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.

Perfume for Madame c1927

The Brisbane Courier (Qld. : 1864 - 1933)
Aug 11, 1927

PERFUME FOR MADAME.

"I MUST have some perfume," said she, "or it is no fun going through the Customs-no risk no fun, you know!" Her husband objected, swearing quite a bit about the crazy ideas of women, but, of course we went to Guerlain, which is the traditional Paris house, and dates way-back to 1828, and there we found the famous perfume Shalimar, in a wonderful modern flask designed by Raymond Guerlain himself. Of course we did not forget the scented beads to match, because absolutely every one wears perfumed beads if they have not succumbed to the rage for tubular gold chain jewelry, and there are still some smart Parisians who find pearls or beads more becoming. But the pear«must be scented, and also they must match the shade of powder you use. No brunette may wear dead white pearls and look correct, and no blonde may wind a sunburn shade around her snow-white neck."
