Brand Story

The GUERLAIN perfume house was founded in Paris in 1828 by Pierre-François-Pascal GUERLAIN, who opened the first boutique in the heart of the French capital, at 42, rue de Rivoli, where sophisticated women quickly head about his fragrant creations and beauty products.
180 years later, five generations of perfumers have succeeded one another in holding the creative reins, conjuring over 800 fragrances, including a number of timeless successes. Thierry Wasser is the current GUERLAIN Perfumer. He continues GUERLAIN’s bold tradition in combing the world for the most exclusive raw materials.
This sense of daring also permeates the make-up ranges, drawing on unique expertise to reveal and enhance women’s true beauty. The brand’s Iconic creations are fuelled by the imagination of its Creative Director, Olivier Echaudemaison.
The same audacious approach drives GUERLAIN Research, extracting the best nature has to offer in terms of inspiration and raw materials to create remarkable skincare products through a unique alchemy of nature and science.
Since 1828, GUERLAIN has continued to pursue an insatiable quest for the beautiful. La Petite Robe Noire, Shalimar, Habit Rouge, Terracotta, Météorites, Orchidée Impériale and Abeille Royale are just a few shining examples of this aesthetic exploration, embodied by an iconic showcase: 68, Champs-Elysées. A legendary address for a unique brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely gift for me. Excellent quality I purchased shalimar perfume and am delighted with it. The amount of people who have admired the aroma are indeed numerous, well done John Lewis 26 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Classic Perfume What can I say other than that my wife was delighted with this gift. She has been a Guerlain fan for a number of years and this classic fragrance is perhaps her favourite. Can recommend it to any man wanting to show his love (and taste !) to his partner 08 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm, sensual and classy My signature scent: I've worn this pretty much every day ever since using my mum's in the '80s. It's not a pungent smell that fills a room, but (I think) stays pretty close. I so often am complimented for smelling great when I lean in close to greet people. It doesn't work on everybody, which makes it feel all the more personal and special. Spray it in the morning and you'll still smell it in the evening. Spray it for a night out and you're clothes will still smell divine the next day. Somehow, this perfume smells even more incredible when wearing wool - it just seems to intensify the smell and helps make it linger all the more! Also smells great when sprayed in hair. 29 November 2015
