Like almost each year, when things go smoothly, Guerlain puts out their annual lily-of-the-valley soliflore Le Muguet to celebrate the 1st of May. This year in 2011, and after a pause in 2010, Le Muguet returns in a new flacon created by the Parisian Creation Studio to woo collectors...
The perfume itself has probably been tweaked to respond to new regulations regarding fragrance materials associated with the recreation of the note, and the pause was probably taken by in-house perfumer Thierry Wasser to face those new restrictions. Perfumer Patricia de Nicolaï, a Guerlain relative, has recently openly lamented the new rules to which she responded with a new version of Weekend à Deauville.
Here is our review of the 2009 edition of Le Muguet.
Le Muguet is (theoretically) only available for one day at the Guerlain boutiques in Las Vegas, New York City, San Francisco, Palm Beach and Orlando on the 1st of May. A 100 ml bottle retails for $580.
