Guerlain Champs Elysées
The names of its greatest fragrances evoke poems: Après l'ondée, Chant d'arômes, Chamade, L'heure bleue, L'instant magic, L'homme idéal…
They also tell a story: the story of a remarkable dynasty that remained at the helm of this family business right up until 1994. There was Pierre, Aimé, Jacques and finally Jean-Paul Guerlain, all of them exceptional noses who created timeless fragrances such as the legendary Shalimar (1925).
It is to Jacques Guerlain that we owe the building on the Champs-Élysées, the brand’s flagship store, which he commissioned from Charles Mewès, the architect behind the Paris Ritz and the London Carlton, in 1914. Brimming with carved stone and sculpted metal, the building, a quintessential example of the Belle Epoque style, is now a listed historical monument.
Step inside to discover a setting as precious as the brand’s legendary bottles, with a luxurious décor and a sumptuous fragrance rack. And if you want to keep savouring an array of floral, peppery and aniseed notes, take advantage of the Institut Guerlain, which offers on-site treatments using the brand’s complete range of beauty products. Rare in every respect…
