Perfume Review – Guerlain Les Quatre Saisons Collection for women
In the spring of 2008, Guerlain presented a luxurious exclusive collection of “Les Quatre Saisons”, which included four women’s fragrances: Brume d’Autoumne, Muguet de Printemps, Quant Vient L’Ete, Winter Delice. The release of the series was timed to coincide with the 180th anniversary of the House of Guerlain, one of the oldest perfume brands founded by Pierre Francois Pascal Guerlain in 1828.
Inspired by the musical cycle “Four Seasons” by Antonio Vivaldi, each of the fragrances corresponds to one season of the year. The collection “Four Seasons” has united three previously published fragrances and the novelty of Brume d’Autoumne. All the spirits were composed by Jean-Paul Guerlain.
Les Quatre Saisons – Brume d’Autoumne (Autumn Fog)
Perfume Brume d’Autoumne de Guerlain – sensual and melodic woody-aromatic with floral notes aroma, embodying the transition from summer to autumn. The composition is opened with rosemary, coriander, pink pepper; patchouli, ylang-ylang, Bulgarian rose, wormwood (in “heart”), and at the base a softwood chord of sandalwood and vetiver.
Les Quatre Saisons – Muguet de Printemps (“Spring Lilies”)
Perfume Muguet de Printemps de Guerlain is a spring floral fragrance, the composition of which is built on the refreshing fragrance of lilies of the valley, surrounded by the harmonies of lilac, jasmine, bergamot and rose. “Muguet” is the unique tradition of the company Gerlen, every year on May 12, celebrating the arrival of spring by selling this tender and romantic fragrance.
Les Quatre Saisons – Quant Vient L’Ete (“When the Summer Comes”)
Perfume Quant Vient L’Ete de Guerlain – a refined floral interpretation of the summer. According to the creator, the fragrance was inspired by the yellow fields of the vineyards, warmed by the sun. The structure of Quant Vient L’Ete includes notes of mint, lemon, rose, white lily, jasmine, ylang-ylang, spicy carnation, iris and vanilla, so accurately conveys the transition from the morning chill to the scorching heat of the midday hours.
Les Quatre Saisons – Winter Delice (“winter treat”)
Perfume Winter Delice de Guerlain – a rich oriental-spicy flavor, embodying the fabulous “Christmas atmosphere.” In 2005, the perfume was released in the line “Aqua Allegoria”. The sweet harmony “Winter Delice” is built on notes of gingerbread, thin beans, Norwegian pine, dog rose, Somali incense and wormwood.
Exclusive “Les Quatre Saisons” collection was housed in a luxurious, black leather case. All aromas were presented in crystal bottles of “Bakkara” (each 35 ml) with a cap in the form of an inverted heart and, made by hand, engraved with the image of the corresponding perfume composition of the season.
