Modern aldehyde
The difference of Guerlain with those which sit beside on a shelve in boutiques appears on such perfumes. Even a mediocre creation by Guerlain is much higher than a dozen of others. This is experience and prestige.

Idylle is a soft shampoo'ish floral pseudo-aldehyde with crispy and captivating yummy floral fresh powdery opening.
In the beginning it is so inviting and then play of lily of the valley begins. And finally it's musk that dominates the combination.

Longevity: 6/10
Projection: 6/10
Scent: it obviously is a good daily daytime perfumes, maybe a signature scent if you don't usually change perfumes. A good scent but not WOW!

Typical of post-Y2K Guerlain
I reviewed Guerlain IDYLLE eau de parfum a while back and was decidedly unimpressed. With a fresh sample ready at hand, I decided to give this creation another try today. Conclusion: still mediocre.

I find a somewhat synthetic-smelling lily of the valley suspended in a somewhat sweet patchouli base very reminiscent of hundreds of fragrances in the post-ANGEL period. The fruit is quite a bit less prominent in this composition, but somehow the lily of the valley doesn't really pull its weight. I feel that lily of the valley may be too delicate to use in this sort of sweet patchouli fragrance. The tiny white bells seem to be muffled by the base, which is also too musky for my taste.

If I were to compare IDYLLE to another fragrance, it might be either JACOMO for her or Yves Rocher SO ELIXIR, both of which I find to be equally mediocre. One thing is for sure, as Miss K observes below, this is really nothing like classic Guerlain, and yet another reason why I no longer blind buy from this house, which was my favorite back in the twentieth century...

A floral lacking in Guerlain's classic style
Idylle is pretty but not very memorable. After the scent had disappeared from my skin I found it hard to recall.

A nice and what I'd call, safe blend of predictable florals. I can't say that I got much in the way of a 'perfect rose fragrance', the rose was overshadowed by the lily and freesia notes. Its simplistic composition would smell wonderful as a bar of soap but in a fragrance this is far too linear and common.

I must agree that this a very classy floral, it certainly smells expensive, but I just can't help feeling disappointed and coming to the conclusion that Idylle lacks character. Nevertheless, the sillage and lasting strength is good, and although I don't think this will be an overly popular scent, I do appreciate it for all that it is.

The scent of romantic love: a bouquet composed round a vibrant Jasmine- LOTV heart with warm musky notes at the base. Wonderful sillage
