Eau de Guerlain 

Eau de Guerlain (Guerlain 1974) is fresh lemon with stunning hints of crisp green basil and mint. Then there’s the comforting and lovely depth of neroli, rose, carnation combined with sandalwood and patchouli. But it’s primarily a refreshing scent without being cold in the slightest. And were it not for supple notes like oakmoss, amber and gentle musk at the base it’s almost reminiscent of Guerlain’s more recent Herba Fresca. However, I prefer Eau de Guerlain. Unequivocally.

Top notes:  fruity notes, basil, bergamot, and lemon.   Middle notes: caraway, carnation, sandalwood, patchouli, lavender, jasmine, mint, bergamot, and rose.  Base notes: amber, musk, oakmoss, and neroli.

Nose: Jean Claude Guerlain
