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.

L'Extrait de Roses pour Les Lèvres c1853

L'Extrait de Roses pour Les Lèvres by Guerlain was a liquid lip color, introduced in 1853. It was a long lasting formula that stayed in place even during meals.

L'Artiste: journal de la littérature et des beaux-arts, 1856:
"Par conséquent ce mélancolique visage ne demandera pas à Guerlain son rouge de Damas ni son rouge de la cour ni son rouge Plessis. Pourtant ce pâle visage prendra de l'extrait de roses pour les lèvres, ou de la pommade carminée, car une petite bouche fraîche et vermeille est un des plus grands de la beauté."

Art et décoration, Volume 5, 1899:
"L'Extrait de roses pour les lèvres de Guerlain supprime ces inconvénients et parfume délicieusement la bouche."
