With February 10 marking the beginning of The Year of the Dragon, a blazing symbol of power and strength, Guerlain has created a limited edition dedicated to the Chinese New Year; a first in the brand’s history.

The mythic Bee Bottle has temporarily exchanged its legendary transparency and gold for scarlet red, adorned with a brass dragon covered in 24 carat gold and designed by Parisian jeweller Francesco Truscelli.

Refined and delicate, Francesco Truscelli welcomes the Chinese New Year with an opulent dragon, gilded in 24-carat gold and decorated with 142 sparkling Swarovski® crystals, plus a trail of faceted crystals around its graceful neck. This stunning creation epitomizes the pairing of two emblems, the imperial symbol and the most majestic of legendary creations,” said Guerlain in a statement.

This exceptional bottle will preciously contain as the fragrance chosen to illustrate this new year, namely Néroli Outrenoir, a scented chiaroscuro, from the L’Art & La Matière collection.

This limited and numbered edition of 1,855 pieces of 125ml is presented with a 30ml travel spray and a funnel to pour the fragrance into the spray.
