A tribute to the femme-enfant, so wonderfully interpreted by Romy Schneider in Sissi: The Young Empress. A tribute also to history: Guerlain fondly remembers being distinguished as the very official and exclusive “Her Majesty Empress Eugenia’s patented Perfumer” in 1853. Seems like only yesterday!

This Holiday, Kiss Kiss Gloss shows extravagance by multiplying glitter effects with three new shades: 807 Perle de Lune, 808 Ambre Precieuse and 809 Rubis Rose. This clever gloss may be used on bare lips, or as a topcoat to boost the effects of Rouge G. The chic mini bottles are also decorated with a black lace design.

Finely decorated with screenprinted lace, the white-gold lacquered bottle boasts a long black-tasseled atomizer—an ultrafeminine look reminiscent of beauty objects found on imperial vanity tables.
