Lalique Adds Three New Fragrances to the Les Compositions Parfumees CollectionFFOL Editor 1
Continuing the permanent homage to René Lalique and his iconic designs in jewelry and crystal, the Lalique perfume brand is now releasing three new fragrances added to the existing Les Compositions Parfumées Collection, started in 2015. The new editions are called Electric Purple, Pink Paradise and Sweet Amber.
Dressed in the delicate pink, purple and amber palette of the three new scents, the streamlined form of Les Compositions Parfumées' signature bottle (also used in the masculine couple Hommage a l'Homme and Hommage a l'Homme Voyageur) takes on a playful femininity. Inspired by René Lalique’s mythical Duncan collection, designed in 1931, the elegant satin-finished Art Deco flacon is 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 bottle by a colored cord. The flacon is presented in a luxurious white coffret with a magnetic clasp, lined in white padded fabric. It is protected by a colored sleeve, matching the nuance of the fragrance, inscribed with its name on a white label.

"I conceived Pink Paradise in a flight of poetry. I wanted to find a new way of expressing mineral and woody notes. To make them limpid, yet as downy as a cloud. To me, this fragrance evokes a strong, cheerful, kind personality." – Ane Ayo, perfumer.
Notes: citrus, musk, heliotrope, sea breeze, pepper, sand, amber, sandalwood, Iso e Super.
"With Electric Purple, I wanted to pay homage to René Lalique’s modernity by pushing back boundaries. Inspired by the idea of color fusions, I designed electric contrasts between purple berries, green leaves and texturized musks. It's a scent for a woman who wants a strong signature!" – Nathalie Lorson, perfumer.
Notes: boysenberry, grapefruit, blackcurrant, mint, violet leaves, moss and patchouli.
"In Sweet Amber, I envisioned a new approach of gourmand notes, drawn from orange blossom, a symbol of pure femininity. I made it as light and airy, yet as addictive as possible. I see the woman who wears this as very sensitive, yet powerful and free." – Philippe Romano, perfumer.
Notes: anise, jasmine, tuberose, orange blossom, vanilla and galaxolide.
The new fragrances from the collection Les Compositions Parfumées come in 100ml bottles. They are eaux de parfum and they will be on the market in September, for the price of 200 Euros each.
