Key Notes of Eau de Cologne Impériale

What Does Eau de Cologne Impériale Smell Like

Eau de Cologne Impériale by Guerlain starts off with a lively and bright citrus fragrance. The perfume has a strong hit of lemon, followed by the subtler tang of lemon vervain. Tucked within this citrusy opening is the sweet, floral scent of neroli, adding a touch of sophistication. The distinct aroma of bergamot adds depth and the orange note lends a sweet and juicy undertone.

As the top notes begin to fade, the fragrance transitions to a smooth and calming lavender scent. The lavender is soft, but distinct, acting as a bridge between the sparkling top notes and the earthier base notes.

The base reveals a warm and slightly sweet note of tonka bean. The cedar adds a hint of woodiness to the composition while the rosemary lends a touch of herbal freshness. The blend results in a fragrance that is green, fresh, floral, spicy and citrusy all at once. From the initial spritz of bright citrus to the warm, rich base, Eau de Cologne Impériale is a fragrance that captivates the senses.

Review of Eau de Cologne Impériale

Eau de Cologne Impériale by Guerlain is a classic scent, a timeless offering that hails from the mid-19th century. This unisex perfume, with a slightly higher appeal to men, exudes a fresh and vibrant aroma dominated by citrus and green notes. It's like a crisp morning in a lush, citrus grove, its scent invigorating the senses and subtly flirting with your olfactory memory.

However, it's not a scent that clings all day. Its longevity could be compared to a short, refreshing daytime nap rather than a deep, full-night sleep. You may find yourself reapplying it to keep the scent alive. The perfume trails behind you quietly, whispering your presence rather than announcing it to a room.

Value-wise, Eau de Cologne Impériale sits somewhere in the middle. It's a good fit for those who enjoy an understated yet notable fragrance during summer and spring months. This Guerlain fragrance serves well as a daily scent, equally suitable for leisure time or a business environment. For evening events or a night out, you might want to opt for something that packs a bit more punch.
