A quiet beauty.
The scent softens to an almond/vanilla skin scent.
Test this on skin, not paper and wait for the dry down. Perhaps you'll find a new love, perhaps not. Either way, it's worth the experience.
A sweet candy gourmand, very soft and subtle. Immediately reminds me of something I owned as a child. Candy musk sticks and strawberry chapsticks, a faint almond and vanilla base.
Delicious almond orange blossom fragrance with plenty of sweetness. Similar to the 68 eau de parfum in the rectangular bottle, but a bit more powdery than that one. Totally addictive and feminine.
I'm not exactly sure what's going on here, but I seem to be smelling something different from pretty much everyone else here. Perhaps the version to show up in the boutiques in 2013 is different from the original - that seems like something Guerlain would do... As sprayed from the tester at the Guerlain boutique, the Mon Precieux Nectar I've been wearing starts off with that Guerlain cherry note (the one they use in LPRN, but with pleasant cinnamon and pie spices instead of the booze) over a tame guerlinade of doughy suede, that ionone make-up smell, and some subtly powdery vanilla. It's quite nice, and VERY Guerlain, managing to hit almost all the house notes.
That being said, that suede Guerlinade middle section made me want to sniff L'Heure Bleue again. Unfortunately Precieux, which was great on its own, just seemed simplified and lacking in nuance compared to the grand dame, like a Charlotte Church PBS special compared to a real night at the opera. Long story short, I may have walked out wearing Mon Precieux Nectar, but only after I finally splurged on a bottle of L'Heure Bleue extrait...
A little piece of art!
This is by far the best creamy white floral with gourmand nuances that my nose has ever came accross. Honeysuckle perhaps? Drydown is to die for, sweet and almondy, I just can't stop sniffing my wrist. Superbly well done. Bravo, Guerlain!
