Lalique’s renowned name was established by French glass designer René Jules Lalique over a century ago and currently represents flawless ingenuity in jewellery, vases and clocks. Lalique’s array of perfumes feature beautiful scents in sophisticated, fragile, luminous and extravagant glassworks. Year after year, the brand releases a collectible limited-edition flaçon with intricate, delicate designs on the bottle, marrying a stunning fragrance with a masterpiece. Its most recent release is the Bacchantes Limited Edition 2017 bottle, with a poetic vision of the beauty of voluptuous, feminine curves as exquisitely expressed in glass.
   In addition, Lalique’s Rêve d’Infini is a precious creation reviving Lalique’s trademark, the infinity symbol. Perfumer Richard Ibanez assembles hints of floral aromas, leaving behind traces of rose absolute, cedarwood, peach, bergamot, lychee, freesia, vanilla musk and sandalwood, permitting the top notes and bottom notes to intertwine.
   Encre Noire à l’Extrême is a masculine fragrance that radiates with grandiose, dominating essences. The dark wood cap on the bottle is captivating and elegant. Bergamot, cypress, incense, Java and Haïti vetiver, iris, sandalwood, patchouli and Siam benzoin contribute to the masculinity of the scent.
   Les Compositions Parfumées comprises of five unisex fragrances, each containing highly concentrated scents of luxury contained in an ornate bottle. Gold, Silver, Bronze, Electrum and Zamak each have their own sweet and succulent scent that can be worn for any occasion.
   Meanwhile, Thierry Mugler’s divine eau de parfum Angel Muse was launched under the expression ‘the new addiction you will #HateToLove.’ The intergalactic theme extends from the bottle to the scent itself: the bottle is described as a ‘cosmic pebble’, with a silver lining around the edges and a transparent centre. The electrifying scent is enticing and powerful with lavish hints of grapefruit, pink pepper, patchouli, vetiver, rose and hazelnut.—Lola Cristall, Paris Editor
