Happy March, dear Posse folks!! Weather and an unexpected speed bump in my life have conspired to keep me from sniffing anything new (or old) to share. So I’m pulling out an oldie-goldie feature that I’ve run before. Once in a while, it’s fun to play those “what if?” games. So for today: What if a generous perfume fairy godmother showed up on your doorstep and offered to give you three bottles of scent. The only catch? All three have to be from the same house.
Today, let’s play with Guerlain, shall we?
Right off the bat, I know I (and many of you) would have to request vintage Mitsouko parfum, pretty please, Fairy Godmother. This Guerlain grande dame has been a fragrance pillar for ages and ages, and its gorgeous, powerful, take-no-prisoners vibe (waves to Musette) is addictive and timeless.
My other choices reflect more recent scents of the house. Iris Ganache, although sadly discontinued, continues to be a favorite of mine with its delicate floral and white chocolate-y goodness. I have a decent decant and I swoon every time I use it. My third choice is a dead heat between the haunting sweetness of Attrape Couer/Guet Apens and the deep, dark delights of incense-rich Encens Mythique d’ Orient. But since I’m getting enough dessert from Iris Ganache, I’ll have to go with the Mythique.
So what about you? What three scents from Guerlain would request from the perfume fairy godmother?
