If you ever wondered what it was like to live like a queen, here’s your chance to find out. Guerlain’s legendary “Jar of Bees” is back to make you feel like an Empress, Eugenie, to be specific. Originally created for her, the wife of Napoleon III, the emblematic bottle has been revived in all its golden glory to celebrate its 160th anniversary.

A limited range of the Guerlain exclusive fragrances have been bottled in the 24-carat ‘Golden Bee’. In addition, Guerlain, in collaboration with the Institut National des Métiers d’, Art, has commissioned nine Masters artisans to recreate perfume history. Nine works of art inspired by the signature bottle have been designed to denote the supreme symbol of French luxury.

In recognition of it, he received the highest imperial title, “His Imperial Majesty’s Official Perfume Maker,” which catapulted him to the top of the perfume-making peak.
