Never ceasing to dare and innovate and doing so with the same unfaltering rigour, the relaunched Guerlain L’Art & La Matière colleciton is an impassioned celebration of fragrance-made art. In this exciting scent laboratory, the Perfumers draw their creative spark from art, and then, free of all limitations, express the uncovered emotion through an original, precious raw material. Letting it boldly shine to reveal it under another, unconventional light, the Perfumers raise the fragrance up to the rank of full-fledged artistic masterwork.
The eleven iconic scents of the collection are joined by four of the House’s beloved fragrances, which have been renamed for the occasion —Frenchy Lavande, Herbes Troublantes, OEillet Pourpre and Épices Volées (formerly Le Frenchy, Un Dimanche à la Campagne, Lui and Arsène Lupin Voyou, respectively)— as well as by two new compositions — Rose Chérie and Santal Pao Rosa. These two original creations pay tribute to the rose, the Guerlain Perfumers’ most cherished flower. Fresh and tender, in Rose Chérie, a pure excess of rose takes to the throne in all of its most precious facets, soothed by powdery almond. Woody and powerful, Santal Pao Rosa makes artful use of the flower to gently envelop the intense sandalwood.
Bringing together French refinement and the ritual of fragrance, the House also proposes two additional collections, elegantly extending the art of perfumery into the home. Because interior fragrances should be just as suited to delighting the senses, L’Art de Vivre offers a range of candles and diffusers, inviting one to embark on a number of journeys, from the Riviera to Russia, all from the comfort of the home. With the belief that delicate, elegant nature of a scent should be equally enchanting in more intimate settings, Les Matières Confidentielles offers refined fragrances to spray on the skin or one’s beloved materials.
The L’Art & La Matière collection is sold exclusively online and at all Guerlain Boutiques, as well as at selected counters across the world. Offering a truly beautiful experience situated at the crossroads of fragrance and art, these spaces provide dedicated customisation and refill services.
