This exceptional Guerlain perfume is priced at 10,000 euros
01 HEADING EAST
With the Bee Bottle, the young designer has cast a bridge between past and future; between East and West. An artistic encounter between two worlds. For Guerlain, Begüm Khan has created a work of art all in gold-plated bronze and encrusted with pavé gemstones; an encounter between East and West, as told by the designer:
“Since embarking on this collaboration, I have been constantly amazed by the synergies between myself, a young Turkish designer, and the centuries-old house of Guerlain.”
02 THE WORLD OF BEGÜM KHAN
Jewellery designer Begüm Kiroglu grew up in a family of Ottoman art collectors. Inspired by the East and by the opulence of Istanbul, she decided to create jewellery brand in 2012. With an abundantly whimsical imagination, she designs works of art that reinterpret nature, flora and fauna, forming a rich compendium of beasts and floral symbols.
03 THE BEE, SOURCE OF INSPIRATION
The theme of the bee is very dear to Guerlain, as a source of inspiration, a decorative motif and the hallmark of an ecological commitment. . A source of inspiration for Begüm Khan: ‘Bees have always intrigued me: they are a common sight, buzzing all around us, and yet their beauty is often overlooked. They are fragile yet strong, and there is something inspiring in this dichotomy. Bees are also synonymous with Guerlain, so they were a natural choice for our collaboration.” says the artist.
04METAMORPHOSIS OF THE BEE BOTTLE
Begüm Khan chose to create a jewel comprising elements that resonate with the West and the world of Guerlain. In the fantastical design, an imperial bee, the Guerlain symbol, escapes from its fanciful and luxurious universe to land for a fleeting moment on the bottle, fringed by four majestic flowers. Each piece is handmade by Turkish craftsmen in a historic workshop near the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, through a labour of love that imbues every bottle with its own personality and soul.
05 AN EXCEPTIONAL SAVOIR-FAIRE
Crafted in Istanbul workshop, the bronze-set decorative adornment is plated with 24-karat gold and paved with approximately 6,500 coloured gems. One by one, each stone is added by hand. Once placed on the bottle, the precious motif blots out the cartouche. This inimitable, meticulous feat of metalwork takes over fifty hours to complete.
06 LE SONGE DE LA REINE
The exclusives fragrance that comes with the creation, Le Songe de la Reine, brings us before the gateway into the East. This Eau de Parfum opens on a fresh and vibrant mix of mandarin and bergamot, revealing the freshness and the delight of fig notes in its heart, set upon a woody base of sandalwood and cedar notes. “This is a fragrance full of contrasts, wherein the woody notes, in their strength and sensuality, are confronted with the vegetal vitality of fig sap.” says Thierry Wasser, Guerlain House Perfumer.
Located in the golden triangle of Monaco, 26 Carré Or opens as one of the most prestigious residential high-rises in the world, designed by Humbert and Poyet. The building is surrounded by legendary landmarks, steps away from the famous Casino square, Hôtel de Paris, the One Monte Carlo shopping center, and Hotel Hermitage. All white, mirrored, detailed in brass and illuminated in the evening, the high-rise presides over the area with elegance enhancing the best from the luxury and contemporary design.
The building, developed by the Groupe Segond Immobilier, designed by architects Cabinet A. Giraldi, spans 19 floors, including a four-floor penthouse, a rooftop pool, and a spa. The modern design interiors were designed by Humbert and Poyet. The endless views, with rare 360-degree perspectives over Monaco, guided the two interior designers’ work well before its layout or decoration.
Each apartment was designed to honor the views of the city’s greatest landmarks, the sea, and the surrounding mountains. Humbert and Poyet’s signature use of noble materials, detail, and references to the Art Deco period define the space. The result is defiantly bold and luxurious for this luxury building. Each door is a statement – ornate, with brass paneling and bronze handles. The flooring is patterned in black and white marbles. Decadent staircases decorate the many duplexes, featuring ironwork guardrails. Exceptional shapes, lines, and materials decorate the spaces from floor to ceiling.
The apartments are adorned shades of beige, grey, and ivory all neutral tones setting an elegant tone. Marble is dominant, sourced from the best Italian quarries. Woodwork with details, brass and bronze finishing, mirrors, and geometric patterns create beautiful entryways.
Every detail is thought of, with intricate moldings and wall panels in each space. Everything is made by exceptional artisans, French and Italian, whose work and traditional expertise push the boundaries of craftsmanship, an endeavor held by Humbert and Poyet. Emil Humbert and Christophe Poyet designed interiors that highlight the impressive size and views of the living quarters in this luxury residence.
