    Not available in the US, you'd have to get someone from Europe or Asia to get it for you or pay a ridiculously absurd shipping cost from France.

    I copied the following from Bois de Jasmin perfume blog. It lists where these fragrances are available and about how much they cost:


    "Guerlain Rose Nacrée du Désert is available at the Paris Guerlain flagship store and Haute Parfumerie Place Vendôme in Belgium, both of which ship internationally. Edit (thanks to Katie): Harrods and Selfridges in London carry this line as well. Since Les Déserts d’Orient perfumes were originally created for the Middle Eastern market, the fragrances are also sold in the United Arab Emirates and other Middle Eastern locations. 75ml, 190 euros."

    As of recently, the staff at Guerlain at the Bergdorf Goodman, they are not yet in the U.S.

    Thank you all for the update. Noggs, great info.

    I think this is an interesting and wearable line from Guerlain and have all three.
    Thank you for your excellent reviews at your always superb blog Mr G. (from a fellow Guerlain nut)

    The advertising for this line is very misleading. Unless Guerlain have change the bottle design since I bought mine, the bottles look quite different from the way they appear in the ads.

    The glass is clear, not smoky grey. The juices are light colored -- pale pinkish brown for Rose Nacree, Encens a pale yellowish brown, and Songe almost like a slightly darker mixture of the two, a light to medium tan. The caps are shiny gold, not bronze. So the glass, juice and cap look nothing like they do in the photo, except for their shapes. The bottles aren't nearly as dramatic as the ads would have you believe. It's all done with fancy lighting or Photoshop. The bottles are nice, as are the boxes they come in, but not nearly as impressive as they appear in the ads.

    They come with small screw caps for use as a splash (as in the ads), but atomizers are included in the boxes. The atomizers are much taller than the screw caps, and once the atomizers are installed, the screw caps fit on them only loosely, they do not screw or snap on.

    I think the final products could easily have been made to look more like they do in the ads, but Guerlain settled for a more pedestrian look overall. Others may disagree, but I was disappointed when I saw the actual bottles.

    Me too. A little rinky-dink. Good solid heavy glass but among other things the all important spray mechanism puts out some real surprises. And for all that money there should be a tight-fitting cap for it. Disappointing but the juice smells great.
