Guerlain celebrates Spring with limited edition Muguet

THE highly esteemed perfume house Guerlain has launched its Muguet for this year. In a tradition going back to 2006, to celebrate, and coinciding with, May Day, the house releases a numbered limited edition Muguet Eau de Toilette in specially created limited edition bottles which, this year, features embroidery from Atelier Bizet, a Paris-based studio which provides designs for many couture and luxury brands. Glass loves a lily of the valley (aka Muguet) fragrance which enchants with its innocent, pretty, soft and floral freshness.

For this year’s olfractory offering, Guerlain’s Master Perfumer, Thierry Wasser, has produced a bright natural, up-to-date muguet with lively green notes of lily of the valley, rose and jasmine. Guerlain say, “Fine and exuberant green notes to heighten its spring accents. Dew-beaded rose to enhance its freshness. Subtly sensual jasmine as a reminder that reawakening nature sends the senses into a spin… Muguet Eau de Toilette exudes all the poetic vitality of a spring landscape.”

For this year, the flacon has been slightly refined with a slightly rounder shaped, designed to “evoke beads of morning dew” with the neck of the bottle decorated with lily-of-the-valley bells created by another specialist atelier, the House of Legeron, which makes artificial flowers. The central flower of this design holds a genuine cultured pearl at its heart. A glorious tribute to spring.
