Bunch o’ limited edition collector bottles (and some other stuff) 2014, part 14

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 collector bottles from Lalique, Guerlain and Estee Lauder; a coffret from the newly reconstituted Le Galion line; a travel atomizer from Memo; and new packaging for Stella McCartney Stella, Boudicca Wode and the Lush fragrances.

2015 Lalique de Lalique

From Lalique, the 2015 limited edition collector bottle of Lalique de Lalique. (You can find links to the yearly bottles going back to 2006 at the Lalique page under Perfume Houses). For 2015: "Based on René Lalique’s 1910 design, the Petites Feuilles (little leaves), the 2015 edition is adorned with a lavish plumage that covers the body and softly rounded shoulders of the bottle, while the stopper features a motif designed by Lalique for the Geneviève powder box in 1920."

La Petite Robe Noire Couture collector bottle

From Guerlain, a new limited edition bottle of La Petite Robe Noire Couture Eau de Parfum. At Sephora in France, in 50 ml.

 

Estee Lauder Precious Jewels Perfume Compact

From Estee Lauder, the Precious Jewels Perfume Compact: "You'll treasure this dazzling jewelry box. Open the compact to find Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia in long-lasting solid perfume." $250 at Neiman Marcus.

 

Le Galion coffret

From Le Galion, a limited edition coffret with a purse spray and 7.5 ml refills of all nine of the line's relaunched fragrances. At Colette in France, $156 without tax.

 

Memo leather travel atomizer

From French niche line Memo, a travel atomizer set including a leather case (€196) and sets of three 10 ml refills (€95 - €114). (via vogue.fr)

 

2014 packaging Stella by Stella McCartney

The new packaging for Stella McCartney's first fragrance, Stella (the juice is reportedly unchanged). Available in 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum.

 

Boudicca Wode

And new packaging for Boudicca Wode, which used to be sold in something that looked like a can of spray paint (and I believe that the version that sprayed blue is discontinued). In 50 ml Eau de Parfum, also at Colette in France.

 

Lush Karma, new packaging 2014

You can still find the plain, utilitarian black bottles at the Lush USA site, but they've disappeared from Lush UK and are on their way out everywhere. The new, more fanciful packaging matches the more recent Gorilla Perfume releases; shown above is Karma.

    I’m not much of a bottle girl, but that Lalique one is undeniably pretty! :)

    • Robin says:

      Ditto! I liked last year’s too.

    • CM says:

      I agree – it’s a pretty pretty bottle. Is the scent as good as the bottle?

  2. lucasai says:

    I would love that travel set of Memo Italian Leather. I just checked their website and it says that coffrets and travel sets are coming soon. Will be checking them out soon!

    • Robin says:

      It’s gorgeous, but boy is that leather case expensive!

      • lucasai says:

        Yes! At first I was like wow, great! Then I noticed that the leather case has its own price. Why do these lovely sets always have the case individually?

        • Robin says:

          I assumed that leather case comes with scent, but you know, maybe it doesn’t…

          • lucasai says:

            If that leather case would come with a scent (one 10ml vial I suppose) then I might be in trouble :P

          • des esseintes says:

            It’s a set ‘including’ a leather case, so if they aren’t really evil people, my logic tellsm me the the three vials are included and the lower priced are for refills. I’m glad I don’t like the colour of the leather or I’d be in trouble indeed.

          • Robin says:

            Well, “including” is my wording, and now I’m not sure I understood the source…so am not swearing to anything.

  3. Merlin says:

    I wonder if the new Karma has a spray or whether its a dropper? I know I’m a minority but I quite like the plain black bottles: they look ugly in pictures but the bottle (which I assume is glass) feels like cold stone in my hand!

    • Robin says:

      I did not mind the black glass so much. These might be more fun? Will have to wait to see what sizes are available when they’re done, but right now seems like almost everything at Lush UK is in a 10 ml (definitely spray, you can see it in the image) and 30 ml (not positive but would think it’s a spray). Yay for 10 ml!

      Breath of God, though, is in a dropper bottle, and Dirty is still in that black spray thing that looks like Windex.

    • CM says:

      I like the black bottles, but they are not printed with the scent on the bottle…at least mine isn’t. My Imogen Rose has this paper tag that sits on top around the sprayer. If you lose the tag then you really don’t know what you’ve got.

      • Kelly says:

        I know, so annoying! I also don’t mind the black bottles, but up against my other lovely bottles, it looks fairly ugly and utilitarian and then I never want to wear it. The power of suggestion…well, my own!

    Another pretty Lalique bottle. They have lots of experience producing pretty bottles: https://www.google.com/search?q=lalique+bottles&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=H9raU4CYBsP6oAT4vYHQAg&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAg&biw=1093&bih=498. Dreamy sigh …
