The legend of the Flacon aux Abeilles
Almost 170 years after it was concued, the legend of the Flacon aux Abeilles is still thriving. It was originally created for the wedding of Empress Eugenie and Napoleon III, and now it is re-introduced as Guerlain’s signature fragrance.
Guerlain first produced the Flacon aux Abeilles in 1853. At the time, it was considered to be the company’s best work. Today, it is still manufactured in the same glass factory where it was first produced. It is still a popular fragrance among collectors around the world.
The Flacon aux Abeilles was modeled after the Vendome column in Paris, located at 12 rue de la Paix. It was sculpted with abelles and festons and was decorated with gold by Sylvie Larobe. It was also filled with Cologne imperiale.
Today, the Flacon aux Abeilles is still manufactured by the same factory. A new edition was released in 1999, designed by Robert Granet. This bottle is also embellished with Swarovski crystal drops.
