Mainstream Monday: Sniffing a Popular Perfume

Even though Guerlain hasn’t launched anything that has interested me in years, I still get excited when they have a launch. I used to consider myself a Guerlain Gal but throughout the years my focus has shifted into Chanel territory (because Chanel has been launching things I’m more likely to wear).

Ava Gardner with Guerlain

 

Years ago (2008), Guerlain made a limited edition perfume to celebrate their anniversary AND to celebrate their customers that spent like a bazillion dollars with them. OK, maybe not a bazallion dollars but their loyal customers that probably do spend a lot. It was a non-commercial perfume that was a gift to loyal customers and industry insiders. One of my friends was one of these folks (actually a few were, but she’s the one that shared a small sample with me).
