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.

Colored Crystal Quadrilobe Bottles

In 2016, Guerlain introduced a line of limited edition crystal quadrilobe flacons in dazzling jewel like colors, inspired by the principle of synesthesia (the idea that color has a scent). Dubbed the Color Collection it is comprised of five bottles, each decorated with the fluffed barbichage tassel performed by hand by the Dames du Table. Each bottle retails for 650,00 €.

Looking to buy someone a personal gift? These bottles can also represent the various birthstones and would make an appropriate present for someone's birthday or anniversary.

Spiritueuse Double Vanille is housed in a fiery shade evocative of a Padparadscha sapphire.

The Padparadscha and blue sapphires correspond to the month of September and the Taurus zodiac sign.

Incidentally, the sapphire is given as a 65th wedding anniversary.

Santal Royal is housed in a verdant emerald green bottle.

Emerald is the birthstone for May, the stone for the star sign Cancer and is the traditional gift for a 20th wedding anniversary.

L'Heure de Nuit is dressed in the finest shade akin to a blue Kashmir sapphire.

The sapphire corresponds to the birth month of September and the stone for Taurus.

The sapphire is also a traditional gift for a 45th wedding anniversary.

Oriental Brulant is presented in a crystal flacon of the precious pigeon blood red Burmese ruby.

The ruby is representative of the month of July and is the stone for Capricorn.

The ruby is also given as a present for a 40th wedding anniversary.

L’Eau de Parfum du 68 is contained in a bicolor crystal shade recalling the purple and deep yellow of the ametrine (amethyst & citrine).

Though ametrine itself is not a birthstone it can be considered the birthstone of February, the birthstone of November or the Pisces birthstone because it is part amethyst, part citrine.

It could also be given for the 6th (amethyst) and 13th (citrine) wedding anniversaries.
