About the Brand
Elegance, opulence, sophistication, the House of Guerlain has garnered many names in its over 180 years of existence. The first Guerlain boutique opened by Pierre-François-Pascal Guerlain in 1828 met instant success, as the products were both revolutionary and none like the market had ever seen. Guerlia went on to create the first even scientific formulation in eyeliner, mascara, kohl, lipstick and skincare product lines. It was donned by Queen Victoria, Napoleon III and other who's who worldwide later on, and the perfume house needed no further validation from there on. The trade secrets of the House of Guerlain have passed down many generations, just as its classic 19th-century creations that remain relevant to this day. Today, with over 325 fragrances under its name, Guerlain continues to reign supreme in the luxury perfume industry, the signature Guerlinade is not looking at fading out anytime soon.
