Guerlain - Cologne du 68 Fragrance Review

Posted by Dimitri on Tue, 03/14/2017 - 1:08 PM

The flagship Guerlain boutique in Paris has been trading at No. 68 Champs-Elysees for the past 103 years and has served as THE destination for perfume pilgrimages since the first world war. In 2006 - some 92 years on - the much-loved perfume house launched a cologne whose name memorializes their prestigious street address; Cologne du 68.


A scent that has been designed to enjoy with liberal application, Cologne du 68 is an aromatic citrus blend, one that is vivifying, uplifting and very much in keeping with Guerlain's vast back-catalogue of finely scented eaux. 

A genderless perfume, Cologne du 68 features a crisp citrus opening - a zesty blast of bergamot, mandarin, petitgrain orange and orange blossons. But, just as one might be thinking "citrus overload!", the sharpness is subdued by rousing florals including jasmine, freesia, frangipane, iris, ylang and rose. It has been meticulously blended to marry the more acerbic facets with the florals so that it remains resolutely unisex. Oily green aromatic accords of rosemary and sage manage to round out the composition, furnishing it with a slightly earthy, viridescent vibe.

Despite the name, its an eau de toilette concentration, and is therefore much longer lasting than traditional colognes. Cologne du 68 is a non-complicated scent without compromising on quality and luxuriousness.
