Novelist, Anais Nin biographer and two-time winner of France's prestigious prix Jasmin, Elisabeth Barille has published several books dedicated to fashion and perfume, including Le Grand Livre du parfum (Flammarion, 1995) and Francois Coty, parfumeur et visionnaire (Editions Assouline, 1995). She also wrote Lanvin (Editions Assouline, 1997), which is part of the "Memoire de la mode" COLLECTIONS.. Eau de Cologne Imperiale, Jicky, l'Heure Bleue, Mitsouko, Shalimar: these immortal classics of the fifth sense are landmarks in the remarkable history of the House of Guerlain. Since its founding in 1828, Guerlain has created subtle compositions light years away from simple floral imitations. These fragrances invoke a mood in which romanticism and mystery are combinated, and have attracted a prestigious clientele that includes royalty and connoisseurs.At the turn of the century, Aime Guerlain, the creator of Jicky, composed the famous magic formula Guerlinade - a velvety, intoxicating alliance of rose, jasmine, vanilla and tonka bean - which has become the sensual hallmark of every creation, including the most recent ones. It is a note that stirs the emotions and embodies the spirit of a great perfumer and his legend.
Ottimo regalo Ottimo rapporto qualità-prezzo. Quando era appena uscito costava sicuramente molto di più. Ottimo come regalo per le persone che sono interessate all'argomento. Anche se il libro è più decorativo che di approfondimento. Comunque ne comprerò ancora
Very little text but great art and photos Lovely little picture book of Guerlain perfumes. Very little text but great art and photos.
