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.

Rose Nacree du Desert c2012

Rose Nacree du Desert: was launched in 2012. The nose behind this fragrance is Thierry Wasser. Created as part of the Les Deserts d'Orient collection, available only to the Middle Eastern market.

From Guerlain:
Rose Nacrée du Désert showcases a magnificent Persian Rose specially selected by Thierry Wasser. Its characteristic essence gives a delicate, clever feel to this composition in which oud wood with smoky and amber accents finds full expression. Subtle and voluptuous, it represents a continent where beauty is tangible from the first promise of dawn. 
The Déserts d’Orient fragrances are housed in simple, streamlined bottles gorgeously illuminated by a shower of gold, like a symbol of riches: a sign of belonging to a world in which this precious material has always been given pride of place. 
Persian rose, grown in Iran, was used in this fragrance, marking its debut in perfumery. This very woody saffron-like rose melds with an oud wood accord, composed of patchouli, gaiac wood and a dry amber note, created by Thierry Wasser. 
Ideal for men and women alike.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a woody floral fragrance for men and women.
  • Top notes: saffron note, Persian rose, patchouli
  • Middle notes: cardamom, curcuma, cedar wood, oud accord
  • Base notes: myrrh, benzoin


Available as:
  • 75ml eau de parfum (unisex)
