Encens Mythique d'Orient belongs to Guerlain’s Exclusive Collections, a range of fragrances for aficionados of rare scents, those who appreciate noble raw materials and refinement down to the last detail.

An ethereal frankincense leaves only a fleeting mark on this fragrance, while rose imprints its fiery accents. But the endless sweetness and exceptional depth come from authentic and majestic ambergris of New Zealand, specially selected by Thierry Wasser for this fragrance. An enigmatic opus to sing the praises of a world devoted to eternity.

The Déserts d’Orient fragrances are housed in simple, streamlined bottles gorgeously illuminated by a shower of gold, like a symbol of riches: a sign of belonging to a world in which this precious material has always been given pride of place. The bottle nests in an amethyst “leather feel” case (that can be turned into a jewellery box as you wish).

Perfumer secrets

Ambergris gives this fragrance its intense character. Amber is one of the most expensive raw materials in perfumery. Thierry Wasser used it to create an exceptional communelle by assembling blocks of amber according to their scent (salty, marine, warm, animal) to attain the perfect note.

Ideal for men and women alike.
