Here are a few of the limited edition collector fragrance bottles that have launched since we last did a round-up for the 2007 holiday season. In most of these cases, the juice is unchanged, just the bottle is "special". Also note that a few of these may not be available in the US.
At Sephora, Yves Saint Laurent's Baby Doll. The "special, limited-edition bottle features the signature faceted crystal bottle shaped like a spinning top, with sweet, romantic graphics and a silver stopper", 50 ml for $52.
Also at Sephora, the Hugo Art Edition from Hugo Boss. You can see a 2007 Hugo Art Edition here. If there is anything worth knowing about the "art", Sephora isn't telling. 100 ml is $55.
At Neiman Marcus, an Estee Lauder Beautiful solid perfume in a compact designed by Jay Strongwater. "Beautiful Romantic Bloom", $325.
At Saks Fifth Avenue, Armani Code Elixir: "A limited edition elixir with atomizer. The most intense, mysterious, magnetic and sophisticated facet of seduction, as precious as a vintage jewel." 50 ml, $65.
At Marionnaud in France, a limited "Couture Edition" of Nina Ricci's L'Air du Temps, wrapped in a feather dress inspired by the designs of Creative Director Olivier Theyskens. 50 ml Eau de Toilette.
More Nina Ricci L'Air du Temps: a coffret with two 7.5 ml Lalique bottles of extrait. 227,20€ at Sephora in France.
At Harrods in the UK, Yves Saint Laurent Opium Legendes de Chine, a "precious and refined limited edition to celebrate the anniversary of the mythical fragrance". £60 for 50 ml Eau de Parfum.
