I was flicking through a magazine and a perfume sample called Mon Guerlain Eau De Parfum caught my eye. Usually I have a love hate relationship with perfume samples because I find the scent ( once opened ) to be overpowering. However this sample was different, there was something sophisticated about the scent and without hesitation I bought it.

The description: Mon Guerlain, the House’s new fragrance, is a tribute to today’s femininity a strong, free and sensual femininity, as inspired by Angelina Jolie.

Ingredients: A fresh oriental fragrance with Lavender from Provence, Sambac Jasmine from India, Sandalwood from Australia and Vanilla Tahitensis from Papua New Guinea. These lovely ingredients make for an intriguing composition, which is very feminine and sophisticated but never over powering

The Scent:

Mon Guerlain opens with a quick burst of sweet citrus (although the official perfume description has no mentioning of any citrus notes I could still detect it ) the scent transforms into a vanilla burst I can detect a little jasmine but the predominant scent is vanilla, which is very rich and very warm. The perfume is concentrated and the sillage is impressive to an extent but didn’t last long and I had to top it up


The Top Notes: Carla lavender

Heart Notes: Sambac jasmine

Base Notes: Vanilla tahitensis, album sandalwood

The Bottle

The bottle is very stylish and feminine. Mon Guerlain is housed in a clean, angular glass bottle adorned with a clear crystalline “quadrilobe” cap. The perfume liquid is tinted a rosy hue and the Guerlain brand name is etched near the base.


If you don’t like vanilla steer clear of this scent.

The scent in my opinion doesn’t last long and you may have to top up. Because of this issue I won’t purchase this product again.


Because I had beauty points on my Debenhams beauty card I paid half of the retail price of £44 quite a bargain!
