The best L'Instant version
L’Instant de Guerlain Parfum is an utterly stunning powdery floral with a vanillic/ambery base in true Guerlain style. The primary note to my nose is magnolia, fresh and dewy, drenched in the sweetness of honey. Iris highlights the powdery elements of the scent, and the composition is enhanced by vanilla/benzoin in the base. The scent feels vintage with a modern twist.

The Parfum has excellent longevity on skin but the projection is limited. I prefer to wear it during the fall and spring seasons. The scent profile is traditionally feminine, but if you enjoy powdery florals, this is worth a try. Overall, the Parfum is an extremely classy, delicate, tender and warm scent, and is an absolute joy to wear.

Granny's silk arms
My grandmother was an ordinary woman. A seamstress. After the birth of 3 children, she helped her husband in the shop, stood faithfully by his side for 60 years. She lovingly cared for 7 grandchildren during the holidays. And because I was her only granddaughter, she always bonded with me behind my grandfather's back against his strict decision - mainly she secretly saved me from thick meat and milk skin at lunch. She just ate it quickly. :)
It never occurred to me (and probably to her) that she would openly oppose her husband.
When my grandfather died, I was already 24 and came to her in the hut. She told me by candlelight that night when she was young, she was in love with a young man and wanted to marry him.
Her parents, however, decided that she should marry another man - a strict, 7 years older gentleman with little hair and lameness. She was unhappy, but after the First World War such weddings were still common... Children came and forgot with them. Grandma is used to it. Only now - after many years - she told me about her first and only love ...
She died in her sleep at the age of 90, as she deserved for her dedication and commitment. And I - if she was still with us, I would very much like to dedicate this extra to her - L'Instant de Guerlain. It smells of honey like the air in her garden, is as smooth as her face and silky soft as her hands. Also surprising, her confession after years...
