Guerlain Mitsouko EDP

Item Description

Top Notes: Bergamot, Rose
Middle Notes: Jasmin, Spices, Peach
Base Notes: Oakmoss, Woody notes


Okay I've taken the plunge. The citrus is pretty obvious and so is the rose (which is similar to the rose on Habit Rouge EDT but stronger). Pretty quickly the middle notes approach with a nice blending of all those notes. The peach gives the floral a slight gourmand reaction. I found it to be pretty quiet in the first couple of minutes but now it keeps drumming on in a good clip with three sprays on my wrist. The florals give it a slightly "fresh bread" smell and the peach/oakmoss combination seems like the core of the scent. It all blends very well. I don't see this particularly being too feminine and I would recommend it to those who like, gourmands, rose scents, citrus and oakmoss. I think this could be suitable anytime of year but personally there is something cosy about it in regards to the spices and would be even better in the winter. The spices really move the scent forward. What suprised me is that it didn't seem as offputting as I expected to be. This is definitely not your Mom's potpourri. It doesn't scream of headache inducing florals but stays close to the skin and is very tasteful. It may seem stronger if you sit in one place collecting wafts of the scent. The true beauty appears in the drydown where the spices meet the woods. Very romantic. :blush: It might turn you on like the mango episode of Seinfeld where George Costanza gets his mojo back after sampling some mango. :wink2:
