The newest release in the Lalique Crystal Limited Edition collection, Orchidée is the embodiment of fine craftsmanship.
Renowned for its exquisite decorative glassware and jewellery since it was founded by René Lalique in 1888, Lalique has, more recently, made a name for itself in the world of fragrance. After producing delicate glass and crystal bottles for the perfume industry since the 1900s, working with prestigious brands such as Coty, Houbigant, Worth and Guerlain, in 1992, Lalique launched its own elegant fragrance, Lalique de Lalique.
Bringing together the brand’s pedigree in both glassmaking and fine perfumery, the Lalique Crystal Limited Editions are yearly releases of the House’s signature fragrance, held in limited-edition crystal flacons that are inspired by the work of René Lalique.
The latest addition to the Lalique Crystal Edition stable is Orchidée, inspired by the floral muse behind some of René Lalique’s most beautiful glass designs. An exotic flower that became a symbol of Art Nouveau, the rare and precious orchid is a fitting adornment for the floral and feminine Lalique de Lalique.
Orchidée represents the exceptional craftsmanship of the master glassmakers at the cristallerie Lalique: the rounded crystal flacon features delicate gold orchids and is sealed with an intricate orchid-petal stopper. Limited to just 1,500 pieces, each one is individually numbered and signed, and sure to become a collector’s item.
