If Guerlain is a very prestigious brand, it is also very appreciated for its second degree. Indeed, since the release of L’Homme Idéal in 2014, the brand has proven that it is not lacking in humor. Moreover, all his communication is based on this aspect. No wonder then that this perfume, which is moreover perfectly structured, has turned into a real success. Also, Guerlain seems to want to give us a new side of this perfect man. This one is seen in an even more concentrated version, a true prince charming! At the very least, thanks to L’Homme Idéal Eau de Perfume, it will at least smell like it …
To develop its first version of L’Homme Idéal, Guerlain started with a feminine premise. According to women, the ideal man had to be “intelligent, handsome and strong”.

Moreover, it was created, like its elder, by the talented Thierry Wasser.

L’Homme Idéal Eau de Parfum therefore opens with a very fresh and dynamic scent symbolizing the lively spirit of man. This perfume combines the zesty scent, tangy and sparkling bergamot with a spicy character typical of oriental perfumes. The Bulgarian rose, for its part, immediately displays its elegance. However, unlike the May rose, this one retains a strong dose of freshness and even wants to be slightly lemony. Then,The Ideal Man reveals his seductive side to us . Its bewitching almond is associated with the exoticism of vanilla as well as the waxy, spicy and peppery smell of incense. Finally, it all ends with the intense masculinity of L’Homme Idéal. This is reflected in particular through the smoothness of tonka bean accompanied by the waxy and woody scent of sandalwood.

This exceptional fragrance is then contained in a bottle almost similar to that of its elder. It adopts a square, simple and refined shape.
