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 Cologne Imperiale 160th Anniversary Limited Edition c2013

Deluxe edition for the 160th anniversary of the bee bottle and Eau de Cologne Impériale, the creation that catapulted the success of Guerlain in 1853. For this edition, Guerlain has asked French artist Lison de Caunes to conceive a magnificent decoration for the monumental one-litre golden bee bottle using straw marquetry, a technique which was widely used in Art Deco. The box, entirely covered with straw marquetry, features Guerlain’s revived Sun King logo. Thirty-two numbered pieces have been produced.

Fragrance Advice from Guerlain

Guerlain advises:


The art of perfuming holds many secrets. Prolong your ritual and let your fragrance surprise you… Enjoy it to your heart’s desire!

Perfume your umbrella… Your trail will follow you, even between the raindrops. 

Discover a delicate, sensual and even more intimate perfuming ritual. Lightly spray Guerlain Eau de Lingerie on your “little nothings” before getting dressed. And if you cannot bear to go without your favourite fragrance, spray a small piece of cotton and slip it into your lingerie drawer. For more intense perfuming, hand-wash your lingerie with your Guerlain shower gel or all-over shampoo. If you do not have the shower gel of your Guerlain fragrance, spray a few drops of Eau de Toilette into a small amount of neutral shower gel.

Perfume your pillow with Guerlain Eau de Lit for sweet-smelling nights.

When you travel, you can feel at home wherever you are. Simply perfume your hotel room with Eau de Lit and slip a perfumed handkerchief into your suitcase.

Perfume your brushes and combs. As you style your hair, they leave a light scent, like a perfumed mist.

Perfume the hems of your clothing to intensify your fragrant trail.

Perfume your scarf or pashmina and keep your fragrance nestled against you at the base of your neck all day long.
