Guerlain have (supposedly) reworked yet another one of their limited releases: Cologne du 68 (2006) is being relaunched as Parfum du 68. Let's hope they really did some work on the juice and not just poured the leftovers from Cologne into a new bottle when no one was looking.
Cologne 68 is a very nice unisex gourmand with a classic Guerlain touch. I am happy it's back in production again and looking forward to sampling & comparing.
Guerlain's flagship store at 68, Champs Elysees will be re-open for business on Nov. 19, its internal space has been extensively refurbished, and will provide 1,600 square meters of space. To celebrate the re-opening of headquarters, Guerlain will launch a new bottle of perfume called Le Parfum du 68.
It's composition is based on the Cologne du 68 recipe with careful revisions. Infused with spices, everlasting flower, tonka bean, benzoin, incense and leather.
75 ml EdP. The bottle is etched with a rendering of the facade of the Guerlain flagship boutique.
To be sold only at Maison Guerlain.
Perfumer: Thierry Wasser
