My Exclusive Collection (MEC) offers four exceptional and unique fragrances created exclusively by Mr. Jean-Paul Guerlain, the legendary Perfume creator. The four new perfumes are: Acapulco, Aqua Vallis, Bouquet de Palmyre and Calice des Fleurs.
Acapulco – Fragrance for Men

An experienced horseman, this powerful perfume showcases his admiration and deep attachment to the equestrian world and its exquisite elegance. This fragrance is spicy vanilla and clove in head, has a touch of velvety almond in heart, amber and cedar wood in the bottom, with a subtle and sensual note brought by musk.

Heart Notes: Almond, Orange Blossom
Bottom Notes: Musk, Tonka Bean, Cedar, Amber
Aqua Vallis – Fragrance for Women and for Men
Aqua Vallis, literally Water from the Valley, celebrates the green, flowery and hilly place where Jean-Paul Guerlain was born. Combining his childhood memories with his traveller’s memories, Jean-Paul Guerlain deploys the score of Aqua Vallis as a melody that resonates with warm cardamom tones, pink pepper accents and radiant mandarin notes. The incense of Somalia is balanced with the candour of the rose, and the strength of patchouli unites with the sensuality of vanilla. Perfume both masculine and feminine, Aqua Vallis is developed as a serene dream by the perfumer-creator.

“Each of my new perfumes has a direct link to my own story, a personal memory and my perfume creation savoir-faire that I have been practicing for over 60 years now. It’s a real pleasure for me to be able to offer my new creations to new generations. More than ever, I wanted to engrave my work in the excellence of the French perfumery field.” – Jean-Paul Guerlain.

Calice des Fleurs – Fragrance for Women
The inspiration of Calice des Fleurs is in the charms of poetry, another muse of Jean-Paul Guerlain. The name of this perfume comes from the rhythms of Alfred de Musset’s poem, “Lucie”, which Jean-Paul Guerlain particularly cherishes.
Calice des fleurs is a love poem, a tribute to the feminine beauty that enchants the senses just as a word sometimes delights the heart and the mind.
