The following fragrances, all created by Jacques Guerlain and reconstituted by Jean Paul Guerlain, will be reissued: Kadine (1911), Sous Le Vent (1933), Cachet Juane (1937), Vega (1936) and Ode (1955).
7 fragrances created by Jean Paul Guerlain will be reissued, all in Eau de Parfum: Quand Vient l’Eté, Metalys (originally Metallica), Liu, Philtre d’Amour, Derby, Guerlinade, Attrape-Coeur (originally Guet Apens), and Purple Fantasy. Another Jean Paul Guerlain creation, Chant d’Arômes, will be available in Parfum.
There will also be a new line of fragrances called “L’Art et la Matière”, described as “a laboratory where each ‘nose’ can freely express passion for an original, precious raw material”. The first offerings from this line will be:
Rose Barbare, by Francis Kurkdjian, “a heady, incisive Ottoman rose (aldehydes) over a modern structure of honey-chypree notes”.
Angélique Noire by Daniela Andrièr, “a composition based on angelica, well known to be an elixir promoting longevity. The bergamot and angelica notes are fresh, vibrant and slightly bitter. They contrast with the sophisticated fullness of the vanilla.”
Cuir Beluga by Olivier Polge, “a fragrance suggesting the absolute, contemporary luxury of leather. An initial burst of aldehydic mandarin orange, strengthened by everlasting flowers or immortelles, contributes a luminosity all its own, then merges into deeper, sophisticated notes of leather, amber, heliotrope and vanilla.”
The new Baby Guerlain scent will be available in a bottle which can be engraved with the child’s name, with a pink or blue ribbon attached.
The new boutique will have its grand opening on June 6. The design is by Andrée Putman, interior designer, and Maxime d’Angeac, architect.
