Baccarat Crystal Flacons Exclusively at London Perfume House

Luxury Fragrances: A special edition of perfume in three Baccarat Crystal flacons is to go on sale exclusively in the UK at the Roja Dove Haute Parfumerie in Harrods, London. The rare impressive presentation embodies the finest English and French craftsmanship and encapsulates 175 years of perfume history.

English company Grossmith has worked with Maison Baccarat to find and re-use the original moulds, first commissioned in 1919 for its ‘Serie de Luxe’ range. Each flacon is hand-blown and etched with pure gold in a contemporary interpretation of original Grossmith designs, replacing the circular gold ‘medailles’ featured on the 1919 originals.

Each flacon is individually numbered and bears both the Baccarat estampille and Grossmith monogram on its base. The three fragrances are Hasu-no-Hana (1888), created to evoke the Japanese Lotus Lily, Shem-el-Nessim (1906), an Arabian-inspired perfume named after an Egyptian springtime festival and Phul-Nana (1891), described as a bouquet of India’s choicest flowers.

The newly-made Baccarat flacons are contained in a sumptuous hand-crafted wooden ‘coffret’, finished in six layers of white piano lacquer, lined in midnight blue velvet and opened with a golden key.

The Baccarat presentation will be available to order, with a three-month delivery time, priced at £6,000 for a single presentation and the triple at £18,000.
