SAMSARA Absolutely Deserves 9/10
Samsara is a mystery, a seductive erotic, people will react... You have to know how too wear, and it is greedy it needs to be the dignitary scent, can't mix&much with any other items. If it is your second skin, like mine, you are lucky and your love will be long and sensual.
Yes, the most beautiful fragrance I know..
A combination of sandalwood and jasmine and one of the last "notable" Guerlain, the first to be "marketed" to an ever increasing competitive sales audience.
Guerlain used an overdose of sandalwood, thirty per cent, according to Roja Dove. Turin calls is "sandalwood jasmine" and gives it four stars, despite his admitting it was "so bad" when it premiered, "sweet, complicated and loud" in its attempt to win a niche in the successful oriental market of Opium and Cinnabar. Turin notes the "praline and coconut" effect.
Top notes: Peach, Lemon, Bergamot, Tarragon
Heart notes: Jasmine, Orris, Ylang, Rose, Narcissus, Violet, Carnation
Base notes: Amber, Vanilla, Sandalwood, Coumarin, Musk, Benzoin
My reaction: Harsh floral mothballs, ugly a sin. A true horror. It may have come a century after Guerlain's world-shattering Jicky, but it smells truly awful to my nose.
So, I'm a guy and I bought some of this recently...the current edt formula. I have never received so many compliments when I'm out and about as when I've had this on. At first I was hesitant in purchasing this b/c it's a women's fragrance, but then I figured, what the hell? It smelled really good on me when I sprayed it on at the counter. I chose the eau de toilette b/c of the top note clarity. To me, this is not an office perfume, not even for the ladies. I've only worn this in the evenings and only apply two spritzes. It definitely has a rich, warm, spiciness and evokes images far off lands. Using too much, however, I see it conjuring up images of your grandmother's best friend on Sunday morning.
Genre: Woody Oriental
Samsara coulda’ been a contender. Having long since established the genre benchmark in Shalimar, the house of Guerlain apparently felt compelled to compete in the Opium-fueled spicy oriental sweepstakes of the 1980s. In the bid to outdo Opium, Cinnabar, and Coco, Guerlain employed what has to be the loudest synthetic woody note I’ve ever smelled. Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez identify it as Polysantol, but whatever its name, it manages not only to smell like an industrial petrochemical, but to do so at a crushing volume. The grievously misguided IFRA should be banning stuff like this, rather than hobbling the art of perfumery by regulating hydroxycitronellal and oakmoss.
All the more pity, since besides the monstrous pseudo-wood, Samsara gets everything right. The spice blend is beguiling, the amber is perfectly balanced between sweetness and animal warmth, and the floral notes blend into a bouquet that’s sensuous without being oppressively heady. If ever there was case for constructive reformulation, surely this is it. I’d love to smell the result were someone to take the Samsara formula and remove perhaps 75% of its synthetic wood. As it stands, I find Samsara harder to stomach than its heavyweight predecessors from Yves St. Laurent, Lauder, and Chanel.
