Guerlain has launched Quand Vient La Pluie, a new fragrance developed by perfumer Thierry Wasser in collaboration with Sylvaine Delacourte. Inspired by the smell of nature after the rain, the scent includes notes of heliotrope, violet, rosemary, sambac jasmine, and "un soupçon" of praline.
The bottle, by Serge Mansau, is shaped like a raindrop and rests on a "base etched with the veins of a leaf" and holds 7.5 ml. A 50 ml refill bottle is included in the €280 price. The luxury, limited edition version is €1800, and includes Swarovski crystals and a 490 ml refill bottle. (image and first quote via aufeminin, second quote and additional information via osmoz)
