Guerlain commits to the bee, sentinel of the environment

A delicate, musky interpretation of gardenia

Capacity : 100 ML

The fragrance artist’s touch

Gardenia accord

Gardenia is a powerful, sensual white flower with fruity accents. Yet, paradoxically, it stays mute in the world of Perfumery, unable to offer up its fragrance through the traditional techniques of distillation or extraction.

It must be written as an accord, as if composing a poem. For Cruel Gardénia, notes of rose, neroli, ylang ylang and peach recreate its trail.

In the Perfumer’s words

“Gardenia does not exist as an extractable essence. The Perfumer must build an illusion of its scent. The musks play their part here in casting the spell.”
Thierry Wasser,
Guerlain Master Perfumer

THE ART OF BOTTLING

Taking inspiration from the Guerlain heritage Square Bottle (1870) and made by Pochet du Courval - historic glassmakers of the House - the L’Art & La Matière bottle is an exceptional object whose design exudes unisex sophistication steeped in modernity.
