Van Cleef & Arpels will launch Féerie, a new fragrance for women, this coming August.
The scent will be a woody floral with violet developed by perfumer Antoine Maisondieu.
Féerie is aimed at the luxury market and will be priced higher than other fragrances in the Van Cleef & Arpels line. The bottle features "a tall sculpture in zamac of a fairy on a branch". It will be exclusive to Neiman Marcus in the United States, and will be available in 50 and 100 ml. (via cosmeticnews) Update: the notes for Féerie include violet, red berries, mandarin, rose, jasmine, iris and vetiver; the bottle was inspired by Van Cleef & Arpels' A Midsummer Night's Dream jewelry collection.
