Reed Krakoff RK Limited Edition perfume

Recently launched Coach-owned accessories brand Reed Krakoff* will debut their first fragrance next month. RK Limited Edition, made under arrangements with Estée Lauder, will be sold in one of four limited edition bottles hand-blown in Murano, Italy.

The fragrance features notes of black pepper, aldehydes, neroli, hyacinth, peony, violet leaf, vetiver and orris.

Reed Krakoff RK Limited Edition is available now for pre-order at the Reed Krakoff website, $695 for some unknown amount of Eau de Parfum. The customer can select the bottle color (nude, silver-fleck, grey or clear); the package also includes 2 refills of the scent and a funnel. 100 bottles were made in each color.

    Ouch!! I wouldn’t go anywhere near sampling this, nice as it sounds.

    • Robin says:

      Oh, I would!

      • Absolute Scentualist says:

        It isn’t that it doesn’t sound perfectly wonderful. It does and has lots of notes I adore, as I’m a sucker for a well made chypre. But knowing my luck, I’d fall head over heels for it and can’t see justifying a purchase like that. Even a split seems like it’d cost an arm and a leg.

        • Robin says:

          I fall head over heels so rarely that I’m not worried, I guess — just curious.

  2. Tara says:

    Love those bottles!! I want to silver-fleck one…

    • Tara says:

      However, who pre-buys something for $695 without having any idea of what it smells like no matter how much you love the bottle ?

      • Robin says:

        Someone who needs a “gift to impress”.

        • boojum says:

          I’d like to be impressed, please! :D Love those bottles; they’re beautiful.

          • Tara says:

            I too wish someone wanted to “impress” me!!!

      • killerfumes says:

        True! I can’t even imagine…

      • 50_Roses says:

        Maybe someone who would pay $695 for the bottle alone as a decorative item, and considers the perfume a bonus?

  3. fluffypuppy says:

    The bottles remind me of those little bottles of model car paint you buy in hobby stores.

  4. mals86 says:

    Yes, yes, pretty bottles. They’d better be, at that price point!

    • Robin says:

      They’d be really stunning on a dresser if you had all 4.

  5. Sniffit says:

    Beautiful packaging. The fragrance may be lovely but most of us will never know.

  6. turbovivi says:

    Talking about vague… excellent packaging but good lord. I certainly won’t be spending that kind of money on “vague”.

  7. Dolly2 says:

    I will just use my sense of memory smell for the notes in this one.Oy!

  8. Tama says:

    I have to say those are pretty stunning. I like the nude color – rather unusual. The notes sound okay, too. I’ll probably never know, and hopefully this will all delete from my memory banks soon. Either that or I’ll find a sugar daddy in the next couple weeks who can indulge me.

  9. thenoseknows says:

    those bottles are UTTERLY BEAUTIFUL! I want the Nude or the Clear or the Blue! mostly the Clear… it’s so… Asceticly Beautiful! I have heard the fragrance smells absolutely WONDERFUL! really like an Old-School Guerlain Fragrance was how the person described it! :-) I AM DYING to perhaps buy a bottle for my mum! HOPEFULLY, Mr. Krakoff will eventually release a more, REASONABLY priced version in NON-Murano Glass bottles… although from the website text, i doubt that he will…. seems he wants something Luxurious and Limited… which i understand… but i still want to smell it myself! LOL
