  1. Dear Monsieur Guerlain,

    For many years now, I enjoy your website, facebook and Instagram about your passion!
    I also am an very great fan and am collecting for quit some time now ( 2005).
    By unforseen reasons, I am now selling my collection and was wondering if you are interested in buying some items or that you know persons whom are interested.
    With great pain in my heart, I am forced to do this and my initial thought was that if I can't enjoy it anymore maybe I can make somebody else happy who is also a great fan.

    I have a very large collection that consists in 2 large cabinets filled with the most beautifull bottles and other memorabilia from Guerlain.
    Among other bottles for example: a gorgeous 450 ml pure parfum L'Heure Bleu bottle decorated with Swarovski cristals, a limitid edition. Signed of as number 9 made out of 10 bottles.
    If you are interested or now collectors who are, please contact me by email: kramericas@zonnet.nl
    I hope that I hear from you soon and wish you a very nice Sunday!

    Kind regards, Jacqueline Ubink from The Netherlands

  2. Hello Monsieur Guerlain!

    I love your work and as I am a Guerlain fanatic myself i visit your site very often.

    Today I ordered a 30 ml Flacon of Vintage Vol De Nuit. It's from January 1998... I have a question: Do you know in which years Vol De Nuit was reformulated. Were there more than one reformulation?

    Thank you! And keep on doin' your brillant work. Peter

    1. Dear Peter, I'm so happy to know you enjoy my Guerlain website! According to Thierry Wasser, Vol de Nuit had its first reformulation already in the 1950s, when a synthetic daffodil was added due to a harsh winter. After that, all the standard IFRA restrictions were employed little by little, regarding bergamot, musk, animal ingredients, etc. As of lately, Wasser has stated that he has put back natural daffodil absolute in Vol de Nuit, so it's actually closer to the vintage now than it has been for many years.

    2. Thank you so much. So you think 1998 extrait is a good year for a vintage bottle?

      Delete
    3. Yes, I'd personally consider 1998 very good for Vol de Nuit.

    1. Dear Cynical Optimist, reportedly it's out in Japan on May 1st - I've heard it should come out elsewhere later as well, but I don't know where or when.

  5. Hi, I'm contemplating buying Nahema extrait since it's been discontinued. They're all very expensive in ebay, do you recommend the last version available or vintage Nahema.
    I tried to get information online, it's not clear whether the vintage withstands the ravages of time or not.


    Regards

    1. Dear Anonymous,
      Nahéma doesn't age very well, so I recommend a newer juice. The latest editions are very good in my opinion.

  7. Dear Sir,
    I have a presentation of Chamade that is actually 2 bottles that fit together. I've never seen this before and cannot find any info on it. Could you shed some light on my mystery? Grazie!

    1. Dear Rina, that was a special 1999 duo of Chamade and Chamade Pour Homme. You can read about it under Masculines.

    I thank you so much for the info about L'Heure Bleue being reformulated. I bought an Eau de Parfum which smelled so strange that it made me wonder for long if there is something wrong with me. I have always few bottles of L'Heure Bleue in all concentration and that convinced that must be something wrong with THAT bottle of EdP. Found some older ones and bought them and they are all ok. And, indeed, the new ones of EdT that I bought were absolutely ok, so it's EdP. Thank you so so much for info, I might decide to die if one day L'Heure Bleue won't be the same.

  10. Dear Monsieur Guerlain,

    I picked up an ancient bottle of L'heure Bleue at an antiques swap meet. It is the heart-stopper with the silk still around the neck but the label is round with a simple font. I believe it is 15ml and the bottle has Guerlain and "crysta"l pressed into the glass. Can we date this gem? Merci!

    1. Dear Rina, it's very difficult to date these very old bottles, because the heart-shaped stopper bottle has stayed the same throughout the years, and no one knows the batch code system of those days.

  11. Thank you! It's so plain and different from anything else I've seen. Just simple font in light grey against a white background. I'd be happy to send you a pic if you'd like. Merci beaucoup!

  14. Hi Monsieur Guerlain,
    I have been a follower of your site and on FB for a long time and appreciate all you do to keep us up to date with the Guerlain news! I came across 4 amphora/rosebud flacons at an estate sale. They all contain perfume but the labels are all faded and I am only able to recognize Shalimar by smell alone. On the bottoms of the bottles are different colored paper labels, each with a different number. Is it possible to tell what the contents are by either the color of the label or number eg red for Shalimar etc? Thanks for any help you may give me. All good thoughts from Oregon :-) Sally

    1. Dear Sally, I'm very happy to know you find my sites useful! I don't think I've ever seen the amphora bottles with differently coloured labels on the bottom, only for the cylindrical EdC bottle.

  15. Hmm - a mystery then! Yes, one has a small red paper label - this is the Shalimar. One has a green label - when I looked at the gold label on the front of the bottle with a magnifier under a bright light, I can just make out Chamade. The other 2 paper labels are a light brown color. One contains a very light colored perfume, the other is darker and smells a little like L'Heure Bleue which I have in my collection. I appreciate you taking the time to reply. Best wishes!
