Guerlain LUI. A famous fragrance in perfume history. Because of the unique scent, and because of the unique bottle.
Now Maison Guerlain is launching a new perfume version of LUI, which will satisfy both men and women. From French language, LUI means she/his.
Feminine. Masculine. Why choose? LUI is a perfume that loves to stir up trouble. Neither totally feminine nor truly masculine, it is both at once. Guerlain is inspired by a generation that is free from the norms of the genre, and has the idea of a decidedly universal perfume.
Guerlain LUI is announced as a floral, woody and spicy scent. The creation is signed by the perfume duo of Thierry Wasser and Delphine Jelk. The two of them wanted to surprise with an unexpected scent that mixes genres and creates a new one; LUI strives to be ambivalent and complex, but unique and singular in its “alchemy” that is revealed on the skin.
Top notes: pear, clove
Heart: benzoin, carnation
Base: leather, vanilla, musk, smoke
The composition focuses on an accord of benzoin, in its complexity and its different facets. It opens with pear, cloves along with benzoin and spicy carnation notes. The base calms on a woody layer made of leather, vanilla, musk and smokey leather.
The beautiful Art Deco bottle is elegant, black and lacquered, reminiscent of a Chinese tea box from the 18th century. It relies on the aesthetics of the Guerlain legacy and lends the style and anagram of the name of the floral-aldehyde fragrance LUI, which was created by Jacques Guerlain in 1929.
Guerlain LUI is available as 50ml Eau de Parfum.
