Everyone still remembers the phenomenal release of Guerlain’s L’Homme Idéal. Also, this year Guerlain is setting the scene again by offering us a variation of its star perfume: L’Homme Idéal Eau de Parfum . This one is thought of as a concentrate of ideal designed to reveal the best of each person. Its virile, energizing and sensual facets then promise to seduce more than one and not to leave the female gender unmoved. Gentlemen, you have been warned, The Ideal Man who lies dormant in you is about to be revealed in broad daylight …
A collaboration between Guerlain, Thierry Wasser and Delphine Jelk
Also, this new perfume appears to be a perfect continuation of its predecessors L’Homme Idéal and L’Homme Idéal Cologne. It is therefore logical that it was developed by Thierry Wasser, perfumer who created these two previous essences and official nose of the Guerlain brand. This outstanding worker is the only one who can boast of occupying this position without coming from the Guerlain family. He is a genius in his field and manages to tell stories, convey emotions and show the unexpected in each of his works. He thus brilliantly continues the work of his illustrious predecessors while retaining his very personal signature. Nevertheless, on the occasion of the release of L’Homme Idéal Eau de Parfum. He surrounded himself with the talented Delphine Jelk. This atypical perfumer has the advantage of having a look as open on perfumery as on fashion. Indeed, her school curriculum allowed her to graduate from the Esmod school as well as the Grasse Perfumery Institute. She also admits to particularly appreciating the smell of almonds, an ingredient at the heart of the L’Homme Idéal saga. She then appears to be the ideal collaborator to make this new juice a real olfactory masterpiece.
The concentrated scent of L’Homme Idéal Eau de Parfum
Both then chose to work around three axes. The opening of L’Homme Idéal Eau de Parfum is therefore particularly striking. It combines the zesty and tangy scent of bergamot with spices of character. Likewise, the Bulgarian rose sublimates this biting ensemble with a slightly lemony and honeyed touch of elegance. Then, L’Homme Idéal Eau de Parfum evolves towards a more seductive aspect. Almond releases its gourmet, fruity and powdery aromas. It is matched with the warm sweetness of vanilla as well as the camphoric, waxy and spicy aspect of incense. Finally, L’Homme Idéal Eau de Parfum ends with a more enveloping and creamy trail. Tonka bean is milky and powdery while sandalwood is woody, waxy and smoky at the same time. On the bottle side, L’Homme Idéal Eau de Parfum displays its masculinity through a simple, refined and luxurious aesthetic. Its square shape seems to be fully anchored in the ground. Its originality lies more in the opposition of its transparent front faces and its sides lacquered in a copper brown. The whole is surmounted by an imposing cabochon and its cut sides give it a look somewhat similar to that of the emblematicHabit Rouge de Guerlain from 1955 … Insiders will appreciate the wink!
