In the house signature bottle, designed in 1853 by Pierre-François-Pascal Guerlain for the Empress Eugénie, wife of Napoléon III, this precious bottle is adorned with the symbol of the Empire: the bee, which is now La Maison Guerlain's emblem.
Inside, the oriental-floral fragrance opens with mandarin orange, bergamot with underlying notes of red apple. The fragrance billows intoxicating magnolia caught in an accord of ylang ylang, jasmine and iris. The fragrance dries down to vanilla sweetened with luxurious white honey and kindled with warming amber.
Invoking the power of that one emotional moment when everything can change, L'Instant de Guerlain represents that one fleeting moment of awakened passion between man and woman, where time seems to stand still yet in a breath is gone.
Top notes: Bergamot, Mandarin Orange, Red Apple
Middle notes: Iris, Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Magnolia
Base notes: Musk, Amber, Benzoin, Vanilla, White Honey
