To mark the 100th anniversary of its glassworks in Wingen-sur-Moder in France’s Alsace region, Lalique is launching the Fusion flacon, an intricately designed fragrance bottle that juxtaposes amber and colorless crystal.
Designed by Lalique’s in-house design studio overseen by Marc Larminaux, Lalique’s amber crystal Fusion flacon is shaped like a gob of molten glass. Topped with a black satin crystal stopper evocative of a glassmaker’s cane, it rests in a mailloche, the name given to the tool used to shape the molten glass. Here, a delicate fern motif is picked out in satin crystal against a clear crystal backdrop.
As for the secondary packaging, the flacon is nestled in an MDF coffret featuring a cherry wood veneer (Soixante-et-Onze) and brass feet and handles. The case's polished and gilded brass plates boast a fern motif.
The flacon holds a newly composed scent, created by Robertet perfumer Alexis Dadier. A reinterpretation of an amber fragrance, the extrait de parfum combines bitter almond, pink peppercorn, iris butter and white musk.
Just ten numbered flacons are available, priced at €25,000 each.
