Launch of Mon Guerlain in Lagos & Perfume Review

Last week, I was privileged to attend the exclusive launch of the new Guerlain perfume, Mon Guerlain. It was a fantastic event attended by a select number of women in the beauty and fashion industry. 

It started out with a cocktail mixer where we had access to bottomless champagne at the Moet bar  whilst networking fiercely as is the norm at these sort of events, lol. 

There was also a tattoo bar at the venue because Mon Guerlain is said to stick to your skin like an invisible tattoo. 

The event proper kicked off with members of the Guerlain team sharing a presentation on the inspiration behind the creation of Mon Guerlain. 

An excerpt from the official press release reads:  “In 2017 Thierry Wasser, Guerlain’s Perfumer through his many journeys masterfully creates The Mon Guerlain with notes such as Carla Lavender, Sambac Jasmine, Album Sandalwood and Vanilla Tahitensis blended to create a fragrance as intimate as an invisible tattoo. Mon Guerlain is a tribute to today’s femininity – a strong, free and sensual femininity, inspired by muse Angelina Jolie; who lives through different facets of her life and has done so amazingly” 

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the exclusive launch of the new @guerlain Mon Guerlain perfume in Lagos. ☺️ It was lovely experiencing this amazing fragrance in all its feminine glory and the icing on the cake was leaving with a bottle that was engraved in Paris with my name 😍 Thank you to the entire @Guerlain team! ❤️ #Guerlain #MonGuerlain #NotesOfAWoman #GuerlainLagosTakeover #SLTFT #OOTD #AllBlackEverything

My Thoughts on Mon Guerlain

Guerlain has always done amazing perfumes and Mon Guerlain is no exception. It has a very “grown woman” scent about it. Sweet but intense, it’s like the perfect balance between the floral notes typical of many female perfumes and the darkness of an oud. Because of this, the smell lingers for quite some time which is always a good thing. 

The Mon Guerlain bottle is Guerlain’s iconic quadrilobe bottle which is very pretty but what makes this one extra special is that it was engraved with my name on it at the House of Guerlain in Paris! #MamaIMadeIt

Mon Guerlain is now available for purchase in perfume stores across Lagos- Essenza, Montaigne Place and co. You guys should definitely stop by this weekend and catch a whiff and you just might find yourself buying it! 🙂 

Peace & Love,
