GUERLAIN Champs-Elysees Eau de Toilette Review

Review of GUERLAIN Champs-Elysees Eau de Toilette

Paying homage to their French roots, GUERLAIN Champs-Elysees Eau de Toilette is a tribute to the flagship GUERLAIN store on 68, Avenue des Champs-Elysées. The luxurious fruity-musky floral is not only the namesake of the iconic store, but it’s also a part of the GUERLAIN Legendary fragrance collection. The iconic line exemplifies GUERLAIN’s impressive fragrance heritage, which spans across almost two centuries in time and continues to push the fragrance world to daring new heights.

Whilst Champs-Elysees is a gentle floral fragrance, it’s still a true innovation: a joyful celebration of the mimosa tree, Champs-Elysees presented the full-bodied beauty of the flower for the first time in perfume history when it was created in 1996.


This Fragrance Smells Like…

Champs-Elysees Eau de Toilette combines a delicate juicy fruity scent with a botanical freshness to sparkle on the skin. Sharp blackcurrant berries are softened by almond tree flowers as sweet, romantic rose intertwines with the honeyed mimosa flower to create delicate floral layers that gently adorn the skin. Accents of musky hibiscus seed and nutty almond tree wood add to the scent, creating the perfect backdrop for mimosa to dazzle the senses.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

A first in the perfume world, Champs-Elysees is a celebration of mimosa and the beauty of its delicate flower. Inspired by the fresh blooms in spring and summer, the image of a flowering mimosa tree can be felt throughout the fragrance as the botanical freshness feels light and airy, like it should be dancing on a breeze.


You Will Love This If…

If you love light and fresh fragrances, the delicate floral bouquet of GUERLAIN Champs-Elysees Eau de Toilette will make your heart flutter. The mimosa feels warm and honeyed, comforting the senses while the other natural scents add a breath of freshness to the perfume.


This Perfume Smells Similar To:

Champs-Elysees also comes in an Eau de Parfum version, which smells similar to the Eau de Toilette as they’re both inspired by the entrancing honeyed-sweet yet alluring freshness of mimosa. The Eau de Parfum has a more present musky-floral combination that has a longer-lasting dry down than the Eau de Toilette.


Is GUERLAIN Champs-Elysees Eau de Toilette Unisex?

To us, fragrance is genderless as anybody can enjoy any fragrance based on its smell alone. Traditionally, floral scents are enjoyed by women and the light sweet freshness of GUERLAIN Champs-Elysees Eau de Toilette means it is targeted towards women.


What’s The Longevity Like?

The beauty of Champs-Elysees is in the way it sparkles as both a warm sweet fragrance and a cool fresh one; this quality lasts on the skin as the mimosa flower blooms throughout the day.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

Delicate lines caress the fruity-floral fragrance of Champs-Elysees as the elegant glass scrolls draw the eye to the iconic ‘inverted heart’ stopper. The rosy pink emblem is perfectly matched to the delicate gold hue of the perfume, accenting the hint of gold that delivers the powerful perfume spray.
