About Guerlain :
The worldÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s leading perfume house, Guerlain, has always used luxurious and rare materials for its perfumes. This includes French vanilla or ylang-ylang from their own plantations in Comoro Islands, for example. Beside that, Guerlain has been an innovator in use of synthetic materials: Jicky (1889) was the first perfume to which AimÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â© Guerlain added a synthetic componentÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Âcoumarin.
Bottles of all shapes and sizes ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ from splashes to shower gels ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ were produced for both men's and women's lines. After he died, his son Aime Guerlain became the main perfumer. Never one to be satisfied with the status quo, Jacques looked for ways to improve upon his fatherÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s creations. His famous perfume Jicky, created in 1889, became the first "modern" perfume. It was also believed that it was he who created the so-called "Guerlinade"ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Âthe Guerlain base notes used for creation of multiple Guerlain perfumes.
The Guerlain house has been a family business since its inception in 1828, when Pierre-FranÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â§ois Pascal Guerlain opened a store in Paris. In 1994, the House of Guerlain was purchased by LVMH. In 2002, the family legacy ended with Jean-Paul Guerlain's retirement, though he continues to work for the house as a consultant. Thierry Wasser was named the official in-house perfumer of Guerlain in 2008. The flagship Guerlain boutique in Paris was restored and reopened in June 2005. The house at the magic address 68 Champs ElysÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â©es, now not only a boutique and the main office but a museum as well, welcomes customers once again.
