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.

Vol de Nuit Evasion c2007

Vol de Nuit Evasion: created by Mathilde Laurent.in 2007 in cooperation with Alea, the chain of airport duty free shops, and it can only be purchased at the Alea stores in France and Great Britain, as well as the Guerlain boutiques.

“Vol de Nuit EVASION, a nomadic homage to a classic scent from Guerlain.
A special creation reserved for travel retail, Vol de Nuit Evasion tells ‘the tale of a nocturnal evasion, a few hours of an internal adventure, an airy, olfactory bridge between fiction and reality’. A sweet scent of amber and woods that, like the logo on the midnight-blue packaging, diffuses a soft, warm light in the darkness. Find it at selected airport perfume counters and Guerlain boutiques. A fragrance with a sweet opening of rose and peach, evolving towards waves of jasmine and iris. The oriental trail is warmed with woods, amber and vanilla.”

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It is classified as an ambery floral fragrance for women. It does not smell anything like the original Vol de Nuit, but instead smells a lot like a sophisticated, yet lighter version of Attrape Coeur, because it is the eau de toilette version of Attrape Coeur.
  • Top notes: peach, raspberry, bergamot
  • Middle notes: violet, iris, rose, jasmine, and tuberose, cinnamon
  • Base notes: amber, vanilla, orris, tonka bean, sandalwood, oakmoss, leather, patchouli

Over the years it has gone through several incarnations:
  • 1999 Guet Apens 
  • 2002 No.68   
  • 2005 Attrape Cœur 
  • 2007 Vol de Nuit Evasion
  • 2014 Royal Extract 


The perfume is housed in the modified Bouchon Coeur flacon, with the stopper shaped like an up-side-down heart, packed in a blue box, decorated with propeller to create the optical illusion effect.

Available as:
  • 50 ml Eau de Toilette (original retail price was $65) 

Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued, date unknown.
