It seems Guerlain is having an Olfactory carnival. After its master perfumer announced My Exclusive Collection, here is another batch of fragrances in the Colour Collection Flacon Quadrilobé. It features five fragrances which is “a response to the challenge of creating associations and synthesis between certain colors and scents”.
Five fragrances, five ingredients, five scents, five colours, five precious gems, each coming in a luxurious amethyst box with the Guerlain symbol of the sun.
The gemstone-colored bottles contain five different fragrances selected from the Les Exclusifs collection.
L’Heure de Nuit (2012) pays a modern homage to the legendary L’Heure Bleue fragrance. Its scent features orange blossom, vanilla, heliotrope, iris, sandalwood and musk. Oriental Brûlant (2008) is “a cocktail” of herbs, almond, tonka bean and carnal balms. Santal Royal (2014) uses Oriental woods with emerald green with the scents of sandalwood, jasmine, rose, leather and oud. Spiritueuse Double Vanille (2007) comes in an amber colored bottlewith a scent that combines rum, cedar, vanilla and herbs. L’Eau de Parfum du 68 (2013) comes in amethyst, a combination of red and blue, and has a scent that combines rose, spices, heliotrope, cedar, leather and benzoin.
The Quadrilobé association goes back to 1908 when it was first created by Baccarat in 1908 for Jacques Guerlain’s perfume Rue de la Paix. It is now produced by Verreries Brosse for private and exclusive collections.
The Colour Collection Flacon Quadrilobé perfumes will be available from June at the Guerlain boutique at Place Vendome in bottles of 125 ml priced at $726.
