Guerlain Apres L'Ondee : A Love Story
21 November 2006
Excerpt: While growing up, the only place I encountered Guerlain was on the pages of the novels I read. The sultry red-haired witch in Mikhail Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita lured unsuspecting women with the promise of “ Guerlain, Chanel No. 5, Mitsouko, Narcisse Noir, evening gowns, cocktail dresses.. .” The fantasies of Ludmila Rutilova from Fyodor Sologub’s Petty Demon ( Melkii Bes ) unfold in the rich fragrance of Guerlain Pao Rosa .
Excerpt: The first accord is reminiscent of a spring garden after a tempestuous May shower as the damp earth, drenched leaves and flowers begin to warm up under the sun. The aura of this fragrance is effervescent, innocent and joyous. But there is a dark timbre to Après l’Ondée as well. It is similar to the moment after the rain is over; the sun is shining, yet the clouds still cast somber shadows upon the landscape.
