The crystal bottle containing the Extrait de Parfum results from the rediscovery of a particularly complex technique, whose expertise the Lalique master glassmakers possess: pinching. This technique consists of pinching the crystal in the centre of the bottle so that the Extrait de Parfum is held solely around the bottle's circumference. Decorated with a motif of four women in long dresses, the heart of the bottle symbolizes the endless circle of time and is inspired by the "Rosaces figurines" pocket watch created by René Lalique in 1905. The iconic stopper inspired by the Langeais collection completes the adornment of Satine's Crystal Edition, a skillful blend of history and modernity, art and craftsmanship.
A pink satin ribbon, Satine's adornment of choice, graces the neck of the bottle. Finally, there is the crucial step of selection, then numbering and the Lalique signature. This precious bottle holds the Extrait de Parfum, whose accord heightens gardenia and heliotrope's floral sphere with black pepper. The textured sphere cloaks tonka bean in a deeply sensual ambergris note. The woody sphere, worked in an "overdose", amplifies the composition's gourmand trail and power.
