Spiritueuse Double Vanille is a woody-oriental fragrance that takes one on a journey elsewhere.
In this composition, a sheer excess of vanilla reveals its smoky, woody and generous facets. Accompanied by jasmine, ylang ylang, benzoin and cedar, the Guerlain Perfumer evokes exotic escapades and long journeys by boat. This is an epic expedition lulled by scents of rum and crates of spices.
Capacity :100 ML
The fragrance artist’s touch
Vanilla exudes bold excess, met with heady, syrupy accents of rum and cedarwood.
"If it were a painting, a work by Paul Gauguin from his Tahitian period."
The scent of elsewhere, Spiritueuse Double Vanille breathes with all the exoticism of a Gauguin canvas. This call of the beyond has always been strongly present at the House of Guerlain.
A signature material at the House of Guerlain, vanilla is a vital ingredient of the Guerlinade. Guerlain Perfumers have remained constantly devoted to a tireless quest to find its finest varieties.
Madagascan vanilla planifolia graces Spiritueuse Double Vanille with its generous, woody facets. This particular variety requires eighteen months to prepare. Used as a tincture, an age-old technique perpetuated by Guerlain, the vanilla is hand-cut and cold-soaked in order to exalt its fragrance to perfection.
At Guerlain, vanilla has withstood through the years, embracing the House’s most legendary scents with its enveloping sweetness.

In the Perfumer’s words
“This is a fragrance composed by Jean-Paul Guerlain, whose grandfather once dazzled the whole world with an overabundance of vanilla in his Shalimar. Nourished by rose, ylang ylang and jasmine, it stands in ode to the Indian Ocean.”
Thierry Wasser, Guerlain Master Perfumer
