Perfume Description

 

NEW YORK CUSTOMERS ONLY - We can no longer ship Guerlain products to New York State.  If purchased by a New York State customer, we will refund all Guerlain items and cannot ship them.

 

The House of Guerlain is one of the oldest perfume houses in the world. It was founded in 1828 by Pierre-Francois Pascal Guerlain. Pierre-Francois composed and manufactured custom perfumes with the help of his two sons, Aime & Gabriel. Guerlain catered to the high society of Paris and had a very loyal following. The perfume house was so successful that in 1840 Guerlain decided to open a flagship store at 15, Rue de la Paix. The house was at its peak in 1853 with its fragrance Eau de Cologne Imperiale which gave Guerlain the prestigious title of His Majesty's Official Perfumer of France.  

Pierre-Francois died in 1854 and his sons took over the perfume house. Aime became the master perfumer and Gabriel managed and expanded the house. Aime created several fragrances including Fleur d'Italie, Rococo, Eau de Cologne de Coq and his greatest creation, Jicky. In 1914, Guerlain moved to 68, Champs-Elysees. 

The business was then handed down to Gabriel's sons, Jacques & Pierre. Jacques became the third master perfumer and created many fragrances during his time at Guerlain including Apres L'Ondee, Shalimar, Vol de Nuit, Mitsouko, L'Heure Bleue, Eau du Coq and Ode. A number of these fragrances are still available today. Jacques' grandson Jean-Paul became the fourth master perfumer and among his creations were Vetiver, Habit Rouge, Samsara, Nahema and Jardins de Bagatelle. 

Launched in 1922, Bouquet de Faunes is a feminine fragrance created by Jacques Guerlain. It is a musk oriental fragrance that is very complex and full of unadulterated animalic notes. Bouquet de Faunes features top notes of neroli, suede and jasmine; middle notes of iris, marjoram, lavender, amber, carnation, rose, ylang-ylang, neroli, geranium, violet and Brazilian rosewood; and base notes of musk, costus, leather, tonka bean, vanilla, tobacco, civet, castoreum, vetiver and patchouli.

From a 1934 publication of The Pharmaceutical Era, it states that Monsieur Guerlain was strolling one morning in the Jardin de Tuileries and came upon the famous statue of the faun with flowers grouped around its base. The grace of the faun standing in a bed of flowers and the sweet fresh odors of the blossoms in the morning air was the inspiration for this fragrance. 

Bouquet de Faunes was discontinued in 1963. This is the original vintage extrait (pure parfum).
