AT CHRISTMAS,
PARIS IS IN
THE SPOTLIGHT!

Long nights are another cause for celebration when they are unforgettable and perfectly festive! The
City of Lights and, more particularly, “68, Champs-Élysées”, the address of the legendary Guerlain
boutique, inspire a sensational and offbeat collection for night owls.

AN ODE TO COLOUR THAT VERGES ON EXUBERANCE,
ELEGANCE WITH A HINT OF INSOLENCE

From electric black cases to iridescent powders, from neon eyes to fluorescent nails, Crazy Paris
goes far beyond the codes of the House. The limited editions are stirred up by a playful touch with
incredible charm. Unanimously illustrated by neon pink, they surprise, delight and fill one and all with
the irrepressible desire to party all night long.

A WILDLY CRAZY AND IRRESISTIBLY COVETED SET

The collector’s editions complement each other down to their cases: a “68” engraved on the lacquered
cap of the Crazy Powders, the Champs-Élysées illustrated on the façade of Météorites Crazy Pearls
and “Paris” autographed on the mirror of the Crazy Paris Palette… As desirable to show off as they
are dazzling to use, these black objects set off with vibrant pink match up perfectly to enhance the
beauty of nighthawks. Smile, you’re all dressed up, ready to rev up the most joyous parties of the year.

EXHILARATING STAR
PRODUCTS

LA PETITE ROBE NOIRE GOES OUT ON THE TOWN

LA PETITE ROBE NOIRE SO CRAZY – Perfumed Shimmer Powder Body & Hair

A graceful press of the bulb releases the airy loose powder, a joyful rush of the delightful scents of
La Petite Robe Noire, a delectable trail of black cherry, almond, Bulgarian rose, liquorice and smoky
black tea over an exquisite Guerlinade base.

The deliciously fine powder dresses up skin and hair in a shimmering iridescent pink halo. This fresh,
cheerful and magnetic shade, as flattering and captivating in the daylight as it is under the spotlights,
creates a multitude of glimmering reflections to light up a swish of the hair or bare skin, a rounded
shoulder, the nape of the neck or the curve of the décolleté.

Wow! In one second, skin and hair are scrumptiously scented and sparkling, glowing with femininity.
The embodiment of Parisian chic!

A GALA OUTFIT
For an even more exquisite gift, the bottle of La Petite Robe Noire has been specially revamped in a
limited edition. Its glass is sensually lacquered with black, from its base to the curves of its shoulders.
To electrify its admirers, it is accessorised with a neon pink fabric bulb and lights up with an outline
whose contours are engraved in the same tone and highlighted with neon yellow. This sizzling creation
has everything it takes to enthral and satisfy seductresses in the know, both day and night.

FLICKERING EYES
CRAZY PARIS – Eye Palette – Neon Look

The star eye accessory and the essential ally for festive parties, the collector’s palette is a complete
eye make-up kit for evenings out. On the left are two vertical grey and black matte powder liners
to use wet or dry to define eye contours and outline them perfectly. Next to them are four horizontal
velvety or iridescent eyeshadow shades to colour eyelids as you wish in copper, beige, white
and even hot pink. Used on their own or blended together, dampened or not, they offer every
possible effect for free and instinctive make-up, perfectly accompanying your outfits and continuously
reinvented.

CRAZY COUTURE FINISHES

So crazy! Slipped into a black suedette pouch with pink topstitching, the extra-flat black lacquered
case comes with a large panoramic mirror illuminated with the letters “P.A.R.I.S.” in the same
electric pink. Just as convenient, two applicators – one with black double foam tips and the other
with silky pink bristles – ensure precise, on-the-go and vibrant eye make-up application.

DAZZLING COLLECTOR’S
ITEMS FOR THE COMPLEXION
A VIBRANT COMPLEXION

CRAZY POWDERS – Météorites Powder and Terracotta Powder

To revive winter complexions and sweep away dullness, Guerlain gives extra vibrancy to its
limited-edition compact pressed powders, inspired by the colour know-how of Météorites and
Terracotta. Given a clever twist with a “crazy” tangy pink, these two harmonies are astounding
when it comes to creating a radiant and glowing effect. Choose the one you wish, no matter what
your skin tone, depending on your mood or the desired result:

CRAZY MÉTÉORITES Radiance Powder – Vibrant Colours, the original gradation of the shade
MYTHIC 01 revived with pink, to refresh dull complexions and offer a beautiful springtime glow.
CRAZY TERRACOTTA Healthy Glow Powder – Vibrant Colours, a delicately orange-hued sunlit
harmony swept with an invigorating burst of becoming pink, warms the skin with a discreet tan
perfectly adapted to winter light.

A COVETED CASE: these healthy glow treatments are housed in the same black lacquered
case with a cap elegantly decorated with a vibrant pink “68”. The writing, backlit by a flashy
yellow, stands out like a bright neon light in the darkness.

DANCING MÉTÉORITES

MÉTÉORITES CRAZY PEARLS – Illuminating Powder – Pure Radiance

To please loyal fans, the cult pearls offer a play on their legendary combination of six shades:
beige and rosy beige to even out the skin, mauve to refresh, white to light up, gold to illuminate and
pink for a healthy glow. Pink is accentuated to revive tired complexions and deliver an uplifting
energy boost. The subtly pearly Météorites light up the face with a delicately satiny halo, discreetly
perfumed with the inimitable powdery violet trail.

WILD DECORATION: the letters “Champs-Élysées” dance in full colour, and seemingly in
three dimensions, all around the black lacquered metal case.

FOR A SMOULDERING SMILE

ROUGE G DE GUERLAIN – Exceptional Complete Lip ColourGuerlain MAKE-UP COLLECTION CHRISTMAS 2013

The elegant Rouge G reinvents itself in honour of the longest and most festive nights of the year.
Its black lacquered case is enhanced with a lively pink touch. Equipped with an integrated
mirror under its luxurious sheath, it reveals a deep pink lipstick, 863 PROVOCATIVE, for superbly
outlined lips.

FOR TANGY LIPS

ROUGE AUTOMATIQUE – Hydrating Long-Lasting Lip Colour

In line with the Crazy Paris concept, the Rouge Automatique case also dares to wear shiny
lacquered black, lit up with a neon orange drop this time. In one stroke and with a single hand,
it reveals two pink collector’s shades: electric with 660 ILLUSION, a subtly sparkling plum, or
intense and bold with 661 REFLEX, an impertinent neon pink.

CRAZY
MANICURE
THE NIGHT OWL TOUCH, EVEN IN BROAD DAYLIGHT
COLOUR LACQUER – Long-Lasting Colour & Shine

Party girls are on-trend down to their fingernails. They indulge in this nail enamel at any hour of the
day in its star winter shade: 861 SULFUROUS. This artificial black, recreated with a savvy blend of
colours to achieve a particularly dark and deep result, is unparalleled when it comes to revealing the
intensity of its pearly particles and its enigmatic violet reflections. Two coats and the shade sets
itself on the nails, perfectly even and shiny.

GLOSSY CHARM
UNDER THE MAGIC OF BLACK LIGHT
ULTRA VIOLET TOP COAT – Nail Shaper Acrylic Effect

Applied directly to bare nails, one coat of Ultra Violet Top Coat reveals their whiteness by giving
them a slightly blue hue. Swept over nail enamel, it shapes nails and makes them look perfectly
smooth and glossy. However, the real magic takes place in nightclubs under black light! It’s the
revelation in the midst of the party! The pigments react to the lighting and nails become fluorescent.
Your hands catch all eyes and you never go unnoticed.

HABIT ROUGE
THE RIDER’S GETAWAY
For this 2013 edition, a new travel-friendly and reusable sleeve brings out and enhances the
elegant codes of the stylish and impeccably booted rider with his timeless trail. For Christmas, a
noble collector’s item that is sure to please fans from one generation to the next, whether they are
horsemen or not, with a fragrance that is assuredly off the beaten track..
Seductive and persuasive, the leather case is inspired by the centuries-old saddle-making tradition.
It takes up the inimitable and immediately recognisable topstitching, traced like prints left by a zealous
horse. As smooth as a tanned leather saddle under the fingers, it plays up the contrast between raw
leather and an embossed logo in tone-on-tone blood red. Likewise, the elegantly tweed-clad interior
accentuates the rider’s dandy sophistication.
An ever-popular figure of French elegance since its creation in 1965, Habit Rouge gallops forward
confidently under the Guerlinade seal. Passionate, noble and daring, it is the first oriental men’s
fragrance. It focuses its expression in a spicy woody heart, nuanced by neroli and jasmine notes.
Leather and oud wood notes develop in the drydown, mellowed by sweet vanilla and patchouli.

FOR HIM

SHALIMAR
ODE À LA VANILLE
ON THE ROAD TO MEXICO

For this third interpretation of Shalimar Ode à la Vanille, Thierry Wasser, the Guerlain Perfumer, went
to find the rarest of vanillas in its native land, Mexico. This is where vanilla was discovered for the
first time, hundreds of years ago, by the Aztec people.
For the House of Guerlain, rediscovering this Mexican vanilla is a double return to its roots. This
vanilla is the only one to be partly naturally pollinated by a bee, the Melipona bee (other vanillas
are pollinated by hand). A happy coincidence because Guerlain’s emblem, since the first “Bee”
bottle, has remained this little bee that forages from one creation to the next.
What are the specific characteristics of this fabulous vanilla?
It holds fruity and gourmand olfactory treasures, hints of caramel and cocoa aromas. A complexity
and finesse second to none. It is processed in the form of a tincture, a traditional method exclusive to
the House. Infused in alcohol for one month, it becomes fruitier, notably with stewed plum notes, as
well as more luminous and enveloping. The leathery notes are tempered to make way for fullness
and softness, as if the fragrance were naturally enhancing the scent of the skin.
To evoke the far-off origins of this variant of Shalimar Ode à la Vanille, the legendary bottle with
the sapphire cabochon has been placed in a sophisticated case decorated with vanilla pods and
orchid flowers. A sublime box set for a vintage edition.

FOR HER

MON EAU DE LINGERIE
BY GUERLAIN
LIMITED EDITION

“Getting dressed and undressed will never be the same again!”

La Petite Robe Noire by Guerlain is femininity incarnate, and she knows exactly what she wants!
With her feminine wiles she persuaded her mentor Thierry Wasser to create a scented mist to perfume
lingerie and little black dresses. Surprise, surprise, he was easily persuaded…
A BRAND NEW WARDROBE ACCESSORY, AVAILABLE IN A LIMITED EDITION
No sooner was the idea conceived than it became a reality. This entirely new way of applying scent
is the ideal accessory for a charming woman who is permanently on the move. Incredibly light, the
fragrance vaporises with the utmost subtlety. With its hint of rose, the scent blooms continually, and
leaves no mark on elegant lingerie, favourite black dresses, brightly coloured scarves, jackets or coats.
Expertly blended, it is perfectly faithful to the original. Instantly recognisable, its peerless black cherry
notes are freshened with bergamot, accompanied by the blend of crisp Bulgarian rose and mellow
Turkish rose absolute, followed by base notes of Guerlinade, inherited from its celebrated elders.

FOR A NEW IDEA IN PERFUMERY, A NEW SETTING ADORNED WITH AN
EXCLUSIVE DESIGN

The bottle is adorned with an illustration by the artists Kuntzel+Deygas, who have drawn our favourite
silhouette just at the moment that she is about to slip into her little black dress. Is she blushing? Difficult
to say what she hides behind that silhouette.

candied aroma of Turkish rose absolute. Finally, liquorice and smoky tea at the base, mingle with the
famous Guerlinade to create a bewitching scent.

The Eau de Toilette’s ambrosial fruity notes enhance a bouquet of fresh flowers, rose, jasmine and
orange blossom still damp with dew. Cherry, apple and blackcurrant are showered with green notes,
effervescent and vibrant. Finally, the timeless appeal of white amber and the silky-smooth notes of white
musk enrobe the fragrance in a tender and sensual halo.

EAU DE COLOGNE IMPÉRIALE
160TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
BY LISON DE CAUNES

In 1853, Pierre-François-Pascal Guerlain composed Eau de Cologne Impériale for Her Majesty
Empress Eugénie, wife of Napoleon III. This bouquet of citrus notes tinged with neroli and petit grain
came in a bottle decorated with a myriad of bees hand-gilded with fine gold.
Charmed by this creation, the Empress bestowed upon him the coveted title of Parfumeur Breveté
de Sa Majesté, Royal Perfumer. The fame and success of Guerlain rapidly spread throughout
the imperial and royal courts of Europe. A legend was born, giving Guerlain the most beautiful of
symbols: the Bee.
To celebrate the 160th anniversary of Eau de Cologne Impériale in sumptuous style, Guerlain
decided to highlight a spectacular and age-old artisanal skill: straw marquetry. This traditional
French decorative technique highly appreciated by legendary figures of the Art Deco movement is
now perpetuated and modernised by Lison de Caunes.
Patiently and passionately, she transforms individual pieces of straw into exceptional creations, each
more refined and imaginative than the last. A specialist in this craft for over 20 years and the only
Maître d’Art or “master craftsman” recognised in this technique to date, Lison de Caunes makes it
more brilliant than ever with this radiant case to honour the “Golden Bee Bottle”. Decorated with the
shining Guerlain star, it holds the monumental one-litre version of Eau de Cologne Impériale.

ONLY 32 NUMBERED PIECES WILL BE AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE.

LA PETITE ROBE NOIRE

Luxury, charm and daring! The heart-shaped bottle, a Guerlain icon, was developed by the Baccarat
ateliers in the early 20th century. About 50 of these vintage bottles, handmade following the original
design from 1912, were found while research was being undertaken in the Guerlain archives. Guerlain
decided to entrust the last 20 or so pieces to a craftsman with unique and rare know-how: Sara Bran,
a gold and silver lace maker. Combining precision, creativity and refinement, her work – inspired by
the textile lace-making heritage – was awarded with the Prix pour l’Intelligence de la Main.
For this La Petite Robe Noire prestige edition, Sara Bran returns to the ornamental and centuries-old
tradition of the perfume bottle holder. Starting with extremely thin solid silver sheets, she manually
forges the material for hours on end, carefully and painstakingly piercing, open-working, soldering
and polishing. A custom-made silver-crafted treasure, the lace traced with spinning volutes,
arabesques and interlacing lines embraces the curves of the bottle like the fabric of a Little Black
Dress. Each bottle is decorated with black silk threads hand-combed by the “Dames de Table”
craftswomen of the Guerlain ateliers.

An ultimate concentration for an exceptional bottle. In its Extract form, La Petite Robe Noire is more
charming than ever. Black tea, patchouli and black cherry stand strong, audaciously escorted by a
bold Guerlinade.

ONLY 21 NUMBERED PIECES WILL BE AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE.
BACCARAT BOTTLE AND SILVER LACE

SHALIMAR
THE WONDERS OF INDIA
BY SYLVIA TOLEDANO

Once upon a time in northern India, four centuries ago, a love story united Shah Jahan and Princess
Mumtaz Mahal to whom he offered a garden of delights: the Gardens of Shalimar. When she
passed away, the inconsolable emperor ordered the construction of a white marble mausoleum
bedecked with gemstones: the Taj Mahal. The tale of this passionate love kindled the imagination
of Jacques Guerlain, who composed the legendary Shalimar, the first oriental fragrance in the
Perfume world, in 1925.
As a tribute to this fragrance of eternal love and desire, Parisian jewellery designer Sylvia Toledano
created an exceptional jewellery set that follows the sensual curves of the one-and-a-half litre bottle.
This creation, gilded in fine matt 24-carat gold, is bejewelled with a myriad of gemstones from
Jaipur in shimmering colours, the very stones used in the sumptuous decoration of the Taj Mahal:
lapis lazuli, amethyst, carnelian, malachite, chalcedony, tiger’s eye, rose quartz and yellow quartz.
Shalimar is a flight of citrus notes that stirs an enveloping, delicately powdered heart. The
spellbinding trail of a carnal vanilla, the penetrating charm of iris, the balmy roundness of
opoponax and the gourmand warmth of tonka bean orchestrate an intimate, languid symphony of
scent. Shalimar is displayed like a gem; the meeting with Sylvia Toledano was a logical chapter in
its story. This singular artist perfectly captured the spirit of Shalimar: “an invitation to love, sensuality
and exhilaration”.

ONLY 48 NUMBERED PIECES WILL BE AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE.

LE PARFUM DU 68, EXTRACT
ACROSS THE ROUTE OF TIME

In 1913, Guerlain set up shop on the Champs-Élysées. To celebrate the opening of this “new temple
of Beauty”, Jacques Guerlain created the “Parfum des Champs-Élysées” for Parisian women,
housed in a superb Tortoise bottle in Baccarat crystal, a humorous reference to the slow rate at
which the construction was completed. In 2013, Guerlain continues to reinvent itself…
The legendary 68, Champs-Élysées claims its place as the must-visit site for the authentic French art
of living.
To pay homage to the history of the location, Guerlain and Baccarat reinterpret this legendary
Tortoise bottle in superb and stunning black crystal. This technical feat was made possible by the
restoration of a 100-year-old mould. The centre of this spectacular one-litre bottle radiates with a
magical decoration that takes up the major Parisian monuments gilded in fine gold. This painstaking
work was carried out by a Maître d’Art or “master craftsman” from the Gohard ateliers.
Thierry Wasser specially composed a perfume extract for this sumptuous extravagance: Le Parfum
du 68. A woody fragrance that plays up the contrast between cold and hot spices. Everlasting
flower, given pride of place, lends all of its character to the floral heart, while tonka bean, benzoin
and frankincense tinged with leathery notes envelop the fragrance in an unmistakable Guerlain trail.

ONLY 30 NUMBERED PIECES WILL BE AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE.

VOL DE NUIT
80TH ANNIVERSARY

With the creation of Vol de Nuit in 1933, Jacques Guerlain whisked us away on a timeless journey
into uncharted territories. He drew inspiration from the work of his friend Antoine de Saint-Exupéry to
compose this legendary fragrance.
A daring fragrance in which Guerlain’s favourite raw materials are reinterpreted. Jasmine, rose
and vanilla, whose scents intensify at nightfall, are unmistakable. The quest continues, keeping the
zealousness of amber, wood and iris notes in check.
80 years later, Guerlain celebrates the anniversary of this bottle with its timeless design by dressing
a few vintage pieces in gold. The 56-ml bottles, no longer available, were preciously conserved
in the Guerlain archives. Guerlain reveals this treasure of its legacy especially for this event. The
propeller and cap are moulded in precious metal, a yellow gold that contrasts with the unique dark
colour of the bottle.
The gold used for Vol de Nuit comes from rare pure gold nuggets from Latin America, extracted
from eco-responsible artisanal mines that respect the workers and the environment. In the purest
tradition of French goldsmithing, it is handcrafted by master jewellers with age-old expertise.
Unique and responsible expertise developed by the JEM jewellery house.

ONLY 46 NUMBERED PIECES WILL BE AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE.
