A Haute Parfumerie interpretation of Armenian paper

Capacity : 100 ML

The fragrance artist’s touch

Benzoin

Sourced in Thailand and Indonesia, benzoin is one of the essential ingredients used in making Armenian paper. It occurs naturally in the form of gum or resin and is harvested from the benzoin tree through making small incisions in its trunk.

Characterised by its unique balmy, vanilla and woody notes, this warming ingredient gives Bois d’Arménie its rather indulgent oriental accents.

In the Perfumer’s words

“Using the art of perfumery to evoke the smell of burning incense was a conceptually complex idea. At the heart of the creation, there is a strong presence of benzoin, an extremely balmy note.”
Thierry Wasser,
Guerlain Master Perfumer

THE ART OF BOTTLING

Taking inspiration from the Guerlain heritage Square Bottle (1870), the L’Art & La Matière bottle is an exceptional object whose design exudes unisex sophistication steeped with modernity.
Made by Pochet du Courval—historic glassmaker of the House—it is infinitely refillable at selected Guerlain Boutiques.
