Guerlain Samsara Eau de Parfum

Special offer

Product information

It was in China and Tibet that Jean-Paul Guerlain sought the inspiration necessary to create Samsara. Samsara is a Sanskrit word that has its roots in Hinduism. It signifies the cycle of birth and rebirth, the perpetual voyage from one existence to the next, the wheel of life that keeps on turning.

Samsara is an invitation to serenity and harmony, with oneself and with the world. It is a voyage between East and West, Orient and Occident, an homage to the woman who is ever in search of serenity. It is a very sensual version of seduction, for a distinguished, radiant and generous woman who has found harmony and balance, which is notably conveyed through the composition’s raw materials.

Fragrance description:

Woody oriental harmonious, spellbinding, embracing. Through its very sensual evocation of seduction, Samsara envelops its wearer with a spellbinding predominance of jasmine. Rose, narcissus and ylang-ylang embellish the fragrance, the better to unite it with the radiant and generous warmth of sandalwood. Lastly, iris, Tonka bean and vanilla harmonize and render this remarkable fragrance sublime.

Brand Story

The GUERLAIN perfume house was founded in Paris in 1828 by Pierre-François-Pascal GUERLAIN, who opened the first boutique in the heart of the French capital, at 42, rue de Rivoli, where sophisticated women quickly head about his fragrant creations and beauty products.
 
180 years later, five generations of perfumers have succeeded one another in holding the creative reins, conjuring over 800 fragrances, including a number of timeless successes. Thierry Wasser is the current GUERLAIN Perfumer. He continues GUERLAIN’s bold tradition in combing the world for the most exclusive raw materials.
 
This sense of daring also permeates the make-up ranges, drawing on unique expertise to reveal and enhance women’s true beauty. The brand’s Iconic creations are fuelled by the imagination of its Creative Director, Olivier Echaudemaison.
 
The same audacious approach drives GUERLAIN Research, extracting the best nature has to offer in terms of inspiration and raw materials to create remarkable skincare products through a unique alchemy of nature and science.
 
Since 1828, GUERLAIN has continued to pursue an insatiable quest for the beautiful. La Petite Robe Noire, Shalimar, Habit Rouge, Terracotta, Météorites, Orchidée Impériale and Abeille Royale are just a few shining examples of this aesthetic exploration, embodied by an iconic showcase: 68, Champs-Elysées. A legendary address for a unique brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beautiful warm perfume This is such a lovely perfume. It really lasts and is always commented on.My daughter chose to wear it at her wedding. A classic 05 August 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Samsara reformulation I have given 2 stars because this is what my most recent purchase of 100ml eau de parfum spray deserves.. It lacks the staying power of my previous bottle bought 2005, there is something missing . My first purchase of this 2006 was heavenly and lasted all day I could still smell it on my clothes the following day. For me this is a very disappointing purchase from my favourite store John Lewis. 11 June 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Great John Lewis service but when this arrived it was delivered by a hermes courier in a box that looked tampered with and inside was the actual fragrance .. But on opening the Guerlain Samsara box the fragrance had leaked .. Returned 08 April Still waiting for refund. 15 April 2015
