The masculine fragrance Héritage de Guerlain
This is precisely what we find in the Héritage fragrance, a woody and spicy juice designed with nobility by the talented Jean-Paul Guerlain.
The authenticity of the Maison Guerlain bottled h2 >
If for many years perfumery was considered to be a very creative field constantly in search of novelties, the end of the 20th century, for its part, marked a return to the sure values of Haute Parfumerie. This was characterized by a quest for serenity combined with a desire for transmission. This is how Guerlain developed its Héritage fragrance. The latter’s ambition is to draw its source from the rich brand past while giving us the image of a man resolutely turned towards the future. Thus, Heritage appears to be a kind of temporal bridge linking the men of the past to those of today. In other words, Héritage is a perfume that aims to be transmitted from generation to generation, perpetuating past traditions while enriching them with incessant developments. In addition, let us note that this juice was developed by the last descendant perfumer of the Guerlain house, the talented Jean-Paul Guerlain. Indeed, it has currently given way to Thierry Wasser, an extremely talented perfumer but not from the Guerlain family line. Heritage thus marks in a way the passing of the torch from Jean-Paul Guerlain to his worthy successor. It celebrates the gift of transmission, drawing inspiration from the generations of yesterday and being dedicated to those of tomorrow.

The timeless flavor of the Heritage fragrance
Héritage is a juice that has many facets, as if all the knowledge accumulated in perfumery had to emerge through it. It is at the same time fresh, woody and spicy, past and present, noble and relaxed. Heritage has multiple contrasts and even draws its richness through them to form a perfect accord. Inheritance opens with extravagantly fresh top notes. Its invigorating radiance results from a duo of bergamot and lemon. At this moment, one of the most emblematic aromatic materials of men’s perfumery makes its appearance: lavender. This is then followed by a more spicy heart containing pepper and coriander. Thus, the Guerlain man never seems to lack boldness and character. He then asserts his virility in the wake of this perfume. Inheritance ends with a richer and woody accord combining cedar and patchouli while enhancing them with a more sensual note of leather. What is more, the famous Guerlinade is also present and closes this essence gently with hints of vanilla and tonka bean.
The Guerlain house is certainly one of the oldest perfume houses in Paris. Better still, since the 19th century, it has offered us the beauty of major accords handed down from generation to generation by Guerlain perfumers, each more talented than the next . However, this family saga will see its end in the 90s with the very last perfume signed by Jean-Paul Guerlain and the beginning of the new era, that of Thierry Wasser. Heritage will therefore be the olfactory witness of this transition …
Heritage or the affirmation of the Guerlinade by Jean-Paul Guerlain
Every man from the Guerlain family has touched, from near or far, to the perfumed organs of the house. Each perfumer until the arrival of Thierry Wasser was a descendant of the founder of the house Pierre-François-Pascal Guerlain. But this time, the end of the 20th century will mark a decisive turning point in this family saga, there will be no more Guerlain perfumers at Guerlain. Héritage, released in 1992, will therefore be the last Guerlain perfume signed by a Guerlain descendant, it will therefore wonderfully symbolize this major change.
Héritage is not only the olfactory testament of Jean-Paul Guerlain , it is also the messenger of the historical values of the whole house of Guerlain while embodying this futuristic and original spirit that each of the perfumes composed by Jean-Paul Guerlain has been able to bring to the skies.
Regarding the precious “heritage” of Heritage, it will be the revelation of the famous Guerlinade which best symbolizes it. Until then, this agreement common to all Guerlain perfumes was only subjective and only whispered among informed audiences. With Héritage, Jean-Paul Guerlain dares for the first time to speak publicly about this famous Guerlinade, the secret is lifted.
“In the Héritage press kit, for the first time, Guerlain will highlight, and reappropriate this term. Finally, the veil will be lifted on the mystery of this olfactory signature called “Guerlinade”. In the same way that we recognize the origin of a great wine, or the composer of a symphony, we perceive the Guerlain stamp. “& Nbsp; Sylviane Delacourte about Héritage and the Guerlinade.
Racy spicy accords and legendary scents for a fabulous Guerlain Héritage
Héritage is therefore asserting itself as a pure Guerlain product by displaying for the first time the Guerlinade in its composition. But Héritage will be far from being just a pure child of the Guerlinade, it is above all, the perfumed child of the brilliant and avant-garde Jean-Paul Guerlain. A perfumer who has never hesitated to play with modernity to highlight the historic accords of the house.
Héritage will therefore offer the fabulous marriage between a prestigious past and a future that is shaping up with a racy personality. In fact, the top notes of Héritage of bergamot, lavender and lemon are traditionally linked to the classic accords of men’s perfumery. They are also reminiscent of the magnificent Eaux offered by each Guerlain perfumer.
But the heart of cilantro and pink pepper from Heritage is far more futuristic than anchored in the past by offering a spicy and sparkling facet to this new man. However, the greedy and sensual depths of tonka bean, vanilla and patchouli will plunge this man of Heritage back into the sensual beauties of the so fabulous Guerlinade.
