Eau de Cologne Impériale, Jicky, l’Heure Bleue, Mitsouko, Shalimar: these immortal classics of the fifth sense are landmarks in the remarkable history of the House of Guerlain.

Since its founding in 1828, Guerlain has created subtle compositions light years away from simple floral imitations. These fragrances invoke a mood in which romanticism and mystery are combinated, and have attracted a prestigious clientele that includes royalty and connoisseurs.

At the turn of the century, Aimé Guerlain, the creator of Jicky, composed the famous magic formula Guerlinade, a velvety, intoxicating alliance of rose, jasmine, vanilla and tonka bean, which has become the sensual hallmark of every creation, including the most recent ones. It is a note that stirs the emotions and embodies the spirit of a great perfumer and his legend.

The two-time winner of France’s prestigious prix Jasmin, Elisabeth Barillé knows everything when it comes to fashion and perfume. She tells the wonderful story of Guerlain and his beautiful and sometimes amazing perfume creations and captured them in this wonderful book. Not new, but like I said: A real must have for every Guerlain or perfume addict.
