Guest Post: Guerlain - Lavande by M.J. Rose

I'm excited to welcome M.J. Rose back to Book Den today as part of her The Book of Lost Fragrances Virtual Book Tour.

M.J. Rose: I've been fascinated with lost fragrances since long before I started writing The Book of Lost Fragrances... since I found a bottle of perfume on my great grandmother's dresser that had belonged to her mother in Russia. Here is one of those lost fragrances that stirs the senses and the imagination... (researched and described with the help of the perfume writer Dimitrios Dimitriadis)


Guerlain created this soliflore in the 1840s... over 170 years ago! It was reprised again in the 1920's but was no longer produced beyond WWII. Anything but a 'typical' Lavender scent, Lavande has a complex backbone of shimmering citruses, lavender, tumbling florals, vetiver and darker, mossy accords. It is distinctly Guerlain in it's approach as more of an 'abstract' of Lavander than a literal interpretation. Its deeply aromatic heart and exceptionally mossy base are unparalleled in modern perfumery, making it a regrettable loss to the annals of perfume history.
