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.

Guerlain article c1993

Guerlain article from the LA Times:

Guerlain Knows Fragrance Is Applied to Pulse Points
March 19, 1993 by |ROSE APODACA

"When Robert Guerlain discusses his family's 164-year contribution to the art of fragrances, he wryly remarks in his heavy-coated French accent: "It certainly smells of success." 
It's a great understatement coming from a member of the oldest family-owned fragrance and cosmetics company in the world. But it was in just that understated fashion that Guerlain spoke during a luncheon for 90 guests at Neiman Marcus Fashion Island last week. 

Guerlain was in the United States to officially launch the opening of four new in-store boutiques in the Southwest, including the Newport Beach location. There are 27 boutiques nationwide. As director of special projects, he has devoted much of his energy toward educating the consumer about the Guerlain name and the fragrance industry. 
In addition to signing bottles of Shalimar, Samsara, Imperial and other potions, he personalized copies of the English translation of the family biography, "Guerlain," by fragrance journalist Colette Fellous. 
The sensually written coffee table book was originally released in French in 1989 to coincide with the launch of Samsara, a fragrance that has become the company's most popular worldwide. Shalimar, which debuted in 1925, continues to rank as Guerlain's best-seller in the United States. 
The English-language version precedes the launch of a men's fragrance that will appear this fall in this country. Its name? Heritage."
