Glad you reminded me of this- need to get that bottle out! I've had it for eons, had initially written it off, thought it wasn't Guerlain enough. Then last year I sampled lots of lilac fragrances, all of which were gorgeous if not super exciting. Remembered that Champs Elysees has that butterfly bush note, which is similar to lilac. In fact, I'm guessing that the same aromachemicals are responsible for both lilac and butterfly bush, does anyone know? Anyway, was really coming around to Champs Elysees; my opinion of it went up the more I thought of it as simply a pretty floral. Think we'll continue to become better friends now, it really is lovely. How Turin could call such a dainty, delicate, pretty little thing "crass" is beyond me.
