Guerlain Parure (1975) Jean-Paul Guerlain Floral Chypre
•Top Notes: Aldehydes, Citrus Oils, Clary Sage Oil, Galbanum, Thyme •Heart Notes: Jasmine, Jonquil, Lilac, Lily of the Valley, Narcissus, Orris, Rose •Base Notes: Amber, Leather, Moss, Peru Balsam, Styrax, Vetiver
"Parure" means ornament, adornment, finery, often in the sense of jewelry. This is indeed sparkling and brilliant, like a ball gown or a diamond tiara. Green, citrus, and aldehyde notes in the top give the sparkle; delicate florals shimmer in the heart note; and orientals, leather, moss, and amber give depth and just enough gravitas in the base. In the drydown, this takes on a curious, cinnamic note, which has really been present all along, and just waiting its turn for the others to get out of its way in order to shine more brightly. A Jean-Paul Guerlain classic, without a doubt, worn as happily by some men as by women.

For me a work of fiction exists only insofar as it affords me what I shall bluntly call aesthetic bliss, that is a sense of being somehow, somewhere, connected with other states of being where art (curiosity, tenderness, kindness, ecstasy) is the norm. - Vladimir Nabokov
