Christmas is the time to indulge in designer wear, haute gourmet, over the top décor as well as most exclusive gifts. Lancôme is all set to help us smell the best too by unveiling the limited edition La vie est belle L’édition Féérique.
The master perfumer is celebrating the Holidays by launching this uber-luxurious casing of it one of its most-sought-after delicate, addictive scent. Lancôme has joined hands with Baccarat and Reuge to design an exceptional falcon for the La vie est belle fragrance. Limited to just 15 pieces, this masterpiece is a must-gift to a woman who has everything this Christmas. Truly a collector’s item, the L’Édition Féerique is the most magnificent tribute to one of the best selling women’s fragrance. The core element of the product remains unchanged, the fragrance is exceptionally concentrated with natural raw materials combining distinct notes of iris and jasmine with caramelized undertones of praline.
Baccarat plays its role by designing a crystal chandelier inside each music box. The eye-catching chandelier fills the top of the glass case and is shaped out of 133 crystal drops and 48 crystal tubes. The bottle also sits on dazzling loose crystals.
Tantalizing all senses equally, it is fitted with handcrafted music box by Reuge exclusively created for this edition. At the press of a button, it churns out 144 crystal-clear notes ring out one after the other. Beckoning the theme music from the La Vie est Belle campaign featuring Julia Roberts, the box plays “Beautiful Days” by Venus.
It is mesmerizing to watch purple LED light dance across the crystal drops as the perfume turntable revolves. Reflecting the endless effects of light from the glass walls on the bottle surrounded by Swarovski crystals, the object is even more fascinating. The case is also covered with a metal plate with the name of the fragrance.
Available for $35,000 at Neiman Marcus, the La vie est belle L’édition Féérique renders a super-luxurious treat to olfactory, visual as well as auditory senses and finds its place as one of the most expensive Christmas gift of 2013.
