Guerlain Encens Mythique D` Orient Perfume Review

In 2012 Guerlain came up with their spell bounding Desert collection. Exclusively destined for the UAE it has now expanded its distribution into their Paris flagship store.

The collection consists of three fragrances inspired by Arabic perfumery, but I'm glad to say one cannot miss out the very French element in these perfumes hence making them a beautiful fusion between the Eat and the West.

These three magical concoctions are called. Rose Nacree Du Desert, Encens Mythique D' Orient and Songe D' Un Bois D' Ete'. 


Even though all three are works of art, Encens Mythique was love at first sniff. The sensory experience was a first for me. I finally know what real ambergris smells like.
The notes consists of neroli, moss, incense, saffron, Persian rose, Ambergris mixed into the blend are also aldehydes and patchouli, which gives this perfume a distinct French character thus saving it from becoming another one of those Arabic, oriental inspired perfumes that are all the rage these days. 
 It opens with a blast of  sweet powdery smokiness with a hint of woody notes and then melts together into something soft and inviting with a strong salty ambergris mixed in with saffron. 
It's like walking in a desert with it's earthy sweet scent, and from faraway you can catch whiffs of salty air, so you know you are not too far away from the sea.
The longevity and sillage are outstanding. A precious gem of a perfume to be used on occasions when you want to stand out from the crowd of sweet fruity gourmands.
TOP NOTES: Persian Rose, Aldehydes, Saffron
MIDDLE NOTES: Pink Pepper, Moss, Patchouli
BASE NOTES: Woody Notes, Incense, Ambergris
