Hello and welcome! Please understand that this website is not affiliated with Guerlain in any way, it is only a reference site for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by. All trademarks belong to their respective owners. The main objective of this website is to chronicle the 200+ year old history of the Guerlain fragrances and showcase the bottles and advertising used throughout the years. Let this site be your source for information on antique and vintage Guerlain perfumes. Another goal of this website is to show the present owners of the Guerlain company how much we miss many of the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances! I invite you to 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 on what occasion, what it smelled like to you, how it made you feel, 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. If you have any questions, please send all images of your bottle and pertinent information directly to me at cleopatrasboudoir@gmail.com. I will try to assist you the best I can.

Guerlain added its first Eau de Parfum in 1990 with Samsara and the men's fragrance Heritage. The Eau de Parfums replaced the Parfum de Toilettes for nearly all of Guerlain's scents for men and women.

Le Sucrier de Madame c1980 - 2008?

Le Sucrier de Madame (Madam's Sugar Shaker/Muffineer) was made for express usage in the Guerlain boutiques to demonstrate the eau de toilettes. Sometimes they were often given as "rewards" to those who spent an exorbitant amount of money in the French boutiques. The cases are of gilded brass and the domed tops are intricately pierced in a filigree pattern featuring the Guerlain G, hearkening back to the ornate muffineers of the 19th century. The bottle was designed by jeweler Robert Gossen. Each bottle holds 200ml/6.7 oz of eau de toilette. I have seen these marked Chamade, Shalimar, Parure, Nahema, Chant D'Aromes, Chamade, Apres l'Ondee, Mitsouko, L'Heure Bleue, Vol de Nuit, Samsara and Jicky. Others are not marked with a name. Each case held a bottle that when emptied, a new refill could be recharged into the case. In 2008, a Guerlain SA told a member of beaute-test.com that the manufacturer of the Sucrier flacons had just passed away and the flacons would be discontinued as he was the sole manufacturer. Whether not this is true, please let me know.

Habit de Fete c1965 - Present

Guerlain released the Habit de Fete flacon cases in several different styles. The first style was introduced in 1965, known as the Delft atomizer, it was for various standard Guerlain eau de colognes and the thin metal cases were decorated with different enameled motifs, these bottles held 96ml.

The next style replaced the Delft atomizers and was rectangular, goldtone and had a pierced basketweave or lattice design, it was introduced in 1982 and used up until 1989, these thin metal cases held refills for eau de toilettes and in 1987, the parfum de toilettes.

Although there are several styles of these refillable containers, they all fit the same size and shape of refills:
  • 50ml/1.7 oz Eau de Parfum 
  • 93ml/3.14 oz Eau de toilette 
  • 8ml/0.25 oz parfum extrait 
As the millenium approached, Guerlain wanted an updated flacon for their refills, the case is goldtone and studded with silvertone and coppertone bubbles. The eau de parfum bottle is shorter, wider and flatter, while the eau de toilette is taller, thinner and round.
  • Habit De Fete Eau de Parfum Spray Refill 1.69fl oz 
  • Habit De Fete Eau de Toilette Spray Refill 3.1fl oz 
  • Habit De Fete Perfume Spray Refill 0.27fl oz

Les Meteorites 

In the mid 1980s, Guerlain had the idea to create the Les Meteorites Collection.The collection was made up of gilded metal and colorful cloisonne enameled containers that could be refilled. "The Meteorites stand for GUERLAIN's exclusive style". 

Les Meteorites refillable natural spray limited edition from Guerlain Paris-15 ml Parfum de Toilette . The shape of the vaporizer is reminiscent of the forebearer's fob watch. Both sides are covered with the intricate, multi colored, rosette-shaped "cloisonne" enamel. The Les Meteorites Collection included small round 15ml purse spray flacons which could be recharged by inserting a new inner flacon of perfume. The scents available at the time were Shalimar, L'Heure Bleue, Mitsouko, Jicky, Chamade and Chant D'Aromes.

The products in the METEORITES line have established a prestigious reputation thanks to their unique design linking tradition and innovation.Ten lipsticks, a compact mirror and three face powder shades helped to round out the collection. In 2000, Guerlain released Les Meteorites, a powdery violet and iris based perfume.

Dusting Powder 1955-Present

Guerlain's Dusting Powder was introduced around 1955 housed in a faux tortoiseshell plastic powder box, then inside of a white plastic powder box in the 1960s and 1970s, then in a turquoise plastic powder box in the 1983, then a plastic powder box in a coordinating color of the fragrance it contained, starting in the late 1990s, and is still being sold today.

Creme Hydratante c1959-1967?

Guerlain's Creme Hydratante introduced in 1959, a lanolin based moisturizer, lightly scented and meant to be lavished all over the body, particularly on arms and legs. Still sold around 1967.

Body Shampoo c1976- Present

Guerlain's Body Shampoo was released in 1976, it came in three scents at that time, starting with Shalimar.

Les Voluptes du Bain c1983- 1999

Guerlain released their fragrances ancillary products in turquoise plastic packaging starting in 1983, this line was known as Les Voluptes du Bain de Guerlain and sold til 1999, when the products were given a makeover with a more sensual shape.

  1. Nice share..
    I am using Parure Guerlain for women. The fragrance features plum, bergamot, green notes; lily of the valley, and I liked it very much.. This reminded me of a spring summer garden after a rain storm , wish they still made it.

  2. Once (30 years ago) I bought a vintage Guerlain wicker bottle with Eau de Toilette ( I think it was called so, I lost the paper label) in an antique shop in Vienna. I loved it, and never found it again. Do you know this Eau de Toilette or Guerlain, from when was it? Greeting!

  3. I have 2 vintage Jicky Eau De Toilettes with Lalique stoppers, only 1/2 used, large 500ml bottle & 250ml, can you give me an idea of what they are worth & if they are rare & where I could sell them, thank you.

  4. Hi, it sounds like you have the old Eau de Toilette flacons with the frosted glass stoppers, known as the Goutte Flacons. These were not made by Lalique. You can look at the Flacon List to see these and get an idea of their age. Also, at the top of the web page, I have an appraisal service available if you need valuations. Thanks,

  5. Hello. I have an 8oz Clock flacon with the glass stopper. The center circle is filled in with (I'm assuming) fake pearls and diamonds mostly. There are 4 ruby like gems in the very center setting of the circle holding a larger diamond. Would you know what perfume it is and this flacon's worth (empty)?

    1. Hi, this was someone's craft project or idea of upcycling. I often find craft projects like this with different perfume bottles. As it is, there is no value, I am sorry to say. You cn add some flowers to make it a cute bud vase!

  6. Lot of good accurate information. Thanks.

  7. There is also an 80 ml. Djedi, which measures 9 cm. or 3.5". Thank you. Alexandra

  8. Nice list! I am only missing the round flacons of Terracotta Eau de Toilette and Meteorites Eau de Toilette. Maybe its a good idea to add these bottle to complete this.

    Keep on the good work!


  9. Hello,

    Great blog. A wealth of information Guerlain.

    I’m curious about a miniature Guerlain Shalimar I’ve has for a time. The classic flacon chauve souris but in blue with a clear stopper. The approximate height of the flacon is 4”. On the bottom of foot appears: ‘GUERLAIN BOTTLE MADE IN FRANCE.’ I have searched the internet in vain for this flacon colour but only seem to find clear with a blue stopper. I do encounter the contemporary versions of blue flacons but the stoppers are a totally different style. I did manage to locate an larger version of my flacon, the accompanying text cites that this is an EDT concentration? Is there anyone that can shed light on my mystery blue flacon? It’s volume in fl. oz./ml.? Is this uncommon/rare? Is the empty flacon valuable?

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanking you in adavance.

    John D.

    1. hi, can you please send me photos of your bottle at cleopatrasboudoir@gmail.com

  10. Beautiful perfume bottles! I never had a mind to collect something, just use and dispose. What a shame!

  11. The "flacon brun fumé" also held the (now extremely rare) fragrance Loin de Tout from 1933.

  21. Wasn't there a bottle wrapped in a woven ratan cover that was a hexagonal weave? Or is that from some other fragrance company?

  31. In the early 90’s I was foolish enough to not buy Shalimar in a beautiful cobalt blue bottle in an elegant silver(?)gold filigree outer sleeve. It was a cylindrical bottle in the 6”-8” height range. I’d be happy to just see a photo of it, but have been searching for it ever since, and kicking myself along the way!

    And I can’t believe I didn’t preserve my white and blue enameled spray Shalimar after hanging on to it empty for years. So beautiful!

  50. Wonderful photos. What I couldn't find was the rectangular flatter version of those Les Meterorites brass coloured holders/bottles, that my Mitsouko used to come in. I found a photo on one site but there is little mention of it anywhere on the web. It was my first holiday to Jersey (and their duty free department stores!) and my first bottle of Mistouko, which I still wear.

  51. Hi, I have a cobalt blue bottle with gold decoration & Guerlain written in gold on the front at the bottom, it isn’t one that I’ve seen before. Looks to be Victorian. Would love some info on it if anyone can help?
