Lalique Collectible Bacchantes Crystal Flacon
Lalique releases special edition collector’s flacons every year, and this 2017 ‘Bacchantes’ crystal flacon houses a delightful feminine fragrance of jasmine, Bulgarian roses, pear, Bourbon vanilla and white musk, among others.
Marc Jacobs Eau So Decadent
Fashion meets fragrance with Marc Jacob’s floral and fruity Eau So Decadent EDT spray. The brand’s iconic handbag design inspired the flacon’s shape, including fun and feminine little details like a shortened gold chain and an arched pink and teal snakeskin cap to match the hypnotic liquid within. Long-lasting scents of nashi pear and white amber make this fragrance highly loved - and highly collectible.
Amouage Imitation Woman
Inspired by Amouage Creative Director Christopher Chong’s exploration of the neon lights, graffiti and the mix of multicultural influences in 1970’s New York, the new Imitation fragrance is encased in vibrant crystal bottle displaying various colour hues, completed with a Topaz Aurore Swarovski crystal on the bottle cap.
Bulgari Omnia Indian Garnet
Housed in a case that may very well have emerged from the Museum of Modern Art, Bulgari’s Omnia fragrance of Indian Garnet takes inspiration from the majestic mandarin garnet from India, a suitable shade to match the subtle scents of tuberose and osmanthus flowers.
Paris Hilton Rosé Rush
The evocative silhouette in Paris Hilton’s Rosé Rush flacon reflects Hollywood’s old-world glamour, sporting a blend of rose petals, Neroli, lychee, peony and papaya among other enticing elements.
Miu Miu L’Eau Rosée
Look to Miu Miu’s iconic matelassé bottle for a mesmerising display of light bouncing off angles and ridges against the pale pink glow of the juice within, all tied up nicely with a navy blue bow for contrast. A must-try if you appreciate luxurious hints of blackcurrant, musk and lily of the valley.
