Idylle, the newest fragrance from Guerlain, has the spontaneity of a caress, it is a light-hearted escapade, a bubble of happiness, a dream of love that continues with Idylle Eau de Toilette.
Even more than in the Eau de Parfum, the composition of the Eau de Toilette highlights the floral bouquet. Rose, naturally, lily-of-the-valley, white lilac, a touch of peony and freesia, and very pure jasmine& An olfactory sextet in which each arpeggio and every flourish can be distinguished.
Nora Arnezeder is the face of Guerlain Idylle posing naked in front of the lens of photographer Paolo Roversi: Guerlain Idyll captures the moment when a woman shows herself at her most simple, barest, at her most fragile, she reveals a moving sensuality while veiled in mystery.
Since 1828, the rose has been the favourite flower of Guerlain perfumers, and Thierry Wasser – Guerlain House Perfumer, perpetuates this passion.
To compose the Idylle Eau de Toilette, Thierry Wasser, went in search of roses, to create the perfect Guerlain rose.Â These voluptuous flowers are selected and blended by Thierry Wasser and Jean-Paul Guerlain in a â€˜â€˜communnelle\’\’, which forms the heart of the Eau de Toilette.
For Thierry Wasser, the scent of Bulgarian rose â€“ also known as Rosa Damascena â€“ is quite exceptional. He loves its “slightly peppery accents of raspberry and lychee”. For the past three hundred years, the Bulgarian rose has opened its thirty petals between Kazanlak, Kalofer and Karlovo. The Bulgarian valleys are filled with meadows of flowers that burst into bloom at dawn from mid May.
Deep pink in colour, the Bulgarian rose owes its intense fragrance to the myriad tiny pores on the surface of its petals.Â At dawn, the flowers are picked by hand, one by one.
