    The Guerlain house is a legendary French perfume house founded by Pierre-François Pascal Guerlain in 1828. Starting with common hygiene products, Guerlain began creating perfumes for his customers, and over time the business developed into a highly successful company that became an official perfumer for several European royal courts.

    Guerlain has always used luxurious and rare materials for its fragrances, such as French vanilla or ylang-ylang from their own plantations in Comoro Islands. Guerlain was also an innovator in their use of synthetic materials: Jicky (1889) was the first perfume to which Aimé Guerlain, son of Pierre-François Pascal, added the synthetic component, coumarin.

    The perfume house is rooted in the family’s tradition as the main perfumer from its inception to 2002 was a Guerlain family member. Following Aimé Guerlain, his nephew, Jacques Guerlain became the main perfumer. Finally, Jacques’ grandson, Jean-Paul, took over until his retirement in 2002.

    Guerlain fragrances have a unique olfactory signature which stems from the House’s favourite ingredients: Rose, Iris, Vanilla, Tonka bean, Bergamot and Jasmine.​ Their fragrances are inspired by nature and its infinite beauty, specifically Bees, which has become part of their iconic Bee Bottle. The bee is an important piece of Guerlain’s history as Pierre-François Pascal Guerlain was entrusted to create a perfume for Emperor Napoleon III. The bottle was then designed after his majesty’s coat of arms, the bee and a festoon pattern. The bees now guide Guerlain and their commitments to sustainability due to their endangered status.

    Iconic Guerlain perfumes include the Aqua Allegoria collection, L'Homme Idéal, Insolence, Shalimar and La Petite Robe Noire.
