Lanvin celebrates 85th Anniversary of its Arpège perfume with a unique case

French fashion house Lanvin has always prided itself on exclusivity and its niche audience. To mark the 85th Anniversary of its widely popular Arpège perfume, the brand has launched a lust-worthy minaudière case worth a whopping $3040! This much talked about holding case, which will be available in Lanvin boutiques and website from February 2013, is in the form of a polished, black enamel minaudière adorned with a braided snakelike gold handle, in which rests the iconic scent.

The perfume was created in 1927 by André Fraysse on a special request from Jeanne Lanvin to celebrate her daughter Marie-Blanche’s 30th birthday. The perfume boasts notes of rose, jasmine, and ylang-ylang, warmed with vanilla.
