This range aims to express the multiple facets of a certain modern femininity, through three Eaux de Parfum and two Eaux de Toilette.

Indeed, this Intense Eau de Parfum, is composed by this rare vanilla essence, often used by Guerlain, which confers an exotic intensity to the entire fragrance.

For the gentlemen, Guerlain also proposed them a masculine creation, developed by the famous House perfumers Thierry Wasser and Delphine Jelk. In order to pursue this L’Homme Idéal successful collection, a different identity was given to this brand new variation. Although the other items of this category, were either tainted of citrus, leather and even spicy, this Eau de Toilette brings some elegance and masculinity in this flacon, in which the light green water gives an accent of an embodied coolness.

The result is a woody and fresh fragrance baptized L’Homme Idéal Cool, resulting of a real olfactive expertise contributing to enhance L’Homme Idéal‘s signature.

Here you would find a refreshing cocktail to easily start the day with mediterranean contents, such as the bergamot, mint, orange and the star anise. Those herbs extracts are mixed with sensual influences, included in the almond, neroli and by other aquatic notes. The last but not least contribution would associate the solution in a final elegant accord, thanks to ambroxan, vetiver and patchouli…

The Guerlain Exclusive Collection proposes a selection of fine fragrances for perfume enthusiasts who are particularly sensitive to noble materials, refinement and a sharp sense of detail. This collection welcomes new rare perfumes. Those are gathered under the L’Art et la Matière fragrance line. Each of those niche perfumes magnify a precious raw material to make it a sophisticated and exclusive fragrance.

Indeed, L’Art et la Matière collection includes 7 fragrances: the fancy notes of Cruel Gardenia, the Bulgarian Barbarian Rose, the unmissable French Angélique Noire, the Double Vanilla Spirits from Madagascar, Armenia Wood from Laos, Tonka Imperial beans from Venezia and moreover the softer notes from the Beluga Leather. Those flacons are all Eaux de Toilette, whose bottles are all adorned with the name of the perfume in engraved letters, as well as a medallion of the Sun King, to accentuate the prestigious facet of the collection.

Lately came in L’Art et la Matière series, the new Embruns d’Ylang fragrance. Mainly inspired by the ylang-ylang spirit, that had “only rarely held the leading role or even got a headliner in a perfume”, according to Guerlain. Indeed, in order to celebrate this new first role of this exotic flower, the House nez, Thierry Wasser chose a ylang-ylang essence from the Comoros. Its spicy facets are underlined by some clove influences, although its strong personality contrasts with the woody notes, maybe to make this exception perfume, more complex than just a classic floral flacon.

The Embruns d’Ylang is a rich, sensual floral and made of a certain fresh scent, in which the creamy ylang-ylang plays the lead role.While trying this new Guerlain‘s creation for the first time,you would rather perceive a fresh perfume infused with notes of subtly iodized honey and spicy notes. This elixir evokes the last monsoon upheavals, on a field of unctuous exotic floral elements, from far exotic horizons

 Embruns d’Ylang , you would rather perceive a fresh perfume than a dense tropical floral scent. The unctuous floral element, from far exotic horizons, differs from the previous creations made with white flowers.

The spicy accord of this exotic fragrance mostly relies on cardamom and liquorice, which form an interesting contrast with the fresh notes. The background notes contain sandalwood tones, mostly reminiscent of the classic Guerlain‘s touch.

Thierry Wasser worked hard to create this innovative but authentic flower scent, instead of settling for a more intensified version with synthetic ingredients or even a more sparkling version with citrus, that would deviate from this Exclusive Collection spirit.

Available exclusively in Guerlain‘s Paris boutiques or on the e-store

Solemnizing the 5th anniversary of the Santal Royal fragrance with a new arty flacon is a performance for Guerlain. In this occasion, the House trusted the Moroccan artist Tarek Benaoum to reinterpret the emblematic Bee Bottle, symbol of the longtime Guerlain heritage since 1853 and still conceived by Pochet et Courval, the historical glassmaker of the House.
Since this oriental fragrance is mainly made of santal wood, but also jasmine, rose and oud, the spirit of this artwork had to be related to this Arabian Nights universe. This was made possible, while creating wandering hybrid letters into a mix of a lapis lazuli blue tainted with gold letters, this calligrapher artist turns his name into a nearly encrypted script. Entirely hand painted, each piece is different and therefore unique. Thus, only 22 numbered bottles are available worldwide, in a 1L exclusively decorated flacon.
The Table Ladies present at Guerlain Workshops bring the final touch to this timeless 1-liter Bee Bottle, by tying delicate blue and gold cords around its collar. Each box is also hand-signed in gold by the artist.

The first issues are available at La Maison Guerlain flagshipstore, located in the famous 68, Champs-Elysées Avenue.
