The most beautiful dreams are dreamed with open eyes!

Embruns d'Ylang has surprised me very positively ... the scent creates such a wonderful tropical feeling ... and that without coconut * amazement*
I dream myself away to tropical picture book beaches ... those from advertising - photos - films.
A journey there was not yet granted to me ... but never say never!
However one should like Ylang-Ylang already otherwise wird´s nothing to do with dreaming ;)

To the fragrance:
The new Guerlain starts with a very dominant but beautiful Ylang-Ylang-note.
Bergamot totally gets under my skin but doesn't bother me.
Soon mineral tones are added, not metallic and also not salty but rather sandy-dry I feel them.
The clove can remain stolen from me here, luckily I don't smell it here and I can't imagine that it would fit. But it's only my personal opinion!
But now there is a somewhat waxy jasmine note, which never disturbs but simply completes the floral impression of the fragrance.
At the latest when the iris powder pollinates everything and Guerlain's most beautiful vanilla is combined with patchouli to create such a harmonious vanilla cream, you have fallen for this fragrance!
The base is simply beautiful to dream away :)
A fragrance for the whole year (couldn't start a 30 degree test because of summer strike, but I can imagine that the mineral tones will be even better!)
The shelf life is 8 hours plus. A fine scenttaura surrounds me the first hours before Embruns d'Ylang becomes very close.
I feel the scent rather made for us women ... but brave men are allowed to test :)
The bottles in this Exclusif series are beautiful and of high quality and fortunately now available with normal atomizers.
But I decided for the filling station and the 20 ml travel bottle with these great leather sleeves. Doesn't always have to be a large bottle and they are also very pretty to look at, space-saving and practical :)

Ylang meets iris powder & mineral tones!
The most beautiful vanilla cream rounds off the whole thing! *Dream-me-away-fragrance*

Shush Test recommendation for all who love Ylang-Ylang :)

Thank you very much to the lovely Parfuma, who got me the fragrance because Sweetie couldn't wait until the next Oberpollinger visit!

Dreamlike exotic with neo guerlinade
I was undecided when I heard about a new interpretation of Ylang by Thierry Wasser: "Should I hope to meet a flowering firecracker à la Mahora/Mayotte again? Or a (overpriced) new edition of the best of all Aqua Allegorias - Ylang-Vanilla? Or will it be completely different than expected, as has been the case with the members of the Art et Matiere series on several occasions?
Both, the answer is.
Embruns d'Ylang is all that, and much more: It has a cooling powderiness like in Quand vient la pluie, but at the same time it also has borrowings from 190 Ans (almond honey/orange blossom) - both symptomatic for the newer representatives of the Art et Matiere line, Mon Precieux Nectar and also in other Guerlain fragrances of recent years to be found again and again.
But also memories of Mahora and AAVY are kept alive, by a sea-fresh and bulky, but nevertheless flower-creamy ylang-presence.
The fragrance was supposed to be a one shot, the TW said it could not guarantee that it could maintain this quality. And as with Parure it would then be: "If the scent is no longer feasible, then it no longer exists."
That would be tragic, because he's wonderful. Finely balanced, light, but nevertheless long lasting.

Gorgeous jasmine-iris-patchouli in an exotic ylang cloud.There is a slight salty note that gives an extra oomph to the blend. Beautiful!+3
