My grandfather and father were perfumers in France and New York. Both did some work for Guerlain from the 1960s until the 1980s. The items we are selling are from their private collection(s), which we are helping my mother to streamline. These items were always stored in a safe, cool, dark place.
All the items we are selling are vintage collectibles. If an item is described as “Used,” my grandfather, father or their staff handled it. If a fragrance is described as “New In Box”, it is still a collectible and not meant for personal use since the essence will have changed over the years no matter how safely it is stored.Some vintage items have flaws consistent with age whether it is the essence/fragrance (even in proper storage can change colour or scent), packaging (yellowing, fading or dusty due to age) or the metal containers (oxidation from contact with the fragrance). In some instances, we prefer the experts clean these items, as this is not our expertise! For advertising and promotional materials, we describe and treat them in the same way.
