Mayotte Fragrance Reviews


I love the bottle and smells, the only sad..thing is I don't feel it after 5-7 min I have on myself...maybe people around do ....Love all of Guerlain


With great anticipation, I tried this at Saks today. Meh. It was nice, but I like Mahora better. Mayotte is more refined, but no staying power. It didn't last much past an hour or so. No one part of it stands out. Mahora is much more interesting, complex and intense, and lasting. I was never a Guerlain fan and Mahora was the first Guerlain scent I liked. After wearing Mahora, I learned to appreciate Shalimar and Samsara. But chances are I won't buy them.


Mayotte is the re-edition of Mahora according to blogger Perfume Shrine. And it's named after the island where Jean-Paul Guerlain has his Ylang Ylang plantations. Mahora was an unfortunate flop probably due to the impolite associations the name had in english speaking peoples minds according to her. So I guess that if you alredy know Mahora you don't need to get aquainted with Mayotte.


OK, I "like" Mayotte, but for what I paid, I should love it. The smell is lovely, but I become anosmic to it in minutes it seems. Can't smell it on my wrist at all, but it lingers under my shirt. Unfortunately, sticking one's nose down the neck of one's own top to get a sniff would be considered horrendously bad manners.

I got the "bee bottle" with no atomizer, along with a "complimentary" refillable purse spray bottle. I find dabbing some straight from the bottle onto a half a wad of cotton and tucking it into my bra does give the fragrance a little more presence.

Lesson learned: stay away from those scary sales assocs at Bergdorf's, and get a decant of anything pricey from The Perfumed Court and live with it for a few days before deciding on a purchase.

In some ways, Mayotte reminds me of Panthére de cartier, tho a bit creamier, plus PdC has better sillage and staying power. Maybe I'll layer and see what happens.

Follow-up: My nose seems to be getting educated (I love tuberose!) so I can detect this tropical floral on me for hours now. Summer's coming and this will fit in with my floral dresses.
