In the world of fragrance and beauty, The House of Guerlain has one great reputation—one of unparalleled devotion to luxury, sophistication, and elegance complemented by unprecedented excellence that has been handed down from generation to generation. Guerlain was founded in 1828, when Pierre-Francois-Pascal Guerlain opened his first boutique in Paris. Trained as a doctor and chemist, he enjoyed immediate success thanks to his revolutionary work, which led to many innovative “firsts.” Guerlain was the first to create scientifically based skincare and to sell Kohl eyeliner and mascara. Then in 1840, he introduced the very first lipsticks. Even years later, The House of Guerlain continued this tradition of “firsts” by introducing Terracotta, the benchmark for all bronzers, and Meteorites, the first product to incorporate colored pearl to create luminosity and even out skin tone. Add to its oeuvre more than 700 fragrances (several of which are considered to be among the masterpieces of perfumery), and the Guerlain name has become internationally recognized as a symbol of artistry, superlative quality, impeccable style, and ultimate grace.
