Reviews of Mouchoir de Monsieur

I remember trying this one before, and it smelled like some 1800's decadent dandy bar of soap. After some years I can tell there's a lot of jasmine mixed with rose, and herbal notes. I can see why I thought this was a soap. It reminds me of some expensive hotel soap I showered with on vacation. It smells very classic with Jicky's civet and vanilla on the dry down.

Guerlain one of the oldest active perfume houses we still have today. Guerlain is a company found in 1828, always been a family company until 1994; since then it's in safe hands of the LVMH group. The greatest thing about Guerlain (today) - I think - is that the old (famous) fragrances are still made and sold in the best quality as is possible - that is also the case for Mouchoir de monsieur.

Mouchoir de Monsieur is a scent from 1904 (one of world's first 'men' scents). Made by Jacques Guerlain. When I smell it, I smell a bit dirtier and spicier Jicky (1889).

The composition is brilliant, qualitatively and exclusive. But the same applies to Jicky.

when applied it is wise not to want to smell right away, the scent needs time to develop itself (don't judge on the first few minutes on paper or skin), the treat is great, if you have patience.

A real classic, which clearly distinguishes itself from modern scents and is absolutely not superfluous since all those years. A great sense individuality.

it is difficult - for me - to explain what exactly I smell because of the large amount of ingredients - it's very well blended. I'm still trying; first I smell citrus/fresh notes, lavender, then other flowers ... something woody, earthy, sweet.

When you want a scent for evening dinner or for daily use...
Even for men who want something special to wear sometimes. With Mouchoir de Monsieur you can go in all directions. It is never boring.

I'm giving it a thumbs up for the staying power, 100+ years has to count for something. I was disappointed at first, I was looking forward to civet, and there was very little. People who dislike it mention the civet but this is nothing compared to some niche. It opens with waxy plastic and verbena. I've smelled this wax scent before, usually in frags with "amber" accords. Dry-down turns Jicky-like, with an amber/civet/musk scent. Settles down after 1/2hr into a nicer fragrance than the opening was. I get a similarity to Hugo Boss number 1 dry-down, only more animalic.

Same powdery Guerlain accord. Not bad but am getting tired of it.
