Guerlain Apre L’Ondee

Item Description

Guerlain Apre L’Ondee

Top Notes: Aniseed, Hesperidic notes, Rose
Middle Notes: Violet, Hawthorn
Base Notes: Iris root

It begins with a powdery iris and anise with some floral. If the rose is there it’s very much in the background. The violet appears but the sweetness is subdued by the powdery iris note. I think this can be gotten away with by men even though it is marketed for women. It’s very understated compared to Bois de Violette and stays close to the skin but blooms out beautifully in the dry down. You may have to spray on more to your desired effect. It evokes a scent of outdoors. It’s like Habit Rouge was mated with Green Irish Tweed and all the wood and leather was removed. This is the best violet I’ve smelled other than Green Irish Tweed. The sillage is okay and longevity typical of Guerlain. It’s like a powdery violet (GIT style) after the rain and definitely smells old like Habit Rouge or Acqua di Parma because of the powder and possibly the Hawthorn. I think this will be my first purchase of an exclusively feminine targeted fragrance. For anyone who likes Green Irish Tweed they should try this one. It's does have the effect of sending you back in time 100 years.
