GUERLAIN Idylle Eau de Parfum Review

Review of GUERLAIN Idylle Eau de Parfum

Showcasing almost two centuries of perfume expertise, GUERLAIN’s Legendary fragrance collection celebrates the incredible heritage of the brand. With a romantic story behind its creation, GUERLAIN Idylle Eau de Parfum has achieved the legendary status as a delectable slightly fruity chypre-floral. Read on to find out all about this timeless perfume…


This Fragrance Smells Like…

Idylle bursts out of the bottle as a fresh and lively scent, showering you in a floral bouquet of lily of the valley, peony, freesia and white lilac. The evocative heart of jasmine and romantic rose reveals an unexpected fruity undertone as, unusually, the jasmine remains a more subtle background scent. The earthy warmth of patchouli and white musks rises from the base to create a platform for the florals to sing from as they remain the stars of the scent.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

You can feel the love and adoration that went into the creation of Idylle. Guerlain perfumer, Thierry Wasser, was inspired by a bouquet of flowers – but more specifically, a wedding bouquet from the love story of a lifetime. A perfectionist, Thierry Wasser selected the best Bulgarian roses in the valleys at dawn to ensure the perfect perfume blend.


You Will Love This If…

If you are a fan of delicate florals, you’ll love the joyous scent of GUERLAIN Idylle Eau de Parfum. Each flower feels like it has been worshipped, adding to the delightful chypre-floral perfume, which feels timeless but still wearable and modern.


This Perfume Smells Similar To:

Just like Thierry Wasser envisioned, Idylle has an idyllic resemblance to a fresh bouquet of blissful blossoming flowers.


Is Idylle Unisex?

We believe that anybody can enjoy any fragrance, but the honeyed sweet floral-chypre Idylle is typically a more feminine fragrance.


What’s The Longevity Like?

An overall soft and delicate fragrance, Idylle is surprisingly long-lasting as its initial fresh sweetness morphs into a more sensual, warm scent without obscuring the floral bouquet.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

The ingredients within Idylle have created a striking soft orange-tinted perfume that pairs beautifully with the renowned elegance of the glass flacon. With the iconic GUERLAIN ‘inverted heart’ shaped stopper and Art Nouveau rolling scrolls, everything about the bottle exudes luxury to elevate the timeless scent within.
