Frédéric Malle celebrates 20 years with limited edition 100 ml bottles of seven fragrances (Bigarade Concentrée, Vétiver Extraordinaire, French Lover, L'Eau d'Hiver, Musc Ravageur, Carnal Flower and Portrait of a Lady) "elegantly clad in a frieze that tells the story of twenty years of creation". Available already in the EU, €215 each. Shown below the jump, the packaging for Vétiver Extraordinaire.
Pfff, to be honest, I’m not tempted at all by such offerings… Now, if they would have released special edition mini’s of each perfume at a reasonable price (read, less expensive than normally would be the case), that would be a celebration! But they didn’t… Easy pass!
Exactly. And they didn’t release my personal favorite anyway: Iris Poudre.
I think it is a really handsome design, but perhaps more self-congratulatory than consumer oriented?
I love this design but it’s not on any of my favorites.
They hit on 4 of mine, but unless they bring it out in 15 ml I’m not biting
R, they hit four of mine, too…same as yours I’m betting. Wish they’d keep the cheery caps on everything.
Agree — much nicer caps.
For Lipstick Rose I would have bought. Oh well!
When I first glanced at the picture, the bottles looked like they were smaller and I got my hopes up. But the special edition concept does not does not budge their position on my try/buy list.
Not sure about these, though I do like the caps. I know any limited-edition bottles have to include the Big 3 sellers–Ravageur, Carnal Flower, and POAL–but I wonder how they picked the other 3.
