Fragrance Meets Design in a timeless creation by Marc Newson.
Presented in a one-liter perfume bottle made of luxurious Baccarat crystal, the Flacon d’Exception designed by Marc Newson for Les Parfums Louis Vuitton is a true example of savoir-faire and fine craftsmanship. Boasting 250 years of history and expertise, Baccarat’s Master Glassmakers fabricated the bottle using the most precious crystal, drawing on age-old glass-blowing techniques.
Adding a sculptural dimension that takes inspiration from vintage fragrance displays, the perfume bottle rests majestically on a natural leather base manufactured in Louis Vuitton’s workshops.
Louis Vuitton Les Parfums’ new Flacon d’Exception in a limited edition of 200 numbered one-of-a-kind pieces.
Louis Vuitton has always striven to create objects that last and can be passed down from generation to generation. For the first time, Les Parfums Louis Vuitton are presented in a one-liter bottle made of Baccarat crystal. This monumental bottle will house three of the Maison’s emblematic fragrances composed by Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud: Rose des Vents, an exceptional trio of roses; Matière Noire perfume, a true olfactory kaleidoscope blending Laos agarwood with patchouli; and L’Immensité fragrance, pairing the crackle of ginger with the bitterness of grapefruit.
“For the Flacon d’Exception, I wanted to create something whimsical and fun that’s also very functional. It’s scaled up to a sculptural dimension and takes inspiration from vintage fragrance displays.” – designer Marc Newson.
To magnify Marc Newson’s hand-crafted design, Louis Vuitton turned to Baccarat crystalworks, which boasts 250 years of history and expertise. Drawing on age-old glassblowing techniques, Master Glassmakers fabricated the bottle using the most precious crystal. The black crystal cap features the LV Circle logo in hand-painted gold enamel, adding an exquisite touch. The bottle rests majestically on a natural leather base manufactured in Louis Vuitton’s workshops, whose delicate and sensitive leather acquires a unique, amber-toned patina.
