Néroli Outrenoir 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.
Néroli Outrenoir draws on the contrast between the luminescence of neroli and the obscurity of much darker and more mysterious notes.
An exceptional fragrance, moving and stirring in equal measure, whose extremely rare sillage exudes an intriguing aura.
The fragrance dresses up in a bottle with clean, contemporary lines, decorated with a golden metal label on the side, like a precious book. An elegant wooden cap adds the finishing touch to this beautiful piece. The bottle nestles in an amethyst “leather feel” case (which may be transformed into a jewellery box as you wish).
Inspired and determined, the House Master Perfumer has chosen a luminous neroli, beautifully enhanced by bergamot, which is contrasted with notes of smoky tea, myrrh and dark woods (gaiac, oud).

While he declares his admiration for orange blossom – “I wanted all of its facets to be expressed: zesty, orangey neroli essence; woody, aromatic petitgrain essence; and orange blossom absolute” – and is dedicated to discernible elegance and unexplained, spontaneous grace, Thierry Wasser delights in playing with opposites, veiled references and about-turns with consummate skill.
