Guerlain à la Cour des Senteurs III

Back to the beauties of Guerlain at the 'scents courtyard'. I was telling you that not only did they sell luxury perfume and cosmetics but that they also exhibit treasures. Above, a gorgeous Baccarat crystal 'bee with silver wings' perfume bottle. At 17 000 € (approx. 22 000 $), it is obviously a beautiful work of art, a limited edition of only 50.
Below, two old 'Après l'ondée' (after the rain shower) perfume bottles in the Louis XIV bottle style. Finally, a perfume bottle of 1850 (the pic is slightly blurred, sorry!)

Retour à la boutique Guerlain à la Cour des Senteurs. Non seulement on peut y acquérir les parfums et cosmétiques de la marque célèbre, mais on peut également y admirer quelques trésors, tels que le flacon "l'abeille aux ailes d'argent" en cristal Baccarat. A 17 000 €, c'est une véritable petite œuvre d'art, édition limitée à 50 exemplaires. Dessous, deux flacons anciens "après l'ondée" dans le style dit Louis XIV. Enfin, ci-dessous, un flacon de 1850 (bon la photo est un peu floue, désolée...)

So beautiful. Too rich for my blood though.

I think only people with a lot of cents would be able to afford some of these scents! I like the Baccarat crystal thingy but must admire it from a distance!

Oh absolutely gorgeous, all of these - and lovely shots even through display glass! I adore those old bottles and that wonderful bee - Baccarat created real works of art:)

Achoo! Perfume makes me sneeze. Pretty bottles though.

As they saw, if you have to ask you can't afford it. Gorgeous bits of craftsmanship but they raise some moral questions.

Gorgeous, clearly a very exclusive place to shop!

This series makes me think of 'The Perfume' by Patrick Suskind. If I have told you this before, forget it, it's just... aging problems! LOL!

The bottles are a work of art in themselves Ciel, the 1850 bottle is divine!

VP said...

Why am I thinking of the Barberini bees?

Loree said...

Amazing stuff. The bottles are beautiful.

I wonder if the fragrances are as lovely as their containers. :)
