"In 1937 Jacques Guerlain created Coque d’Or as a tribute to Sergei Diaghilev, famous creator of Russian Ballets. The bow-tie shaped bottle, today a Guerlain icon, is a nod to the archetypal male accessory Diaghilev wore at his soirees. For the first time since 1956, Guerlain has revisited the Coque d’Or bottle with a limited edition in midnight blue Baccarat crystal painted with gold 20 carats and hand finished with a silk yarn by the Guerlain Dames de Table. The light oak case complete with a golden harlequin design is a prefect replica of Michel Franck’s original design. .
Only 29 numbered pieces are available worldwide."


Thanks to priceless archives, the 1937 vintage extract, perfectly suited to both women and men, has been brought back to life in its legendary bottle. The fragrance is a classic chypre creation that boasts an elegant combination of bergamot, rose and patchouli. It is a remarkable example of this exquisite family of fragrances, which is once again very popular in the world of perfumery.
