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.

Secret de Bonne Femme Guerlain Face Cream

Secret de Bonne Femme: Guerlain's moisturizing cream was the first of its kind. It was a staple of the company's skincare line from its creation in 1904 until 1990.

  1. The first ever skincare used at the age of 18. I was delighted with the packaging and truly felt sophisticated . However the product was not for me as it made my young skin too hydrated and I must have given it away. Which was a shame as I had fallen love with the wonderful cobalt glass jar with the embossed silver lid.
    Wish I kept it....fifty years later and I can still picture it.
    I realise now that one of the main ingredients of this early moisturiser must have been glycerine.But to be in production for so many years it would have been very popular. I wonder if it was the packaging.
