The forthcoming EdP version of L'Homme Idéal is revealed to be a joint creation between Thierry Wasser and Delphine Jelk. Delphine Jelk was the author of the original La Petite Robe Noire (2009), and has worked as Thierry Wasser's co-perfumer since then. However, it's not until now that she's officially mentioned at the launch of a new Guerlain fragrance.
L'Homme Idéal EdP is described as a whole new interpretation of the almond note, with spices, Bulgarian rose, tonka bean, incense, sandalwood, and vanilla. Thierry Wasser explains that the fragrance is infused with vanilla from top to base. "Guerlain is one of the rare houses to use this unique vanilla tincture, an indispensable ingredient in the Guerlinade. Thanks to the expertise of our laboratory at Orphin, it's made by hand by cutting the vanilla pods into small pieces and letting them soak in alcohol until it obtains a beautiful, warm amber colour."
For this version, the handsome black and white design of the original bottle has been morphed into a taupe and orange scheme. Read more (in French)
