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.

Customized Fragrances

From Guerlain:
"During his long career as a perfumer Jacques Guerlain has continued to create fragrances for the evening or for a single person. Today Guerlain revives the art of customization and offers custom perfume. Aided and abetted by Sylvaine Delacourte, Director of Development Perfumes, one who wants to develop her own fragrance will first be invited to experience a sensory poly. Sylvaine Delacourte offers a real journey into the heart of the olfactory memory in which different phases are closely related to the senses. 
Everything begins with the word, tell her olfactory memories, emotions of a child. It scans the landscape, shapes, colors for a map of personal taste. And an array of ribbons, fabrics of different colors flow from one box ... after having caressed it must choose its favorite. The end of this first interview ended with the surrender of a small notebook fragrant.This booklet records the highlights is the form of a book which contains photos, drawings and mouillettes impregnated.

Two or three months later, Sylvaine Delacourte this secret a box which contains the main elements discussed at the first interview. Small bottles contain a square of fabric, a color map, a landscape, an agreement ... This rare gift is actually the incarnation of the olfactory memory of the person. Meanwhile, Sylvaine will choose perfumer who will entrust the creation of perfume. Within three months, it will carry out tests, fitting to adjust the formula on the skin like a haute couture gown. 
Today, Guerlain is returning to customised creations. It is a dream come true: you can have your own perfume, created to reflect your desires and aspirations throughout your life. Its formula will belong to only one person, its owner… 
The perfume will be presented in a 500ml Baccarat bottle with a sublime quatrefoil design. They will also receive three 30ml bottles and twenty 60ml bottles, all with the four-lobe design, containing a total of two litres of Eau de Parfum, equivalent to five years of consumption."

"For those who have no time to devote to creating a fragrance, Guerlain offers the Private Collection, a series of unique creations that cover the main olfactory families. When a woman chooses, she will own formula that will never be shown to someone else. 
The fragrance will be replaced by a new range in the Private Collection. Let us lift the veil on some of them:

Rhythm as a musical fantasy, Flower of the East is a sumptuous bouquet of white flowers including agreements accompanying body movements.

The "Collection Privée"

From Guerlain:
"With a total creative freedom, the Collection Privée offers original creations, composed, down to the tiniest detail, with the virtuosity of a Michelin-starred chef. 
The secret recipe of these perfumes will be kept in the strictest confidence. With the exception of the person who becomes its exclusive owner, no one will be told its formula and no member of the general public will have access to it. Discovering the jewels of the Collection Privée is a privilege. Only a few GUERLAIN experts in the world offer these treasures. Once a scent is adopted, it disappears from the collection. 
Each fragrance of the Collection Privée comes in two liters, packaged in the famous historic “four-lobed” bottles of Maison GUERLAIN, made of Baccarat crystal."

Perfumes for the Home



From Guerlain:

"Scented blossoms in the air, a beautiful aesthetic appropriates objects. The interior perfumes accept their personalities on a candle signed Putman, reassuring curves to spray and incense sticks. 
Bois des Indes (Indian Woods) An intense journey to the sacred heart of India. Another place that transports you into the cool air of an agreement of crushed leaves revived by the sparkle fruity rhubarb. The mild sweetness of sandalwood weaves jasmine petals on a bed of vanilla.

Contes Tahitiens (Tahitian Tales) Vibrate to the beat of exotic scents of the islands ... Reminiscent of lush shores where time languished, Tales Tahitians breathes like a whirlwind of sunflowers sweet tiare of fresh guava, which capsized on the creamy sweetness of sandalwood Marquesas and sensuality of vanilla Raiatea. 
Boudoir Venitien (Venetian Boudoir) In the intimate Italian, Venetian Boudoir is a tribute to the warm interior and baroque. The intimacy of a cozy alcove nimbus of a tender and sweet scent that starts on blackcurrant. The Parma violet then whispers its secrets to the rich leather of Cordova, in a cloud of scent of rice powder. 
Hiver en Russie (Winter in Russia) Shivering at the sumptuous palace Slavic Frosty. Contrast between the warmth of golden domes and snow white ... It gets inside and discovers a mystical fragrance from precious woods and incense. Gradually, the warm amber reassurance and shuddered at the touch of clove exploding overwhelming sensuality. Recollecting the pleasure of dazzling palaces and the luxuriousness of Russia under the Tsars. The perfumed tea of a samovar gets together with the smell of wax. The precious ashes enriched with myrrh illustrate the gold churches' mystic splendor.
