Sous le Vent was named after some islands around Reunion, the source of beautiful ylang-ylang and vanilla essences used in all Guerlain fragrances. This chypre is rather austere and dry with vanilla and amber without beeing sweet, sticky or creamy. It has some exquisite powderiness ( not the cosmetic one) but that suggested by a delicate granulated sand. It has some Amber83 and a little indolic nuance. I hope to analyse it soon on my skin and give a detailed review.
