“If you love powdery fragrances, you’ll swoon over GUERLAIN Apres L'Ondee Eau de Toilette; it will transport you to the heart of a meadow as it dries out in the sun after a storm.” - Hannah, Escentual Beauty Team.

 

Why You’ll Love GUERLAIN Apres L’Ondee:

  • Powdery-floral fragrance with a subtle, timeless feel.
  • Fresh and delicate Eau de Toilette.
  • Part of the GUERLAIN Legendary fragrance collection.
  • Presented in the iconic GUERLAIN ‘inverted heart’ flacon.

 

What Does Apres L’Ondee Smell Like?

Created by Jacques Guerlain in 1906, Apres L’Ondee conjures up the image of walking through a dewy meadow on a rainy day as the sun starts to break through. A true celebration of iris and violet, Apres L'Ondee Eau de Toilette has an undeniable powdery tone, but there’s also a subtle hint of spice that lingers in the background, thanks to the note of anise (also known as aniseed). Finally, the fragrance is gently warmed through with a soft and sensual touch of vanilla.

Top notes are Anise, Cassia. Heart notes are Carnation, Violet. Base notes are Iris, Vanilla.

 

Why It’s Escentual:

The story behind Apres L’Ondee really makes this classic powdery perfume come to life. Translating from the French to mean ‘after the rain’, the fragrance is an ode to fresh dewy flowers that are flooded with light as the sun breaks through the clouds after a storm - it really does smell like rain in a meadow as you breathe it in.

Many GUERLAIN fragrances have strong correlations to works of art and, if it were a painting, Apres L’Ondee would be a watercolour that features a swirl of subtle pastel colours. It really is a masterpiece.

 

The Best Way To Use It:

Spritz onto your pulse points, focusing on the neck and wrists. For maximum scent longevity, apply after showering and moisturising the skin.

 

The Sustainable Side:

The outer presentation box is made using responsibly sourced materials.

GUERLAIN Apres L'Ondee Eau de Toilette Spray 75ml is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Guerlain Apres L'Ondee I received the perfume very promptly and in perfect condition. Many thanks. However the eau de toilette is rather weak. I have already used half the bottle and I wish that Guerlain would produce an eau de parfume.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous violet This scent is a gorgeous, classic violet that conjures up the smell of little purple violets, wet from a summer downpour in a garden. The longevity and sillage are good for an EDT and the bottle is absolutely gorgeous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Apres L'Ondee This perfume is a great favourite as it really does remind me of the wonderful scents of spring blossoms, woods and flowers in the sun just after a shower of rain. It's an original, it's rare, and it turns heads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Apres L'Ondee: A Memory That Forgets All This small, modest bottle might be overlooked on a shelf or behind a glass screen; one can imagine it collecting dust alone in an attic, with nothing but memories and the enveloping shadows as its company. It is the quintessential essence of something on the edge of thought, a scent that does not demand respect, but earns it. Even the subtle title this fragrance has afforded seems too transparent in the face of the calm child under its wing; after the rain. Yet, there are no meadows in this bottle, there are no sweet reprises; this liquid is a humourless concoction that dispels one from the moment. Its sheer sincerity is at once overwhelming and underwhelming. This is a fragrance that swallows the wearer in its murky folds and teases them with notes of a decaying memory. This is no mere smell once rains have dispersed; this is the nostalgia of what one once did after those rains and no longer does. This is the photo of a friend, a child's painting, left in an attic without a window. The first spray is an intoxication, a current of ancient flowers, oh, violets singing sweetest in that chorus, roses their brief accompaniment and aniseed their quickly stumbling leader, but this first intoxication, this embroiling saturation of colour quickly drains to a pale greyscale, with humble hues littering the way as though afterthoughts. Even as one catches the almost sickly-quiet notes throughout the day, one is returned to that sense of intoxication, that drowning embrace of tender orange-blossoms as a ghost to the feast. Be under no disillusions, this perfume is not an afternoon following the sweetest of rains, there is no hand-holding or rolling through dew once the original indulgence has imploded; this is the scent of a memory. It is a painful, persistent reminder of what once was, and by the end of its cascade the bottle's contents may as well be a siphon of tears. Even as the last notes fade away, each subtle taste brings one back to that moment, that peppery splash of spray on skin, and each taste of that sweet decay is a reminder of the secret that lingers on the skin, of the romance with that delicate scent that has grown weaker but no less loved, and each reminder possesses a subtle potency and longing that only grows stronger in its frailty; this is not a delightful day following the deluge, this is not the walk through a citrus wood, with laughter a never fleeing guest - it is the memory of that day. There is a second spray. And a third. A fourth. Fifth. Sixth. Seventh. By now perhaps the week is over, or perhaps the seduction of that moment, that nectarous, timeless melancholy, that memory which sears the soul, is too drawing, or too dangerous. One might use this perfume sparingly or one might find themselves too weak to resist remembering that secret that hugs the skin, that never truly leaves even when longest forgotten. It is a sophisticated fragrance that, ultimately, will become so entwined with one's core that the sensual bouquet might prove a lifelong, entirely personal, secret, romance. As the bottle rests, seemingly alone, in the attic, without window or reprieve, we as dust might be lucky enough to fall around it.
