PALMER Editorial Director Stefano Tonchi and Guerlain Master Perfumer Thierry Wasser invited guests to a discussion about fragrance creation and Guerlain’s L’Art & La Matière collection in the exclusive Flagler Club at The Breakers Palm Beach.
Guests included: Hillie Mahoney, Arianna Boardman, Gayfred Steinberg & Michael Shnayerson, Len Lauren, Sybil Yurman, Susan Bodnar & Tim Malloy, Christine Pressman, Alex Hamer, Sharon Fortenbaugh, Eric Viner, Rick Rose, Kim Charlton, Jospeh Hernandez and others, who were also invited to visit the Guerlain boutique in the courtyard of The Breakers.
Visitors to the freshly-imagined Guerlain boutique—inspired by Guerlain’s Parisian flagship on 68, Champs-Élysées, with a sleek and modern design embellished with the brand’s hallmark gold accents and natural, textured materials—could also try the PALMER Choice fragrance, Herbes Troublantes, with an exclusive PALMER Green Cap and Cord:
A vibrant and musky interpretation of freshness, Herbes Troublantes evokes the gentleness of a restful break. Beneath its bucolic shell, the fresh aromatic fragrance arouses powerful, vibrant emotions. The very spirit of Eau de Cologne is revisited here, draped in a musky, cottony veil combined with the charm of sparkling Calabrian bergamot and refreshing herbs. Herbes Troublantes is the new name of the “Un Dimanche à la Campagne.”
“[In this new space], clients can discover our exclusive creations across fragrance, skincare and makeup, immersing themselves into the bespoke savoir-faire of the Maison,” explains Veronique Courtois, CEO of Guerlain. “Our crown jewel of Haute Parfumerie, L’Art & La Matiere, is sure to inspire the Palm Beach community who visit The Breakers to find their signature scent.”
The boutique’s fragrance offerings showcase the beauty brand’s exclusive collection of 21 Eaux de Parfum with an exclusive customization opportunity, where clients can select their fragrance and personalize their bottle with a choice of cap plate, cord and seal.
“Rare, iconic, incomparable—Guerlain’s legacy is second to none,” says John Zoller, senior vice president of retail operations at The Breakers Palm Beach. Guerlain operates only a few storefronts across the United States, and the one right here in Palm Beach may just be their best yet.
