Bois d’Armenie, Sous Le Vent, Eau Hegemonienne and Other News from Guerlain

Sous_le_vent2 Parislondres brings some exciting news from the Guerlain boutique. Eau d’Hegemonienne (originally created by Aimé Guerlain in 1890-91) will be out in April and it will be priced at 700 euros. Several reissues will also join the range: No 68 (ancient bottle design), Muguet (Limited Edition) at 130 euros, Habit Rouge (only 450 pieces) at 140 euros, Mayotte  (reissue of Mahora) . L’Art et la Matiere collection, which already includes Cuir Beluga, Rose Barbare and Angelique Noire, will be expanded to include Bois d’Armenie, priced at 140 euros for 75ml. Finally, stunning green chypre Sous le Vent originally created in 1934 will also be available for 180 euros.  Thanks to N. and Michel for this information. The new fragrances will be available in April-May.

Apparently, a new limited edition perfume will be included to the range, thus replacing Plus Que Jamais (a limited edition created for the reopenning of the flagship store). Those interested in pre-ordering would be able to call Francoise (33 145 62 52 57) at Guerlain boutique in Paris.

  • Karin: I’d want to smell them first…

    Meantime, I remember seeing a complete list of Guerlains somewhere, I think. Do you know where that is/have the url? Or email it to me?

  • michel: i forget to precise that “mayotte” would be the rehissue of “mahora” March 10, 2006 at 4:37pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Tara, so far, I do not have any. As for Sous Le Vent, I agree it is a must have! I loved it when I tried the vintage version. March 10, 2006 at 3:25pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Karin, here you go:

    I love the names of these vintage fragrances… March 10, 2006 at 3:26pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Michel, thank you for the information. I added it to the list. I hear that Mayotte is supposed to be based on frangipani, which sounds lovely. Please let me know if you get to smell it soon. March 10, 2006 at 3:27pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: R, I am also excited about Sous Le Vent. It is probably one of my absolute favourite chypres! March 10, 2006 at 3:27pm Reply

  • Karin: Thanks for the url. I knew I had seen it somewhere. I copied it this time! March 10, 2006 at 8:59pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Michel, thank you! I wonder why they decided to reissue Mahora, which was a big flop. Perhaps, it might be reformulated along the way. March 10, 2006 at 11:56pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Karin, you are welcome! I love that list. March 10, 2006 at 11:59pm Reply

    • Victoria: It’s a citrus cologne, but what makes it nice is a rich sweetness of vanilla and sandalwood in the base. A nice fragrance, and if you have a chance to buy it for a reasonable price, I would go for it. June 15, 2012 at 7:53am Reply
