Guerlain has launched Idylle Duet Jasmin-Lilas, the second in the series that began with last year's Idylle Duet, which focused on rose and patchouli. Both fragrances are flankers to the original Guerlain Idylle, which launched in 2009.
Idylle Duet Jasmin-Lilas was developed by Guerlain house perfumer Thierry Wasser; in addition to the flowers in the name, the notes for the chypre floral perfume include rose and woody musk.
Guerlain Idylle Duet Jasmin-Lilas is available in 50 ml Eau de Parfum, and can be found now at Marionnaud in France.
I am definitely going to try this one. Anything with jasmine for me!
It sounds nice.
Hope this will make it to the U.S. soon – it does sound pretty!
I doubt I’ll ever see it, but it’s tempting.
gorgeous bottle! I would like to try all of them. I like Guerlain.
I like Guerlain too, but admit I’m not going to die if I never see this. Just as well since I probably won’t
Shockingly, I have never even managed to try Idylle. It isn’t in the Guerlain boutique, so I just forget about it. I’ll have to put these a bit more on my radar, me being a big Guerlie-girl and all.
It’s pretty, but not a huge deal IMHO.
Guerlie-Girl – I love it! I’m also a Guerlie-Girl and I’ve never really tried Idylle either. I know I have some samples around here but it’s just never been on my radar, either.
Where is this going to be sold in the US? I haven’t seen last one’s rose one anywhere.
Don’t know…maybe try Bergdorf Goodman, or one of the Guerlain boutiques.
All these Guerlain flankers are starting to Idylle my brain. I don’t think I have caught up with Duet yet!
Loving “starting to Idylle my brain”!
This one looks lovely as well. I don’t think Duet even made it to the States, regretably. I like the original. It reminds me a bit of NR for Her in the EDP concentration, and all the flankers look intriguing, too. Not what I’d think of as traditionally Guerlain, but well made and pretty.
Well I had a quick sniff…smells like idylle but the jasmin is there…I liked it…will go back to try it on the skin next week! Duet to me had some lovely patchouli moments….but faded into meeeh and bland quite quickly for me. This may be the case with the new one! I was wearing teint de neige body oil that day and also got the oppertunity to spray the new MYRRH….I was blown away for the first hour…thereafter all I got was powder… and that powdery….reminded me of a certain time when I wear chanel 22. All that being said…the amazing teint de neige body oil could have had something to do with it. I will definitely definitely retry it.
I got some discounted Idylle Eau Sublime from ebay after reading Octavian’s review. I’ve never smelled the original Idylle, but this is a very lovely soft rose with a dewey sheen of hedione. It’s very pretty and easy to wear. Not what I think of as “me,” but this unseasonably warm winter is making me do strange things!
I rather like Idylle eau de toilette, though it is borderline too much patchouli for me…
What I first thought when I saw this was, “What, a sixth-generation flanker? Idylle doesn’t have enough stature for that.”
Mals, you just said the magic word. I think a little more patch would make Idylle even better and am putting the edt on my ‘must try’ list. I didn’t know it was doing well enough to have so many flankers, either, but apparently it is. Yay since I like it so much.
Beautiful flacon, but I do not “get” this fragrance at all, may be anosmic to some of the notes as it usually happens when coming across a floral.
Still, experience proved that no flanker is to be dismissed. When Givenchy launched Ange ou Demon: Le Secret, I could not get the logic behind their decision, as it was so different from the original Ange ou Demon. Nor did I get the fragrance, although it projected beautifully on a friend of mine. Ange ou Etrange was equally baffling. But lo and behold, Ange ou Demon Le Secret Elixir (can these names get any longer?) is just about perfect. I get so many compliments i just call him “Givenchy” as I can’t be bothered to say its name 20 times a day.
Give flankers a chance everyone, you may yet be surprised!
Your comment about the names makes me smile! I have a bottle of Ange ou Demon Le Secret, and I really wish I had a nick-name for it! It drives me a little crazy every time I have to tell someone what I’m wearing!
I agree with you “give the flankers a chance” you never know, I just bought Hermes Voyage and love it, I feel the need to check out the new flanker…and I get way too many compliments when I wear Demon Le Sectret, the second flanker I think..(a Christmas gift) I also need to try this one though I haven’t tried the original Idylle.
The bottle… why does that particular style of bottle always remind me of a diagram (in this case, upside-down) of either the bladder+urethra or most of the female reproductive system. I think I need mental help?
Yes, it is that step right before “sloughing” the uterine lining in menstruation! (Ugh! Gross, but funny!)
