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 special edition bottles from Giorgio Armani and Jo Malone.
Giorgio Armani's Rose d'Arabie, done up in black and gold for the holidays. "Exclusive to Harrods this Christmas, Rose d’Arabie from Giorgio Armani is a heady floral fragrance, created as an ode to the essence of the majestic damascus rose. Spicy flashes of saffron at the outset transition into a heart of patchouli and dark woods, before a base of golden amber for a warm, sensual scent." £220 for 100 ml at Harrods in the UK.
And also from Armani, Si Passione in a similarly-themed holiday edition. In 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum at Nocibé in France.
Or if you prefer, Sì Nacre Sparkling Limited Edition: "At once chic, playful, intense, and soft at the same time, Sì Nacre Sparkling Limited Edition is a radiant perfume that leaves a sparkling effect on the skin. Achieve a perfect glow & dress your skin with the iridescent pearly shimmer of Sì, exclusively available at Arnotts. A perfume for women that is fresh, green and addictive in its initial impression, while the elegance of Freesia and the exquisite honey hues of Rose De Mai absolute make this perfume truly distinctive. The long lasting and sensual notes of Oakmoss and Patchouli softly define this fragrance as a captivating modern chypre." In 50 or 100 ml at Armani Beauty in the UK.
From Jo Malone, English Pear & Freesia in a gold-flecked bottle: "Glittering and golden. The sensuous freshness of just-ripe pears wrapped in a bouquet of white freesias. Mellowed by amber, patchouli and woods. Lavish and luscious." $140 for 100 ml at Bloomingdales.
Also from Jo Malone, a limited edition collection with four reissued fragrances, in collaboration with Savile Row tailors Huntsman. Amber & Patchouli, Assam & Grapefruit, Birch & Black Pepper and Whisky & Cedarwood are £120 each for 100 ml at Jo Malone in the UK.
