A tale of tones: Luxurylaunches picks its favorite artisan perfumes

penhaligon-fragrances-the-nina-frydlender-creazioni3. Penhaligon’s fragrances by the Nina Frydlender Creazioni
And if you didn’t already love Penhaligon’s Artemisia, Blenheim Bouquet, Endymion, Lily of the Valley, Malabah and Sartorial scents, then this should give you reason enough. Inspired by the iconic fragrances, artist Nina Frydlender Creazioni sought to draw the name of each without listing the bottle. Result? Delightful little vials, resembling pop art figurines that beg to be bought and stowed away for posterity. Each 500ml bottle has been priced at $1,060.

If you’d like to see a magnificent piece with metal embroidery, we’d tell you, why just see it if you can own it? And the fruity-Patchouli potion within it! With La Petite Robe Noire’s charismatic inverted heart top, Baccarat combines a sleek black crystal structure and Atelier Macon & Lesquoy’s bouquet of cannetille flowers. While the art form of embroidering with tiny metal spiral threads takes over ten years to master, we’d say you shouldn’t wait before getting your hands on one of the fragrance’s 40 numbered editions. The 250ml bottle is priced at $1,500.

And Guerlain’s back, at the top of the list no less, with the new release vintage edition Coque d’Or courtesy Maison Baccarat once again. Their tie this time (pun intended), brings us to a rather luxurious, gold painted and gold and silk embellished collectible. A nod to the archetypal male accessory Russian ballet creator Serge Diaghilev wore at his soirees, the chypre creation containing notes of bergamot, rose and patchouli is perfectly suited to both men and women. With only 29 190ml bottles available worldwide, perfume is priced at over $21,000.
