While it's not technically considered a gourmand fragrance the combination of the vanilla and sandalwood turn into a kind of caramel candy scent on me so I'm a fan!
The scent has a glamour to it that speaks for itself but to make it even more elegant, it comes in the iconic Guerlain quadrilobe bottle - understated, simple and graphic - the perfect home for a scent that pays homage to contemporary femininity.
I was very fortunate to get a chance to sit down and have a quick chat with Guerlain Exclusive Perfumer, Thierry Wasser, the creator of many great fragrances including Mon Guerlain and my particular favourite, La Petite Robe Noir Eau Fraiche. What he told me which was very interesting to me was he actually goes to all of the places where the raw ingredients for his fragrances come from - be it India for the Sambac jasmine or Papua New Guinea for the Tahitensis vanilla and personally meets with the people who grow, pick, extract and distill the ingredients to build relationships and make sure he knows every detail of the ingredients!
Mon Guerlain is available now across Canada including at Hudson's Bay, Sephora and sephora.ca.
