“I’m at the end of my career,” Guerlain, who officially retired as the house’s master perfumer in 2002, said at an event to mark the launch. “I decided to create a fragrance for myself.”
The final Jean-Paul Guerlain creation is comprised or two scents: Arsène Lupin Dandy and Voyou. The fragrances are aimed at younger men and both are housed in a simple wood-encased flacon. The fragranced and can be either layered or worn separately.
The launch coincides with Gurlain’s new book “Parfums d’Amour.” This journal will detail Guerlain’s world travels, the women he loved and his fragrance inspirations. It sounds juicy to me, that’s one book I’m adding to my reading list!
