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.

Guerlain Heritage Case #1 c2008

For its 180th anniversary in 2008 Guerlain issued a luxurious leather coffret called the "Guerlain Heritage Case", containing a collection of 18 of the house's fragrances best representing its perfume history since 1828.


Only 204 copies of this limited edition case were made. The labels on the bottles are inspired by historic Guerlain labels from the Art Deco period.

"A precious and elegant leather showcase that opens to reveal 18 iconic fragrances. From Eau de Cologne Impériale, composed for Empress Eugénie in 1853, to Guerlain's newest scent, Cruel Gardénia, created in 2008. This case is a vision of elegance, a symbol of rare and refined luxury and a prestigious gift to celebrate a unique fragrance heritage."

The leather case includes Angélique Noire (eau de parfum), Bois d'Arménie (eau de parfum), Cologne du 68, Cologne Impériale (eau de cologne), Cuir Beluga (eau de parfum), Habit Rouge, Insolence (eau de parfum) , Iris Ganache (eau de parfum) , Jicky (eau de parfum) , L'Heure Bleue (eau de parfum), L'Instant (eau de parfum), L'Instant pour Homme, Mitsouko (eau de parfum), Nahema (eau de parfum), Rose Barbare (eau de parfum), Samsara (eau de parfum), Shalimar (eau de parfum)and Vetiver (eau de toilette).

The case retailed for $3,500.


Our friend "Monsieur Guerlain" has posted that "In the collector's box for Guerlain's 180th anniversary in 2008, there was a labelling error: the Jicky bottle contained L'Heure Bleue, while the L'Heure Bleue bottle contained Jicky." Photos by Mr. Guerlain.
