Guerlain has appealed against the judgement made by the Paris's Court of First Instance. This means that Insolence meanwhile will not be withdrawn from the shelves....
The flacon of Insolence would have been in fact inspired by a sculpture made by Serge Mansau, the bottle's designer, in 1973 as well as by studies of perfume bottles he made in 1996. The problem is that Guerlain cannot prove what the date and nature of the creation were because the blueprint for the flacon was registered in the form of a sealed envelope (pli cacheté CNISF) and the stocking site for these was destroyed in a fire in 2002.
You can take a peak at the said sculpture by Serge Mansau. He is one of the most important perfume flacon designers to date so the news come as quite of a shock. On the face of it, he seems to be one of the last persons on earth to need to copy given his creative mind.
