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.

Eau de Guerlain c1973

Eau de Guerlain: launched in 1973, in USA by 1974. Created by Jean Paul Guerlain.


Fragrance Composition:


So what does it smell like? It is classified as a classic citrus fragrance for women and men. It starts off with a citrusy fresh bergamot, lemon and basil top, followed by a fresh floral woody heart of jasmine and patchouli, resting on a mossy base.
  • Top notes: fruit note, basil, bergamot, caraway, petitgrain, and lemon
  • Middle notes: carnation, thyme, sandalwood, patchouli, lavender, jasmine, mint, and rose
  • Base notes:  amber, musk, oakmoss, and verbena


I tested a vintage 1990s sample and it started off with citrus, mint and herbal notes, then the rose and jasmine became more prominent followed by a drydown of oakmoss, amber and musk.
