To celebrate the opening of its boutique in the "Cour des Senteurs" in Versailles, Guerlain interprets the sumptuous world of the legendary
kings and queens who marked the history of France. As a tribute to the majesty and magic of the balls thrown at the ChÃ¢teau de Versailles, Guerlain created the exclusive Cour des Senteurs â€“ Versailles edition.
The iconic White Bee bottle puts on its most beautiful attire. A flamboyant red bow, enhanced with a golden drop engraved with the
double G, decorates the bottleâ€™s neck. The royal star, borrowed from the heritage of Guerlain, echoes the brilliance of the Sun King.
A refined bottle for an elegant and sensual fragrance with a royal aura, in which jasmine, Marie-Antoinetteâ€™s favourite flower, leads the dance.
Inspired by the gardens of the ChÃ¢teau of Versailles, Thierry Wasser chose the finest essences to create this perfume and its royal fragrant trail. The top notes of the perfume are the lively green scents of bergamot and galbanum. The beautifully noble Calabrian jasmine (Jasminum grandiflorum) leads the dance with its voluptuous sensuality, decked in fresh spring flowers of cyclamen and jasmine. Amber and white musk adorn the majestic trailing base notes with an unforgettable grace.
Top notes: bergamot, galbanum
Heart notes: cyclamen, jasmine
Base notes: freesia, lily of the valley, amber, white musks
It seems from the press material that Cour was inspired by & created for the Versailles, but commenters at NST say that it's very similar/identical to Aqua Allegoria Jasminora, and there are quite a few notes overlapping: galbanum, bergamot, cyclamen, jasmine, freesia, lily of the valley.
I've learnt not to trust official notes presented by marketing departments, so the overlap might not mean much, but I hope someone here can do a proper test and report back.
Notes for Jasminora:
Top: galbanum, bergamot, cyclamen
Heart: jasmine, freesia, lily of the valley
Base: musk, amber
