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 du Moulin by Guerlain c1907

Rose du Moulin by Guerlain: created in 1907, a rose tinted pomade that was used to rouge the cheeks but could also be used on the lips. It came in several different shades for different skin colors, such as for brunettes, blondes. Also came in colors such as Mandarine, Soleil Levant (sunrise), Medium, Iris, Scarlet, Rose Camelia and Tropical.

It's whimsical name was a play on the name Moulin Rouge, and even the little pot has a small image of the Moulin Rouge's famous windmill. The little jars were made by Pochet et du Courval. The item was #600 in the Guerlain stock catalog.

It was originally contained in an emerald green glass pot with a matching glass lid, elegantly decorated with gilded enameling.

The later editions from 1914 onward were clear glass, and instead of the hand enameled designs, it had a paper label encircling the middle, reproducing the earlier hand painted images.
