Hubert de Givenchy’s Perfume Corner

In 2018 the legendary founder of the Givenchy maison gave a rare interview to the Financial Times‘ journalist Nick Foulkes. The article included pictures of the designer’s residence, Château du Jonchet, located in Northern France.

I’m thankful to the photographer Dylan Thomas for snapping the picture above, which shows the fragrances the designer used.

I’m not surprised to see one of the most beautiful rechargable bottles by Guerlain, Le Sucrier de Madame, designed by Robert Goossens and first introduced in 1980 to house the maison’s eaux de toilette.

A massive bottle of Monsieur de Givenchy takes centre stage. The citrus aromatic fragrance, created by Francis Fabron, was launched in 1959.

The white bottle with gold accents is another Guerlain product: it’s the deodorant of L’Heure Bleue.

The last bottle is another Givenchy best-selling fragrance – Ysatis. One of the most distinctive scents of the 1980s, it was created by Dominique Ropion and launched in 1984.

Thanks to Alindri for the IDs.
