Guerlain Samsara was created by Jean-Paul Guerlain apparently for an Englishwoman he was attempting to seduce at the time. The woman had previously told him her favorite scents were Jasmine and Sandalwood and so when he composed Samsara he placed the central focus on these two notes. The pairing proved to be a winner and one that hadn’t been done before in the same way. In retrospect the pairing seems obvious, with the richness of Sandalwood alone often seeming a little too stifling and Jasmine having the tendency to be a little brisk and uncompromising. Together however the pair are a match made in heaven. Samsara’s notes include: bergamot, narcissus, Indian jasmine, rose, ylang ylang, iris, sandalwood, tonka bean, and vanilla. Unlike Opium and Coco, it isn’t spicy or resinous. Instead, it is warm and creamy, sweet and clean. The way that the Sandalwood and jasmine are paired in Samsara causes one to soften the other. The added notes of Vanilla tonka bean and Ylang ylang have the effect of making the composition a little sweeter, more creamy and tying it in to what customers have come to expect from Guerlain. There is also a nice white musk not in there somewhere at the bottom end, making the finish delightfully clean and almost soapy. This scent is often criticized and lumped together with all those other big 80′s fragrances. Here though I have to step in and disagree. Guerlain Samsara is no-doubt a distinctive scent but I find it altogether more poised, and subtle than a lot of the other fragrances it gets compared to. It is a true original and one that I am sure will find favor again as for me it is the quintessential autumnal fragrance.
