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.

Cuir Beluga by Guerlain c2005

Cuir Beluga by Guerlain: launched in 2005 as part of the L’Art et la Matière collection. Created by Olivier Polge.






From Guerlain:

Like a pair of luxurious, buttery soft leather gloves, Cuir Beluga's smooth touch is a perfect fit. Guerlain has taken leather to new olfactory heights, blending it with Mandarin orange, amber, heliotrope and vanilla.

Enigmatic and mysterious, Cuir Beluga has lured both men and women into its velvety paradox. It is made for the woman or man with leather gloves curled around a steering wheel with wind-tousled hair, staring down an open road and happily consumed by the journey.



So what does it smell like? It is classified as a leather fragrance.
  • Top notes: aldehydes, tangerine, mandarin
  • Heart notes: patchouli, everlasting flower (immortelle)
  • Base notes: vanilla, amber, suede, heliotrope, leather


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".
