    Default Guerlain 'With Love' - Is it really that good and was it limited edition?

    Just bought a 50ml EDT unsniffed for $16.99 off the 'Bay.

    The bottle looks really tacky if you ask me, but I'm a sucker for the bouchon cur
    flacon.

    Read some good reviews and was wondering whether there are any detractors.

    And I understand that it was discontinued after 2005?

    Love it. Just bought my FIFTH bottle off ebay. It's a simple, nice rose-peony fragrance, but the "white amber" drydown is the real kicker. I actually prefer it when the bottle's gotten half empty, because the topnotes fade more quickly, delivering me to that rose/peony/amber cloud. But I am extra partial because I got my first bottle as a 25th anniversary gift from our daughter.

    Yes, it was limited edition. There was a streak of love-named frags released once a year, and this is generally reviewed as the best one.

    Thanks for the info! Now I don't regret this impulse buy.

    P/S : The other 'Love' frags like the current 'Love is All' are very un-Guerlain-like in their tackiness.

    Others like 'Purple Fantasy' also look very tacky in their packaging...

    I would never dream of acquiring these....unless they were free of course!

    With all due respect, I am totally not impressed by With Love -- another fruity floral, lacking character or features.

    5 out of 5 Basenoters rate it positively. It's nice to have a dissenting view...
