    How bizarre. The Guerlain counter at my closest Hudson Bay also was shut down this past January, and I'm in Canada. I assumed it was because there is a counter across the street at the Shoppers Drug Mart but perhaps they are just downsizing.

    I went trough some connections and here is the info directly from guerlain - not puling out of usa market just closing most of the non profitable doors and focusing on fewer but bigger counters. they have completely new management

    I ordered the lightest of the of the Sun Trio when it released on the french Sephora website this week, and I'm a bit disappointed.
    It's a "bronzing contouring palette - light and shadow" but from the first impression swatches it's really orange. I was hoping for a bit of a more natural shade since it's supposed to be a sculpting thing, though I should have known.

    It's night and I only have artificial light now, but if anybody would be interested I'm happy to take a pic and swatch in daylight.

    ETA: Now that i've seen the picture on the instagram someone posted above, maybe I should have gone for natural.

    The bronzers look very nice, but definitely too dark for me. I don't like hearing that Guerlain is scaling back their business, because I don't know how many of their counters are profitable where I am (Montreal). On the other hand, maybe my wallet will thank me when

    Based on Monsieur Guerlain blog this is basically Mon Exclusif in a different bottle, and a little less expensive, which is a shame, they could've done something different. I personally think that Mon Exclusif was to sweet for my taste. But i'm excited to smell the new addition to the L'art de la matière collection, they add Joyeuse Turebeuse, and after reading his review sound way more in tune with my taste of perfume.

    Yes have Tonka imperial (tobacco and vanilla ) and Cuir Beluga (have more suede note than leather) both really similar a lot of guerlinade at the base but really well blend. Also really power house in sillage and longevity, so you have to love it.
    I also have from les elixirs charnels Goumand coquain (chocolate, rhum and vanilla) and Oriental Brulant (spicy vanilla) my favourite is Oriantal Brulant .

    I'm bummed! The instagram images of the Terracotta and Bronzer Trios are not showing/not available!

    Nice images of the "new" Mon Guerlain

    this is so shocking I read that and honestly I can believe guerlain will allow themselves something like this

    although they did repackage/rename /re-release same scents before but this being such a huge launch I am stunned...

    What I think it is more shocking is that Mon Exclusif wasn't really a success so why do the same ?
    I went to my Guerlain counter today, and Mon exclusif was still there and no bottle of Joyeuse Tubereuse. I didn't expect to see those two perfumes but you never know.

    I guess hiring Angelina would do the trick?
