This beautiful perfume bottle was designed by Salvador Dali at the request of the fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli, and made by Baccarat. In the year when World War II came to an end, Dali used the sun to symbolize the joy of peace regained and incorporated it into an image of Louis XIV, the Sun King, who represented the glory of France.

Le Roy Soleil Extrême is a new fragrance for men launched by the Spanish house of Salvador Dali. Salvador Dali Le Roy Soleil Extrême is described as an aromatic, classic and elegant fougere fragrance. This fragrance is a new and modern interpretation of Le Roy Soleil Homme launched in 1998.
In tribute to French ‘Sun King’ King Louis XIV, whose influence extended worldwide, Salvador Dali painted the Roy Soleil watercolor. Le Roy Soleil Extrême is directly inspired by that painting, a tribute to power, luxury and virility.
Salvador Dali Le Roy Soleil Extrême opens with fresh citrusy notes of bergamot, lemon and pineapple leaf along with cardamom, lavender and green apples. The base impresses and lasts long on the skin with notes of haitian vetiver, amber, moss and musk.

A modern fragrance, contrasting freshness and intensity, matches the bottle design of matte black juxtaposed against brilliant gold. The embossed sun at the center of the bottle symbolizes the strength and triumphant spirit of this Eau de Toilette for men.
Salvador Dali Le Roy Soleil Extrême is available as 50 and 100ml Eau de Toilette.
