Reviews of Jardins de Bagatelle

Guerlain have changed the packaging of many of their scents and many mens aftershaves. The normal packaging has been changed from the glass square art deco bottle to a rounded shape but the dreadful thing is the scent has been changed and is unrecognisable. Why don't they change the name as I have had to buy two bottles and only when I opened did I find the "smell" has changed and it is not pleaant.

White floral melange floating over a fresh green meadow

This 1983 Guerlain creation has been called by many the perfect white floral and I have to agree. A blast of tuberose and gardenia, followed by a melange of other white florals, finally floating into a balance with a lovely green note, the effect of being both in a garden just after the sun has touched the blossoms and adjacent to a lawn with warm green notes ascending to mix with the florals.

Very feminine, but neither metallic nor sharp to my nose, as some detractors have claimed.

There are, according to Guerlain, 15 ingredients:

Bergamot, Lemon, Neroli

Provence Rose, Jasmine, Gardenia, Tuberose, Magnolia, Narcissus

Patchouli, Cedarwood, Vetiver, Tonka Bean, Benzoin, Musk

This is, to my nose, one of Guerlain's very finest feminine scents.

Pros: Perfect balance of white florals and green notes
Cons: None

A jouful, radiant, multifaceted and uncompromisingly feminine floral scent, mastered by an heady duo gardenia/tuberose rooted over an orangy/musky base with hints of citrus, a touch of rosey soapiness and white musk. Some bergamot, a touch of moss, light neutral cedarwood, soft hints of balsams and patchouli imprint classicism without making heavy the general variant floral softness. The base is basically a well amalgamated floral bouquet over a light vetiver background. I suppose some arcane animalic patterns and may be a well modulated aldehydes usage contribute to root down a stable classic unfolding vibe. A cult fragrance of the past, still loved by many fond of the genre. A great Guerlain.

I personally liked this big loud Tuberose and gardenia blend, but I always got negative feedback when I wore it. Coworkers finally elected a spokesman to tell me not to wear it and my boyfriend at that time told me it smelled like toilet paper. So I had to content myself to drops of it while I was alone, and the bottle lasted so long it went rancid and I had to throw it away.

As a lover of classic florals I still like this one, a golden oldie. Not one I buy often but good to be reminded of of it not and again.

When you look at all the strong and heady tuberoses of the 80's: Panthère (Cartier), Lumière (Rochas), Michelle (Balenciaga), Azzaro 9, and, of course, Poison (Dior), you see that with no doubt, Jardins de Bagatelle is the best of them all: more original, more refined, perfectly feminine. I am never tired of smelling it, and that's the sign of a classic.
