Place Rouge by Guerlain: launched in 2013. Created by Thierry Wasser. Limited edition released commemorating the 120th anniversary of the Russian department store Glavnyi Universalnyi Magazin (GUM) located in Moscow's Red Square. The perfume's name is named after it's location, Place Rouge (Red Square).
So what does it smell like? It is classified as a floral amber musk fragrance for women. Like the electrically charged atmosphere of a thunderstorm, dark, pregnant clouds releasing little droplets onto a bracing herb garden dotted with fresh violets and sweet heliotrope, but with ambery notes on an earthy, yet gourmand base. This perfume is actually a reissue of Guerlain's 2007 limited edition fragrance Quand Vient la Pluie.
