To celebrate the 110th anniversary of its historic address on Paris’ Avenue des Champs-Élysées, Guerlain’s myth of the legendary Flacon Tortue is being reborn in a prestigious numbered Métier d’Art edition. 

Cloaked in incandescent red, the perfumer has revealed a special edition crystal masterpiece entirely handcrafted by the House of Baccarat. 

The design, which echoes the original creation sculpted by the master glass-makers, featured an eye-catching “Baccarat red” glass design, infused with 24-carat gold, which turns red upon heating. Presented in a one-litre bottle, this unique anniversary creation is a true masterpiece. 

Inside the bottle is a special blend fragrance featuring fruity, colourful notes of blackcurrant berries, blended with the essence of rose softened by the mimosa blossom at its heart. The base notes combine the carnal accents of hibiscus seed with the enveloping tenderness of an almond wood accord.
