Guerlain Christmas 2011 - Belle du Nuit

Many apologies for featuring something that's not on counter for another month, but I love this collection so much that I just can't help myself, it's so beautiful!

I have samples of most of it (and they're coming up the rest of this week, don't worry), but the thing that really caught my eye was the Vol de Nuit bottle.  So beautiful, so retro, and it's unexpectedly filled with a shimmering pink powder, suffused with turquoise and teal sparkles, it's decidedly gorgeous on it's own terms as a party highlighter. But, it also smells wonderful, filled with iris and vanilla and yet decidedly green too, it has completely made me want a bottle of Vol de Nuit, which is something I've smelled already as part of Project Perfume, and not been as interested in it as I have other Guerlain scents.  I think this would be a wonderful addition to anyone's dressing table though. 

Consider this a Christmas hint, those who know me.  Thank you.

Once the collection reaches counter, I'll also be picking myself up the Parure de Nuit, which is the highlighter/blush combo that is laid out like peacock feathers above.  You can use it all over as a beauty powder, by sweeping a brush over the whole palette, or you can sweep your brush diagonally down the coral-shaded "eyes"  of the feathers for a more coloured effect.  It's not quite a blush, but it is beautiful.  There's a hint of glitter overspray, but I'm assured that the various different colours are all the way through the pan.

Swatches of the eyeshadow palette and the lipsticks coming up ... Guerlain Christmas will be available from Harrods from 2nd October and nationwide from 16th October.

  1. The packaging is just stunning, I love all of the blues.

  2. I wonder if the Vol de Nuit product actually is Vol de Nuit scented. IIRC Guerlain released a Sous le Vent product of a similar nature a year or two back that didn't smell of anything remotely approaching Sous le Vent so they may just be using the name and bottle design.

  3. Great She Elephant, I'm assured that the scent is "true to the original Vol de Nuit", but, without a sample of either to hand, I can't confirm this, I'm afraid. It's something that I'll definitely be coming back to once the powder is on counter.

    I *can* confirm though, that whatever it smells like, it does smell damn good.

  4. Stunning collection - adore the packaging and colours.

  5. i absolutely adore this collection sooo beautiful!! cant wait for it to get out in the stores :)

  6. That bottle looks amazing, I love the colour of it x


Thanks, I love hearing from you!
