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.

International Perfume Bottle Association's 25th Anniversary - Limited Edition Shalimar

Special edition created exclusively for the International Perfume Bottle Association's 25th Anniversary. Familiar white bee bottle adorned with a gilded necklace with lapis cabochon pendants wrapped around the neck. A shiny gold foil label commemorates the club's success. This was a limited piece of only 20 examples given to members. This edition is nearly identical to the 2012 limited edition collector's bottle called the Imperial Bijoux de Shalimar, which also sported the lapis pendants.

The International Perfume Bottle Association (IPBA) is an organization of collectors of perfume bottles and related fragrance items covering all time periods from antiquity to the present. It is a 501c3 nonprofit corporation. It is run by an elected Board of Directors, who are all volunteers. The purpose of the IPBA is to provide information about all aspects of this collecting field including identification, uses, history, and manufacture, and to promote fellowship among members. The IPBA represents education, collecting and camaraderie. All members, whether beginners or experienced collectors, are greatly welcome.

IPBA member collectors and dealers from the U.S. and overseas embrace all aspects of this wonderful art form—early American and European, Victorian, French and American Commercials, Minis, Art Nouveau and Art Deco atomizers, Czechoslovakian, Art Glass, Novelties, and others. In addition, related categories of vanity items (such as powder compacts, lipsticks, and ladies purses) are included.
