Reviews of Après L'Ondée Extrait de Parfum by Guerlain

There are 1 reviews of Après L'Ondée Extrait de Parfum by Guerlain.

The opening captivates me right from the start: the neroli stands out, freshened up with bergamot and lemon, but this is not a couture opening as such, as a mix of cassia and anise - the latter very discreet - and a touch of spice and a cinnamon-like undertone. This beginning has an air of refined elegant brightness to it - just delightful.

The base adds a cluster of floral, with a discreet jasmins, soft violet and a fresh iris starting it off; this iris, most interestingly, has no powderiness in it. An unexciting rose pairs with carnation that is the more convincing of these two, whilst an ylang-ylang adds a bit more sweetness - hitherto this was not a particularly sweet affair. Mimosa is added only in a homeopathic dose, but a smooth vetiver shines through now and then.

The base starts off and a slightly musky and ambery benzoin affair, with vanilla and heliotropes adding some depth to it.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.

This lovely scent for spring evenings is special due to its top notes with their beautiful mix of elegance and aroma. The later parts are a bit paler at times, which might reflect the age of my sample; this might have affected also the longevity, which is suboptimal for a perfume. Still, an opus that impressed by the sheer quality of its ingredients. 3.75/5.
