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.

Shalimar: Bouchon Coeur Flacon

Flacon Bouchon Coeur (Heart Stopper Bottle) c1925- ?

Flacon originally created to house extraits of L'Heure Bleue, Fol Arome and Mitsouko. Later used for special edition fragrances such as Le Petite Robe Noir, Mitsouko Fleur de Lotus, Shalimar. Flacon created by Baccarat, Pochet et du Courval,Verreries Brosse, Cristalleries de Nancy and possibly Cristal Romesnil. Designed by Raymond Guerlain in collaboration with Baccarat. I am unsure as to when the bottle was used for Shalimar, it was most likely a limited edition presentation.
