SYLVIE GUERLAIN, PROTECTOR OF THE GUERLAIN PATRIMONY
Perfume bottle specialist Bernard Gangler has written a book about the magnificent collection of Sylvie Guerlain (pictured to the right).
Like Jean-Paul Guerlain, Sylvie Guerlain is one of Jacques Guerlain's grandchildren. When Guerlain handed itself over to the luxury conglomerate LVMH in 1994, Sylvie Guerlain decided that she would serve as a protector of the family history. She has saved a large number of historic documents, and has spent much time, energy and money retrieving and collecting memorable Guerlain perfume bottles and artefacts.
Had it not been for Sylvie Guerlain, the following important Guerlain resources would never have come into being:
• Atlas and Monniot's "Guerlain bottle bible"
• Maison Guerlain's perfume bottle museum
• Thierry Wasser and Frédéric Sacone's re-created vintage Guerlain perfumes
• The Osmothèque's research into the lives of Aimé and Jacques Guerlain
• Élisabeth de Feydeau's forthcoming book about the Guerlain family
All lovers of Guerlain's patrimony owe Sylvie Guerlain a debt of gratitude.
