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.

Le Bol de Savon

Le Bol de Savon, a shaving soap in a bowl is shown below. The piece most likely dates from 1920s-1950s. The lid features a sun with wavy rays. The "bowl" measures 7" in diameter and stands about 3.5" in height. The total weight is about 3 lbs. The soap itself is molded with "Bol de Guerlain Paris". The last photo is the underside of the lid.

In this 1926 advertisement for Guerlain's bath goods, you can see an image of the bol de savon to the right.
