Guerlain Chamade EDT Review
Chamade starts out with a peppery, green blast that I couldn't quite put my finger on. I smelled that in a couple perfumes before but it took me a while to figure it out. Then it came to me, the beginning was like the EDP version of Chanel no 19 but the whole structure of Chamade is no 19. But there are differences. Chamade mostly focuses on the green aspect and the hyacinth. No 19 does focus on the green but depending on the formulation, the emphasis is on either the rose or the iris. I knew that there was hyacinth in there but it is peppery and dominant. I couldn't think of which perfume that I have tested out that had a dominant hyacinth note but I realized that it was Une Couer Mai that I was thinking of. For a current version of a Guerlain EDT, I got about 4 hours out of this one. The vintage Guerlains (EDT), I get about 5 or 6 hours of wear.
I'm still not certain that I would get a bottle of the current version of the EDT but I think that it would be worth it to seek out the vintage version of the EDT.
