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'Instant de Guerlain c2003

L'Instant de Guerlain by Guerlain: launched in 2003. Created by Maurice Roucel.

From Guerlain:
"L'Instant de Guerlain celebrates unique and moving moments of emotion. These instants are both fragile and marvellous, seemingly suspended somewhere outside of time in a place where one moment can change everything and anything becomes possible.
L’Instant de Guerlain is one of these unique moments where everything can change. It's a moment of intense emotion between a man and a woman. A new femininity envelops the woman. Time can stand still. The woman sees her true self. L’Instant de Guerlain inaugurates a new olfactory interpretation of the oriental family: "Crystalline Amber". In the tradition of the great Guerlain fragrances, this one revisits the celebrated Guerlinade. 
Crystalline Amber.
Intimate, sparkling, sensual.
The citrus honey accord leads into a second accord of Chinese magnolia, exalted by sambac jasmine and ylang-ylang, which lights up the amber accord. Full-bodied, generous and tender, the Extract is reinforced with powdery notes of iris and slightly spicy notes. 
Its bottle is cut from a luxurious and transparent block of glass. Crowned with a flat stopper, sculpted like a cabochon and engraved with the Guerlain logo, its shapes play with the contrast between the rectangle and curves."
