A classical spicy-floral-vanilla
Long discontinued, I was lucky enough to find a sealed bottle of Metallica for a reasonable price earlier this year. The bee bottle is a work of art, but the juice itself is equally impressive.

Metallica is a spicy-floral-vanilla. The spicy carnation is a prominent note in the earlier phases of scent development. In the heart, ylang-ylang is the primary floral I detect. The classical warm Guerlainde base follows, highlighted by the gorgeous vanilla note that Guerlain has mastered.

The fragrance perfumes quite well for an EDT. Personally, I plan on wearing the fragrance all-year-round (except daytime in the summer) and I would classify it as a unisex fragrance. Metallica is a true masterpiece from Jean-Paul Guerlain and is one of the best vanilla fragrances I have come across.

Vanillica in extremo
Why James, Lars and the rest of the rock brothers have opened such a barrel, when Guerlain chose their band name Metallica for this product, is not understandable to me and makes them also not sympathetic. What this name, soon to be changed, said about the fragrance, however, is - as is usually the case - also hard to fathom. Metalys, as it was later called, I find nicer anyway, and just as metallic. (And playing metal should be left to Tenacious D.)
Is there now really metal in the Metallica?
Well, the top note is spicy-floral, resembles the prohibitive Rêve de Lune by Guerlain, and you could call it cool. With a lot of benevolence also metallic. But above all, almost from the first minute, the vanilla is there! Not a boozy one, like in SDV, not a sultry one, like in Aqua Allegoria Ylang Vanilla (my top AA!), not an oriental smoky vanilla, not a custard vanilla like in many other fragrances.
It's probably the best and most durable vanilla to ever dominate a Guerlain fragrance.
It's sweet but not sticky, is present and performing but not overbearing. The cloves spice it, the oranges fertilize it, and the iris powders it. Tonka gives it the nuttiness.
Incredibly good and balanced. I understand why vast sums are asked for this now hard to get masterpiece, because vanilla can Guerlain anyway good, but rarely as good as in Metallica.

Metallica is a queen
If i only get the chance to hold on to one bottle (of my outrageous 200+ collection) then it would be my today's SOTD.
It is such a versatile perfume and can be worn 24/7 and 365 days of the year.
This is not a perfume it is a warm cozy bed, a friend that comforts you when you feel alone. It makes me feel stronger when i have an important meeting or am fighting against evil thoughts or even evil persons. I get a big smile from ear to ear when i only lift up the top of the bottle and take a sniff of that miracle juice. Feeling a queen when i wear this or does it wear me instead? A fairy tale comes to live, dreams can come true, i believe!!!
