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.
From Lalique, the 2013 collector’s edition of Lalique de Lalique: “For this 2013 Limited Edition Crystal Libellule, the bottle showcases an extraordinary dragonfly cloaked in black. The generously sculpted clear bottle is decorated with delicately hand—polished concentric circles, repeated waves of water on which the body of the beautiful dragonfly rests, plunging into the delicious fragrant nectar. A double pair of gracefully outstretched wings draws on an alternating interplay of shine and matte crystal. This entire satin finishing, paired with the geometry of the wings creates a veil of crystal in the Art Deco style.” $1800 for 100 ml Extrait de Parfum at Neiman Marcus.
From Giorgio Armani, a special collector edition of his first fragrance (from 1982) in a bottle by La Cristallerie Saint Louis, inspired by the original Pierre Dinand design. One hundred numbered editions, two of which can reportedly be found at Heathrow’s T5 terminal “ in a dedicated area close to the Armani/Privé wall”, £6460.

From Clinique, a new bottle for Happy in Bloom: “Happy in Bloom celebrates the spirit of spring, offering a fresh, crisp floral scent that combines key notes of yellow plum, a cocktail of frozen fruit, white freesia and mimosa, plus a whisper of transparent amber and white wood.” $48 at Dillard’s.
From Jean Paul Gaultier, another in the long series of collector editions of Classique. In 100 ml Eau de Toilette, available at Douglas in Austria.
