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.

Cachet Jaune c1937

Cachet Jaune: (Yellow Stamp/Seal) Created by Jacques Guerlain in 1937, it was a favorite of his mother. It was inspired by a love story where the letters were sealed with a seal of yellow wax.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a floral amber fragrance for women enhanced with spices and lots of vanilla.
  • Top notes: rosemary, carnation and vanilla
  • Middle notes: jasmine, rose, musk and orris
  • Base notes: tonka bean, vanilla and amber 

The New Yorker, 1937:
"Guerlain's newest cologne, Cachet Jaune, sandalwood-and-lemon tang, rich, to be appropriate for winter."

Fate of the Fragrance:

I don't know when it was discontinued but it was still being sold in 1956, this delightful fragrance was discontinued for years.

Reformulated by Jean Paul Guerlain and reissued in 2005 for the renovated flagship Guerlain store on the Champs-Elysees. It has been discontinued once again.
