Arsene Lupin: Dandy, Voyou
In pure Lupin and Guerlain style, both have the elegance that casts away limitations. Both boast a noble family bearing. Both are equally seductive.

Arsène Lupin leaves his card just as a woman leaves a trail of scent in her wake.
Jean-Paul Guerlain has engraved two unforgettable cards for him.
With his own distinctive writing style, infused with the most beautiful elements of Guerlain tradition, the freshest creativity and an immediately identifiable trademark, he signs a sumptuous leather oriental, Dandy, and a vibrant woody aromatic, Voyou. In pure Lupin and Guerlain style, both have the elegance that casts away limitations. Both boast a noble family bearing. Both are equally seductive: the dandy style of enlightened amateurs who know what they like and the jaunty “voyou” character of young gentlemen in search of a beautiful olfactory proposition…
The two claim their rightful place in “Les Parisiens”, a Collection that includes the men’s fragrances Derby, L’Ame d’un Héros and Chamade pour Homme… All of these fragrances must be deserved. They are sold exclusively in 50 points of sale worldwide and in Guerlain boutiques in Paris.
As for the more material detail, the bottles, Arsène would have never left it behind!
Because they have everything he could dream of: beautiful glass shapes simply framed in wood – darker for Dandy and lighter for Voyou: pared-down, minimal, cleverly powerful… But let’s play fair and close our eyes: for the double pleasure that he gives us, we will forgive him almost everything…
