EXCEPTIONAL BEE BOTTLE
Begüm Khan is sweept the Bee Bottle into her sumptuous world of imaginary animals.
The iconic bottle, in its hand-painted in fine 24-carat gold version, is reinvented as a masterful Métier d’Art piece adorned with Begüm Khan’s iconic beetle.
The Exceptional Piece combines a drive for excellence and a passion for art and for the perfect beauty of nature shared by the two Houses.
The Limited edition bottle is the result of a shared inspiration drawn from the perfect beauty of nature and the sublimation of bestiary.
This masterful piece marks the encounter between the iconic symbol of Guerlain, the Imperial Bee, which has adorned the Bee bottle since 1853, and the beetle, Begüm Khan's favourite animal, considered as an absolute lucky charm.
Surrounded by a myriad of dazzling crystals, the fabulous insect landed majestically on the one-liter Bee Bottle to make it shine.
