    Guerlain
    180 Ans de Création
    (2008)
    Jean-Paul Guerlain
    Amber Oriental

    ------------------
    Notes: Grapefruit, Bergamot, Pink Peppercorns, Jasmine, Orange Blossom, Tonka Beans, Musk, Vetiver, Amber-Toned Accord, Vanilla

    [Thanks to MoonFish for the official notes]
    ------------------
    An EdP released by Guerlain as a gift for the end-of-year holidays, 2008; not available commercially. In general terms a seductive, ambery oriental scent. This starts off as a fresh and slightly spicy top note, but the deeper ambery notes are evident fom the beginning. The progression is gradual, and seems linear at first, but later the layers begin to weave in and out, creating a kind of scintillating effect. This has good longevity; the sillage is prominent at the beginning and gradually tapers off as the drydown progresses. At first I thought this wasn't very ground-breaking, but each time I wear it, I gain a new appreciation for its construction and its many facets. Now I can see that it is worthy of Jean-Paul Guerlain.

    Notes of : Lily-of-the-valley, jasmine and orris root.
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."
