Bunch o’ limited edition collector bottles 2018, part 4

More limited edition collector fragrance bottles, with the usual disclaimers: in most of these cases, the juice is unchanged, just the bottle is “special” (or not, as the case may be), and some of these may not be available in the US. Today’s post includes special edition bottles from Givenchy, Jo Malone, Guerlain, Lancome and Clarins.

From Givenchy, Ambre Tigré, “reimagined by artist Anna Borowski in an ephemeral collaboration”: “Created in a marriage of olfactory art made by the House of Givenchy and the creations of the talented designer, a collaboration rich in escapism and poetry, the warm and enchanting world of this divine scent opens with notes of sweet and sensual amber. Cistus labdanum is revealed with animalic and herbaceous notes to softly mingle with sweet, balsamic vanilla. Presented in a bottle that depicts a miniature cabinet of curiosities, gently spritz to savour in this luminous, mesmerising fragrance.” £1,100 for 100 ml Eau de Parfum at Harrods in the UK…

Holiday fragrance gifts 2017, part 7

We wrap up (ha) our series on fragrance related holiday gifts with the luxury editions — this post is (relatively, sort of) affordable luxury, and following shortly will be part 8, the crazy expensive luxury edition. Not surprisingly, the bottles also get better looking as we move into the higher prices.

The Romance Holiday Limited Edition evokes a winter fairy tale, transforming the iconic scent into an eye-catching holiday keepsake.” $94 for 100 ml at Macy’s
