The 2015 reformulation:
The opening notes are a basket of of fruits and flowers, with a ripe plum with a touch of a sightly nutty undertone also being present.
In the drydown it turns into a dark rose combined with a soft carnation, which forms a floral dyad. Slightly sweetish cinnamon - not too creamy and more on the elegant side - develops and adds richness to the whole mix.
The base retains the richness, with the cinnamon passing the baton to a quite restrained vanilla, which expressed discrete ambery undertones.
I get moderate sillage, excellent projection and a tremendous twelve hours of longevity
This composition demonstrates that reformulations are not always resulting in bad outcomes. Smooth, good for evenings on cooler spring and autumn days, it is blended superbly from high-quality ingredients, although it lacks structure. Of the fragrance releases under the Guerlain name in the last fifteen years this is one of the best. 3.5/5.
