    Question Guerlain Week?

    As I recall, this was tentatively scheduled for March.

    Is the game afoot? Who's in charge?? An adoring fan who has all her Guerlain ducks in a row wants to know (with a bow to Quinpus!!).

    Oh yeah, I recall that as well. I need to get some more Guerlains if I don't want to do any repeats (Mitsouko, Jicky, Mitsouko, Ji...). The attention brought to Habit Rouge lately has made me wear it today from my sample. Need more of it no doubt. Why did I consider this one stuffy before? I love it.

    Also need to get me that expensive bottle of Attrape-Coeur soon... so little money, so many fragrances! *sob*

    I had a dream about L'Heure Bleu last night. I've been on this site way too much. *frown*

    Only own Mitsouko, to date.

    I can do Guerlain, they are the house I own most fragrances from.
    A different one for seven days, no problem!

    According to the last planning, the 7-day Guerlain feasting should start on 10th March and each day should be dedicated to a different family: oriental, woody, floral and so on. I think coumarin will be posting a dedicated thread some days in advance.

    yes - guerlain week! who's in charge? i nominate whoever instituted the poll. (unless it was riannon or lady_in_black - those guys are off the hook for their lutens week.)

    you know what can be helpful is those guerlain samplers with the mini bottles. i have baby bottles of mitsouko, champs-elysses, shalimar, samsara all in one kit, so if people don't have some, that might be a good option. those are all fairly easy to come by, and many people have them.

    we could also do l'heure bleu, jicky, vol de nuit. what about insolence? too new?

    yay this will be fun! (bowing back at you, taolady!)

    I nominate the one who started this idea and if that person steps down, why not Taolady? I have many Guerlains, but may not be able to participate becauses my life has gotten somewhat busy lately. I still love this perfume site and will check in often as possible. This site is fun and therapeutic.

    Thanks Christina. Guess we'll all wait patiently - it IS three weeks away.....sigh. Are there SEVEN families? (Sounds very "Sopranos"!!)

    Moondeva - will be in touch about some of your babies!!

    And looks like we'll have a goodly crew!! (Thanks for the vote of confidence dear Danae - but I plead inexperience...:bounce

    Yikes! I feel like I overslept Yes, per the poll-related thread, the fabulous Guerlain Week is scheduled to commence on Saturday, March 10. (I swear I was going to request a sticky post this weekend.) The week will be organized loosely with a fragrance type for each day, rather than just one, to accommodate a variety of collections and preferences, and to cram in as many Guerlains as possible

    Should we try to do review signups for particular Guerlains with the aim of collectively wearing as many as possible? I don't think we'll hit them all, but it might be fun to try. I wouldn't want to discourage others from wearing a given scent because it's "taken" though.

    Here's the outline so far (thanks to Riannon for her many additions) suggestions welcome. Moondeva, could you please post categories for the other ones you listed that I missed, so I can add them to the lineup?

    1) ORIENTAL - Saturday
    Shalimar
    L'Heure Bleue
    Vol de Nuit
    L'Instant / Homme
    Samsara
    Jardins de Bagatelle
    Winter Delice AA
    Bois d'Armenie
    Metallica/Metalys

    2) FLORAL - Sunday
    Apres L'Ondee
    L'Heure Bleue
    Jardins de Bagatelle
    Les Meteorites
    Nahema
    Chamade
    Champs Elysees
    Insolence
    Aqua Allegorias Ylang & Vanille, Lavande et Velours, Neroli, Florifolia
    Rose Barbare
    Bois d'Armenie
    Guet-Apens/Attrape-Coeur
    Metallica/Metalys
    Guerlinade
    Gentiana (AA series)
    Plus que Jamais
    Purple Fantasy

    3) AMBER/VANILLA - Monday
    Samsara
    L'Instant / Homme
    Insolence
    Habit Rouge?
    Aqua Allegorias Ylang & Vanille
    Guet-Apens/Attrape-Coeur
    Angélique Noire

    4) CHYPRE - Tuesday
    Mitsouko
    Nahema
    Parure
    Vetiver
    Jicky
    Sous la Vent
    Rose Barbare
    Corolian
    L'Instant Homme
    Habit Rouge
    Bois d'Armenie
    Guet-Apens/Attrape-Coeur

    5) HESPIREDIC/FRUIT -Wednesday
    Shalimar
    Mitsouko
    Jicky
    Vol De Nuit
    Parure
    Mahora
    Corolian
    Vetiver
    Eau de Guerlain
    Aqua Allegorias Pamplune, Winter Delices, Grosellina, Tutti Kiwi, Orange Magnifica, Lemon Fresca
    Aroma Allegoria: Aromaparfum Vitalisant
    Eau Hégémonienne
    Guet-Apens/Attrape-Coeur
    Purple Fantasy

    6) ANIMALIC/LEATHER OR WOODY - Thursday
    Jicky
    Samsara
    Cuir Beluga
    Shalimar
    Derby
    Winter Delice AA
    Bois d'Armenie

    7) YOUR FAVORITE GUERLAIN (and why) - Friday

    As you can see, I'm trying to be as loose as is reasonable in assigning fragrances to multiple categories to allow for a variety of collections and tastes. Rebels should feel free to ignore the schedule and wear what ever Guerlain pleases

    Oh goody! Fearless Leader is here!

    (Hope I didn't jump the gun - just had all my beauties lined up and....well, you know...! :bounce

    When you say: "Should we try to do review sign ups for particular Guerlains with the aim of collectively wearing as many as possible?" do you mean have each of us who wants to commit to reviewing a specific frag for each day?

    And: "We should put the best choices for each category toward the top of each list. As you can see, I'm trying to be as loose as is reasonable in assigning fragrances to multiple categories to allow for a variety of collections and tastes." When you say "best" you mean most typical? Most popular? Most representative?

    There are so many more Guerlains than there were Lutens' it might be best to keep it simple and just stick to types and let the reviews fall where they may!

    "Rebels should feel free to ignore the schedule and wear what ever Guerlain pleases !"
    You're my kind of girl!!!

    Thanks so much for taking this on!! Know it's going to be a big success!

    Hmm, "best choice for each category toward the top of each list"
    Are you sure you want to do this? Who decides what is "the best choice"? There will be as many opinions as there are participants, I suppose.

    Why not make it easy on yourself and let everybody choose what scent (s)he wants from the list for day#1, day#2.....

    And I totally agree on the 'rebel freedom'

    Well, I have more than enough Guerlains to say: I am in. Lock, stock and ..eh..bottle!

    Oh, Coumarin, this will be another week of feasting :bounce:

    Sounds great, especially after being so down re: Mitsouko reformulation. Let's celebrate the good stuff now (including new Mitsouko for those who like it).
    Let's see... (rummage, rummage...)
    Mitsouko (90s vintage)
    L'Heure Bleue
    Samsara

    AA Anisia Bella
    Terracotta Voile d'Ete
    Cherry Blossom (the original, yes, it's lovely!)
    AA Winter Delice (I like it on linens, but not on me)

    I'm definitely OK to go!

    I think Guerlinade is missing! Floral in my opinion.

    Coumarin, do you want a 'menu' from us all with the scents we will most likely use?
