Candide Effluve Fragrance Reviews


Sadly, I've only had the pleasure of smelling this fragrance a handful of times but that's all I needed to fall in love with it. I sincerely believe that Guerlain succeeded in creating a beautifully bright and exotic oriental scent which likely became the concept of the much stronger and heavier Samsara fragrance. The difference being that the orris root isn't nearly as noticeable and doesn't have the other heavy notes needed to make it strong enough to greatly overpower this fragrance's velvety sweet, clean citrus and gentle floral notes. Having smelled this, it seems that the orris root, musk and bergamont create the dark and heavy scent I personally dislike, and others find appealing, in Samsara. The stars of this show are the crisp citrus, soft jasmine and exotic ylang ylang. They're greatly complimented by the light summer smell of sweet blooming heliotrope, sugary benzoine and that wonderful tonka bean. It's a brilliantly sophisticated fragrance, the notes play off of one another to create a multifaceted ever-changing scent. It's also one of the few true Guerlain originals that doesn't immediately slap you with bergamont or vetiver and contains no musk.(all of which I actually love in moderation) The heady notes of the bergamont, vetiver and amber do a great job of contrasting with, and then carrying, the lilac into the top notes. This makes them all obvious ingredients yet they somehow they prevent one another from drowning the softer notes out by mixing together and becoming a fragrance of their own. It's a shame that it's not still in production, I'd happily wear it daily.


I'm going to see if I can acquire this. Sounds wonderful, and I love the House of Guerlain. This is my first time seeing this also Sherihan.

Edit: Just found out it was sold at B. Goodman but limited. So we are out :(
