Hello Fellow Fumies,
At APJ we have a Saturday Question. Everyone gets to chime in with an answer, chat with other responders and it’s a fun event each week. Taking sides never means taking offence and everyone keeps it respectful and light, even though we can sometimes trawl the depths.
The idea is you’ll see it on the weekend or chime in through the week. Hopefully you will come back regularly and see if anyone has responded to your comment and you can reply to them. The aim is to generate real conversation and connection even though we are scattered around the globe.
Saturday Question: What Is Your Favourite Guerlain Fragrance?
Recently there was a Guerlain Week on Facebook Fragrance Friends. I love those special weeks because they remind me to think outside my usual parameters and wear things that have sat neglected or forgotten. It’s fun and interesting.
The Guerlain that get the most wear around here are Shalimar, Mitsouko and Samsara. I have loads of them and they’re really easy to find even if I was in danger of running out. The fragrance that is my favourite though is DCd, almost impossible to find and smells freaking amazing. I am so worried about not having any left that I almost never wear it.
Une Ville. Un Parfum – 01 Moscow by Guerlain 2009
Parfums gives these featured accords:
Top: Bergamot, Plum, Pine needle, Lemon, Absinth, Cranberry
Base: Sandalwood, Tonka bean, White musk, Vanilla
Looking at these notes I would NEVER have thought I’d even like this fragrance. Somehow though they fit me perfectly. That sweet, nutty, sharp fruitiness that gives way to creamy white musk, woods and sweet beans captures me like no other. MMMMMM
