At this point, the powdery aspect of the fragrance which is a very important part of Guerlain’s DNA is revealed.
As you get to the base you will discover the musky presence of labdanum, accompanied by some resinous benzoin, hence the oriental aspect. Finally, a touch of grassy oak moss and some vanilla adds a sweet element to the whole composition, wrapping up the base note.
