Guerlain has launched L’Heure Blanche, a new limited edition musky floral…
From Lalique, the 2020 crystal limited edition of Lalique de Lalique, Orchidée. “It is the pure, round shape often chosen by René Lalique to showcase the floral décors of his perfume bottles that the House has elected for this new offering. Against a transparent crystal background that reveals the tender pink shade of the fragrance, graceful orchid branches bloom. As satiny as living flowers, the petals have gleaming polished reliefs to underline their design. The elegant flacon is crowned with a stopper in the shape of an orchid petal, its exceptionally delicate veins a demonstration of the outstanding skills of Lalique’s master-glassmakers.” 250 ml Parfum, $1800. (You can find a list of past editions here.)
