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.

Jicky by Guerlain Powder Box c1950s

Very rare powder box "talc parfume" design for Jicky by Guerlain dating from the 1950s. This lattice design imitating limed wood was popular on the presentation boxes for Coque D'Or, Dawamesk and Kriss. This powder box was covered in tissue paper instead of cellophane, quite unusual and early.

The "dot" design was used on perfume boxes from the 1950s til it was replaced by the zig zag design from 1967.
