    L'initial is part of Guerlain’s Legendary fragrance collection. A collection made of emblematic fragrances, composed for more than a century by 5 generations of Perfumers. These mythical pioneer perfumes compose a unique olfactive library, that the Maison Guerlain endeavors to preserve.
    The thrill of discovery and the adrenaline of a first-time encounter, like an invitation to leap into the unknown and delve into new mystery. A stimulating fragrance in a luminous, fresh interpretation. Pure and innocent, a sensation of airiness, a discreet outline of sensuality. A caress, a thrill, a fragrance of initiation. Designed by Raymond Guerlain, its iconic “inverted heart” bottle is underscored with graceful scrolls typical of Art Nouveau. Its avant-garde stopper, in the form of a hollowed heart, evokes the delicate romanticism of this perfumery masterpiece and represented a real technical feat at the time.

Perfectly blended beauty

This has become my signature scent. It is slightly sweet with a beautiful iris and vanilla note that provides a little depth. So smooth and perfectly blended to perfection it's difficult to pick out specific notes. I now have two back up bottles.

Love this Frangrance!

I'm a fan of the old Shalimar and while I love Jasmine Bonheur, I needed something in my price range. I looked for something with similar notes and I decided to take the jump and try L'intial. I now have a new favorite! It starts with a subtle powdery note that leaves a lingering sweetness with a hint of spice. It is not the over the top sweetness I find in many fragrances, nor is it the spice/powder that comes off as harsh, masculine, and/or leathery. It fades from the air fairly quickly, but it stays on the skin--this isn't something you can smell down the hallway, but you can if you are close to a person. I only wish it was a little stronger and lingered a little longer (it typically lasts 4-6 hours on my skin.) Please, please continue to produce this fragrance! I love it!

I bought this looking for a new scent that had some similar notes to Jasmine Bonheur and all I can say is I absolutely LOVE this fragrance! I do wish it was a little stronger and lingered a little longer (it lasts around 4-6 hours on my skin) but I now have a new favorite! Please please, keep this scent in the future!

Something different

I bought this fragrance 10 years ago, the bottle was similar to Shalimar’s bottle and had a blue ribbon. It was beautiful on me, really cozy. This one has the similar nature but lost longevity and powdery feelings. It’s a nice fragrance, totally recommend .

Nice autumnal fragrance

L’Initial is a warm, interesting mix of floral and spice, perfect for autumn/winter. More subtle than Shalimar, though I have to admit my favourite Guerlain fragrance is Shalimar.

I got my scent back!

I fell in love with this scent when in was part of the Shalimar range. It became my signature scent and because it worked so well with my chemistry, it was like it became part of me. It was how I wanted to present myself. Scents can be like that with people. It got discontinued and I was completely devastated. Now, it’s back as a stand alone scent at the request of customers who adore this scent, and I’m so thrilled. I really don’t care what you call it or what bottle you put it in. It’s the scent I’m after. As long as I have my scent, I am happy! Thank you Guerlain for bringing back my scent. Once you love something, you don’t want to settle for something else. Please don’t ever discontinue this again.
