The honeycomb Guerlain perfume bottle has been around for 160 years now and to celebrate, Guerlain invited nine artists to create a new take on the iconic bottle.

The nine artisan interpretations include the works of gilders, leatherworkers and artists who work with feathers. Plenty of the designs include gold coloring, just like the original honeycomb design. The new interpretations range form luxe birdcage-like sculptures that encase the bottle to hand-stitched versions of the perfume bottle.

The nine twists on the iconic Guerlain perfume bottle will be displayed at the flagship Guerlain store on 68 Champs Elysées store from now until February 14th, 2014. After this time, the pieces will be sold to raise funds for the Institut National des Métiers d’art, which is France’s leading national institute of artisans.
