Maison Guerlain’s upcoming fragrance honors cherry blossom season

Guerlain‘s new Cherry Blossom Exceptional Piece is a tribute to the fragrance created in 1999 by Jean-Paul Guerlain. Encapsulated in cherry blossom motifs, the iconic Bee flacon has become a symbol of an annual age-old tradition, in which the Japanese gather to admire cherry blossoms every spring.

French Maison Guerlain presents the annual limited edition of their Cherry Blossom perfume that celebrates springtime in Japan. Cherry Blossom 2022 Millésome is available from the start of February 2022 in a special limited edition flacon design, this time decorated with the help of French-based Japanese fine embroidery artist Kyoko Sugiura, who is no stranger to the know-hows of both her country and France.

The artist decorated the iconic ‘Bee’ flacon by hand with silver and black flowers that feature black beads. Leather petals in shades of gold, black and white adorn the flacon. Elsewhere, five-needle sewn petals are found on the flacon, a number that represents the flower.

Black pearls are subsequently embroidered with a needle to create the stamens, which are embellished with golden pearls. A ribbon rounds off the piece, which is sewn on tulle with a crocheted black thread. The black ribbon around the neck and a black label symbolize cherry blossoms that bloom at night.

The original Cherry Blossom perfume was first launched in 1999. Its composition is based on the essence of cherry blossoms with notes of green tea and almonds. It was made by Guerlain’s 4th generation perfumer Jean-Paul Guerlain, inspired by the ‘hanami’ Japanese custom of celebrating spring.

Top notes: bergamot, green tea note
Heart: cherry blossom, jasmine, lilac
Base: white musk

This years edition has remained unchanged: it is still an incredibly delicate soliflore, a child of the ’90s, which combines the sea freshness of calone, and draws the contours of a tart, bitter citrus-tea chord and the tenderness of a floral-fruity chord with sour lychee and a drop of indole. It’s as if in the distance there are mock orange blossoms. In the base, you can feel a slight powderiness of musks and almonds, which does not overshadow the fresh, transparent mood of the fragrance for a second.

Guerlain Cherry Blossom 2022 Millésime is limited to just 2,605 pieces, and it retails for €600. It will be available a 125 ml Eau de Toilette flacon at Guerlain Boutiques and selected stores worldwide, and comes with a funnel and 20ml purse spray in a white leather case. Come into the beautiful world of Guerlain.
