Guerlain presents Colour Collection Flacon Quadrilobé as a set of five fragrances which is “a response to the challenge of creating associations and synthesis between certain colors and scents”. The Quadrilobé association goes back to 1908 when it was first created by Baccarat in 1908 for Jacques Guerlain’s perfume Rue de la Paix. The bottle, which is now produced by Verreries Brosse, is used for private and exclusive collections.
For the Colour Collection, the famous bottle is presented in five different colors for the first time, referring to five types of precious gems and containing five different fragrances selected from the Les Exclusifs collections. The sapphire bottle contains L’Heure de Nuit (2012), the ruby bottle features Oriental Brûlant (2008), Santal Royal (2014) comes in a green bottle that represents emerald, amber is the color of Spiritueuse Double Vanille (2007), and amethyst is the color for L’Eau de Parfum du 68 (2013).
Each 125 ml bottle comes in a luxurious amethyst box with the Guerlain symbol of the sun. Priced at €650 ($725), they will be sold starting June 2016 in the Guerlain boutique at Place Vendome.
