Guerlinade is the name of an accord that was used as the house signature in all of the classic Guerlain fragrances and in many of their modern scents as well. It was developed by Aime Guerlain in 1921 and contained bergamot, rose, jasmine, tonka bean, iris and vanilla.
In 1998, Guerlain released a limited edition fragrance called Guerlinade. There were 50,000 bottles made of which 3,500 were sent to the United States. This eau de parfum was released to celebrate Guerlain's 170th anniversary and the 200th birthday of Pierre-Francois-Pascal Guerlain who was the founder. It was loosely based on the signature accord and according to Jean-Paul Guerlain who created the scent: "It was more than a year in the making. I was trying to distill 200 years." This version featured notes of bergamot, lilac, linden, rose, iris, jasmine, tonka bean and vanilla.
Guerlinade has been discontinued. We are decanting from the limited edition 1998 fragrance and not the newer Guerlinade which was released in 2005 as part of the Les Parisiennes line.
