The addictive sweetness of white suede.
A SOFT, VELVETY INTERPRETATION OF LEATHER
As supple as light suede, infinitely luminous leather notes become as exquisite as beluga caviar. In referencing this pure luxury, Cuir Béluga carries with it a connotation of ultimate refinement.
Gracing the skin with softness and enhanced by refreshing tangerine, the white suede note flirts with intriguing immortelle, then softly sinks upon a velvety base, caressed by amber, heliotrope and, of course, vanilla.
THE FRAGRANCE ARTIST'S TOUCH
Typically tough leather becomes velvety and delicate like white suede, all enveloped in vanilla.
"If it were a design style, an interior decorated by Jean-Michel Frank."
Cuir Béluga’s white suede note recalls the décor style of Jean-Michel Frank. In the 1930s, Jacques Guerlain called upon the young decorator and architect to elegantly furnish the boutique at 68 Avenue des Champs-Élysées, whereupon he designed furniture all clad in white suede, exuding extreme modernity.
WHITE LEATHER ACCORD
Often dark and mysterious, the leather accord reveals a new face with Cuir Béluga. Combined with vanilla, it becomes powdery and addictive, evoking the softness of white suede.
At Guerlain, the leather accord asserts itself in legendary compositions like Habit Rouge.
In the Perfumer's Words: "Leather, usually so difficult to tame, is tanned to perfection here, becoming utterly mellowed and subdued. It exhilarates with wild sensuality."
THE ART OF BOTTLING
Taking inspiration from the Guerlain heritage Square Bottle (1870), the L’Art & La Matière bottle is an exceptional object whose design exudes unisex sophistication steeped with modernity.
