FRAGRANCE AS A WAY OF LIFE: A GUERLAIN TRADITION

Readily scenting handkerchiefs with ambrosia, jasmine or Reseda double extract, the elegant ladies of the Belle Epoque and France’s Second Empire were known for perfuming everything from linens to gloves and furs.
In wardrobes, India Vetiver fragranced sheets and shirts, while flannels were made available ready-scented with Guerlain’s L’Heure Bleue, Shalimar, Mitsouko or Jicky fragrances. Prized perfume burners diffused refined compositions of Le Bouquet de Fürstenberg across salons and boudoirs, while Baume de Judée balm was dispensed onto little hot shovels to vaporise and purify the air.
Boasting so many evocatively named products, since its start, “Guerlain, perfume distiller, rue de Rivoli” has meticulously blended the art of perfume with the art of living.
