BARGAIN OF THE WEEK: Guerlain, Les Meteorites (2000)

Notes: Violet, Iris, Heliotrope, Rose.

1 oz EDT spray: Retail $38; Parfum1.com $14.95.

The Bottom Line: One of Guerlain's lesser-known creations, Meteorites pays homage to soft florals with this violet-themed aroma that seems to have been discontinued. Often compared to Guerlain's Apres L'Ondee, this is the perfect scent for the approaching summer if looking for an unusual and little-known light floral. A simple composition, an adorable bottle, a low price tag, and one of the rarer Guerlains, how could you go wrong?

This one is so great (although I find the bottle a little cheesy.) It's a light violet that is not overly sweet, and smells a lot more expensive than it is... I am always trying to get people to buy it so it won't be discontinued! Thanks for talking it up.

The bottle is terribly cheesy which is why I find it so adorable! Thos little plastic beads around the cap - ugh! But the juice is a violet-lover's dream come true!
