Samsara Eau de Parfum by Guerlain Review
Description
Be prepared to be seduced by Guerlain’s Samsara—the scent, which is overwhelmingly made of sandalwood, is sweet without feeling overdone, creamy and clean. It is paired with jasmine, among many other accords, to keep it from being too cloying. The vanilla and the ylang ylang add more character to the syrupy fragrance. It is not loud but can be depended on to stay on your skin throughout the day. It may not be today’s definition of trendy, but Samsara is memorable and sensual through and through.

Samsara was created with an intention to seduce—Jean-Paul Guerlain was supposedly wooing an Englishwoman who he gifted with the scent, using two ingredients she liked most: jasmine and sandalwood. It then became an official Guerlain fragrance in 1989, meant to reinvigorate the label’s perfumery business and inevitably becoming irresistible for more women. It was luxurious in its use of sandalwood in the beginning, although this had to be replaced eventually with some Polysantol. The rest of its ingredients remained more or less the same: ylang ylang, lemon, peach, iris, jasmine, rose, vanilla, amber, tonka bean and musk are still listed as its notes.
