Every year, Guerlain honours the French May Day in its own style. An iconic, luxurious and ephemeral fragrance that is slipping into an exceptional bottle this season. A way of reinterpreting a prestigious heritage and of paying tribute to the know-how of artistic craftsmanship.
This season, the Floral Bottle created by the master glassmakers Pochet et du Courval – which held the first interpretation of Muguet by Guerlain in 1908 – is given pride of place. Originally made of glass, it has been crafted exclusively for this edition in white porcelain biscuit, from which springs a graceful and pure decoration in relief, beautifully illustrating the good-luck flower. A technical feat meticulously executed by Artoria, a renowned specialist in the field.
The reputation of this French manufacture based in Limoges dates back to the 1920s, particularly thanks to the designs by Camille Tharaud (1878-1956), a highly skilled and innovative porcelain artist who raised the prestige of working in ceramic. His delicate handcrafted decorations would subsequently earn him worldwide recognition, with his works being displayed in top museums. In 2007, Artoria obtained the prestigious “Living Heritage Company” label. Through its Muguet, blending tradition and innovation,
Guerlain perpetuates the charm and delicacy of a bouquet sprinkled with wonderful green notes evoking the springtime dew. Rose, jasmine and a lilac accord take over at the heart, lending a depth and femininity. The neck of the bottle is adorned with a green organdie ribbon whose four-looped bow also dates back to 1908, like the bow on a gift to which you add a finishing touch before offering it as a lucky charm to someone dear.
