Pois de Senteur (or sweet pea) has a delicate perfume - one that has been memorialised many times by many perfumers. In 1917, Guerlain launched their own interpretation which strayed away from the norm and focused on rich florals and, nectar-like honey accords - painting an impressionistic picture of a spring garden with flowers in bloom. Pois de Senteur has a citrus / orange flower opening, rousing notes of iris, hyacinth and rose over a balsamic woody base. The sum of all components left a sensation of a lazy bumble-bee - moving from one blossom to another - humming in the ears. Long since retired, Pois de Senteur is a perfume paradigm of the pre-Art Deco age.
