Les jardins de bagatelle is my favourite.
"The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.
You begin to awaken"
-- Eckhart Tolle
Being a Guerlainiphile myself, my faves are:
Mitsouko (absolutely my most favorite perfume ever!)
Vol de Nuit
I love Chamade and have a full bottle of vintage extrait that I got for a steal on ebay. It is the treasure of my small collection!
If I can only pick one it would have to be L'Heure Bleue.
Jicky for day and Shalimar for night.
Vintage Shalimar, any 60's bottle
Vintage or 80's L'heure Bleue any
Vintage Nahema edt or any
Vintage Parure any
When I first saw this thread I thought, "None of the Guerlains work for me"...but then I recalled that the Aqua Allegoria line is from Guerlain. Flora Nerolia is marvelous, and I also like Lilia Bella's lilac note, in there with the LOTV, which I prefer to the jasmine note used these days in so many lily of the valley scents-- including Guerlain's very exclusive Muguet.
I do wish the newer A.A. scents were available in CT stores. Our Sephora only has a couple of the older ones.

i have tried so many Guerlains by now, except Jicky and MDM...not yet on my way...but have tried HR , Mitsouko PDT! wow,shalimar PDT!!and vintage Samsara and my favourite, the one i really wear every day, is:
flollowed by shalimar and mitsouko pdt! Mitsouko has beautiful galbanum note...so spiced, and still strong! people were right these are best concentrations....
Bois D'Arménie and Cruel Gardenia.
Vetiver, Mouchoir de Monsieur, Heritage, Habit Rouge, Guerlain Homme limited edition EDP
Should reformulations of some or all of these scents exist, I'd still like them in any formulation available.
Current Vol de Nuit parfum.
Too many to name 1 as the favorite - Vetiver / Habit Rouge / Mouchoir / Bois de Armenie / Jicky - list goes on...
I've never really been able to get into the classics (blasphemy, I know), but I love several of the AAs (Pampelune, Mandarine Basilic, Herba Fresca) and Spiritueuse Double Vanille.

Guerlain Shalimar Ode a la Vanille Sur la route de Madagascar. I can barely detach my nose from my arm.
