Guerlain Parfum du 68 ~ new fragrance

Guerlain Parfum du 68

Guerlain will launch Parfum du 68 in conjunction with the renovation of their flagship location on the Champs Elysées in Paris, due to be completed next month. Parfum du 68 is a "reworking" of 2006's Cologne du 68.

Parfum du 68 was developed by Guerlain house perfumer Thierry Wasser, and features notes of spices, everlasting flower, tonka bean, benzoin, incense and leather.

Guerlain Parfum du 68 will be available in Eau de Parfum, bottle pictured, size unknown. There will also be a limited edition (30 pieces made) black crystal Baccarat "turtle" bottle.

    Are all of these new Guerlain releases dupes?

    • Robin says:

      This one is not like the last 2 we announced…that is, it isn’t a “one off” for a special location. So I’m going to assume this is just what it says it is — a reworked version of Cologne du 68.

  2. eaudemale says:

    Sexy bottle there that crystal with make a huge different.

    • Robin says:

      You mean this bottle is sexy, or the crystal bottle would be sexy? This is the one that is NOT Baccarat.

  3. lovethescents says:

    I am REALLY looking forward to trying this, since I first read about the release in the tortue bottle in the Guerlain magazine. I have a tad of Parfum des Champs Elysees. I wonder how this one will compare?

    • Robin says:

      I’d like to smell it too…I like Cologne du 68.

  4. songeuse says:

    To me the bottle looks rather Hermès-like, but without the rounded cap.

  5. Oakland Fresca says:

    Candy Perfume Boy has a picture of the black Baccarat bottle

    Looks like a giant Godiva chocolate or a wee flask of Cognac to me… who do you imagine will purchase the 30?
