Hello and welcome! Please understand that this website is not affiliated with Guerlain in any way, it is only a reference page for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

The main objective of this website is to chronicle the history of the Guerlain fragrances and showcase the bottles and advertising used throughout the years.

However, one of the other goals of this website is to show the present owners of the Guerlain perfume company how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the current Guerlain brand might see it.

Bora-Bora c2010

Bora-Bora: Created in either 2010. First noted by Octavian Coifan as seen in Madame Figaro magazine. This perfume was a limited edition created by Thierry Wasser.




The fragrance was a parfum extrait and was inside a 500ml Baccarat crystal flacon. It was accompanied by a black leather coffret holding 23 parfums, 20 - 60ml sizes and 3 - 30ml sizes, each in a crystal flacon, and additional atomizer hardware that could be used for some of the bottles.

Price was listed as 27,000 Euros ($35,720). It was custom made for Le Madame Figaro in favor of the Carla Bruni-Sarkozy Foundation, no doubt for a fundraising event.

I found an old auction record from 2010 from Artcurial. Selling this set
