Guerlain Chant d'Aromes Eau de Toilette Review

GUERLAIN Chant d’Aromes Eau de Toilette is springtime in a bottle! Its symphony of fresh florals and woody notes are utterly charming, resulting in an irresistibly refined fragrance.

Part of the GUERLAIN Legendary fragrance collection and launched in 1965, Chant d’Aromes was Jean-Paul Guerlain’s first feminine fragrance, with each delicate flower in the fragrance signifying its own meaning of love. Even on the coldest, most gloomy days, Chant d’Aromes can add a spring in your step to make you feel lighter and revitalised.


This Fragrance Smells Like…

The top notes of the fragrance are powerful and long-lasting, remaining key components of the overall scent even as the fragrance wears on the skin.The sweet-floral scent of honeysuckle is prominent from the first spritz to hours later, while the accompanying fresh zesty tones of bergamot and mandarin creating a joyful mood. The heart of jasmine works beautifully alongside the honeysuckle to maintain a floral sweetness as it mingles with gardenia and ylang-ylang. Then the scent mellows into an earthy chypre base of sandalwood and notes of the undergrowth, warmed through by a gourmand touch of vanilla – all while remaining light and charming.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

Chant d’Aromes is an ode to the language of flowers and the many meanings of love each one represents – but it’s also created for the young lady who would soon become Jean-Paul Guerlain’s wife. This celebration of love continued through Chant d’Aromes history as a bottle was gifted to all young women at the Debutantes’ Ball throughout the 1960s.


You Will Love This If…

If you love delicate and fresh floral scents, you will love GUERLAIN Chant d’Aromes. The delectable honeysuckle and earthy tones are an outdoor lover’s paradise, allowing you to carry beautiful springtime scents with you wherever you go.


This Perfume Smells Similar To:

Chant d’Aromes is so floral and fresh that it almost feels like a breeze blowing across a sweet meadow; the air has been subtly perfumed by the flowers and leaves it encounters as it passes through a forest drying out in the sunlight, before finally reaching the meadow.


Is Chant d’Aromes Unisex?

Fragrances are genderless, governed solely by personal preference. However, if you are looking to gift Chant d’Aromes, the delicate florals have a traditionally feminine feel but will be adored by anyone who loves a fresh fragrance.


What’s The Longevity Like?

A beautifully light Eau de Toilette, Chant d’Aromes creates a cloud of perfume that maintains a subtle hint of honeysuckle throughout the day. I’d recommend reapplying it after a few hours to increase intensity.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

The delicate just-green colour of the perfume creates a natural feel that’s reflected in the floral-woody chorus within.The glass bottle itself is iconic to GUERLAIN; the ‘inverted heart’ shaped stopper exuded artistic flare and luxury, while honouring the technical prowess of designer, Raymond Guerlain. The heart shape is particularly relevant to Chant d’Aromes as it reflects the love story that inspired the perfume, while the bottle is underscored with graceful scrolls typical of Art Nouveau for a final touch of elegance.
