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.

Guerlain Bath Salts Bottle c1920s

This 7" tall, clear glass, square shaped bottle was used to hold bath salts. The stopper was molded into the shape of a cup, so that you could precisely measure the amount of recommended salt crystals to be poured into your bath water. Some people have confused this bottle with being an eye wash container and eye bath. The base of the bottle is molded with "Guerlain France Paris".

You can see the exact image shown in a 1924 Park & Tilford advertisement for Guerlain talc and bath salts. The top of the stopper looks kinda funny as the sealing membrane is covering the cup and making it slightly hard to see in the ad. Also, note that in the advertisement, the bath salts were available in only the L'Heure Bleue and Rue de la Paix scents at the time of printing. The frosted glass talcum powder bottle was available in Mitsouko, L'Heure Bleue, Rue de la Paix and Guerlinade.
