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.

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a floral oriental fragrance for women.

Les Secrets de Sophie is a unique edition with a purpose to show various moods and moments we remember. Black, pink and shimmering white decorate each quadrilobe flacon created by designer Sophie Levy, each flacon is adorned with a small jewel with a padlock and its key "as a symbol of love." According to legend, three keys worn together are said to unlock the secret doors of wealth, health and love.

Name of each flacon suggests only colour of details, so fragrance Les Secrets de Sophie was presented with three subtitles basically:

  • Les Secrets Nacres de Sophie is decorated with white sticker, bow ribbon and atomizer
