|Guerlain Terracotta Le Parfum - Eau de Toilette 30th Anniversary Edition|
So this perfume (and the older other two perfumes) are supposed to go along with the Terracotta bronzers they release every year. (I've been eyeing this year's bronzer but I can't justify the price sadly and even if i could by the time my birthday rolls around (August 12! I'll be 20 eeek!) it will probably be sold out everywhere :(
Alright! On to the actual perfume review. This perfume is literally 10000% me. Just look at the packaging, there's a gorgeous gold sun imprinted on the box, white with gold lettering, and that is also reflected in the perfume below. You can see on the box it says limited edition, but I'm not sure how long it will be out. Just for summer possibly?
The perfume also embodies the beautiful packaging of the box. A salmony-coraly-pink perfume (pretty sure coraly isn't a word but oh well) and the BEAUTIFUL golden sun. I adore suns on literally anything, if you ask anyone in my family they will all tell you I'm obsessed, I used to even have a dainty little sun necklace but it broke :(
The notes of this perfume are: bergamot, coconut, tiara flower, orange blossom, jasmine, ylang ylang, vanilla, and musk. It is described as
"Thierry Wasser interprets the legendary powder as a fragrance – a sun-soaked invitation to explore faraway lands. An irresistibly sensual composition, exotic and luminous, inspired by the radiant realm of Terracotta."
There will never be enough words to express my love for this perfume. Like I said earlier I will cry when they discontinue it. If you HATE jasmine perfumes, this is probably not the one for you, just putting that out there. But you spray it on and a sweet floral scent opens up and it slowly starts to dry down to a beautiful vanilla that almost smells like a bakery? I'm not sure why.
If you've ever smelled or owned Dior Hypnotic Poison (one of my favorites, in the red tube) thats what the dry down smells like because of the vanilla and musk. But if you like perfumes along the lines of Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, or Miss Dior Cherie, those are the scents that it opens with.
I hope that this description is sufficient but I literally cannot describe the scent, you HAVE to go smell it for yourself. It is literally one of the best smelling perfumes I've ever owned and transitions easily from day to night. In the daytime I just use one spritz on my neck, and then at night I'll spritz my wrists. This perfume has a RIDICULOUSLY long staying power (which is good because it means it will last longer!) but you don't hear me complaining!
