    Default Monsieur Guerlain closed down

    I´m not sure if this have been posted, but I just realized Monsier Guerlain have closed down his social media pages. Instead he will reorganize the website as a sort of Guerlain encyclopedia.

    Sad news

    But thanks for spreading the love of Guerlain though the years!

    Will still be very useful.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    That's disappointing, but what's best for him is doing what's best for him. I think we all understand the importance of that.

    I enjoyed his wit, honesty, attractive Instagram account and informative website (essential reading for all Guerlain lovers.)

    Deleting the social media seems a tad harsh after all the work he's poured into them. Surely they'd have been better left inactive as deleted.

    yes, I did read his announcement on Facebook. I respect his decision as the encyclopedia was always his real passion. A real history of Guerlain.

    If I’m not mistaken Guerlain forced him to shut it down. Is that right? Seems like I read that on Kafkaesque.

    That was the other year. They had a dispute as any comment made by Monsieur Guerlain was actually thought to be official Guerlain comments and policy. Especially when he pointed out new releases any revamped fragrances once called something else, or totally reformulated and still with the original name. They settled it by M.Guerlain having a statement on this social media saying he did not work for Guerlain but just a love of the house.

    He had a Facebook group which was totally manic and had to get more admins in to run it.

    The Guerlain directory was the only part of his enterprise that I cared about. If that's coming back, I'll be satisfied.
    Rare, vintage, and niche off-site sales.
    Big list of niche splits.

    Again? I wonder if it was a Guerlain initiative.
    It will surely be a miss. Guerlain is one of the most interesting houses around.

    I just discovered this when I tried to go to his Facebook page now. Very sad to not a him around and his website was just spectacular and meticulously done. SO MUCH WORK had been put into it.
