  • Summary: This is my summer scent (the EDT) which is getting harder and harder to find. Top note of violet on me, drying down to a blend of violet and iris. Lasts about 6-8 hours, and there is nothing "calamine" about this scent. Beautiful! Refined... After reading some of these reviews, I am convinced it is all up to individual chemistry.

  • Summary: There is something uncanny about this breathtaking masterpiece. Uncanny (Unheimlich) in the Freudian sense: familiar but foreign; paradoxical; seductively troubling. What I find most disarming about Après l’Ondée, is its balance of sweetness and solemnity. The name signals a degree of separation between the fragrance and the rain. But for me the distance feels spatial rather than temporal, like watching the rain from the warmth of a sumptuous room.

  • Summary: Apres l'Ondée is one of my all-time favourites. My bottle of Apres l'Ondée is about 6 years old- and it is an Eau de toilette spray. (Parfum extrait is no longer available) To me, this scent is a porte-bonheur, evoking the music of Claude Debussy and impressionist paintings...(1906!).

  • Summary: Anybody looking for a light, gentle and heavenly floral fragrance should definitely smell Apres L'Ondée. This "piece of art" from the past century can be considered as one of the greatest, if not the best, creations in its genre. A delicate, almost fragile, composition made of heliotrope, violette and iris that gently touches your skin as a slim and smooth female's hand and sings to your ears a sad but reassuring melody with a faint voice that's almost a whisper.

  • Summary: I have recently been exploring fragrances and trying to branch out from the usual mainstream perfumes. I read an article about this perfume and it really piqued my interest, I was lucky enough to manage to find a sample relatively easily. Well I have to say that this is the most exquisite scent I have ever worn. It is light but complex, delicate but with depth. It is absolutely gorgeous and the first guerlain that I have been able to wear and truly appreciate.

  • Summary: Certain scents are difficult to explain but easily inspire the adjectives "breathtaking" and "heartbreaking." Après L'Ondée is one of these scents. Gaia, the Non-Blonde describes smelling Après L'Ondée in parfum "like entering a dream. It can be familiar, like a memory you can't quite place but you know you've been there, maybe in your subconsciousness." Like any other art form, at its finest perfume can convey a distinct idea or emotion.

  • Summary: An unaulterated masterpiece in the discontinued parfum form and currently available on EBAY! This never happens, if only I had the money for it.

  • Summary: This is the only fragrance I've met that legitimately breaks my heart; it's also--to date--the only fragrance that has made me feel ravished at the first sniff. Is it stupid to be almost moved to tears by a smell? Apres L'Ondee is pure beauty: damp violets, delicate, transparent, a trifle melancholy. It's like Monet or Debussy for your nose (stealing the latter comparison from Luca Turin because it's apt). It's also fleeting.

  • Summary: I don't have the perfume vocabulary to describe Apres L'ondee, nor can I think of where to start without sounding pretentious. I'll simply say that, to me, this smells like my mother's herb garden early on Easter morning: damp, chilly, clean and quiet, light and beautiful. I'm not a "perfumista." I don't have a wardrobe full of fragrances, and I truthfully don't care for most perfumes I encounter.
