Guerlain Logo – Guerlain is the oldest perfumer French. The house was created Rue de Rivoli in Paris in 1828 by Pierre-François-Pascal Guerlain, whose motto was: “Glory is fleeting, lasting only fame.” For over 150 years, it has remained family property Guerlain. Following the acquisition by the group LVMH in 1994, Guerlain is now a registered branch of the Perfume and Cosmetics of LVMH.
In 1828, after studying medical chemist in England, Pierre-François-Pascal Guerlain, moved to Paris as a perfumer vinegar. The same year he founded Guerlain perfume, as a shop in the Hotel Meurice in Paris. He makes and sells sapoceti – know the spermaceti scented with natural essences – and also likes its activities by offering its first perfume eau de toilette as the Champs Scents and the King’s Garden Bouquet.
