More limited edition collector fragrance bottles, with the usual disclaimers: in most of these cases, the juice is unchanged, just the bottle is “special” (or not, as the case may be), and some of these may not be available in the US.
From Bath & Body Works, a limited edition of their popular Japanese Cherry Blossom designed by Established NYC. $34.50 for 75 ml Eau de Toilette at Bath & Body Works.
Moving a bit up the price scale, the 2011 limited edition for women from Lalique. This year's model features butterflies landing on poppy flowers, and as always contains the fragrance Lalique de Lalique. $1500 on backorder at Neiman Marcus.
From Annick Goutal, a collector bottle of Eau d'Hadrien: "For the 30th anniversary of the House, Camille Goutal creates for Eau d'Hadrien, its mythical fragrance, a special collector bottle, in limited edition. Adorned with precious pendants, symbolic of the House and beautifully engraved medallions designed by renowned jeweler Arthus Bertrand, the ribbed bottle becomes jewel." 108€ at Annick Goutal.
From Guerlain, two collector bottles for holiday 2011: at left, Shalimar in the Fourreau du Soir edition (50 ml Eau de Parfum), due to launch in October. At right, Habit Rouge in a reusable red leather case — the Habit du Cuir edition (100 ml Eau de Toilette), also to launch in October. (via prime-beaute)
That Shalimar bottle is spectacular.
I don’t know why, but I’m not feeling the love.
Me neither…maybe it doesn’t photograph well..
I prefer the Shalimar bottle without the lace
and I love the Bath & Bosy Works cherry blossom bottle
do they sell B&BW in the UK?
I missed nearly all of the ldt edition posts this year :/
I just a look thru them now, and the ones I want are Flowerbomb le Paris(or whatever it’s called, the Paris one anyway). the wax logo on the side isn’t black, it’s pink. I have the refillable Flowerbomb and the wax logo is pink. so I wonder if the Paris one is.
and Balenciaga Paris 20ml
I don’t think they sell it in the UK, but I don’t really know.
I want that 20 ml Balenciaga bottle too!
ah, we have Lush anyway and Bodyshop.
and the only place online I’ve seen the 20ml Balenciaga is John Lewis
Is it the classic Shalimar or is Forreau de Soir a flanker?
reusable leather case… but reusable for WHAT?
when you finish this bottle of Habit Rouge, you are obviously going to buy another bottle of Habit Rouge. so you take the empty bottle out of the leather case and put the new one in.
Now if only Shalimar smelled as great on me as it does on everyone else…sigh – bottle envy!
I’m not a huge fan of pendants on perfume bottles, which seems to be a thing.
Hands off that Shalimar bottle- IT WILL BE MINE
(BYW- what is Fourreau du Soir?- as if it mattered)
It must be something along the lines of evening gown / evening robe.
The Lalique bottle…so pretty.
Oh gosh darn it. It’s back ordered (at $1500 a bottle- me-ow!)
Congratulations, Lalique, way to make Xerjoff look cheap! I think one can buy maybe three of their bottles for that price.
So, how would people spend $1500? First up for me: the Amouage sample set. Next, to get my crystal fix, a pretty vase or bowl, along the lines of Monique Lhuillier for Royal Doulton. After that, I would have a shopping elf run out and buy me vintage perfumes I want, but am too lethargic to chase myself. Oh, and maybe a Serge Lutens bell jar of something, depending on how busy the elf is…
OOOOooooh! I like the way you think! I concur with the Amouages and the SL bell jar notion. . .I think I would add a few OJ bottles in parfum concentration. Maybe I’d finally be brave enough to invest in some lovely body creams, too. I hear the Amouage ones are quite decadent!
Amouage body cream *faints*
Golly. You might need some “smelling salts” to wake you from that faint! Here kitty, kitty, take a sniff of Memoir to dull the pain. . . *giggle*
I can’t decide on the Lalique bottle — pretty, but also looks like crumpled paper?
