Through his work, René Lalique explored the decorative possibilities of flora, fauna and the female form. Among fauna, the swallow particularly inspired him, which he then made the centrepiece of many jewels and decorative objects.

With precision choreography, four glass-masters gather the molten crystal, to fashion the body of the flacon using the technique of ‘Soufflé’.

In a silken swirl of fruity rose, heady jasmine and spicy clove flower, a cloud of delicately powdered iris suffuses the composition. In the heart notes, the fluttering, feminine bouquet is brightened with playful notes, vibrant green blackcurrant leaf lacing suave pear and sweetly musky blackberry.
