Like a taste of forbidden delights, myrrh casts an enchanting spell with its mysterious notes. Floral, fruity and amber, it reveals its liquorice and smoky facets in turn. The Guerlain perfumer has mastered this rare and precious material and boldly orchestrated a luminous and golden myrrh, a myrrh full of frenzy and whimsy…
The fragrance dresses up in a bottle with clean, contemporary lines, decorated with a golden metal label on the side, like a precious book. It is embellished with an elegant bulb that delivers an unprecedented scent experience in a delicate mist.
Contrasting, luminous, mysterious.
Top notes: grapefruit, pink pepper, black pepper, pear.
Heart notes: rose, iris, myrrh, apricot.
Base notes: frankincense, liquorice, patchouli.
Myrrh is very rarely used in perfumery at all, as successfully taming it is a real feat. Its resin is extracted from a tree that only grows in the arid savannahs of Somalia, Ethiopia and the Arabian peninsula.
For demanding men and women in search of a very facetted and atypical fragrance.
