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 1917, Jasmiralda is a soft, romantic floral fragrance that is different from the other more animalistic Guerlain perfumes. From the website, Monsieur Guerlain, it states: "The name is anything but bourgeois. Jasmiralda is a contraction of "Jasmine" and "Esmeralda", the young gypsy street dancer who lived among bohemians in Paris in Victor Hugo’s novel. As the name suggests, Jasmiralda is worked around jasmine, the star ingredient in any floral composition. While jasmine is present right from the beginning, it starts out with fresh, but very mild citrus notes of orange, bergamot and neroli. The opening is so light and gentle that the strength and tenacity of what comes after is highly unexpected. Slowly, the jasmine grows in volume and meets with rose and violet, yet it remains light and bright. This may mainly be due to the fact that Jasmiralda contains a remarkably high dose of vetiver whose dry, grassy and warm scent serves to temper the whole composition. In fact, the main theme of the perfume appears as a soft jasmine-vetiver accord. Had it not been for Jacques Guerlain’s beloved amber and animal musk, which are certainly there, Jasmiralda would probably be classified as a woody floral. L'Heure Bleue and Mitsouko are often said to mark the beginning and end of World War I respectively. Guerlain's only perfume from that period is Jasmiralda. Jacques was called to join the French army to fight in the war and while he was serving he was wounded in the eye and returned home. According to research intern Will Innig at L'Osmotheque, the injury left Jacques blind in one eye.

Jasmiralda features top notes of jasmine, neroli, orange and bergamot; middle notes of jasmine, rose, bouvardia (genus of flowering plants in the Rubiaceae family that contains about 50 species of evergreen herbs and shrubs native to Mexico and Central America), violet, vetiver, musk, civet and benzoin; and base notes of amber, oakmoss, vanilla and tonka bean.

Long discontinued, this is the original vintage extrait (pure parfum).
