Four centuries ago, in India, Emperor Shah Jahan fell hopelessly in love with Princess Mumtaz Mahal. He had the enchanting Gardens of Shalimar built for her and dedicated the Taj Mahal to her as well, one of the seven new wonders of the world. This incredible tale sparked the imagination of Jacques Guerlain, who created Shalimar, the first oriental fragrance in history, in 1925.

Now Maison Guerlain is delighting its wearers with one more thrilling and exciting new perfume, Shalimar Souffle de Parfum 2017. This year, Guerlain has impressed me much with amazing, sensual and truly distinctive perfumes. I adore Guerlain perfumes as they are pungent and intense – they leave behind a unique luxurious aroma. Shalimar Souffle de Parfum 2017 by Guerlain is created by famous in-house perfumer Thierry Wasser as a fresh, sweet and powerful perfume inspired by gorgeous Indian peacock.

Shalimar Souffle de Parfum unveils fresh and light citrus note of bergamot, lemon and mandarin. The luminous heart gives way to an armful of jasmine Sambac from India combined with an unprecedented orange blossom water absolute note.
Deep inside, the vanilla from India and Tahiti exalts a delicate sensuality, whereas the overdose of white musk reveals its addictive and cocooning facet.

Top notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Mandarin
Heart notes: Jasmin, Indian jasmine sambac
Base notes: Vanilla, White musk

To emphasize and give to the orange blossom its honeyed notes, Thierry Wasser used orange blossom water absolute. This absolute is the result of a very specific process. First step, distillation, to obtain the orange blossom water, then, extraction, to collect the precious absolute. This powerful absolute accentuate the floral trail of the fragrance.

Lui, Guerlain’s new scent feminine and masculine at once

Guerlain-Liu1

Guerlain LUI. A famous fragrance in perfume history. Because of the unique scent, and because of the unique bottle.

Now Maison Guerlain is launching a new perfume version of LUI, which will satisfy both men and women. From French language, LUI means she/his.

Feminine. Masculine. Why choose? LUI is a perfume that loves to stir up trouble. Neither totally feminine nor truly masculine, it is both at once. Guerlain is inspired by a generation that is free from the norms of the genre, and has the idea of a decidedly universal perfume.

Guerlain LUI is announced as a floral, woody and spicy scent. The creation is signed by the perfume duo of Thierry Wasser and Delphine Jelk. The two of them wanted to surprise with an unexpected scent that mixes genres and creates a new one; LUI strives to be ambivalent and complex, but unique and singular in its “alchemy” that is revealed on the skin.

Top notes: pear, clove
Heart: benzoin, carnation
Base: leather, vanilla, musk, smoke

The composition focuses on an accord of benzoin, in its complexity and its different facets. It opens with pear, cloves along with benzoin and spicy carnation notes. The base calms on a woody layer made of leather, vanilla, musk and smokey leather.

 

LUI - Guerlain's New Scent Feminine And Masculine At Once

 

The beautiful Art Deco bottle is elegant, black and lacquered, reminiscent of a Chinese tea box from the 18th century. It relies on the aesthetics of the Guerlain legacy and lends the style and anagram of the name of the floral-aldehyde fragrance LUI, which was created by Jacques Guerlain in 1929.

Guerlain LUI is available as 50ml Eau de Parfum.

Guerlain Terracotta

 

TERR16-500-1024x668

In the 1980s, tanned skin was seen as a sign of idleness and abandon, but also of action, success and a relaxed nature. A healthy glow was synonymous with all the pleasure of living. It evoked sunshine, space, freedom and sensuality. By observing the reflections of the sun’s rays on the desert dunes, an idea was born: to bring together the sky and the earth, the sun and the sand.

From the earth, Guerlain Terracotta borrowed its warm and ochre tones. From the sun, it borrowed its golden rays as they shimmer on the joyful ripples of the desert. Close your eyes, breathe in the delicate scent of ylang-ylang, and take your senses on a journey….

TERR16-502A

Guerlain Terracotta. A unique, vèry fine and silky texture. A distinctive scent, like no other. An ultra-natural result, able to reproduce every nuance and intensity of a tan on th skin. From the moment it was launched, in 1984, Guerlain Terracotta immediately became a beauty essential, a must-have for many make-up artists and women around the world..

Often copied but never equalled, and enriched with a moisturising agent, the Terracotta formula doesn’t dry the skin and provides (vèry) long-lasting comfort. Its success has never faltered. Somewhere in the world, a Terracotta product is sold every… twenty-five seconds! Its name has become synonymous with bronzing powder, with an instant tan, and has slipped into everyday language. Incredibly easy to apply, for a perfectly natural make-up result, Terracotta reveals all the glory of a sun-kissed, healthy glow. Beauty enhancing, sheer, luxurious and gentle, true to values dear to Guerlain, it creates a stunning complexion.

00 CLAIR – BLONDES.jpg

02 NATUREL – BLONDES

03 NATUREL – BRUNETTESTerracotta, Guerlain’s legendary ‘Holy Grail’ bronzing powder. A sunny motif marked with the double G (more colors availble).

The palette of Terracotta shades is evolving. The shade 00 Clair Blondes is particularly suitable for very fair skin, while 04 Moyen Blondes, with its rosy hue, is ideal for blondes who already have a tan, to heighten their golden glow. The shade 07 Foncé Doré is beautiful on mixed-race skin, while 09 Intense gives a glow to darker skin tones.

I love the texture and colours very much. You may apply Terracotta with a thick brush alone or after your foundation, by sweeping a light veil all over the face in a 3-shape on the right side of the face and a mirrored 3 on the left side. It gives a healthy, but very natural color. It’s also perfect as a blusher, or even eyeshadow.

The Terracotta collection also features a Guerlain Terracotta brush, the Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint, a healthy glow fluid foundation. And: the Terracotta Perfume 

Guerlain Terracotta, the fragrance,

This is the third fragrance of this collection, following Voile d’Été (1999) and Eau Sous le Vent (2009).

Guerlain Terracotta Le Parfum

Terracotta Le Parfum – The Allure of the Sun, in a Bottle

Guerlain’s in-house perfumer Thierry Wasser interprets the legendary powder as a fragrance. An irresistibly sensual composition, exotic and luminous, inspired by the radiant realm of Terracotta.

The fragrance’s intricate harmony opens on captivatingly fresh notes of bergamot, before developing into a heart of tiaré flower and ylang – ylang. One of Guerlain’s emblematic ingredients, ylang – ylang infuses scents with its warmth. Its sweet, sensual signature finally reveals a delicious vanilla-tinged dry-down. Leaving now for an exotic paradise… and the promise of voluptuous sensations.

The composition comprises of solar floral tones. It opens with accords of bergamot, coconut and tiare flower. Its heart includes white florals such as jasmine, ylang-ylang and orange blossom, laid on the sultry base of musk and vanilla.

Enriched with a moisturising agent, so the Terracotta formula doesn’t dry the skin ot hair and provides long-lasting comfort.
