The Lalique for Bentley Crystal Flying B paperweight has been adorning the desks of many Bentley enthusiasts. The relationship between the French crystal and glassware manufacturer and the British luxury automaker strengthens with the launch of the Lalique for Bentley Blue Crystal limited edition fragrance. The auto maker already boasts of an impressive fragrance collection for men. And the latest to join the range and an upgrade to the Lalique for Bentley Crystal Edition fragrance is the limited Blue Crystal edition by Lalique, its most expensive fragrance to date.
Described as an ‘overwhelming essence of masculinity’, the Lalique for Bentley Blue Crystal Edition is a follow-up to the brand’s Lalique for Bentley Crystal Edition series that launched last year.
The new Blue Crystal edition costs around $5,700, which, while expensive – is a fraction of Bentley’s most modestly priced Continental GT Coupe.
And what can you expect for your dollars? An artistic blend of midnight-blue crystal, really quite a sublime fragrance and luxurious design (naturally). Lalique brings the artistic midnight blue bottle to life by expertly playing with the pigments to create shimmering blue reflections in the magnificent crystal. The square shape of the flacon and the iconic Flying B Bentley wings mascot put together deilver unique visual impact. Hand-crafted by the French Maison in gleaming crystal, the dynamic of its wings epitomizes timeless beauty.
The Eau de Parfum itself is a combination of fine woody notes and exquisite leather, composed by perfumer Mylène Alran from the French perfume house Robertet, who also created the fragrance for the first edition. The top note is stimulating, with pink peppercorns and juniper berries, accompanied by a hint of fresh pear. In the heart note, Haitian and Javanese vetiver unfold their concentrated power, woody and invigorating. The base note includes essences of harmonious ambergris and musk, partnered with precious cedar wood and frankincense to round off the sensual experience.
The bespoke fragrance, perhaps unsurprisingly, is presented in bottle hand made from deep blue crystal. A perfect gift for the man who has it all, the Lalique for Bentley Blue Crystal limited edition fragrance will be available for $5,700. Since only 499 bottles of this nectar in blue falcon will be released this autumn, it is expected to fly off the shelves very soon before Christmas.
