Mon Guerlain by Guerlain, info and impressions

Hello my lovely readers, long time no see. Again my health issues have kept me away from the blog but I am working on fixing them and getting myself better. Moving on to today’s post ever since I heard about the launch of the latest perfume by Guerlain, Mon Guerlain inspired by the well known actress Angelina Jolie, I was curious and intrigued to discover the new perfume. So I waited until it became available and went into stores to try it.


Mon Guerlain, the latest perfume launch, is considered as a tribute to today’s femininity embodying a strong, free and sensual woman, its inspiration coming from Angelina Jolie.

Unfairly known world-wide for her relationship with Brad Pitt and her sold out movies, Angelina Jolie’s most memorable work is all  humanitarian. She has brought under the stoplight the rudimentary working and living conditions of war refugees and visited many international trouble spots with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). She became later a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador. On April 17, 2012, after more than a decade of service as a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, Jolie was promoted to the rank of Special Envoy to High Commissioner António Guterres, the first to take on such a position within the organization.

Jolie has also pushed for legislation to aid child immigrants and other vulnerable children in both the U.S. and developing nations, including the “Unaccompanied Alien Child Protection Act of 2005.” Jolie has also advocated for children’s education, she has co-chaired the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, which provides policy and funding to education programs for children in conflict-affected regions. She was also involved in preserving the human rights and women’s rights.  In January 2011, she established the Jolie Legal Fellowship, a network of lawyers and attorneys who are sponsored to advocate the development of human rights in their countries. In 2015 the Jolie Pitt Dalton Helic organization was founded, a partnership dedicated to women’s rights and international justice, among other causes.

As you can see, Angelina Jolie has supported many important and worthy causes all over the world, and for this I admire her. She is free, strong, independent, a risk taker but at the same time a beautiful woman very aware of her femininity and power of seduction. And yes, this is why I was very intrigued by Mon Guerlain.


Mon Guerlain (described as a fresh oriental) is a mix of contrasts, starting with Tahitensis Vanilla, a favorite raw material for Guerlain, also present in Shalimar, Habit Rouge and Jicky. Next comes Carla Lavender to join the sensual and mysterious Tahitensis Vanilla. The Sambac Jasmine reveals the femininity in us and it is the link that connects the delicious vanilla to the lavender; giving the perfume its finesse. To create the strength of the perfume the Album Sandalwood was added to express the inner riches and resources possessed by all women. It gives the perfume its woody scent that is both feminine and mysterious.

Mon Guerlain comes in an iconic bottle, the quadrilobe bottle being for many years one of the iconic bottles of Guerlain. Today, it expresses the perfume’s contrasts through the strength of its taut lines and the sensuality of its curves; evoking a strong, free and sensual femininity.

I really like its elegant, simple yet chic, feminine bottle. I think it is definitely a collector’s item. It sits perfectly in any boudoir amongst expensive jewelry and accessories. I tried the scent in the store both on the tester paper and on myself. It is clearly a feminine sweet scent but not in a sickly way. It is strong yet not in your face. Discrete but not easily forgettable. It is clearly dedicated to a true woman, secure in her power of seduction and her inner strength. I can see Angelina Jolie wearing it, it suits her personality. On me it lasted for around 4-6 hours.

It is clearly a perfume meant for the modern lady, strong, independent, yet feminine and seductive. Yes, it is different from the classic Guerlain perfumes, it appeals to a broader audience, to a world wide audience, setting it apart from its more limited predecessors. The times are changing and the Guerlain house is also moving on to keep up with the modern world in which we live. Which I think is a good thing. Loved or hated Mon Guerlain is definitely a perfume which will not be forgotten. It is as controversial as its inspiration Angelina Jolie. It is already available in stores so go and check it out for yourself! Mon Guerlain comes in a 100ml bottle at the price of aprox. 625 ron. Tell me Have you tried it ? What are your impressions ? Until next time,   Love, M

      Thank you Cosmin. I am glad you liked my review. Perfume reviews are the hardest for me to write, it is all very subjective. It is a great perfume to gift the special lady in your life. I think she will appreciate it.

  • Singurul Parfum Guerlain pe care il am deja este unul foarte puternic, potrivit pentru sezonul rece, dar care persista chiar si zile intregi pe haine. Deci, m-am convis de calitatea parfumurilor de la acest brand. Cu siguranta si Mon Guerlain e superb!

    • Monica Tone

      Da, Guerlain este un brand cult cu produse de cea mai buna calitate. Mie mi-a placut tot ce am incercat de la ei. Incearca parfumul, cred ca va fi pe placul tau.

  • Bianca

    Dacă au ales-o pe Angelina ca și reprezentantă a parfumului, sigur este un parfum puternic, dar delicat. Nu l-am încercat, dar m-ar tenta deoarece am auzit/citit numai de bine despre acest brand.

    • Monica Tone

      Daca poti, mergi intr-un magazin si incearca parfumul. Cred ca iti va placea

  • nu am incercat pana acum nimic de la guerlain, imi pare o marca inaccesibila mie, dar daca vreodata o sa am ocazia, clar n-o sa o ocolesc!

    • Monica Tone

      Nu trebuie sa cumperi imediat un produs, mergi in magazine incearca-l , vezi cum se comporta pe tenul tau/pielea ta. Au din cand in cand sesiuni de machiaj cu produsele lor, mergi si testeaza. Daca o sa iti placa poate vei economisi sa poti cumpara ceva. si atunci va fi cu atat mai special produsul, un rasfat doar pentru tine 🙂

  • Asta pare genul meu de parfum, mai ales ca am deja cateva parfumuri preferate de la Guerlain! 😀

    • Monica Tone

      Da, este interesant, testeaza-l in magazin. Cred ca iti va placea.

  • vyo vyoleta

    Nu am incercat nimic de la Gueralin, dar ma tentaza sa-l incerc.

    • Monica Tone

      Cu proxima ocazie cand ajungi in magazin joaca-te cu el putin si vezi cum se simte pe piele 🙂
