French Maison Lalique is presenting three new fragrances for their Les Compositions Parfumees collection which brings new colors, new aromas and new emotions in this luxurious line. The three new fragrances are exclusively presented at the TFWA 2019 exposition in Cannes.
A brilliant pioneer, René Lalique was the first to blend glass and gems in his ground-breaking Art Nouveau jewelry, just as perfumers were revolutionizing their art with amazing new materials. Today, the Fench Maison keeps his innovative spirit alive with the exclusive collection Les Compositions Parfumées, inspired by the alchemy of perfumery, jewelry and crystal-making.
Inspired by René Lalique’s mythical ‘Duncan’ collection, designed in 1931, the elegant satin-finished Art Deco flacons are topped with a white wooden cap bearing Lalique’s ‘Hirondelles’ (‘Swallow’) logo in gold. A golden metal pendant, also presenting the emblem, is tied around the neck of the f by a coloured cord, highlighting the exclusivity of the Collection. The flacons are presented in a luxurious white coffret with a magnetic clasp, lined in white padded fabric. It is protected by a coloured sleeve, matching the nuance of the fragrance, inscribed with its name on a white label.
Dressed in the delicate blue, gold and plum and palette of the three new scents, the streamlined form of Les Compositions Parfumées’ iconic flacon takes on a playful femininity.
Lalique Les Compositions Parfumées Blue Rise
Fresh. Luxuriant. Tropical… Blue Rise, a dive in a dewy floral paradise, by perfumer Vincent Ricord.
The one and only image I had in mind when I imagined Blue Rise was an immensely beautiful lagoon. A tropical emerald. Fresh, transparent, infused with naturality, this is a scent for a spontaneous, alluring woman with a touch of sophistication.
An emerald forest. A blue lagoon. A swirl of white petals, dancing in a transparent aqua pool. A delicate floral scent carried by a tropical breeze… A dream comes true. In Blue Rise, the unique fragrance of the tropical water jasmine is reinvented with a blend of natural jasmine sambac absolute and two magic molecules: the fruity, dewy Helional, and the green, tropical Undecavertol. Powdery iris concrete and musky cashmere wood add a precious backdrop to the luxuriant scenery… Dive in! You’re in paradise.
Lalique Les Compositions Parfumées Infinite Shine
Spicy. Fiery. Wild… Infinite Shine, a flamboyant veil of saffron and rose, by perfumer Corinne Cachen.
In the Middle-East, I had the privilege of experiencing an unforgettable ritual. The moment when men and women scent their garments in the smoke of smouldering oud, the folds of gold-embroidered fabric swirling and fluttering, filling the whole room with fragrance. This was my inspiration to create this rich duo of sensuous rose and wild saffron.
The flamboyant colours of a sunset on desert dunes. The sensuous perfume rituals of the Orient. Channel your inner Scheherazade with Infinite Shine, a flamboyant veil of rose, sandalwood and saffron. Here, the orange spice expressed by Safranal, the molecule that produces its warm, leather-tinged scent. A crimson rose fires up its sensuality. Creamy sandalwood tempers its animal facets.
Lalique Les Compositions Parfumées Velvet Plum
Lush. Glam. Bohemian… Velvet Plum, a sensual suede and cashmere wrap, by perfumer Valérie Garnuch-Mentzel.
I was inspired by the beauty and velvety touch of suede. I instantly wanted to reveal its beauty through the contrast of Suederal, a silky soft molecule, and dark, mysterious patchouli. A bohemian duo that feels raw yet sensuous, mellowed by a feminine accord of fruity, floral and powdery notes. Simply sublime.
Is it the real life? Is it just fantasy? With Velvet Plum, slide on your butter soft suede jacket. Wrap yourself in a fabulous, plum-coloured cashmere shawl – the truly miraculous molecule Cashmeran, as complex as any natural ingredient with its facets of musk and sun-warmed wood. Then step into a purple haze of sweet heliotrope, powdery iris and velvety patchouli, to pick an armful of exotic flowers, hypnotic tuberose and apricot-scented osmanthus… Express your Bohemian soul!
Lalique Les Compositions Parfumées Blue Rise, Velvet Plum and Infinite Shineare available as 75ml Eaux de Parfums from October 2019.
Come into the wonderful world of Lalique.
