description

Composed in 1920 by Jacques Guerlain following a trip to the French Riviera, Eau de Fleurs de Cédrat is the most citrusy of the Guerlain Eaux de Cologne.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of this Eau de Cologne, the iconic Bee Bottle—crafted by historic glassmaker Pochet du Courval for Guerlain since 1853—is graced for the first time with a palladium finish. Entirely hand-painted, the unique bottle with a silver sheen echoes the radiance and fresh facets of the composition housed within.
A precious posy of Riviera plants, gilded with palladium leaf, illuminates this sumptuous exceptional edition. Anne Brun, a craftswoman specialised in the art of leaf-gilding plants, imagined and composed a stunning bouquet bursting with quaking grasses, poppy seed pods, knapweed from the hills, daisies from the Cape, Cupid's dart and Lebanese cedar wood roses. The artist picked them from the countryside near Grasse—the Perfume capital of the world overlooking the Mediterranean Sea—and wrapped them in a cloak of metallic light. A gift of Nature meticulously embellished by hand, each ornament is different, a truly unique expression of Anne Brun's remarkable talent and expertise.

The "Dames de Table" from the Guerlain Ateliers add the final touch, decorating the neck of the 1-litre Bee Bottle with a delicate silver thread.

A limited, individually numbered edition (29 editions available worldwide).

perfumers secret

Originally from Provence, Anne Brun specialises in an unconventional style of gilding, whereby she applies metal leaf to plants. She uses this traditional expertise to adorn them in a cloak of metallic light.
Anne Brun selects and dries the samples, either on the ground in nature or laid out flat, as with a herbarium. On a pre-coated natural surface, she skilfully places the leaf of malleable and fine metal using pincers. During the step known as chiquetage, any excess metal is removed by a small brush (called an appuyeux in French), then a varnish is added to protect the finished work.
Several days are required to complete this meticulous task to perfection.
