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. Today's post includes collector bottles from Acqua di Parma and Loewe; a new purse spray for Cartier La Panthère; new concentrations for Kenzo Jeu d'Amour and Narciso by Narciso Rodriguez; and new packaging for solid perfumes from Ormonde Jayne.
From Acqua di Parma, a special edition of Colonia Essenza: "The decoration on Acqua di Parma's Special Edition black bottle is inspired by the tuxedo and bow tie, an elegant and unique pattern, entirely handcrafted by Italian master glassmakers. This refillable bottle becomes a collector's item for the connoisseurs of Colonia Essenza." 180 ml, £140 at Selfridges in the UK.
And coming soon from Acqua di Parma, a special edition of Magnolia Nobile: "With decorative motifs inspired by the aesthetics of Art Deco jewellery, the entire surface of the signature bottle features a 24k gold accent etched with a delicate sinuous motif." Launching in August in 100 ml. (via fashioninsight.co.uk)
From Loewe, a collector bottle of Aire Loewe celebrating the perfume's 30th anniversary. 300 bottles were hand made by La Real Fábrica de Cristales de la Granja. (via perfumeriacosmetica)
From Cartier, a purse spray for La Panthère Eau de Parfum, with 25 ml spray, 75 ml refill plus black suede pouch. At Harrods, £93.
From Kenzo, a new 'fresher and lighter' Eau de Toilette concentration of Jeu d'Amour, with pear, lemon blossom, freesia, tuberose, white musk and cedar. In 30, 50 and 100 ml. (via leparisien.fr)
From Narciso Rodriguez, a new Eau de Toilette for Narciso: "Minimalist and beautiful, Narciso celebrates the art of seduction in an understated way. Where the Eau de Parfum is carnal, this Eau de Toilette is magnetic, lending a hypnotising lightness of touch to the familiar, sensuous character of the original. The Narciso Eau de Toilette opens with a delicate combination of peony and Bulgarian rose, before a heart of signature musk envelops like a second skin. In the base, an elegant duo of cedar woods is joined by vetiver for a mesmerising dry down." In 30, 50 and 90 ml, at Escentual in the UK.
From Ormonde Jayne, new packaging for the line's solid perfumes. Available in Ormonde Woman, Osmanthus, Ta'if and Tolu, $176 each at Ormonde Jayne.
