As a 30th anniversary tribute to Terracotta bronzing powder, Guerlain's in -house perfumer Thierry Wasser has interpreted the legendary powder as a sun soaked invitation fragrance. An iresistible and sensual composition, lush and rich that makes you dream of a hot summer vacation in the South of France or on a beautiful exotic beach.
I absolutely love the Guerlain Terracotta Bronzer and the Terracotta Jolie Teint Foundation and this was the beginning of my obsession with this summer fragrance, Guerlain Terracotta Le Parfum.
Terracota Le Parfum was launched in 2014 and it's limited edition but you can still buy it, if you are lucky to find it on stock. I have been hunting for this for almost 2 summers and now it's finally mine!
It's warm, sweet, slightly powdery and extremely sensual. The composition has solar floral notes (white flowers and yellow flowers). It opens up with fresh accords of bergamot, coconut and tiare flower. It's heart includes white flowers such as jasmine, ylang-ylang and orange blossom laid on a seductive base of musk and vanilla.
The silage is soft to moderate, and the perfume lasts around 6 hours on my dry skin and in like forever on my clothes. It develops beautiful, and it wears insanely sensual when is really warm weather! The coconut is there but you won't feel it, it won't come from nowhere to punch you in the face and give you a horrible headache. The Jasmin is lovely, it smells like the real flower, nothing cheap or fake about it!
For some reason Terracota Le Parfum it reminds me of Nuxe Prodigieuse Le Parfume but more sophisticated.
Guerlain Le Parfum is definitely a solar fragrance that match my personality, I can never get bored of it !
Thierry Wasser describes his creation as "the allure of the sun in a bottle" and these are indeed the perfect words to describe Terracotta Le Parfum.
