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.

Rouge D'Enfer by Guerlain c1920

Rouge d'Enfer....a lipstick by Guerlain.....c1920. It was item #50 in the Guerlain product catalog.

 Description by Guerlain:
"Perfectly matching the style of the 1920s, the fun and precious Rouge d'Enfer lipstick was returned to its original position inside the case by pulling on a tassel (patent registered in 1924)."

Sunday Times (Perth, WA : 1902 - 1954), Sunday 27 June 1926:
"Guerlain, the great perfumer, has just put out a new case for rouge. The cover of this case is provided with a double loop of silk; on lifting the cover, the rouge is brought to the desired height, and after using it one lightly pulls the end of the loop opposite to the cover, and the rouge sinks into the box. It is a very recent novelty of which we have tried to give the first news to our readers."
