Lalique – 130 years old

Lalique is one of my favorite brands ever… I have always been so in love with the crystal pieces, especially the vases… that I must confess that I never really paid attention to the perfumes or even the candles

Until this week…

I was invited to the 130th year celebration of the brand… and you live and learn…

Discovered that Lalique is way more than the crystal pieces I am used to see…

It is world of exquisite odors translated into luxurious perfumes and candles…

I was astonished to hear how Lalique decided to celebrate its 130th birthday… by developing a very special perfume… mixing 3 types of jasmine into an exclusive and involving scent…

Only 130 pieces are to be produced… A vintage style crystal perfume bottle with an atomizer… it is more than a perfume… it is a collector’s piece… so delicate and chique…

A candle with the same scent was developed in an gorgeous candle holder… which would make me pity to lit it… I know it would defeat the purpose but it is so beautiful that I would have no courage to touch…

I know that one should not buy things to keep but some things are just eternal and timeless… one does not own Lalique but hold for future generations… Don’t you agree?
