Guerlain Metallica Revisited

I know Guerlain Metallica in the iconic Napoleonic Bee bottle is all silver-foil glitziness but if I were to describe the color (s) of this fragrance, I'd say peachy pink like Nanadebary, but with more golden honey and cinnamon spice browns and creams weaving through. Don't get me wrong; I like the metallic tones very much, as I'm all for glamour. I'm wearing Metallica today and I'm glad this is still in production even if it's being produced under the name "Metalys" instead; the new bee bottle with a simple bow looks soft enough to be marketed as a Women's fragrance now. However, I prefer the more powerful gilded presentation for myself so I'll stick to my beloved Metallica for as long as I could find it.
