Born in 1881, craftsman’s son Guccio Gucci founded the House of Gucci as a saddlery shop in Florence in 1906. Guccio's first talent was his craftsmanship in leather goods. He started out selling leather bags to horsemen in the 1920’s and progressed to luxury luggage as his clients graduated from equine transportation to 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. Through continued success and the patronage of members in high society, Guerlain opened its flagship store at 15, rue de la Paix in 1840, and put its mark on the Parisian fashion scene.
The success of the house under Pierre-François peaked in 1853 with the creation of Eau de Cologne Impériale for French Emperor Napoleon III and his wife Empress Eugénie. This perfume earned Pierre-François the prestigious title of being His Majesty's Official Perfumer. Guerlain went on to create perfumes for Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom and Queen Isabella II of Spain, among other royalty.
Cologne fantastique! Dure longtemps et quand sec est intense mais lisse. Une petite quantité va un long chemin.
This perfume exceeded my expectations. The intensity and lasting power is apparent when I’m still getting the scent after 10 hours in the office with just 3 sprays in the morning. Many compliments too.
J'adore ce parfum. Je l'utilise depuis plus d'un an. Je l'adore. Cette fois-ci l'acheter pour mon ami.
Longue durée! .... Excellent pour toutes les saisons et sent bon. Les dames aiment vraiment ce parfum. 5/5
Just an outstanding parfum! There are no words really to explain this beautiful and warm smell!
Je pense que ça sent absolument fantastique.
