Idylle Duet it`s an intenser rose version of the original idylle idea of a modern musky chypre bouquet. It makes me think of Rose Barbare, but better worked, with the base that is lacking on Rose Barbare. Duet has a rose bouquet which is halway modern interpretations and vintage versions, haveing a slightly link to the complex abstract and warm rose of Nahéma. The Rose here has the liqueur aspect intensified by the camphor aspect of patchouli, which creates a sweet woody base that lets rose sing forever on the skin. It`s smooth, complex, intense and longlasting, and i wished it was a permanent fragrance, not only a liimited edition.
Beautiful version of Idylle , more rose and patchouli . I think this is at last a new Guerlain I adore.
