L'Art & La Matière
Passionate about Art and artistic creation, the House of Guerlain is dedicated to promoting the excellence of French craftsmanship with its collection of exceptional plates for adorning the L’Art & La Matière bottle.
Parisian artisan jeweller and long-time friend of the House, Francesco Truscelli crafts exceptional jewellery creations using traditional, exclusive methods.
Truscelli has now created an extraordinary plate, the fruit of three hours of incredibly meticulous work, all done by hand. First, it is polished and plated with 24-carat gold, then, with painstaking precision, it is set with jewels that reveal a Guerlain heritage motif.
BY ATELIER TRUSCELLI
Set with forty synthetic diamonds, each one applied by hand, this finish demonstrates an avant-garde choice in its use of cutting-edge technology: exceptional laboratory-manufactured jewels that replicate the wonders of nature while also protecting it.

Set with forty rhodolite garnets, each one applied by hand, this finish reveals infinite shades of pink in its natural, hand-cut gemstones.
ARTISTIC RAW MATERIALS
EMBROIDERED BEE PLATE
BY ATELIER BIZET
Symbol of Guerlain, the bee embroidered on this exceptional plate is crafted by Corinne Bizet. A Parisian traditional embroidery studio, Atelier Bizet collaborated with Guerlain on the Muguet Millésime 2017 and 190th-anniversary exceptional editions. Partner to the greatest names in haute couture, Atelier Bizet offers its precious, time-honoured savoir-faire to Guerlain in crafting an embossed bee embroidered with gold thread. The bee comes to life after three hours of extremely delicate work, carried out entirely by hand.
STRAW MARQUETRY PLATE
BY LISON DE CAUNES
The traditional French decorative technique of straw marquetry is today carried on and adapted to modern trends by Lison de Caunes, granddaughter of the Art Deco Grand Master who forever marked the House’s history, André Groult.
Following on from her spectacular marquetry frescoes that grace the boutique at 68 Champs-Élysées, Lison de Caunes is now bringing her unique savoir-faire to the Guerlain art of bottling.
The straw marquetry plate requires a whole hour of meticulous assembly and embossing. One by one, each blade of straw is assembled by hand to form a sun motif that radiates with splendour.
NATURAL MOTHER-OF-PEARL PLATE
BY THE HOUSE OF GUERLAIN
A genuine objet d'art, the natural mother-of-pearl plate celebrates the vibrant natural quality of this material that sparkles with a thousand shades. A true technical feat of finesse, this exceptional plate is signed off with an engraved double G.
Coined by Queen Elizabeth I in the 15th century, mother-of-pearl has become a material of choice among numerous fine jewellery houses.
