Since 1828, Guerlain has explored, innovated and elevated beauty in Fragrances, Skincare and Makeup. Guerlain’s bold creative talents have crafted mythic creations, drawing on timeless savoir-faire. Nature and Art are our inspirations and the Culture of Beauty is our signature. The House of Guerlain was founded in 1828, when Pierre-François Pascal Guerlain opened his perfume store at 42, rue de Rivoli in Paris. As both the founder and first perfumer of the house, Pierre-François composed and manufactured custom fragrances with the help of his two sons, Aimé and Gabriel.
