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.

La Petite Robe Noire 2014 Silver Lace Limited Edition Baccarat Flacon

La Petite Robe Noire by Guerlain: 2014 Silver Lace Limited Edition Baccarat Flacon.

100ml Extrait retailing for $10,100 at the Guerlain boutique. Housed in a vintage Baccarat flacon adorned with lacy silver filigree by Sara Bran.

From Guerlain's website:
"When searching in the archives of the House of Guerlain , fifty vintage "inverted heart" bottles  - hand-made by Baccarat workshops according to the original plan of 1912 - were found . Guerlain has chosen to entrust the last twenty to a craftsman possessing a unique and rare skill: Sara Bran, gold and silver on lace.  
Combining precision , creativity and refinement, her work is inspired by lace textile heritage. For this exceptional limited edition of  La Petite Robe Noire, Sara Bran revives the ancient tradition of the ornamental perfume bottle holder. From massive plates of extremely fine silver, pierced, soldered and polished by hand for many hours. Delicate lace volutes arabesques and interlacing twirling comes conformability vial as would fabric a LBD."

Only 21 numbered pieces are available worldwide.
