British luxury automaker Bentley has teamed up once again with French crystal manufacturer Lalique on its most expensive fragrance to date. An overwhelming essence of masculinity, the Lalique for Bentley Blue Crystal Edition is a follow-up to the brand’s Lalique for Bentley Crystal Edition series that started last year. The Blue Crystal edition costs around $5,700, which is still a fraction of Bentley’s most modestly priced Continental GT Coupe.
Lalique for Bentley Blue Crystal Edition is an artistic blend of midnight-blue crystal, sublime fragrance and luxurious design. The eau de parfum itself is an elixir of fine woody notes and exquisite leather, composed by Mylène Alran from the French perfume house Robertet, who also created the fragrance for the first edition. The woody heart notes is distinguished by white cedar wood and patchouli, enhanced with rare papyrus essence to give the composition its authentically masculine, charismatic and luxurious character. The base notes contain mellifluous amber and musk, which together create a timelessly sensual aura.
The bespoke fragrance comes in a 40cl flacon, made from deep blue crystal and is decorated with the iconic Bentley mascot ‘Flying B’ and the Bentley knurling on the stopper. The dynamic of its wings, wrought in gleaming crystal, epitomizes timeless beauty while evoking lightness, speed and elegance.
Only 499 bottles have been produced for the Lalique for Bentley Blue Crystal Edition and will be available at Harrods from next month.
