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.

Idylle Duet Jasmin-Lilas by Guerlain c2012

Idylle Duet Jasmin-Lilas by Guerlain: launched in 2012. Created as a limited edition by Thierry Wasser.

From Guerlain:
"A rare alchemy between two flowers plucked from the Idylle bouquet, Idylle Duet Jasmin-Lilas celebrates the revival of the exceptional Calabrian jasmine.
For this third edition, Thierry Wasser, Guerlain Perfumer and explorer in search of the most beautiful scents, discovered the very last jasminum grandiflorum plants, forgotten in this region of Italy.
An exceptional partnership with the producer made it possible to give these precious flowers with unique warm and fruity accents a new lease of life."
Chypre Floral. Spring-like, intense, sensual. 
Idylle Duet Jasmin-Lilas is orchestrated around an overdose of jasmine and mauve lilac. At the heart, Calabrian jasmine stands out with its sensual aromas and subtle fruity accents. Warm and delicate, it blends with the delicious powdery nuances of mauve lilac in a composition steeped in sensuality.
 Thierry Wasser, Guerlain Perfumer, decided - with the help of one of his producers - to replant jasminum grandiflorum, whose cultivation had been abandoned several years ago, in the sun-drenched soil of Calabria. 
At the request of Thierry Wasser, and after hard work, hand in hand, they succeeded in giving this exceptional jasmine a new lease of life."
