Guerlain My Insolence

3.5 oz $93

Guerlain's My Insolence perfume is a great perfume for every day wear. The scent smells very feminine, soft and it really makes you feel pretty when you're spraying it on. This perfume is in the flower and gourmand category. The top notes include raspberry followed by middle notes almond blossom and jasmine with base notes patchouli, vanilla and tonka bean. Some perfumes when first sprayed you are hit with an alcoholic rank that you have to shake off but definitely not with My Insolence. The top notes are sweet almost like raspberries and cream but not overly sweet because there is a hint of powdery notes that come through as well. I don't think it is too sweet because of the hint of powdery notes and flower notes. This perfume almost smells like a warm, creamy and flowery french dessert in a bottle!

My Insolence is perfect for winter and summer you can wear it from shopping to going to a dinner. It smells very innocent, feminine, comforting and warm. As the day goes on the perfume base notes are creamy and vanilla-ish along with almond notes it also has a bit of musk at the end. The bottle is beautiful (it looks like a tilted orb in shiny milky glass with a little flower bud on top) but obviously it is not good to carry in your purse, but the perfume lasts all day so there is no need for that anyway. I personally love this perfume and definitely plan to buy one as soon as mine runs out, but remember that perfumes smell different on everyone. My Insolence only comes in EDT but it is very similar to an EDP. You can definitely smell the richness and body like an EDP, it lasts a long time and a little spritz goes a long way.

Make sure to test perfume on your skin before buying, do not use those little cards!
