The Comte d’Artois, Louis XVI’s younger brother, then made the bet, a little crazy, let’s say -le, to build a castle in 64 days, in honor of Marie-Antoinette. The challenge was met thanks to a multitude of people who worked day and night. Once the castle was built, it was surrounded by magnificent gardens, with among others, 1200 species of varieties of roses … The gardens of Bagatelle were born! It is from these sumptuous gardens steeped in history that Jean-Paul Guerlain decided to draw inspiration from. 4th generation of Guerlain perfumers, Jean-Paul Guerlain succeeds Jacques Guerlain, his grandfather. Able to recognize more than 3000 different smells, Jean-Paul Guerlain is impressive and very talented.
