When I was reading The Guide - I really got excited about a lot of the Guerlain fragrances. Turin & Sanchez do love many of them, and yet also call a few downright horrible (Champs Elysees, etc). During these parts of reading The Guide, inevitably I would think of you Mr. Guerlain. I kept saying to myself, well Mr. Guerlain does talk so highly of this scent...I guess he was right.
I was a little bummed by his two star rating of SDV, but overall I think he paid a lot of respect and admiration for the house as a whole. Rightly so. Guerlain has continued to impress me, since I have been here at Basenotes.
