrants are nuanced by romantic rose petals while the burst of hibiscus is softened by the nostalgic nuttiness of the almond tree blossom. There is an underlying coolness that works to maintain the bright fresh feel of the fragrance whilst a powdery floral tone rises throughout the scent. The star of the show is the mimosa flower, providing an abundance of honeyed-warmth that is enticing and delicately balanced against the cool freshness and softness of the woody base.
What’s The Story Behind This Scent?
GUERLAIN’s origins reside in France, so their flagship store, 68, Avenue des Champs-Elysées, is honoured in this fragrance as the City of Light is celebrated more widely. The gentle movement between the different notes with the overarching mimosa celebration symbolises the prestige and reach of a city in constant motion.
You Will Love This If…
Fresh mimosa’s scent of powdery florals and honeyed warmth makes for a very comforting combination, making Champs-Elysees perfect for someone who loves fresh florals with a twist.
This Perfume Smells Similar To:
Champs-Elysees also comes in an Eau de Toilette version, which smells similar to the Eau de Parfum with mimosa at the core. The Eau de Toilette is lighter, with a more prominent rose scent alongside the sweet mimosa, there is also less of a rich musky base unlike in the Eau de Parfum which has a more sensual side.
Is Champs-Elysees Unisex?
We believe that any fragrance can be enjoyed by anyone – but in terms of traditional perfume preferences, Champs-Elysees is a hyper-feminine explosion of sweet florals.
What’s The Longevity Like?
Champs-Elysees Eau de Parfum is remarkably long-lasting, leaving a trail of fragrance on your skin and clothing to last the entire day.
What’s Special About The Bottle?
GUERLAIN are renowned for their iconic glass bottles, including the ‘inverted heart’ flacon designed by Raymond Guerlain. Underscored with graceful scrolls typical of Art Nouveau, the avant-garde stopper adopts the form of a hollowed heart, evoking the delicate romanticism of the perfume and epitomising the technical craftsmanship of GUERLAIN designers.
