Perfume "Gerlen Insols": description of the fragrance, reviews
Guerlain is the oldest perfume house, where for two centuries they create alchemy of fragrances, personifying luxury, refined taste and authentic French charm.
When in 1828 Pierre-Francois-Pascal Guerlain opened a small shop where he sold his own soap and bath salts, nobody could assume that soon the young chemist would become interested in perfumes and learn about it Paris, and then the whole world.
Brand competence in the art of creating fragrances is beyond doubt. The desire to create the best perfume in the world led to the fact that from generation to generation House perfumers produced unique creations, dozens of which were honored with the epithet “Legendary”.
Aromas "Gerlen" are simple and concise. The secret is to use a small number of components that do not drown out the properties of each other. Guerlain perfume is easily recognizable, because it is always present "gerlinad" - floral-vanilla chord, a unique formula which is kept in the strictest secret.In addition, the composition is based on the use of natural ingredients, and the amount of synthetics is not more than 20%.
For example, the Gerlen Insolance spirits that debuted in 2006 instantly gained phenomenal success as the best representative of powdery fragrances. The author of the song, Maurice Rusel, managed to interest buyers in the game of contrasts, where sweet berry notes are quickly replaced by floral shades that turn into a sensual base of sandalwood and musk.
How was created "Gerlen Insolance": description of the composition
The release of the fragrance was entrusted to Maurice Rusel, the man who worked on Gucci Envy, Serge Lutens Iris Silver Mis and Donna Karan Be Delicious. According to the perfumer, Insolence, despite the standard set of components, is not traditional; in his creation there is no classical structure of the pyramid, where the disclosure of the composition occurs from the top note to the base.
Gerlen Insols can be described as a "spiral" aroma, in which the key chords do not change. However, the approach used by Rusel is not revolutionary - the same principle was created by Allure from Chanel.
A few words about the perfume pyramid
Traditionally, perfume compositions built on hints of violet belong to the category “for adults,” but Insolence was initially positioned as “young”.Therefore, for the advertising campaign, Fashion House chose Hilary Swank, who successfully debuted in the movie “Baby in a Million”. With the help of the actress, the brand sought to attract the attention of girls and young women.
In fact, the apparent youth of the aroma is deceptive: the composition resembles the creation of 1906 by Apres L`Ondee. According to Rusel, Gerlen Insolens perfume is a response to a vintage masterpiece, which is still one of his favorites.
The pyramid is an interesting combination of contrasts: the top notes are sweeter than fans of previously released adult songs Guerlen surprise. However, the sugary crimson smell quickly replaces the incense of iris and violet. The bouquet ended with a cream base of sandalwood and musk.
The idea of creating a bottle with a large decorative rose belongs to the famous designer Serge Manso, who worked with such brands as Escada, Faberlik, Kenzo.
"Gerlen Insols": Aroma description
Guerlen Insolence is unlike the previous creations of the Fashion House, in which there were almost no fruit notes - with the exception of peach chords in the Mitsuoko composition and cream in Parure toilet water.
As mentioned earlier, the Gerlen Insolens aroma is built on notes of violet, rose, iris, tonka bean, sandalwood, musk. The sharpness of the top chords of Insolence is instantly exhausted by the scent of flowers, and fruit shades gradually soften, but remain until the end of the sound. According to customers, the Fashionable House with a long history has once again managed to create a truly high-quality perfume - it lacks the sugary sweetness inherent in almost all the so-called youth fragrances, but there is that sophistication that every woman appreciates, regardless of age. Vanilla-sandal base due to the softening of the top notes acquires a special tenderness. Much depends on concentration in the composition created by Rusel, if Insolence perfume reveals all sensuality of sandalwood and musk, then sweet chords predominate in Gerlen Mai Insolans toilet water, and the fragrance itself is easy, which is always inherent in carefree youth.
Cost: from 1100 to 4300 rubles.
"The sparkling flower arrangement" is considered the most sensual and bold among the whole Insolance line. Notes of red berries, toffee and violet make the fragrance romantic and give a mysterious tenderness.But the warm evening composition is distinguished by elegant severity and special charm.
A bouquet of Blooming Insolence reveals fresh notes of orange flowers and a delicate rose. For extra deep and natural sound, musk, sandalwood, jasmine and bergamot were used. According to the creators, the fragrance is a synthesis of two previous versions of Insolence and My Insolence, where they raised Japanese themes, which can be traced not only in the composition, but also in the design of the bottle.
The land of the rising sun has always attracted its mystery. It is amazing how in one culture the conservative views of society and the seductiveness of geishas could be combined. Gerlen Insolance Blooming is a sense of foreboding, giving the feeling that spring will soon turn into summer. Each owner of the composition of the Fashion House provided an opportunity to feel like a seductive geisha in a world where modest notes, intertwined with bold, will carry passion, desire and love into a whirlpool.
The cost of fragrance: from 1000 to 2100 rubles.
Insolence Crazy Touch
Another flanker "Gerlen Insolens" with the addition of bright notes and a slightly simplified composition was released in the winter of 2013.The first thing that catches the eye is “A crazy touch” - a bottle in the form of an asymmetrical flower with a repetitive inscription Crazy Touch and neon peas. Look at the photo, how can you not plunge into the "madness"?
After studying the bottle, the acquaintance with the aroma begins - in comparison with the classical versions, the differences between “Crazy Touch” are minimal: the typical notes of violet sound here too, and very brightly. Flanker did not convey his audacity and intolerance - either you love him or hate him.
Initially, the owner of Gerlen Insolens Krazy Touch will feel a bunch of raspberry and bergamot berries, which are in abundance in the composition, but after all the attention is drawn to the heart notes: rose, violet and orange color. Completion of the composition is unchanged for Insolence plume of musk, sandalwood, iris and tonka bean.
Getting along with such a firework of components is not easy, so the dosage is important. Even one zilch is able to carry you into the world of madness. The fragrance has a certain evening context, which is why many customers called it temperamental and characteristic.
Special attention should be paid to the train and resistance - they are stunning, however, as the composition itself.According to reviews, clothes after one zilch retains the scent for a whole day, and the smell on the skin lasts up to 48 hours.
Average price: 3800 rubles.
Insolence Eau Glacee
Many consider it a perfume for women aged 40+, while others are inclined to believe that the composition perfectly completes the image of a vamp woman. So who is she, the mistress of Guerlain Insolence Eau Glacee fragrance with an icy temper?
The summer flanker was released in early spring 2009. The perfumer Randa Hammam worked on the creation of a flower and fruit composition. The essence of the aroma is revealed by the sound of black currant buds, red berries, bergamot, mandarin, apple and green chords. Heart notes of Insolence eau Glacée are filled with ylang-ylang, orange color, jasmine, violet, rose, iris. The base of the plume, as always, includes musk and sandalwood, next to which vetiver and light wood “dance”.
According to the creators, perfume is the embodiment of charm and originality. Its owner is a graceful and mysterious lady. The composition also personifies youth and carelessness, so the designer gave the bottle a hemispherical shape, which in tandem with a light and soft style resembles a blooming rose bud.

Insolence eau de parfum
Another flanker "Gerlen Insolens", reviews of which literally blew up the thematic forums, belongs to the group of fruit flavors and was released a year earlier than the previous one. Some customers say: Insolence Eau de Parfum is designed for women who seduce, cunning and embarrass others, while others believe that toilet water is for the modern Snow Queen, whose secrets are kept under the weight of ice floes and white icebergs.
The main difference from the previous flankers is in the perfume pyramid, which in this version is “destroyed”. Eau de toilette, skipping the upper chords, immediately shows heart notes (mint, pink pepper and lotus) and gradually turns into a powdery plume of violet, musk, tonka bean and resin.
Cost: from 2 960 to 5 290 rubles.
Insolence Shimmering Edition
Another fragrance, released in 2008, belongs to the floral-fruit group. The design of the bottle of the updated and well-loved variation of Insolence has remained the same, the only thing that has undergone changes is the bouquet of the composition, which has become more bright and airy.
Reviews about the spirits "Gerlen Insolens Schimmering Edition" extremely enthusiastic.All this is due to the presence in the bottle of microblings, creating a beautiful glow on the skin of their owner.
Insolence Shimmering Edition is not for nothing called the fragrance of the future. It's hard to disagree with this - this is a kind of perfumery high-tech galactic scale. Perhaps that is why he is popular with Arab women, because the only association that spirits cause is the smell of the skyscrapers of Dubai.
The deliberate artificiality of the composition captivates and at the same time creates futuristic landscapes of metal and glass. The women called the fragrance difficult to understand and comprehend. The one who "will live" to the finals, which due to its durability lasts up to several days, will be rewarded. In another case, you still do not understand the beauty of a unique masterpiece.
Average price: 3000 rubles.
