    Default Guerlain Muguet 2011 - If you could, Would you?

    If you walked into a store and saw a bottle of Guerlain's 2011 Muguet in sealed box, would you buy it?

    What's the price? I understand the Guerlain muguets are very expensive.

    So far, Luca Turin's statement that the IFRAs restrictions have made it impossible to do a good muguet has held, so I would not buy, unless said bottle costed $10 or less. Rather, I'd spend the money, as I do, on vintage Diorissimo.

    No...I smelled the 2011 and the 2012 and they have too much jasmine for my taste.

    Pretty sure it was $520.00. I was able to get a brief sniff. They actually had two of them there. I found it to be a very nice scent, but agree with 30, very top heavy with Jasmine.

    The funny thing is, I do not remember seeing them at the store before Guerlain's National Director of Fragrances was there this past weekend. After seeing those two, was hoping I was able to find a bottle of 180 ANS, but no such luck.

    Truthfully, I was looking at it from the collectors value of a limited production, numbered series perfume, more so that actually wearing it.
