Guerlain Paris

The very best!

I was reading online yesterday and I read that Guerlain was voted as the best Perfume House of 2012 and that Shalimar was voted the best perfume of all time. I can't argue with that at all. I have no less than 50 bottles of Shalimar perfume. This last year I have become obsessed with Vol de Nuit. That is amazing perfume! I wear it everyday. And L'Heure Bleu has baffled me for years. I have many, many bottles of L'Heure Bleu and everyone of them smell different from the next. That is frustrating. But Mitsouko is mind blowingly good. That is my latest obsession.

And I thought only the older bottles were the ones to buy, but I bought a newer 1 oz bottle of parfum this week and it is just as good as the vintage ones. I am wearing a newer Mitsouko on my left shoulder and a 1962 version on my right shoulder and I can smell the difference between the two, but neither is clear cut better than the other. The 60s version, has more of a musky, old rose smell, but I don't smell an absence of anything from one version to another. The synthetic Oakmoss used today is just as good as the Oakmoss used 50 years ago. In fact, that just might be the difference right there. Old Oakmoss has a musky old building smell to it. Not necessarily something I want to smell like all day. I am not saying I wouldn't wear vintage Mitsouko. But when you smell the two next to each other, I think you would see what I mean that each is just as good as the other.

Dear Deb,

Thank you SO MUCH for the wonderful perfume which arrived safe and sound today! It smells incredible and I am utterly delighted with this purchase and the speed and safety with which you sent it.

Guerlain Vol de Nuit

Hi Deb!

I have received my package today and I am extremely happy with it!! Haven't tried them all, just the Vol the Nuit for now. I want to savor every moment!! It smells so different from the current version, it's even more unique and mysterious! It puts me the greatest of moods!

Thank you so much for everything!

Guerlain

L'Heure Bleue

I thought I would share this photo. Vintage spray perfumes are avoided by most people, who gravitate towards parfums only. Guerlain L'Heure Bleue is the exception. The vintage sprays are awesome! Here are the ones to look for.

These are sprays. The sprays are my favorites, they smell awesome. From left to right these are 1950s 1.5 EDT still sealed with the plastic tab. It is a screw top and I unscrewed it to verify the fragrance. It is perfect. Next is a 2.5 oz Cologne from the 1970s. I have used this one and have really enjoyed it, but it is still 85% full. Next is a 1.5 oz Cologne from the 1960s, completely full and sealed and perfect, with the box, which still has the cellophane on it. Next is a 1980s 3.1 oz EDT with the box. This is the reformulated version. Very different but a good version. I have used this one as well and it is half full. The last one on the right is a 1970s 2.5 oz Cologne, also still sealed with the plastic tab. I opened it and verified the scent is perfect, and before the reformulation.
