Quand vient l'été is a perfume that could be resuscitated, a perfect vintage floral other than rose-jasmin-violet variations and different from the usual Guerlain range. A true Belle Epoque perfume!
Top fresh spicy note with citrus notes (and neroli), rosewood, clove, wintergreen
Middle floral bouquet of ylang and carnation with notes of lilac, hyacinth, jasmine absolute, rose oil
Drydown sweet and musky with: heliotrope, vanilla, balsams, orris, amber, musk
Salycilates are unusual and highly versatile ingredients. You can build with them a hyacinth, a carnation, a Madonna lily, a clover, an old orchid, a fougère - Canoe type …a cocoa note and so on. They bring breath and "make space" in a perfume.
