This luxury fragrance offering showcases an ambrosial collection of 21 Eaux de Parfum that presents a unique customization opportunity. Clients are not only able to select their own signature fragrances; they also get to personalize their own bottles with the luxurious cap plate, colorful cord, and seal of their choosing. And then, the pièce de resistance: Guerlain engraves the bottle right on the spot, resulting in an exquisite gift for oneself or a loved one.

“The reopened Guerlain Boutique at The Breakers is a beautiful new space full of wonders,” says Veronique Courtois, CEO of Guerlain. “L’Art & La Matiere, our crown jewel of Haute Parfumerie, is sure to inspire visitors as they immerse themselves in the bespoke savoir-faire of the Maison.”

The fragrances that comprise L’Art & La Matière have been skillfully curated by Guerlain’s Master Perfumer Thierry Wasser, who graduated as a Fine Fragrance Perfumer from the prestigious Givaudan Perfumery School located in Geneva, Switzerland. Having learned many production secrets from Jean-Paul Guerlain himself, Wasser—a noted figure in the contemporary fragrance world and a recipient of the French Legion of Honor Award—is the fifth perfumer in The House of Guerlain’s history.

Inspired by the aesthetic of its Parisian flagship on the 68 Champs-Élysées, Guerlain’s boutique at The Breakers boasts a sleek and modern interior featuring gold accents and precious materials—both natural and textured.
