Samsara signifies "eternal rebirth" in Sanskrit and is part of the "wheel of life", a religious reference of Tibetan Buddhism. It evokes the perpetual voyage from one existence to the next, an invitation to serenity and harmony.
Created in 1989 by Jean-Paul Guerlain, Samsara is a homage to the woman of his life, his true revelation of love.
