Fronted by American actress Angelina Jolie, Mon Guerlain, released in 2017, has become an iconic new scent on the fragrance scene. Almost a year after its launch, the French Maison presents two luxurious limited editions. These feature the original scent but revisit the bottle with special couture editions.

Parisian jeweler Truscelli has put its expertise to work to create two very special prestige bottles featuring clover designs, a signature motif of the Mon Guerlain scent.

The two symbols also feature nine cabochon-cut amethysts, evoking the fragrance’s lavender notes. It takes over three hours of meticulous work to make each piece by hand, a guarantee of uniqueness and unmatched quality.

This spring, French Maison Guerlain launches a new edition of their allready timeless classic Mon Guerlain, but now with more infused-flowers in its composition, Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Florale.

Well, what can I say something when Mon Guerlain has immediately captured my attention and became one of my favorite women’s perfumes. I like this perfume due to its elegant character, floral accords combined with an endless sweet final touch.

Created by Thierry Wasser, Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Florale comes with a fresh and airier composition all about a spring-like version and more flowery-peony infused than the original fragrance. Peony note adds soft and delicate accents to this powdery/gourmand perfume.

I simply adore light pink peonies, they belong to my most loved flowers. But not only in a vase, I also adore them in this perfume composition, a perfectly balanced floral aroma, not too intense yet long-lasting.

Also, it blends floral notes of lavender, jasmine, neroli, iris along with sweet vanilla and sandalwood accord. The new fragrance’ composition resembles much the original perfume with sensual and lovely lavender and citrusy accents, yet ‘those beautiful’ peonies make the whole difference.

Whether it’s the signature dance moves of Michael Jackson, or the environmental activist work of Leonardo di Caprio, Annie Leibowitz knows the unique angle from which to present any star. She admits that she never liked the word ‘celebrity’.

I’ve always been more interested in what they do than who they are. I hope my  photographs reflect that.
