Five generations of perfumers, from Pierre Francois Pascal Guerlain to Thierry Wasser, created real masterpieces.

Today, the brand produces perfumes and cosmetics, combining the experience of many years and modern technology. Guerlain takes care of the environment and its consumers, therefore it produces not only high-quality but also ecological cosmetics. The brand conducts constant research to improve existing products and create new innovative goods. Today you can buy Guerlain almost all over the world, and you can get positive feedback about Guerlain not only from world stars who have worked with the brand but even from kings and queens.
History of the Guerlain brand
In 1828, Guerlain was founded by Pierre Francois Pascal Guerlain, who dreamed of becoming a perfumer since childhood. He studied Chemistry in England to make his dream come true. At first, the brand existed as a pharmacy store in Paris. Guerlain sold beauty products imported from Britain there, and in the basement of the store he experimented with creating his own fragrances and skincare products. After entering the market new items from the Guerlain brand immediately began to be popular among wealthy ladies and members of royal families. Due to such rapid success, Guerlain moved to a new, larger store in the center of Paris.
It is known that a face cream made from strawberries was created specially for the Empress of Austria Sisi. Guerlain also became the personal perfumer of Empress Eugenie, wife of Napoleon III. Imperial cologne - the first men's fragrance in the brand's history was created for Napoleon Bonaparte. At the wedding of Napoleon III, Guerlain presented the Spanish princess the Imperial perfume, which he had created specially in honour of this event. The crystal bottle of the perfume was decorated with gilded reliefs of bees, which were the symbol of Napoleon's house. The princess awarded Guerlain the title of chief perfumer of the royal palace, and the golden bee has become the symbol of the House of Guerlain since that time.
Soon new Guerlain products have been created for celebrities such as Balzac and Sarah Bernhardt, as well as for the queens of England and Spain.
In 1864, after the death of Pierre Francois Pascal, Guerlain's business was headed by his sons Aimé and Gabrielle. Aimé Guerlain was inspired by foreign cultures and as a result created Violette d'Alger, United States and Perfume Fleur d'Italie. Aime Guerlain was the first who divided the smell of perfumes into three parts - top notes, heart notes and base notes.
In 1889, Aimé launched the first unisex fragrance - Guerlain Jicky. He was also the first perfumer who combined natural and synthetic ingredients in one bottle. This perfume was from the group of fougere fragrances, so at first it was used only by men. It became popular among women only 20 years later.
Aime Guerlain died in 1910, and his nephews Jacques and Pierre took over the business. Pierre ran the company and Jacques created the fragrances.
In 1912, Jacques Guerlain launched L'Heure Bleue in honor of his beloved. The perfume bottle was designed in Art Nouveau style and made by Baccarat craftsmen.
To create its fragrances Guerlain began to use flowers specially grown in the east of France in Grasse. This place is considered the capital of perfume art. The ingredients for perfumery grown in Grasse were of the highest quality. The production technology made it possible to preserve aromas in their original form and obtain long-lasting perfumes.
The women's perfume Guerlain Shalimar, released in 1925, was the most outstanding masterpiece from Jacques Guerlain. The creator was inspired by the love story of an Indian Shah and a concubine in Shalimar Gardens. Guerlain Shalimar was one of the first oriental fragrances at that time. This perfume remains at the top of the rankings of the most popular fragrances in the world today.
The grandson of Jacques Guerlain, Jean-Paul Guerlain, helped his grandfather in the art of perfumery from a young age and continued the family business after him. Since Jean-Paul Guerlain lost his sight as a child, he had a very well-developed sense of smell. He considered smells to be the main form of perception and knew more than 3,000 scents by heart.
Jean-Paul created the famous men's fragrance Guerlain Vetiver, which today is one of the ten most popular men's perfumes. In 1965, another sensation of that time was released - the Guerlain Habit Rouge fragrance for men. The perfumer also created women's fragrances: Guerlain Chant d'Aromes - he dedicated to his first wife, Samsara (in Sanskrit means "eternal rebirth") - to the second.
Jean-Paul Guerlain in 1994 sold his brand to LVMH (LVMH Moët Hennessy - Louis Vuitton), which is the owner of the Guerlain brand today. Jean-Paul Guerlain did not leave the company after it was sold. He created many popular fragrances with Guerlain's new Chief Perfumer Thierry Wasser. Jean-Paul Guerlain left the company only in 2002.
Since 2008, Thierry Wasser has been working on the creation of new Guerlain fragrances. He has developed his charm since childhood, collecting mountain herbs in a Swiss village. Thierry Wasser studied Botany and graduated from the Givaudan School of Perfumery. The perfumer travels a lot around the world in search of the finest natural ingredients to produce exciting new fragrances. He is inspired by nature and prefers field flowers, fruity and citrus accords, and floral nectar in his compositions.
Guerlain Insolence perfume, which is suitable for women of all ages, was released in 2006. Its feature is a radically opposite change in the fragrance's structure - base notes appear at first and after them come heart and top notes.
Guerlain Aqua Allegoria is a well-known perfume series, which now consists of about 30 fragrances. Among Guerlain Aqua Allegoria perfumes you will find fresh, light, delicate fragrances with floral, herbal and fruity accords. The same unchanging honeycombs have become the decoration of the bottles and packaging. The Guerlain Aqua Allegoria line is still replenished with new fragrances from Thierry Wasser, who constantly being in search of new natural ingredients during his travels.
Another famous fragrance for all women La Petite Robe Noire was released in 2012. The whole series of perfumes is a little black dress - the epitome of the natural chic of a Parisian - that women all over the world can "try on".
In 2017 Thierry Wasser created the famous Mon Guerlain perfume line. His muse was Angelina Jolie. Mon Guerlain fragrance reveals a new dimension of femininity, embodying the image of a modern woman who radiates cheerfulness and is not afraid of difficulties.
In addition, the brand is known not only for its perfumes. All Guerlain products also include skincare and make-up products.
Since 1828, Guerlain has also produced herbal care cosmetics. The combination of the gifts of nature, continuous scientific research and modern technology allow the brand to reveal the beauty and preserve the youth of women.
