Balsam or stinker
The pink Mon Guerlain has been in my possession for a long time. Why haven't I written a Kommi yet? Maybe because he's splitting me in half. I'm torn. I'm torn.

There are days when I love this cuddly, fresh vanilla. It makes me feel like lgli says, calming. So pleasant, lulling, cuddly and balsamic. Beautiful.

Then again there are days when I am scared of myself. I spray it on and I'm struck by sweet, sweet and sweet again. Squeaky sweet. I can't stand him there, so bad I have to wash him off.

I've never felt it that bad about any other scent before. You always have these fluctuations. One day this scent is beautiful, the next day the other. I have a pretty broad fragrance spectrum and don't like to settle on fresh or sweet or oriental or whatever. I'm always changing too. There's no particular direction. But they always associate me with fresher scents.

The fragrance starts fresh and vanilla. Pleasantly lulling and tender. After a short time it gets warm and deeper, so it stays until the end. On the good days, that's my favorite part. It's also more creamy vanilla, not so sticky anymore. Maybe it's the sandalwood. Then I wish I always liked him so much. The shelf life is above average. The silage is not room-filling, rather close to the body.

I think the bottle's pretty. Especially the cloverleaf clasp.

Calming - Spray
Careful dosage is also important for this fragrance. It smells soft, sweet but not sugary, powdery, erotic, feminine and lasts long.
If you spray without thinking, all fragrances simply stink, including this one. If everyone would pay attention to that, a lot of water would not be so hated!
With Mon Guerlain you also have a soul comforter and warming, soothing energy that gently caresses your head.
After stressful times or a stirring argument, where one shuffles sadly through life, the beautiful Guerlain comrade helps as with magic hand. Its finely created aroma interplay makes you happy.

In the vanilla base he (me) reminds easily of Lalique Le Parfum, which shows a similar effect for me.

Jealousy! Forced to buy!
It was a Saturday I was with my girlfriend in the beautiful city of Wiesbaden. I couldn't reach my friend in the meantime so I started to worry. At the end of the evening he finally called me. When we talked for a moment he told me I sent you a photo you have to take a look at it and buy it immediately if you are in town. Of course I was very curious and already looked on the phone at my display and what did I see? a photo what was made of another mobile phone and namely the flacon of guerlain Mon. My friend is someone who has a very bad nose he hardly smells perfume on me and has no idea of it. so I was very shocked at first how he got on it. he told me he had a customer who wore this perfume and the fragrance would be so beautiful that he had to talk to her on it. he had asked her absolutely to show what she wears. he had asked her to show me what she wears. Of course I had jealousy feelings at first but then I was so curious that I went straight to the Douglas. On the first moment I could not smell because I had on the day some cold so I bought directly times the 50ml flacon and took her home. I have tested this perfume for three days and it is very rare for me to wear the same perfume for 3 days. It is really inexplicable to me that this perfume even came on the market. She's nothing special there are thousands of of this kind. It is only a little creamy and vanilla lavender can be smelled but only because you know that it is not more inside. It's just as inexplicable as my boyfriend ever noticed this fragrance because it's very soft and light even my heaviest perfumes he never noticed at least he said so. I would never have never bought it out of my own will it will and will remain my friend's perfume for which he has addressed another woman

NOCH a comment on Mon Guerlain...
Okay, I think it's time, I have to add my mustard. Mon Guerlain is a fragrance that has occupied me for several months and the more comments I read about this fragrance, the more I feel the need to describe my experiences I love the Guerlain classics and, before I knew Parfumo, I came through my (fragrance) life wonderfully alone with them. That's why I was very interested in this new release and went to a perfumery for a test spraying session. My first impression: sweet sweet sweet, just creepy qietschsüß. The second impression: a slightly artificial note with strong jasmine, still sweet, slowly fading over hours. Nix bergamot, nix lavender, I only discovered it in the fragrance pyramid. So far so bad, Mon Guerlain I had ticked off first.
Still, I caught myself sniffing around for hours. That combined with the fact that it is a guerlain (yes, I admit it...) led to the fact that the scent somehow did not go out of my mind. What does a freshly baked Parfuma do in such a dilemma - of course, fast times ´ne bottling ordered. Said - done, sniffed again. The smell impression the same - simply unwearably sweet! In between also tried the floral, but there the Jasmine kills me.
But at the same time I noticed with MG that the scent triggers something in me that I can't get enough of, something totally homey, secure, comforting - simply wonderful. Since then Mon Guerlain has had addictive character for me and the 100ml bottle moved in!
Meanwhile I could also identify bergamot and lavender and I find the fragrance simply ingenious. But in a completely different way than the classic Guerlains or the newer ones like Insolence or L´Instant de Guerlain. All these are much more individual and unique and more surprising in their fragrance. With Mitsouko, for example, one does not suspect at the beginning with the best will in the world what comes out in the end. MG is clearly more unspectacular: as soon as bergamot and lavender have vanished, a gentle transition to the heart note takes place, which lasts for hours to finally fade away just as gently in the vanilla base note. The war´s No big surprises. Also the fragrance pyramid does not promise anything earth-shattering. Nevertheless, the fragrance is ingenious because it implements both the simple structure and the gourmand trend perfectly and stylishly. That's exactly why he's a real guerrilla to me. Yes, new and fashionable or both at the same time, but in its implementation simply Guerlain.
I have also tested some other gourmands so far and found them all disgustingly sticky, sweet, artificial, too much of this, too much of that, somehow always horrible! The only one of this direction (which I have tested) that can beat MG is Mon Exclusif, as it smells even more natural. Well, Guerlain too, what should I do...
To be fair, however, for all MG critics my husband should be quoted again after this praise, who commented MG as follows: "How nice it was when you were still wearing Guerlain..."

My hug me
In Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Harry's fired classmate Neville Longbottom one day receives a memento (called Remembrall in its original version), a magical warning for the forgetful. The memory me looks like a big marble containing white mist. If you forget something, it turns glowing red. The pink Mon Guerlain is - in my opinion - a hug, a magic invitation to be hugged by people you love.

This hug mech is the latest eagerly awaited women's fragrance from Guerlain (published in 2017). Unavoidably advertised with Angelina Jolie, this Mon Guerlain called effective in advertising as "My invisible tattoo" (well...).

What makes Mon Guerlain a hug? Well, the prelude is determined by tender, powdery lavender, which is slightly accompanied by citrus notes. Soft, flattering gourmand notes that remotely remind me of marzipan emerge in the heart note. Officially listed are Jasmin-Sambac, Paradisone and Cumarin. The often onomatopoeic jasmine was used here reservedly and since I have no olfactory idea of Paradisone, I assume that this, paired with coumarin (which can also be obtained from tonka bean) determines the inviting, powdery-sensual fragrance character. In general, I notice vanilla in almost the entire fragrance, even if it is only listed in the base. The heart note of Mon Guerlain reminds me of the wonderful Macarons, which my son nibbled with great enthusiasm in the exclusive London Caffe Concerto the other day.

It is vanilla that carries the scent in the base paired with iris and sandalwood. Mon Guerlain is clearly on the currently very hip wave of gourmand fragrances, but I classify him as an adult gourmet fragrance that doesn't lack elegance for more official appearances. At this point I wave mischievously into the ivory tower once mentioned by Turandot here to the niche scent fans, nothing for bad people, but there are in both segments light and shadow.

Mon Guerlain may not be the reinvention of the wheel, but it is a high-quality good, beautiful and long-lasting fragrance (I notice it clearly for 6 hours) and I am happy that the Easter bunny put it in my nest in 2018. My favourite Shalimar Parfum Initial, which unfortunately isn't produced any more, he won't push me off my pedestal, but he will surely bring me many hugs from my family and friends.

The Mon Guerlain bottle reflects the timeless elegance of the emblematic Quadrilobé bottle designed by Gabriel Guerlain in 1908. It owes its name to the solidly worked closure, whose "four-leaf" form represents four cloverleaf sheets.

Mon Guerlain is a beautiful child of his time, whether my joy in this fragrance will continue to show in the future.

A little trip to Provence
The moment I sprayed this perfume, I imagined immediately a lavender field in Provence in springtime: the lavender opening note isn't too vibrant but well balanced and made smoother and more feminin by the flowery acchord and mainly by the vanilla base, a light and not too sugary or medicinal vanilla, very pleasant. The result is a very feminin fragrance to wear as a second skin mainly in the warm season. Unfortunately, the sillage isn't so strong. I was expecting a better longevity from a Guerlain's creation, anyway I like this scent, for its bottle too: very elegant, simple but refined at the same time. So, this one is a little trip to Provence. Ready to leave?

Vanilla, marzipan and cotton candy!
Mon Guerlain is a wonderful autumn/winter scent. The bergamot is hardly perceptible with me, the lavender quickly vanished and what remains is a fantastically sweet marzipan-sugar floss vanilla scent that quickly becomes too much for me in summer. On cooler days, however, it is the perfect cuddly scent reminiscent of the autumn fair and Christmas market. Sillage and durability are neat, much better than most other fragrances.

Lavender - sometimes not old-fashioned at all
For me, the most beautiful lavender scent ever. Not dusty at all, old-fashioned or prudish. Feminine, beautiful, harmonious. That's how I'd describe him. At the moment one of my favorites...

My Guerlain and I
Long we have sneaked around each other, or better said, I around him - like a cat namely, which wants to play a little, here better: a little smell.
It wasn't like maybe somewhere else where you're in a shop whispering a lot from the shelves: "Buy me, buy me, buy me"
No, my Guerlain is rather galan and gallant, is reserved, unobtrusive, and just as sustainable at the same time. So e.g. he doesn't get out of your head so fast, if you like this fragrance, and this one or that one would have at least honestly hardly anything to complain about him.

At some point I received a miniature of him, a short time later a sample. To break the miniature was too bad for me, but the rehearsal, which had to be tried, immediately at the first opportunity - and has me immediately fully weg- or better: hin- und umgereiß.
"Hours later" almost the same picture, unchanged, because my Guerlain has substance, is profound, persistent, not hypocritical or superficial, does not pretend anything, but is what he is, namely a faithful companion with a reserved presence - actually exactly what I am looking for
I like this type in general, very much even, namely those that don't start a fireworks display right away, only to draw attention to themselves and then sometime later go up in smoke, e.g.
My Guerlain behaves there - quite the opposite - completely differently:
When you spray it on, it almost literally recedes, envelops you and is immediately there again when you look for it. A light breeze is enough for him to draw attention to himself again and again, whispering "I am with you!" However, my Guerlain is completely invisible and yet you react to it, even turn around again, smile directly at you. Already 4 times it has happened, that strange people even speak to me about him just like that.

It's all so cheerful, it carries you almost by itself, this wafer-thin, silky, sometimes even warm veil around me, as if it's even about to lift gravity.

Vanilla overdose, seasoned with lavender..
Actually, I am looking for a fragrance with lavender and guerlains, which I like most of the time and (recently) I also like vanilla of the non-artificial variety. But I still don't get warm with Mon Guerlain. It starts at the beginning: Citric-vanilla, a little fresh, a little sweet, a tidy load of lavender. I like the components I smell, bergamot, lavender, quite well, but above them floats a synthetic-penetrant component for my nose, which is not directly fruity or floral, but simply sweetish. A little like very heavily perfumed sunscreen. And unfortunately "Mon Guerlain" is not becoming more wearable for me, but sweeter and sweeter - and even the vanilla, which I found very beautiful at the beginning because of the bergamot freshness, is getting on my nerves.
Unfortunately, unfortunately: This Guerlain is not the lavender scent I was looking for.

Nice fragrance, but lavender is not my thing
Two years ago I received a complimentary sample of Mon Exclusif together with a very successful overseas swap. The fragrance was really intriguing: subtle, yet very present; watery and somehow salty. The most prominent note was the salted caramel, but I could only perceive it after having faced the not-so-interesting lavender in the heart. I did some research after placing Mon Exclusif on my watchlist but soon decided I should let it go without ever owning it, the main reasons being its price and the difficulty to get it in the country where I live. A little after making acquaintance with Mon Exclusif I found out it was discontinued, with Mon Guerlain advertised unofficially as its substitute. So off to Mon Guerlain I went and probably due to Guerlain's worldwide campaign, Mon Guerlain landed pretty fast in stores near me. My expectations were not sky-high but I still got frustrated after testing it. While Mon Exclusif was a lovely composition, with delicate - yet noticeable - notes floating around me, Mon Guerlain was lavender. From top to bottom, all I get was lavender. There's a tiny touch of caramel, but it is far from the salty note that smelled so lovely on Mon Exclusif. I must say that my frustration was probably unconsciously driven by my admiration for Thierry Wasser. I simply adore many of his creations - Dior Addict 2002 being my all time favorite -, so probably I was expecting something more elaborated than what I got. I truly understand that Guerlain is a business company that, like all other companies, is based on profit. And I also understand that Mon Guerlain was made to be a crowd-pleaser that could drive more costumers to Gerlain's counters all over the world. And can you think of something more crowd-pleaser than lavender? Well, the good thing about still owning a bottle (a 50ml only, thank God!) of Mon Guerlain is that everytime I wear it, for the sake of being a Wasser’s Guerlain, I get reminded of the fact that lavender in not my thing. Sadly.

Candy Guerlain...
What I get from Mon Guerlain is a sweet vibe. One which reminds me of a gourmand. In fact I consider this a gourmand in the same way that La Petite Robe Noire is.

I get the vanilla, lavender and tonka, but there seems to be an undertone of a caramel-like vibe... along with powdery iris etc. I find it very wearable (even on a man's skin), much in the same way that La Petite Robe Noire was. In fact, if that fragrance was for night time, then this is for the day. I also find it much more versatile than La Petite Robe Noire, though not as original.

I have read that Jicky was the inspiration (and starting point) for this fragrance. It's probably correct to say that this is a gourmand version of Jicky. I find it probably sits in between all the other sweet, female marketed fragrances today. I now understand why Guerlain need to release this in order to compete on the market, although the quality of ingredients here is quite high. It's well made for what it is.

Overall, this would be something to recommend. I can't see this being worn on an older person, but for a younger woman under the age of 40 I think this could work really well. I also think that this would be great on a young man's skin, but it would take a man who is comfortable with smelling sweet, it's a daring move in that respect. Only time will tell whether this becomes a classic. I am on the fence with it really.

ce n'est pas mon guerlain
So, what is the recipe for a big-budget, got-to-be-successful, no-room-for-error, if-you-build-it-they-will-come perfume? To judge by Guerlain’s approach: Mix equal parts imitation, predictability and risk aversion in a large bowl. Bake in a lukewarm focus-group until stale. Sprinkle with olfactory least common denominators. Serve in a bottle replete with historical Awethenticity™. Buon appetito.

Am I cynical? Clearly, but I can’t hold a candle to Guerlain.

With Mon Guerlain Thierry Wasser proves he isn’t so much the successor to Jean-Paul Guerlain as he is the heir to Jacques Guerlain. Jacques was known for nicking someone else’s ideas (namely, François Coty’s) and making them better. Wasser attempts a Jacques Guerlain with two perfumes: Lancome’s end-of -the-world-as-we-know-it lollipop, La Vie Est Belle, and Mugler’s iconic poison-apple, Angel. The drag is that Mon Guerlain drowns in the syrup of the former but forgets the atonal war-cry of the latter. Angling between these two perfumes Guerlain casts its net as wide as possible, hoping for a hit that would break all box-office records.

The complication is that Guerlain looks to two perfumes that, though they both got a whole lotta ethylmaltol going on, are diametrically opposed. Angel might have launched two decades of straight-faced gourmand perfumes but it did so inadvertently. It was anything but straight. Angel’s cotton-candy is counterbalanced by an enormous inedible chemo-floral note and an earthy patchouli. It smells sweet, but it’s pure venom. La Vie Est Belle has no nuance, no subtext. It’s pure candy. Wasser’s Mon Guerlain looks for an easy reconciliation of the two perfumes because they are both overdosed with ethylmaltol. He misses the point that Angel, twenty five years later, is still a motherfucking monster. La Vie Est Belle on the other hand is the most vanillla of Disney fairy princesses.

Wasser uses lavender to twist Mon Guerlain into a taffy fougère. Pouring it into a version of the brand’s historical quadrilobe bottle is an attempt to draw a connection to Guerlain’s classic, sweet fougère Jicky, but don’t believe the hype. Despite the deception a list of notes provides, Mon Guerlain has no relationship to Jicky.
