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.

Prince Albert's Bouquet c1840

Prince Albert's Bouquet: created by Pierre-François Pascal Guerlain in 1840, may have been created for the Queen's marriage to Prince Albert, the counterpart fragrance for women is Bouquet de Victoria.

 Presented in the ‘Carré’ styled bottle.

This fragrance was also manufactured by John Gosnell & Company as well as other companies. "Court" perfumes were very popular during this time, as perfume companies created fragrances to commemorate special events, hoping to receive royal warrants for their products. Other fragrances were Victoria Bouquet, Adelaide Bouquet, Prince of Wales's Bouquet, Princess of Wales's Bouquet, etc.
