Guerlain celebrates its 190th anniversary with another Baccarat masterpiece

To celebrate its 190th anniversary, Guerlain has joined forces with Baccarat to create a spectacular exceptional piece.

The pencil of the Place Vendôme jeweller Lorenz Bäumer has created a masterful design that beautifully enhances the House’s icon: faceted like a diamond, a majestic bee levitates in a crystal cell in pure, clear lines whose flanks are ridged with wild grass.

For this exceptional anniversary, Guerlain’s Master Perfumer Thierry Wasser has created a fragrance by way of celebration. Like its bottle pairing heritage –based know-how with innovative craftsmanship, it combines – in an unprecedented Double Absolute concentration – contemporary top notes of orange, orange blossom and almond with a more traditional Guerlinade in the base notes, featuring benzoin tincture, sandalwood and ylang-ylang.

Since they were founded, the two Houses have shared a passion for beautiful objects and the desire to keep unique know- how alive. To embody the perfumer’s inspiration, Baccarat has taken an incredibly ingenious approach and created extraordinary bottles for Guerlain, some of which are real technological feats.

From the voluptuous Quadrilobé bottle dedicated to Jicky to the revolutionary Shalimar, these symbolic bottles have beautifully enhanced Guerlain’s fragrance creations, helping to give these fragrances iconic status.

Today, Baccarat and Guerlain are continuing their collaboration, regularly releasing exceptional pieces in the Exclusives family. Showcased in unique creations such as the Eternal Bee or the rerelease of Guerlain’s iconic bottles, Baccarat crystal magnifies the perfumer’s art. Bespoke Fragrances, a long- standing service provided by Guerlain, are also presented in crystal Quadrilobé bottles.
