Bunch o’ limited edition collector bottles 2013, part 1

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.

Made in Italy of resin molded in the shape of the Arpège bottle, with gold-tone hardware, chain handle and push-button closure.

    Darn, I don’t have an extra four grand lying around for that Arpege minaudiere, but it is pretty. I can’t tell – is the perfume included, or is the bottle just for illustrative purposes?

    • Robin says:

      VERY pretty — I have no use for it either, and I want one. I read about it in 4 different places and none of them (including BG) mention the perfume, so I’m guessing you have to buy your own :-)

      • Marjorie Rose says:

        Wait, what? Really?! Four grand and you don’t get the scent with it? If I were a wealthy diva, I’d be outraged!

        • Robin says:

          Ha…if you were a wealthy diva you’d just buy your own, right?

  2. Ok, so I was dissing Lanvin yesterday, but…… that’s a nice package. Won’t be joining my collection, but it’s nice.

    Now, bring back My Sin.

    • Robin says:

      It’s gorgeous, but useless — for me, anyway. It is a shame about My Sin.

  3. RusticDove says:

    The Lanvin minaudière doesn’t contain a bottle of Arpège? Oh well forget it then. ;-)

  4. Corkie says:

    STILL searching for the replacement of Her Majesty’s Rose and Violet Rose fragrances from Victoria’s Secret. Sooooo many years …. sooooo sad. : (

    Wow that Lanvin is stunning.
