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 Home Fragrances - Les Parfums d'Interieur

Any perfume house worth its extrait is now adding home fragrances to its range, enabling perfume-lovers to infuse their homes with the same scent they spritz behind their ears. As early as the 19th century, Guerlain offered numerous scents for the home. Many people may not know that Guerlain has currently has a home fragrance range including: room sprays, candles, incense sticks and soaps. They are only available from their flagship store on the Champs-Elysées in Paris, usually only sold in their boutique and some are even given away for gifts with purchase or to special VIP clients.

180g (6.4oz) candles retailing at $95 each.


Bois des Indes (Indian Woods): it's spiced woods scent recalls an intense journey to the sacred heart of India. Another place that transports you into the cool air of an agreement of crushed leaves revived by the sparkle fruity rhubarb. The mild sweetness of sandalwood weaves jasmine petals on a bed of vanilla.

Fleurs Des Iles (Island Flowers): based on the Aqua Allegoria scent Lys Soleia.Top notes: bergamot, lemon and palm leaves. Heart: lily, ylang-ylang, and tropical fruits. Base: tuberose, vanilla and white musk.

Boudoir Vénitien (Venetian Boudoir): its powdery floral scent imagines an intimate moment in Italy.Venetian Boudoir is a tribute to the warm interior and baroque. The intimacy of a cozy alcove nimbus of a tender and sweet scent that starts on blackcurrant. The Parma violet then whispers its secrets to the rich leather of Cordova, in a cloud of scent of rice powder. 

Forêt de Sumatra (Sumatran Forest):  its  exotic woody scent is inspired by the imaginary scenery of the Indonesian forest, with notes of moss, jasmine, ylang-ylang, smoked tea, vanilla, benzoin, tonka bean and patchouli. On the occasion of its launch, the design of the entire candle collection has been changed into a heavier, shiny glass jar bearing Guerlain's revived Sun King symbol. c2013.

Pot Pourri Parisien: (Parisian Potpourri): A stroll through the heart of the French capital, an encounter on the banks of the Seine, a stolen kiss… A bouquet of aromas with enchanting lingering notes. Paris, the city of temptations, where the sweet smell of cinnamon flirts with patchouli and sandalwood. A potpourri of scents, like a vague memory of yesteryear. Audacious Paris. Romantic Paris. Paris, I love you. Oriental, Aromatic. An olfactory reference to Jicky.

Pluie De Petales (Mist of Petals): the fragrance is inspired by the perfume Idylle.

Hiver en Russie (Russian Winter): its woodsy oriental fragrance recalls shivering at the sumptuous frosty Slavic palace . Contrast between the warmth of golden domes and snow white ... It gets inside and discovers a mystical fragrance from precious woods and incense. Gradually, the warm amber reassurance and shuddered at the touch of clove exploding overwhelming sensuality. Recollecting the pleasure of dazzling palaces and the luxuriousness of Russia under the Tsars. The perfumed tea of a samovar gets together with the smell of wax. The precious ashes enriched with myrrh illustrate the gold churches' mystic splendor. 

Contes Tahitiens (Tahitian Fairy-Tales): its friuty and solar scent recalls the exotic scents of the islands ... Reminiscent of lush shores where time languished, Tales Tahitians breathes like a whirlwind of sunflowers sweet tiare of fresh guava, which capsized on the creamy sweetness of sandalwood Marquesas and sensuality of vanilla Raiatea.
