Guerlain London (Les Voyages Olfactifs): New Fragrance

Gl

Guerlain is introducing a new fragrance in its Les Voyages Olfactifs Collection. This time, Guerlain travels to London. According to Guerlain, “With its fruity, woody and green floral notes, London transports us to the heart of an ultra-trendy capital that is both eccentric and classic. A rhubarb accord, tangy and vegetal, instantly teases the nose, along with the grapefruit and the bergamot. At the heart of “London”, a duo of roses – the essence and the absolute – is strewn with cardamom and violets, which are interpreted here in a candied version. The light woody base adds a breeze of fantasy, very British, of course.

London includes notes of bergamot, rhubarb, grapefruit, cardamom, rose, violet, vetiver, black tea and white cedar. 100ml, 150 euros. Available from Guerlain boutique and Bergdorf Goodman. Via Bergdorf Goodman.
