New Perfumes from Guerlain in 2017

The beginning of the year was impressive with Guerlain. The most discussed topic was the brand's collaboration with Hollywood actress and UNESCO goodwill ambassador Angelina Jolie, who became the face of the new fragrance called Mon Guerlain! But besides the announcement for this collaboration and the revealing of the details for the Mon Guerlain launch, there was a lot of other fragrant news at the French House.  

 

MON GUERLAIN

The Mon Guerlain announcement appeared in mid-January when it was said that Angelina Jolie will present this fragrance. But not many other details were known: neither bottle design, nor olfactive pyramid. Guerlain used its classical quadrilobe bottle (that appeared at the beginning of the XXth century with Rue de la Paix 1908 and Kadine 1911, and later used for Jicky, Liu, and Quand Vient Le Vent, for example and for many different limited editions and exclusive collections like Colour Collection Flacon Quadrilobé or Les Quatres Saisons), but this info arrived later. Several notes were listed, with lavender and vanilla among them; up to now many people considered Mon Guerlain to be similar (or even kind of a flanker) for the Mon Exclusif fragrance that was discontinued just after the Mon Guerlain announcement. But with so many similarities like name, color of the liquid, notes listed and the concept (yes, the Mon Guerlain bottle, like Mon Exclusif, lacks a label and can be customized), this guess doesn't look strange, though we didn't see an official confirmation or contradiction. Those who have tried Mon Guerlain, say that it is nearly the same as Mon Exclusif. Though, very soon we will be able to compare.

JOYEUSE TUBÉREUSE

With the hype around Mon Guerlain it was easy to miss another very interesting Guerlain release within L'Art et La Matière line — Joyeuse Tubéreuse. The new fragrance in this collection appeared less than half a year after Néroli Outrenoir. Guerlain continues exploring white flowers and moves from neroli to tuberose.

It's interesting that the perfumer behind the fragrance, with Thierry Wasser, is Delfine Jelk who, though being the co-author of L'Homme Idéal Eau de Parfum, was never officially mentioned by Guerlain. 

Another novelty is the change of the stopper: Joyeuse Tubéreuse is the first in the L'Art et La Matière line crowned with the classical spray and not with a pump. You can try the fresh and vibrant tuberose scent this spring.

BERGAMOTE CALABRIA AND ROSA FIZZ

The Aqua Allegoria line that was launched about twenty years ago finally gets its bergamot — one of the most popular fragrant components and part of the legendary guerlainade. Bergamote Calabria, according to a review by Guerlain fragrances lover Monsieur Guerlain, starts with a bright bergamot note that later changes to a sweet and musky-woody accord with orange and ginger accents.

The second new fragrance in the Aqua Allegoria line traditionally is intended for travel retail. Rosa Fizz will replace Rosa Pop. Those who already tried the novelty, say that Rosa Fizz and Rosa Pop are quite similar - a subtle and gentle floral-fruity fragrance. The main difference here can be a bottle that we will discuss below.

As you can see in the photo above, Rosa Fizz is different from other Aqua Allegoria fragrances with its frosted bottle that copies the bottles from Les Eaux de Rituel collection with the classical Aqua Allegoria feature — a metal "honeycomb" cage on the bottle. 

Line of Les Eaux de Rituel

But Rosa Fizz isn't the only example of such a frosted bottle by Guerlain this year. We have noticed some info that suggests the annual Muguet limited edition this time will be issued in the Les Eaux de Rituel frosted bottle but, of course, with adapted design. 

We are waiting for April 21 when, just for one day, Guerlain's lily of the valley scent will be available in the boutiques. And now we can admire the Muguet 2016 edition!

Muguet 2016 Limited Edition

Other big news from Guerlain is for La Petite Robe Noire fans - the fragrance will get a special 2017 design. This year it will be available in La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette My Cocktail Dress 2017 form that has 15 different versions. To know which one you get is possible only after opening the outer packaging.

I'm curious about the Aqua Allegoria new fragrances.
As usual, I suspect I will be disappointed. But I can't help it.
And for Angelina Jolie, I don't mind, she's beautiful, her face is stunning and I don't see the problem.

I feel a bit sorry for A.Rose123 now, I was angry and perplexed by her comments initially (and suspected she might be a Trump supporter because of her comments, sorry if anyone's offended that I don't like Trump) But I didn't realise I wouldn't be the only one to be annoyed and that lots of people would tell her they're angry, lol! Shall we leave her be now? We can all agree to disagree but stay friends with A.Rose123 and each other <3

I hate this comments section but unfortunately this is the best place to comment about the article:

What is it with the La Petite Robe Noir EDT My Cocktail Dress Can This Name Get Any Longer - Yes It Can - 2017 and the 15 surprise different bottle versions?

It's seriously taking me back to the Happy Meal days where you didn't know which toy you'd get - unless you had the kind of mom who'd yell at the employees until you got the toy you wanted.

Since they think their customers like stickers so much, why not just include all 15 stickers with a blank bottle and let the customer pick? And the customer would have 14 pretty little stickers left over. Because... You know... OMG STICKERS!!!! (This is sarcasm)

Anyway. I feel so uncomfortable posting here.

When Guerlain chose a personality like Ms Jolie for their campaign they asked for heated discussions and controversy.

Maybe this is a publicity gimmick in the worst kind of taste, which would not astonish me at all.

I once adored Guerlain. Now I am desperately waiting for My Exclusive Collection.

Why on earth should A. Rose 123 not publish her/his thoughts about the subject?

@A.Rose123:

I feel so sorry for all the hard experiences you and you family have to go through. However, think that today most treatments are not so agressive, and the surgery has improved very much: and most of the patients have good expectations of recovering.

And now, can we talk again about the Guerlain perfumes, please :)?

Blake.lee, you've spoken for yourself. Readers can see, with their own eyes, how our perspectives differ. By the way, I actually edited my post because I felt I was being too snarky with you initially.

So that's something else that can be added evidence to our two, different perspectives on how to treat other human beings.

@A.Rose123 How disturbing you were ever involved with the post op care of people who seem to hate so much. I personally hope you're really an unstable, liar with a lose grip on reality because I certainly wouldn't want you anywhere near myself or someone I loved during recovery. This is not a controversial treatment plan as far as the experts in the field are concerned. If a woman has had multiple family members die of breast cancer and tests positive for the gene, it's not controversial for her to chose to remove her breasts, it's brave and smart! Maybe you worked with some fringe quacks like yourself if anything you have said has any truth in it.

Regardless of your reasons for posting, you are inappropriate, thoughtless and dense. You have no idea who comes to these boards or what our personal stories might be. We certainly don't come here to be chastised for the medical choices we or our loved ones make. You obviously don't care how you make other people feel and that's a shame. I realize you're an incredible selfish human being but do try to do what doesn't come to you naturally and think of others. Refrain from posting such unpleasant drivel in the future. Start a blog, make a Facebook, but keep it off here.

How did Angelina Jolie make an activist movement out of having her breasts removed? She did knock on doors urging women to have the surgery, she did not ask for a law to be passed, she did not call a press conference rallying for the procedure, etc. Your Grandmother and Grandfather are one case out of millions. She choose the decision that worked for her. How does what she does with her body mess yours up in any way?

As I've mentioned, I've engaged in post op services for these patients and this procedure was highly controversial with the surgeons (and university researchers) I was working with. If this were a personal decision, that's one thing but Jolie made an activist movement out of a controversial procedure and yes, I will speak out against that and it was in the context of Guerlain choosing an ambassador for their brand.

My grandmother went through the loss of a breast at a young age due to cancer and my grandfather suffered the loss of a limb due to an experimental medical procedure that went wrong. I have been active in assistance communities as an adult for those who have suffered from similar experiences, as a result of growing up with this experience. I do not take this subject lightly.

Everyone's getting upset and offended and I didn't mean for this to be a heated dialogue when I first posted, just a personal opinion about Guerlain choosing an ambassador for their fragrance, so I won't continue getting people upset. I'll leave it at this.

I can't even believe I'm reading what I'm reading here. It's so sickening!

Angelina Jolie is not the first women to have her breasts and ovaries removed because she carried a gene for aggressive cancer. Women have been having this surgery ever since the ability to identify the cancer genes. I have a close friend and her mother, grandmother and aunt all died when they reached the age of 42 years old from the same breast cancer. Leaving behind small children who had to watch their mothers die horrible, painful deaths. My friend was tested as an adult and found to have the gene for the cancer. She made the choice, with encouragement from her doctors, to have her breasts removed so she could avoid the near certainty of developing the cancer. Also, so her son would never have to experience the overwhelming grief she did of watching her mother die when she was 12. It was not an easy surgery or recovery. She had breast reconstruction and some complications with it. She endured painful surgeries and long recoveries, but not once has she regretted her choice and her struggles were minor compared to what she watched her mother go through. This was not a choice she made lightly but it was one she made with the support and blessing of her doctors and everyone who loved her. We want her to grow old and live a long life! Angelina Jolie also was able to have this life saving procedure done after she too tested positive for the gene.

Anyone who belittles a woman for making this lifesaving but difficult choice is either heartless or mentally unstable. Especially, in such an inappropriate place as this website.

@LaDameDeNoir You are not the only one. I also love it! Not because I'm a fan of the actress. I think it's a lovely piece of art, this photograph. The classic profile and the edgy tattoos. I love it!

I must be one of the few persons that find the advertising with Angelina Jolie...interesting, with a very stark contrast between her elegant, diva-like profile (in this picture she recalled me somewhat Maria Callas) and her tattoes, while I can see her choosing for being the new Guerlain perfume spokeswoman controversial. And this is not a celebrity fragance: other houses before had chosen famous women to advertise their items, although I do not remmember so much controversy. However, I find the new releases somewhat dissapointing, coming from a house with the prestige and the history that Guerlain has. The Allegoria line is today something doomed to be sold at drugstores; the Muguet is gorgeous, but far away from the reach from most people; the new and so criticized (and not for its smell) Mon Guerlain seems to be a very forgettable fragance; the new La Petite Robe Noire Cocktail Dress, just a cheap gimmick to sold more bottles (it recalls me the stickers that we collect when little girls).

@A.Rose 123:

I think you have a little mess in your ideas. It is not that Angelina has chosen to remove some parts from her body for fashion or because she likes, it is to prevent her to become seriously ill and die from the illness. Can we please be less frivolous concerning such serious diseases? Perhaps the way in which she has given so much publicity to her sickness is not the best, and more with such a radical treatment; but I want to believe she did so to show other women who can have the same illness, or become ill themselves, that they should be brave and that there is more life after, when one is corageous.

My mother had signs of breast cancer last year. They did a biopsy, which is very invasive. She the signs of developing breast cancer. They could have done more testing, more invasive testing, but my mother chose to have the breast where it was developing removed. She was very brave, and as a result in her case, she did not develop breast cancer. There are different cases and reasons for a woman to chose this, and we are not privy to why Angelina Jolie had both her breasts removed. It's no one's business.

...You know surgeons don't just amputate parts of your body if you walk in and ask them to, right? The process involves doctors, genetic counselors, and other professionals following their codes of ethics and making their educated judgments whether this is a wise course of action for each individual woman based on their genetic mutations and family history. There's no epidemic of women suddenly lopping off their breasts for no good reason, as if it were some fashion trend. It's only done if there's a good medical case for it.

So again, they're not your breasts, leave people who are making this difficult life-and-death decision for their health alone, because it is indeed none of your business.

I'm disappointed by how Guerlain keeps relying on silly packaging gimmicks like "put your stickers on the bottle the way you like!" Instead of concentrating on making interesting fragrances. It's a shame for a house with their history to be reduced to this. Who cares about which drawing of a black dress you get? I want a good perfume!

Also...are people really angry at Angelina Jolie, somebody they don't personally know, for not wanting to get cancer, and doing what she can to prevent it? The mind boggles. Not your body, not your life-threatening disease, mind your own business.

First of all, Angelina Jolie will donate her earnings to an undisclosed charity. We don't know where her money will go, but it could very well be UN Refugee Agency or the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative. Both charities are very close to my heart. Nowhere it says she's going to donate her money for people to remove their breasts.

Second of all, if that actually was the case, I see no problem with women removing their breasts if the breasts are trying to kill you, or the risk is great. As a daughter to a very strong mother who beat breast cancer, I wouldn't hesitate to remove mine if I needed to. Anyway, no one is forced to do anything they don't want with their body - if any money was donated to the cause, it would be to help those who voluntarily remove their breasts economically.

We can have different opinions of whether it's appropriate for a prestige brand to collaborate with movie stars, but what most of us would agree on is that it's doing much more good than harm. My view on celebrity perfumes is not nearly as important as the cause and probably huge amount of money going to charity.

Ehh... I don't understand the huge following and fan base of Guerlain -.-
Sure it "used to be" great, but now it's just one money-sucking marketing strategy (gimmicks) after another.

Few precisions.
muguet is not available for one day only. Usually all year at 68 Champs Elysées and few department stored unless it's sold out.
La petite robe noire limited edition in 15 bottles is EDP not EDT.
Muguet 2017 is in the frosted bottle like the eau de lit or eau de cashemire.
Mon exclusif is very similar if not identical to Mon Guerlain. Very sweet driven by the market headed by Lancôme la vie est belle.

(1) Political comments: Go elsewhere with them, hater.
(2) No men's fragrances?
(3) Evgeniya Chudakova should get her own perfume launch.
(4) That Muguet bottle is very handsome!

I love Guerlain. Even the "controversial" recipes that others disliked in mass. (Talking about the men's fragrances.) I liked them. And they have a few that I absolutely LOVE. I think I will wear one tonight to celebrate this article.

Well, I see one cancer that needs to be removed right in the comments. It's been said a million times: do not use the comments section for your own political agenda. If you have issues with a certain celebrity, take it to the forum.

Anyway, I was about to comment about the beautiful perfume bottles but now it's ruined.

A.rose123 - you're upset with Jolie for making a decision about her own body and won't buy a bottle of perfume because she had breasts and ovaries removed, even if you like the aroma? I'd buy a fragrance fronted by a person who supports the great charities she supports much sooner than a fragrance fronted by anti-human, Donald Trump's pretty face.

(Guerlain - please discontinue the horrific Le Petit Robe and bring back Aqua Allegoria Ylang & Vanille!)

Joyeuse Tubereuse sounds appealing, with notes that I could love on paper, at least.

Any brand ambassador they select will be controversial to some. Given a choice, I would prefer not to have any any "celebrity person" marketing a french fragrance, except maybe Catherine Deneuve. :-)

Mon Exclusive behaved badly on my skin so if Mon Guerlain is of the same ilk, I will be able to save some money there.
