Since 1828 ... It all started with Pierre-François-Pascal Guerlain, perfumer, chemist, inventor, explorer ... The founder of the House combined all these talents in setting up a first boutique in the heart of the capital, at 42, rue de Rivoli.

This address quickly become the must-see (and be seen!) destination for dandies and quaintrelles. The House’s reputation was raised to new levels when, in 1853, on the occasion of the marriage of Napoleon III and Empress Eugenie, Pierre-François-Pascal created his iconic Eau de Cologne Impériale and presented it to the bride as a wedding gift.br />

Since then, five generations of Guerlain perfumers have come in the wake of the founder. Today, worthy heir of an olfactory catalogue of nearly 800 fragrances, and fearless conductor of the future compositions of the House, Thierry Wasser explores the world in search of the most exclusive raw materials for his creations. Olivier Echaudemaison adds extra bravura and unique know-how of feminine beauty to the make-up line. Guerlain’s spirit of audacity is ever-there in its search for inspiration in nature and the use of raw materials for the formulation of products of excellence.

The transmission of skills and expertise and a love of the sublime continues to drive the designers and craftsmen of Maison Guerlain, who have, over the years, never lost sight of that same insatiable quest for Beauty.
