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.
