I love Guerlain perfumes. I love that they have something for everyone, that they keep the classic legends (like Jicky and Apres L’Ondee) but also keep it modern. They go from heavy to soft and everything in between. I tend to fall hard for the more rare of their offerings so I was happy to see that my latest hard to find love is now in their Parisiennes Collection. It’s Guerlain Cherry Blossom – lovely light and eminently wearable cherry blossom and green tea perfume. I have the older bottle design, pre-Parisiennes, but will rbe getting a bee bottle soon. Guerlain has been re-releasing then discontinuing perfumes at an alarming rate lately so I dont want to miss out!
You know- perfume doesn’t always have to groundbreaking. It doesn’t always have to make you squeal or gasp in shocked delight. Sometimes, we just our perfume to smell good….to smell pretty. Guerlain describes the notes as green tea, bergamot, red berries, lilac and jasmine with some powdery notes in the base. And you know what? It smells really pretty. I love it, and find it calming, soothing and as easy to wear as a soft white t shirt. Guerlain scents are so brilliant in that they adapt to the environment. Guerlain Cherry Blossom smells fresh, calming & clean in the heat, and smells gently floral and soothing in cooler weather. It is one of my favoured bed time perfumes. Must be the green tea- always a lovely perfume note. But the sweetness of the cherries balanced with the florals and citrus notes make this just right. Verdict? Love.
UPDATE: Guerlain has discontinued Cherry Blossom – get it while you can!
Guerlain Cherry Blossom is part of the Guerlain Les Parisiennes line, available at Guerlain Boutiques and some select Guerlain counters, at around $270 for a 125ml bottle. If you are lucky, you may find an older bottle like mine online. It’s just so cute.
