Elixir Charnel Floral Romantique Guerlain for women Pictures

The fifth fragrance from the luxurious collection Elixir Charnel by Guerlain, Floral Romantique, joins the other editions in June 2011. The collection, which includes fragrances Gourmand Coquin, Chypre Fatal, Oriental Brulant and Le Boise Torrid, celebrates female sensuality in a special way, capturing its various aspects.

The woody - flowery composition of Floral Romantique, which was created by Thierry Wasser, completely justifies the name it carries. Fresh top notes of mandarin and orange lead to the core of jasmine, ylang-ylang and tiare, with additional accords of lily and carnation. Woody nuances of cedar in the base are combined with smoked tea, chestnut, ambrette and mate.

Floral Romantique comes in the signature Elixir Charnel collection bottle, available as 75 ml Eau de Parfum.

Elixir Charnel Floral Romantique Fragrance Reviews


Love guerlain limited editions however this one challenges me: it is very floral. on first application all i got was a blast of sweet peppery OTT floral, and i wanted to wash it off, however it fades into soft slightly soapy floral with a light spicy undertone. quite pretty but still not for me.


where is the smell? It fades on me within seconds hahahaha


When I tried this I thought "here we go again, another unremarkable white floral that seem to be the mainstay of every perfumery and perfumer these days" and initially, I was right. Generic, stack 'em high sell 'em for as much as they can dare to charge. So I was over it almost immediately.....

Then about two hours later I kept catching a scent in the air that really is rather delicious - clearly I realised it was the back of my hand where I sprayed the perfume and - whilst it remains a white floral, this has developed really nicely and is rather intriguing.

It isn't typical of the Guerlain perfumes I am drawn to - I'm keen on the classics - all the way and through and through, old school - Jicky, Mitsy, vol du nuit, l'h b - you know what I mean... But this, despite the typical mass-produced-for-mass-appeal-catch-all smell is pleasant, summery although not as sophisticated as modern muse or chanel mademoiselle but wearable, bright, clean and obviously as mentioned several times typically a white floral....


This is a spicy floral, nicely done, it is a warm scent, really seductive, high quality ingredients I can tell. Still I wouldn't pay the exorbitant price tag for it, it has a bit of a classic edge, it is in the line of Rouge or Trouble by Boucheron .Thinking of it, it reminds me a bit of Idylle, but they have the same great nose behind their creation.I detect mostly the lily, on some smokey wood notes, subtle though. If you love Guerlain , this is a great scent. It seem to warm up on the skin also.
I still think brunettes can carry it better than blondes, like most Guerlain scents. It is a bit too big, too femme fatale for my taste.


I think this is great. I'm not a huge fan of floral, but of course I had to try this Guerlain. The mandarin and orange is what does it for me.

Opening for me is: Orange, Tea
Then Tea and Jasmine
After that its mostly orange, tea and jasmine w/ a subtle woody (cedar MAYbe?) and then if I really concentrate, lily. I wish the carnation stood out more. It would add a little kick. The tiare feels a little thick.

I'm into spicy orange these days, so this one tripped my trigger. Not sure I'd spring for the entire bottle, considering the price... but I might pop this into my sample purchases on occasion to keep it around.


My favorite of the Elixir Charnels, it is a perfect blend of floral, woods and a beautiful musk. The lasting power is terrific and I find myself sniffing my arm over and over again to get that 'hit' this beauty delivers. Husband loves me to wear it! I have a decant but a full bottle will be on my Christmas wishlist.


This is the first Guerlain from the Elixir line I truely dislike.
It lacks the depth of the other Elixirs and is an ordinary floral .Only the opening is more interesting with prominent notes of lily and jasmine, a little grassy and green.Very fast it turns to soapy musky floral ans stays so until it fades away.
I am very disappointed as I was so eager to test and judging by the notes I expected a better creation.At the same time I am happy I save myself lots of money for a full bottle.So please test before you buy!


I just purchased this perfume at Saks. It is beautiful! It is labeled as a floral, but there is a sensual side to it. It starts out with the orange top note and then the orange wears down and you get the floral notes. Lastly, the musk and holly peak through. It drove me crazy when I wore it to work on Friday. I kept smelling myself, which creeped some people out. However, I am a huge perfume junkie and sniff myself all day, everyday. I highly recommend this fragrance if you want a muti-dimensional floral.
