GUERLAIN The Exclusives Les Parisiennes – Baiser de Russie 2018

”INSPIRED BY ICY BEAUTIES, ROMANTIC HEROINES, SENSUAL SPIES AND DECIDEDLY URBAN QUEENS OF THE CATWALK, BAISER DE RUSSIE TAKES US TO THE HEART OF ETERNAL RUSSIA.”

WITH THOUGHTS ELSEWHERE

Musky, fruity and floral, Baiser de Russie is the scent of a stroll around Moscow – romantic during the day and vibrant at night. A touch of bergamot, in a nod to the traditional aromas of Russian tea, a dash of absinthe evoking the city’s historic cafés, a bouquet of jasmine encountered at the corner of a street, notes of vanilla and almost candied cranberries in traditional pastries… And in the distance? The subtle scent of pine needles that seems to emanate from the surrounding forests stretching as far as the eye can see..

Codes with a twist

Fresh yet opulent, evoking raw nature and the most precious Russian adornments in equal measure: green sets the tone for Baiser de Russie’s chic, Bohemian world. While the fragrance takes on an aqua tone, Guerlain’s iconic Bee bottle is decorated around its neck with a grosgrain ribbon in an irresistible emerald colour.


AN EPONYMOUS COLLECTION

Perfumes are like clothes: some remain and others disappear. When Guerlain stopped producing a fragrance to make way for new creations, Parisian male and female customers would pick up their pens to express their disapproval and dismay. There was so much correspondence from disappointed customers that Guerlain had the idea of rereleasing the fragrances mentioned most often in these disgruntled letters. A unique, one-of-a-kind idea that has no equal! This is how the singular Les Parisiennes and Les Parisiens collections were created within the Exclusives family. This year celebrates the return of the captivating Baiser de Russie, formerly known as Moscou.
