French perfume and skincare house Guerlain celebrated its iconic status as a fragrance house with “The Exclusive Collections” exhibition featuring two limited-edition fragrances and other exquisite scents. The exhibition was held at 39 Conduit Road in Mid-levels Central, on the 68th Floor of a duplex.
A treat for perfume lovers, they laid out their unique and one of a kind perfumes like the Guerlain Parfum des Champs-Élysées, an iconic fragrance created by Jacques Guerlain in 1913, and L’Heure Bleue, a 100-year-old perfume.
For the exhibition, Guerlain showcased some of the most expensive perfumes ever to be brought to market. The Parfum des Champs-Élysées’s bottle design was tweaked from its original turtle-shaped bottle in Baccarat crystal to adorn the gilded skyline of famous Parisian monuments and is priced at a hefty HK$480,000, with only 1 bottle allocated to Hong Kong. There are only 30 of these 1-litre bottles produced in the world.
The L’Heure Bleue celebrates its 100th anniversary. The 490ml blue bottle is made of Baccarat crystal that is blown, cut, polished and engraved by hand and priced at HK$134,000.
