Perfume may accompany every moment of life, but one doesn’t perfume oneself the same way morning and night. Adapting the intensity of scent in function of one’s mood, desires, and circumstance is a veritable ritual, secrets which Guerlain is delighted to share with you here.
Perfume, which is also called an Extract, is the most concentrated and therefore the most faithful version of a perfume. Created to be in osmosis with the skin, an Extract creates a unique alchemy upon contact with the skin and expresses itself differently on every woman. A few drops applied on the inside of the wrists and elbows, at the base of the neck, at the roots of the hair or in the hollow of the décolleté will reveal their presence with the movements of their wearer and the passage of time without ever becoming overpowering.
• EAU DE TOILETTE
Fresher and richer in top notes, Eau de toilette is the indispensable complement to the Extract. Its hold may be more limited in time; nonetheless it possesses a true fragrance trail that may be prolonged with a few drops of perfume. Eau de toilette may be sprayed directly on clothes, hair and skin.
• EAU DE PARFUM
Eau de Parfum is more concentrated than Eau de Toilette, and leaves an exceptional fragrance trail that underscores the presence of the woman who wears it. It is used in the same manner as the Eau de Toilette.
• EAU DE COLOGNE AND EAU FRAÎCHE
Eau de Cologne and Eau Fraîche are the ideal fragrance solution for those who prefer freshness and lightness when it comes to perfume. Apply generously at any time of day, especially in the morning since they assimilate easily with the bathing ritual and prolong its refreshing virtues. Eaux combine in perfect harmony with regular perfume.
• BATH AND BODY LINES
Body milk or cream, bath and shower gel, deodorant and oil are precious complements when it comes to intensifying or prolonging the hold of your favorite perfume.
