Reviews of Mon Guerlain

No doubt Guerlain has spent a good part of the past 15 years or so trying to keep its name at the forefront of the collective mind of the mass perfume-buying public. Which is fine. Even the French have to send their kids to college, and they can’t do it on the strengths of Mitsouko and Shalimar alone.

And it hasn’t been all bad. L’Instant and Insolence are very good, though I don’t own them. And Parfum Initial is in my opinion great. Also targeted for mass appeal, you bet, but it didn’t insult those masses. It gave them a beautifully updated and almost humorous riff on a classic that at the same time managed to throw off tons of modern sparkle and charm. That Guerlain pulled the plug on PI after only a few years (as they do with all Shalimar flankers, most of which range from very good to drop-dead great), sending yet more 'fume freaks scrambling over to the ‘Bay to hoard bottles, makes me wonder if Wasser and Co. don’t suffer from some kind of attention deficit disorder.

And maybe, at this point, an inability to innovate? Seriously, does the world really need Mon Guerlain, yet another well-made but inoffensive scent? Perfectly fine, sure, but also perfectly generic, perfectly redundant, and perfectly calibrated to be as easy-to-grasp as every paint-by-number juice that hits the counters these days. A hit of something citrus up front, followed by an iris that momentarily echoes that of Parfum Initial’s, some lavender to tone down the sweetness, some musk to keep it clean, and enough vanilla in the dry down to hit that perfect pastry note, since it seems that everyone these days wants to end up smelling like a donut.

I laughed when I saw that Angelina Jolie is the spokesperson. Really? I’d be embarrassed if I were her. Don’t mind me, though. Mon Guerlain is probably selling like gangbusters.

Mon Guerlain is wonderful.
This scent is so elegant, feminine and lovely!
The opening is fresh and floral with lavender, jasmine and bergamot. Then it turns into a delicate, soft, delicious scent, warm, powdery, cozy, slightly sweet.
The lasting power is good, the sillage is divine.
Absolutely marvellous, one of the best vanilla fragrances.
Great nose, Mr Wasser.

Mon Guerlain has been welcomed as a gift by our 16-year-old daughter as her first fragrance.

Many other fragrances from luxury houses were tested, however, nothing else clicked like Mon Guerlain.

The notes and ingredients deserve appreciation.

The notes can be seen as consistent with the artistry and humanitarian work of Angelina Jolie.

A search on Youtube shows that Mon Guerlain is rated as the best girlfriend fragrance by guys, including Jeremy.

IMHO, Guerlain has made the creation of a modern interpretation of femininity in a very popular scent look EASY, though of course, making it look easy requires a master perfumer.

Candy Guerlain...

What I get from Mon Guerlain is a sweet vibe. One which reminds me of a gourmand. In fact I consider this a gourmand in the same way that La Petite Robe Noire is.

I get the vanilla, lavender and tonka, but there seems to be an undertone of a caramel-like vibe... along with powdery iris etc. I find it very wearable (even on a man's skin), much in the same way that La Petite Robe Noire was. In fact, if that fragrance was for night time, then this is for the day. I also find it much more versatile than La Petite Robe Noire, though not as original.

I have read that Jicky was the inspiration (and starting point) for this fragrance. It's probably correct to say that this is a gourmand version of Jicky. I find it probably sits in between all the other sweet, female marketed fragrances today. I now understand why Guerlain need to release this in order to compete on the market, although the quality of ingredients here is quite high. It's well made for what it is.

Overall, this would be something to recommend. I can't see this being worn on an older person, but for a younger woman under the age of 40 I think this could work really well. I also think that this would be great on a young man's skin, but it would take a man who is comfortable with smelling sweet, it's a daring move in that respect. Only time will tell whether this becomes a classic. I am on the fence with it really.

Mon Guerlain doesn't smell too bad up close. It's not great, but within the context of modern trends in perfumery, it smells typical. It even reminded me slightly of Guerlain Iris Ganache or perhaps even Dior Homme Intense, in its best moments. The smell it was projecting, however, did not work for me, and it was striking me as a scrubber.

Take Angel and give it a super big sweet vanilla infusion and you have Mon Guerlain. Angel with whipped cream on top.

For the great house to stoop so low as to create a flanker to someone else's success, even though that perfumer has been employed by Guerlain to create this, is still a pretty weak act. I guess Wasser, after creating eleventy-two flankers to his iconic hit himself, woke up one morning in the lab and said, "Eureka, I forgot the sweet vanilla flanker accord! Why, I'll just slip this formula into my new employer's lab's mail box and they'll never know."

Nice, but an unremarkable copy of an established hit with a tiny twist.
