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.

From a press release fro 1984:

"The House of Guerlain is proud to announce the opening in April, 1984 of their first boutique in the United States. In keeping with the Guerlain tradition of uncompromising devotion to quality and refinement, the boutique will be in Bergdorf Goodman on Fifth Avenue, New York City.

The inauguration of the boutique has been planned tp coincide with the American launch of Issima, Guerlain’s luxury skin care line which will be offered exclusively at Bergdorf. Issima, a complete revitalizing beauty treatment range containing Hydrolastine, has been very successful worldwide since its introduction in 1980.

The Guerlain boutique at Bergdorf will carry severa other exclusive offerings as well as all the fragrances currently sold in the United States. The newly available fragrances will be:

  • Eau de Cologne du Coq, created in 1894.
  • Apres L‘Ondee, created in 1906
  • Eau de Fleurs de Cedrat, created in 1920
  • Vol de Nuit, created in 1933
  • Eau de Guerlain, created in 1974

Also in the new boutique, will be the complete line of the famous Guerlain floral soaps of iris, geranium, jasmin, fleurs des alpes, and savon de jeune age.

The rotunda on the First Floor of Bergdorf Goodman has been beautifully redesigned to be evocative of the Guerlain boutique on the Champs-Elysees in Paris."
