This, in turn, was mingled with a chypre harmony, emblematic of Guerlain, composed of patchouli and white musk, selected for its warmth.
And lastly came the bouquet that complemented the roses to perfection: lily-of-the-valley, lilac, peony, freesia and jasmine.
The bottle is beautiful and shaped as a big drop of liquid gold. I was looking for something that smelled like the complex florals at the opening of Amouage Dia Woman without turning into all aldehydes. And yes, Narciso has a way too creamy drydown to even compare it with the musk in Idylle, although they are both floral chypres, in theory.
Idylle is strong, three or four sprays is enough and It lasts very well. And this comes really quite close (though not as sparkling and complex). I love how the rose rounds out the other florals without totally dominating (though it's definitely a main player). Idylle keeps a more sharp dry-down, there's no creaminess there. I do realize that i have a love - hate relationship with lilly of the valley. Idylle was a fragrance I didn't expect to like because I'm not a huge fan of florals and I love the traditional Guerlainade.

Idylle is the latest creation by Guerlain for mainstream distribution, introduced in September 2009.
A friend of mine hugged me during the night and she inhaled my hair the way you inhale a delicious looking meal and exclaimed: "You smell like a chest box full of flowers! It had a special charm that each perfume had its own matching Flacon, which should also reflect the character of the fragrance. this is a scent that has so many layers and dimensions, it changes through the day,still lingers in my hair at night..
I would advise anyone who is interested in testing or buying it not to be fooled in considering it to be just another indifferent floral perfume. I bought Idylle several years ago based on an impulsive quick sniff when it was being sold very cheaply by a perfume store that was going out of business. An unfortunate effect from a less-than idyllic fragrance that has so much potential, but in the end remains unused.
I love Guerlain for quality, but this is not my favourite.
the Rose and other floral notes, together with the musk and patchouli notes work as a 'frame' to enhance the beauty of the Jasmine, which, to me, is the star of this perfume. The rose here isn't super rosey, it's more of the idea of roses mixed with purple flowers.
If you want something different, unique, ethereal and strong at the same time, give this piece of gem a try... I get some soft fruit vibes, pears that aren't actual pears, but again, the idea of pears. It's nice, but I can't see myself reaching for it often because it's a little too safe. I prefer my scent to slowly smother me with deep, rich, dark heaviness.
