Guerlain Chant D'Aromes was first introduced in 1962. Jean-Paul Guerlain created the fragrance, a floral chypre, for a woman who wears perfume just for herself. He said "I chose spring flowers like honeysuckle and gardenia, embellished them with mandarin and bergamot and added a touch of jasmine and a hint of ylang-ylang.” It is more demure than some of it's more outgoing siblings in the Guerlain family, and sunnier.
Chant d'Aromes has notes of peach, bergamot, mandarin, tuberose, ylang ylang, helichrysum, gardenia, honeysuckle, jasmine, orris root, cedarwood, sandalwood, musk, oakmoss, frankincense, vetiver, and tonka bean. This is the EDT, eau de toilette.
Reviews of Guerlain Chant d'Aromes EDT
From Bois de Jasmin - "Chant d’Arômes has been reformulated numerous times, and today I like it much better than I did five years ago. It has a fresher, brighter quality than before, more similar to the original. The lack of oakmoss is felt, of course. However, it is overall a lovely retro chypre that should not be overlooked."
From the Non-Blonde - "Chant d'Aromes is petal soft, a little peachy pink and abstract- there's no one flower that claims the spotlight or displays any assertiveness. It just wafts in the air around me, making me feel pretty and ready for spring. There are no rough edges, no extra sweetness, none of the Guerlain familiar sex bomb in a pastry shop accord. Just delicate flowers, peach fuzz and tender new leaves."
