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.

Bois D'Armenie by Guerlain c2006

Bois D'Armenie by Guerlain: launched in 2006 as part of the L’Art et la Matière collection. Created by Annick Menardo.

From Guerlain:
The ethereal Bois d'Armenie, inspired by Papier d'Armenie (the scented paper used as incense since the 16th century), is a panoramic sensation of wood, spice and oriental accents wrapped in a transparent cloud of smoke. A beautiful harmony using the heart of benzoin, pink pepper, coriander, patchouli and white musk creates a billowing mist of delicacy. Seductive and alluring, it is made for the woman who leaves a lasting impression, haunting those who dare to love her.

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a woody oriental fragrance.

  • Top notes: incense, iris, pink pepper
  • Heart notes: guaiac wood, coriander leaves
  • Base notes: copahu balm, patchouli, white musk

About L'Art et la Matiére:

L'Art et la Matiere is a collection of rare perfumes that capture the world's most luxurious raw materials with vision and daring. "Matière" means "material" in French. The name of the line is actually a pun on the French expression "L'Art et la manière". It's used when you talk about there being a certain "correct" way of doing things, with "art and manner".
