Description

Mon Guerlain, the House's new fragrance, is a tribute to today’s femininity - a strong, free and sensual femininity, as inspired by Angelina Jolie: My invisible tattoo, my fragrance, Mon Guerlain.
The fresh oriental fragrance enhances exceptional raw materials: Carla Lavender from Provence, Sambac Jasmine from India, Album Sandalwood from Australia and Vanilla Tahitensis from Papua New Guinea. Mon Guerlain expresses the quintessence of a story replete with experiences, nourished by success, expertise and generosity, all infused with the same passion since 1828 by the Guerlain perfumer.
Your fragrance Mon Guerlain in its “quadrilobe” bottle : created in 1908, the bottle established itself as one of Guerlain’s iconic bottles. Simple and graphic, it echoes an alchemist’s bottle and owes its name to its stopper, which is crafted from one piece to obtain a shape resembling four lobes. A century later, beautifully enhanced by a luxurious glass weight and a golden adornment, this bottle offers a contrast between strong taut lines and sensual curves, expressing contemporary femininity.

Summary
I have had a chance to try Mon Guerlain EDP several times - it has gotten quite a promotion with the Angelina Jolie ad. However, this scent has appeared not the one I would associate her with.
The fragrance opens up with pleasant notes of bergamot, lavender and jasmine. They linger for 2 hours tops. After that the vanilla strikes back and it indeed strikes hard. Due to the excellent longevity that notorious vanilla stays for days clinging to the clothes that have been unfortunately in the way of application (the cuffs of my jacket still emanate Mon Guerlain vanilla after a fortnight...). For me that was the most frustrating thing about that EDP.
In defense of the EDP I would say that it may be worn at the evening event for several hours till it is somehow different from a number of other powdery and vanill-ish perfumes of other brands. Unfortunately, the price will probably steer a lot of people clear of that idea in favour of a cheaper vanilla-saturated perfume. The best seasons for it are winter and autumn, it is too heavy for the summer and daytime as well.

Although this fragrance is very pleasant, I am not sure it is much different to others on the market. There was nothing remarkable about it really.

I would be happy to wear this but I am not sure I would be happy to pay the full rrp. Mine was a ice sample and that is probably going to be the extent of my relationship with this scent.

User Reviews

Strongest points
Pretty yet simple bottle
Scent lasts a decent length of time
Feminine scent
Lime and lavender hits me initially but the dry down is warm and vanilla with that hint of sandlawood
Weakest points
A bit generic - similar to a number of other perfumes around these days
Summary
A nice refreshing scent that lasts okay for an EDP but is nothing special considering the price
