Description
We, like everyone else, expected the eau de toilette variant of the Idylle to be lighter than the original. It is in fact that, as well as brighter and more floral to us. Bulgarian rose takes center stage here, but other blooms like lilac, jasmine, ylang ylang and lily of the valley complement the note. It is not overly sweet owing to the musk and the green accords, but the drydown can be deal-breaker as Idylle ends up becoming dry.

Positives
Bright and refreshing mix of florals, such as ylang ylang, lily of the valley, and lilac, besides the Bulgarian rose
Staying power is good for an EDT
The green notes help in making it feel like a light and easy to wear fragrance
Simple but classy perfume bottle
Negatives
The drydown is unexciting and leaves an unpleasant, dry musky smell

If the eau de toilette version of the Idylle feels vaguely similar to the original, then that may be attributed to the former sharing the same perfumer with the latter: Guerlain’s resident perfumer, Thierry Wasser. It is intended to be a scent of its own though, highlighting Bulgarian rose more than the others. The bottle it comes in is identical with other flankers as it is shaped just like a drop. It also happens to be in gold.
