The bottle of this $13,500 Guerlain fragrance is made from recycled Swarovski crystals

Swiss Designer Kevin Germanier is known for creating desirability with sustainable materials. His latest work for French perfume House Guerlain treads on the same lines and beams of exclusivity and class like no other.

We’re talking about the artist’s collaboration for a very limited-edition bottle that comes decked in a myriad of discarded Swarovski crystals and accentuations created using unique embroidery techniques on silicone. The bottles are entirely crafted by hand using a couture-inspired technique, never before applied to a perfume bottle before.

Each of the hand-crafted pieces takes three hours to produce, with the bottle first being cleaned and prepared to allow the crystals to adhere to the glass. It then decked with a spontaneous gradient made from raspberry pink, powder pink, lavender, and green Swarovski crystals.

Finally, a silk thread is wrapped around the flacon’s neck by Guerlain’s Dames de Table, and it is fastened with a golden seal. The Bee Bottle as it is called holds La Cuvée Secrète, an eau de cologne with notes of bergamot, petitgrain and lavender. Only 11 decanters are currently available, each priced at $11,795 (approximately).

Commenting on the collaboration, Germanier, in a statement, said, “This collaboration is the perfect mix of heritage, Guerlain’s history, and the future.” We nod in agreement!
