Every year since 2006, Muguet by Guerlain blossoms once again on May 1st (traditionally the day when muguet is offered as a porte-bonheur, a good luck charm in France) comes in a luxurious limited edition. This event within the Exclusive Collections gives the House the opportunity to celebrate spring.
Greener, pinker, even more cheerful… Muguet 2016 by Guerlain is being reinvented with a new Eau de Toilette, a bright, refreshing homage to the lucky little bell.
The lily of the valley flower does not reveal its secrets easily. Not lending itself to extraction, its delicate scent must be recreated by the perfumer according to his poetic vision: powdery iris by Jacques Guerlain from 1908, or tinged with sun-kissed notes by Jean-Paul Guerlain in 1998.
Today, Thierry Wasser offers it a radiantly natural and modern interpretation. Fine and exuberant green notes to bring out its springlike accents. Rose beaded with dew to enhance its freshness. Subtly sensual jasmine as a reminder that reawakening nature sends the senses into a spin… Muguet exudes all the poetic vitality of a spring landscape.
Every year, the best French artisans and master craftsmen are invited to express their vision of the good-luck flower through their expertise. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Muguet by Guerlain, a budding young Parisian jewellery house specialising in metalwork – Ambre & Louise – is offering Muguet by Guerlain its exceptional finery.
To decorate the precious 2016 Vintage, the House of Ambre & Louise has created a real jewel of a bottle: a fine chased silver-dipped plaque, which depicts a bucolic and botanical design beautifully enhancing delicate sprigs of lily of the valley. A bottle in pure and slender lines illuminates this elegant motif, against the background of a tender green fragrance.
The final touch of refinement is the lidadorned with a frosted drop bead inscribed with the House’s double Gand a neck decorated with a whit ribbon by Guerlain’s dames de table. The ultimate lucky charm, the Muguet by Guerlain plaque may also be engraved.
