No layers, no texture
This one felt relentless and exhausting, all heart notes all the way through. I like light perfumes, I like gourmands and absolutely love aromatic notes, but here everything is so smoothly blended that the result is a bit grotesque. It's a sweetish smell that does not suggest any known confection, prickles the nose a bit (the herbs here, although not individually recognisable), and doesn't have a story to tell. I also find it unconvincing as a personal scent. It's a wall of smell without the sparkle of top notes or the depth and intimacy of a base. It's flat, it's dull and tiresome and I don't just mean that it's boring, but that it's the olfactory equivalent of an unwanted song stuck in your head.

Hide and seek in the grass
Don't let my statement discourage you - the scent is by no means bad, but it did irritate me quite a bit at first. The name literally conjures up a fluffy cuddly marshmallow fragrance (Guimauve=Marshmallow) and I was curious how that should work -in view of the lush herbaceous-floral-spicy-woody fragrance pyramid.

Well, it didn't work right away. The scent actually starts off green-herbaceous, only then comes the warm sweetness that lingers on the skin for a longer time without any changes. This note is not sticky-penetrating, but inviting and actually reminiscent of a dessert - marshmallow or cotton candy. The woody base notes are, unfortunately, barely perceptible to me.

The scent lasts about 7 hours on my skin, the projection and sillage are moderate. On clothing, the scent lasts much longer and remains pleasant throughout.

So, my verdict turns out mixed - the fragrance has first before me his gourmandigkeit vorborgen and showed me a long herbaceous-spicy tongue, the rogue! His marshmallow heart, however, he has in the right place and therefore donates willingly a few hours of cozy sweet warmth.

If you are looking for a somewhat cleaner and finer version of a Guimauve fragrance that lasts a little longer on the skin, but is much more expensive, you might find it here: Guimauve de Noël/31

80's deodorant
Very rarely does a fragrance make me want to scrub it off. I lasted two hours - then it was unbearable for me. The scent goes in the direction of sweet 80's deodorant. My Melody or Impulse, bad memories. I never smell marshmallow, mint or Nivea at any time.

Short fresh start but this is a warm
complex powdery gourmand, a bit thicker than I expected but very french and perfumey. Haute cuisine.
