Elevating fragrance to become a work of art, L’Art & La Matière echoes that irrepressible love of beauty, the very spirit of the House of Guerlain since its founding. L’Art & La Matière fragrances allow the finest raw materials used in Perfumery to boldly shine, revealing them under a new light and raising the scent up to the rank of full-fledged artistic masterwork. L’Art de Vivre – the home collection – elegantly extends the art of fragrance into one’s living space.
