Songe d'un Bois d'Été belongs to Guerlain’s Exclusive Collections, a range of fragrances for aficionados of rare scents, those who appreciate noble raw materials and refinement down to the last detail.
Dark is the night… A deep night that only unveils its radiance through its intensity, adorned with touches of cedar, patchouli and myrrh. Powerful, yet caught between lightness and darkness, and extremely enveloping, Songe d’un Bois d’Eté is a modern interpretation of the concept of exoticism.
The Déserts d’Orient fragrances are housed in simple, streamlined bottles gorgeously illuminated by a shower of gold, like a symbol of riches: a sign of belonging to a world in which this precious material has always been given pride of place. The bottle nests in an amethyst “leather feel” case (that can be turned into a jewellery box as you wish).

Perfumer secrets

The saffron note, specially created by Thierry Wasser for the Déserts d’Orient collection, is subtle and facetted, spicy and leathery, like all Oriental treasures. It is an extremely precious raw material, as these flowers have a very short life span of about 48 hours: an ephemeral treasure.
Ideal for men and women alike.
