I don't understand how people can smell notes which are basically mute.
Mon Guerlain stays linear from first moment throughout to drydown were it slightly softens - the sandal does the magic. It's a blast of loud iris, jasmine, vanilla and patchouli. Very nice, but not enough to compel me to buy. Too powdery, too sweet.
Great sillage - if you like this type of florals - but it can be overbearing if you don't. Kinda classic of other times compared to more modern types of similar fragrance.
I prefer the floral flanker, way better.
