LOUIS VUITTON UNVEILS FLACON D'EXCEPTION
Louis Vuitton presents the new Flacon d’Exception in a limited edition of 200 numbered one-of-a-kind pieces designed by Marc Newson in precious Baccarat crystal..
An original masterpiece designed for connoisseurs, the Flacon d’Exception limited to just 200 bottles sits on a leather base stamped with the Maison’s logo and is showcased under a glass dome like a work of art. This monumental bottle will house three of the Maison’s emblematic fragrances composed by Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud: Rose des Vents, an exceptional trio of roses; Matière Noire, a true olfactory kaleidoscope blending Laos agarwood with patchouli; and L’Immensité, pairing the crackle of ginger with the bitterness of grapefruit.
" For the Flacon d'Exception, I wanted to create something whimsical and fun that was also very functional. It is scaled to a sculptural dimension and is inspired by vintage fragrance displays." Marc Newson
To create the €15,000 masterpiece Marc Newson turned to Baccarat glassware, which boasts 250 years of history and experience. Inspired by ancient glass blowing techniques, the master glassmakers made the bottle using the most precious glass. The black glass stopper features the LV Circle logo in hand-painted gold enamel, adding an exquisite touch. The bottle rests majestically on a base of natural leather made in the Louis Vuitton workshops, whose delicate and sensitive leather takes on a unique amber-hued patina.
This Exceptional Bottle will be available from November 4, 2021 in a limited and numbered edition in a selection of Louis Vuitton stores.
