Guerlain - la vitrine





This simple window in the Marais has it all:

La Tour Eiffel
A fragrance with a sexy name
A salute to the very fashionable Parisians
and....

A reflection!



Guerlain
10, rue des Francs-Bourgeois
75004, Paris

For more reflections go to James' Weekend Reflection

Hello Genie:
This is simply fabulous. What a spectacular image and one with which you must surely feel particularly pleased.

a perfect sum-up of french fashion!

Very interesting, Genie!

The scene reminds me of certain Moulin Rouge posters by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

Hi Genie, I was in Harrods the other week and in the pefume department . One of the ladies that stepped forward and sprayed me was working for this company .. They gave me a beautiful material square with the little black dress on too.

Nice one.. I used to pass by the Guerlain shop on Place Vendome/Rue de Castiglione; not sure if it's still there. Those were the days when you could only guy Guerlain at Guerlain. I love L'Heure Bleue and the bottle you show looks like HB's bottle.

I love this window! I don't know how the French come up with such marvelous window dressings! This is one of the best I've seen. :)

Have a great weekend Genie. :)♥♥

Susan said...

What more could you want! Love the crop on this.

Alexa said...

Love the name (and the whole display, of course)! I only—and always—wear YSL's Paris, but if I ever crave a change . . .

James said...

Oh wow, it does have it all and I love it all! The paper cuts magnify the whimsy. Beautiful.

What is quite funny about this window and the marketing is the music... These Boots Were Made for Walking" Just click on the name under the photo to see a short (15 second) video. I would have selected something more French!

Bibi, there are three stores in Paris now. One on Champs-Elysées, one on Rue Tronchet (9th), and this one. I did read that the original was on Rue de Rivoli in 1828.

V, you made me laught outloud!

Rita, send me an email, svp.

Grace, well if you can figure that out let me know!

'Tsuki, je sais pas, mais je le crois.

Anne, I would love to have another stroll through Harrods!

Have a wonderful weekend, all!

Bises,
Genie
