Guerlain Chamade perfume was launched in 1969 to great critical acclaim. Perfume critic Luca Turin named Guerlain Chamade as one of the greatest perfumes of all time. Housed in a beautiful heart shaped shell, similar to Botticelli's 'The Birth of Venus' , Chamade perfume is meant to embody the essence of femininity. Guerlain Chamade perfume is a delicate, green floral fragrance with a powdery balsamic base. Guerlain Chamade begins with a seductive and dynamic blend of hyacinth, galbanum, over a rich and distinctive heart of ylang-ylang, jasmine, blackcurrant bud and an evocative base of vanilla and sandalwood.
