Bunch o’ limited edition collector bottles 2014, part 3

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. Today's post includes special editions from Roberto Cavalli, Acqua di Parma, Guerlain, Hermès and Giorgio Armani.

Roberto Cavalli Nero Assoluto Exclusive Edition

From Roberto Cavalli, the Nero Assoluto Exclusive Edition celebrating the opening of the brand's new boutique in Milan, "a luminous treasure thanks to the application of 2.500 gold and black Swarovski crystals which cover the surface of the bottle." (via Roberto Cavalli at Facebook)


Acqua di Parma Gelsomino Nobile collector

From Acqua di Parma, a collector bottle of Gelsomino Nobile: "A unique limited edition item that celebrates the refinement of Acqua di Parma Gelsomino Nobile. The bottle is adorned with an elegant interpretation of the jasmine flower. Handcrafted by skilled artisans in Tuscany, the 24-karat gold decoration is created with silkscreen. Each petal is hand-engraved with delicate craftsmanship and attention to detail. A unique masterpiece of craftsmanship and elegance, this bottle is perfectly suited for a new and exclusive collector's item." $198 for 100 ml Eau de Parfum at Neiman Marcus.


Guerlain Insolence Crazy Touch

From Guerlain, Insolence in the Crazy Touch edition: "This year, the Insolence bottle flaunts an extravagant look. A whirlwind of bold and exuberant pink spots." In 50 ml Eau de Toilette. (via guerlain)


Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Abeille

Also from Guerlain, La Petite Robe Noire in the brand's iconic bee bottle. In 250 ml Eau de Toilette, €251 at Nocibe in France.

  1. I am finding that the pink bee bottle is hard to resist..so very delightfully girly-girl.

    • Robin says:

      I like it better than the original bottle, I think.

    • Aria says:

      It IS the sweetest out of the bunch I think (though the Insolence bottle is pretty neat too). If only I liked the juice that was coming in it better.

  2. Thalia says:

    That polka-dot Insolence bottle is so cute it causes me actual pain — and I don’t even like pink bottles!

    • Robin says:

      It is cute. Wish they’d done a new juice to match…I think they’ve probably given up on Insolence though, there hasn’t been a new one in awhile.

  3. sweetgrass says:

    Hm.. that Insolence bottle is awfully cute. Kinda makes me want to try Insolence again and see if I like it any better. :P

  4. Omega says:

    The only one I like is the AdP.

  5. galbanumgal says:

    The Hermes is nice, but think it would look better with a celadon green cap instead.
