Guerlain perfume is one of the oldest French perfume houses in the world and can easily hold its own in this day and age . Founded in 1828 by Pierre-Francois Pascal Guerlain control of the house was past down through the family until 1994 when it was sold to the luxury good conglomerate Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH) as there was no one in the Guerlain family willing to head the business. In its formative years Guerlain created signature fragrances for royalty as well as the aristocratic class.

The Guerlain stamp is an art of bottling that the Dames de table craftswomen pass down from generation to generation.. We love them.
Here are some more examples of the wonderfully imaginative bottles for some the main fragrances and a brief statement describing the essence…
Samsara signifies “eternal rebirth” in Sanskrit and is part of the “wheel of life”, a religious reference of Tibetan Buddhism. It evokes the perpetual voyage from one existence to the next, an invitation to serenity and harmony. Created in 1989 by Jean-Paul Guerlain, Samsara is a homage to the woman of his life, his true revelation of love.

A perfumed creation by Guerlain: An Eau Fraîche in which sparkling mandarin, rose petals and biting pistachio set hearts a flutter.
My legendary glass bottle – instantly recognisable by its rounded shoulders and stopper in the shape of an upside-down heart – reveals my new style of dress.
Insolence is a spark in the eyes, an intrepid smile. Insolence is a careless grace, an ironic elegance, an amused silence. Created in 2006, Insolence celebrates this surprising, free and daring femininity.
Aqua Allegoria is a continuously renewed collection that pays homage to the wonders of nature and beautiful raw materials. Delicate and cheerful fragrances that represent sweet and happy moments.
In 1919, Europe was fascinated by Japan and the culture of the Far East. This was the moment when Jacques Guerlain named his new fragrance Mitsouko. Mitsouko means “mystery” in Japanese and symbolises passionate and mysterious femininity.
Guerlain also have a classic range available with lots of different fragrances to choose from.
