Parure (Repost)


Parure (Guerlain 1975) is dense and tumultuous green florals laced with bergamot that meet a spicy purple plum. Glamorous rose and jasmine mix with sleek iris and the grounding, enduring oakmoss is heroic. Amber finds patchouli into the drydown.

This is a heady but still springlike scent. Very romantic and very lovely.

Top notes: plum, fruity notes, green notes, bergamot and citruses.   Middle notes: orris root, narcissus, lilac, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley, and rose.  Base notes: oakmoss, patchouli, amber, leather, and spices.

Nose: Jean-Paul Guerlain
