THE VERDICT:

When I grow up, I wanna be Angelina Jolie. 

I admired her the first time I saw her because of her bright blue eyes, sensual face, and strong yet feminine features; there's something seemingly rebellious yet kind with her beauty. I still admire her up to this day and even more so when I learned that she is heavily invested in humanitarian missions and efforts across the world, particularly in Asia. I know there have been polarizing news about her, but with that face and heart of gold, I just can't seem to dislike her. And when I learned that one of my favorite luxury brands has partnered with Angelina and released a fragrance inspired by her, you can bet that I'm one of the first people who was ecstatic about it!


When Guerlain met with Angelina while shooting for a new film, they conversed with her and immediately, signed her up as an ambassador. Upon signing, Guerlain created a fragrance inspired by their admiration for Angelina Jolie; and Mon Guerlain is just that-a fragrance for the woman we admire.


A recreation of the original Mon Guerlain of 1908, Mon Guerlain Eau De Parfum Florale is a new fragrance inspired by the contemporary femininity: free, strong, and sensual. The iconic quadrilobe bottle is an iconic shape and design made by the house of Guerlain: alchemist- inspired bottle with a round stopper to reinforce the shape of the four lobes. A gold ornament is wrapped on the neck of the bottle to add a touch of modern to the look.

Personalized for me by Guerlain Philippines!

Let's delve into the composition of Mon Guerlain Eau De Parfume Florale: I have read that it's a lighter version of its first version, Mon Guerlain Florale:

Top notes start with a strong yet airy Carla Lavender and Bergamot; I know these two are particularly categorized as light- scented fragrance ingredients, but somehow, both notes make a bold opening in the fragrance.

As you journey with the fragrance, the middle notes offer a bouquet of Sambac Jasmine, a signature floral ingredient in Guerlain perfumes. I read that in this particular fragrance, the concentration was increased to give off the heavy flowery ambiance.

Finally, base notes wrap up the fragrance with vanilla and woody notes.

Overall, it is a floral fragrance that's slightly powdery and gourmand; nothing too cloying and too sweet; a bit strong, but completely wearable; it just makes a grand entrance and eventually mellows down. Staying power is very good: a few spritzes will last for about 5-6 hours on me without retouching.

If Mon Guerlain is made for the women we admire, I think of this as a fragrance that will be worn by the woman I want to become: she is wise, gentle, nurturing, confident, and assured. Calm but not submissive. She is carefree and has the biggest heart for service. I'm still a long way from being the complete package, at least I'm on my way there and a whiff of Mon Guerlain Eau De Parfum Florale  will be my constant reminder of my goal.

  1. I haven’t tried any fragrance from Guerlain. But I think I’m gonna like it because it has a powdery scent which I’m a fan of because it brings out my feminity whenever I wear one. Love the bottle! Soooo elegant! Bet ko yung personalized! ❤️

  2. I haven't tried any Gurlain product nor smell any of their perfume. I'm not good in describing perfume notes. I just rely on my nose if it smells good or not, which I don't get any allergic rhinitis reaction. I do like light scented floral perfumes. Btw, the personalize perfume of yours is really amazing as if it was perfumes name on it.
