Meet the Mon Guerlain Fragrance Collection & Its Enchanting New Member: Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Intense

With warmer weather just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about what your signature scent for the sun-drenched months will be. The latest mesmerising addition to the coveted Mon Guerlain family of fragrances, Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Intense, has arrived just in time to brighten up spring days.

The Ultimate Expression of Modern Femininity 

While each of Mon Guerlain scents has been created to express a unique facet of modern femininity, Mon Guerlain Eau De Parfum Intense is a fragrant ode to the free, wild and open spirit of women. It’s an intoxicating fragrance inspired and created for women who are prepared to push the boundaries and take risks – they’re comfortable in their own skin, they forge their own path in the world and above everything, they embrace all the aspects of their femininity. 

Therefore, it seems only fitting that once again Guerlain has turned to cherished actress and human rights activist, Angelina Jolie to bring the new Eau de Parfum Intense to life. Jolie’s personal relationship with the iconic French beauty house spans decades first blossoming with her fond childhood memories of her mothers Guerlain powder.

Throughout her adulthood Jolie has been captivated by France and French culture. Today her passion for Guerlain and its home country comes to life through her Mon Guerlain collaboration that celebrates modern femininity and womanhood. 

The New Guerlain Eau De Parfum Intense Scent

To capture the free, wild and open spirit of womanhood, Guerlain turned to the olfactory talents of master perfumer Thierry Wasser and perfumer Delphine Jelk.  “A play on intensity was an obvious decision,” explains Jelk. “It’s the most Guerlain-like element of Mon Guerlain with its singular, limited approach to ingredients.”

An ancient technique that has been treasured by the house of Guerlain has allowed a mesmerising vanilla tincture to forge the heart of the fragrance. Each and every vanilla pods is sourced directly from Guerlain’s perfume factory in Orphin, located on the outskirts of the Rambouillet forest. From there each pod is prepared, treated and cut into small pieces and soaked in alcohol before being filtered to create a tiny tincture and unparalleled and unforgettable fragrance.

“All the major facets of the original fragrance are accentuated by lavender, patchouli and vanilla Planifolia tincture with its hints of leather, Tahitian vanilla and almond accents which are highlighted by heliotrope. It is this heavy dose of lush vanilla that creates an addictive quality while offering up plenty of elegance and mystery,” explains Jelk.

The Mon Guerlain Family

While the new Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Intense is a tribute to the wild and free spirit of feminity, each scent within the Mon Guerlain family is its own unique ode to the various facets of womanhood. Each scent shines a fragrant new light on the femininity and each scent bares its very own personality.  

Strength and confidence are at the heart of the fresh oriental Mon Guerlain L’Eau de Parfum with notes of with lavender, Sambac jasmine, Indian sandalwood and Tahitian vanilla.
