British Carmaker Puts £3,000 Price On Latest Scent
British carmaker Bentley is showing no signs of stepping away from its luxury tag, teaming up with French crystal manufacturer Lalique on its most expensive fragrance to date.
Lalique for Bentley Blue Crystal Edition, a follow-up to the brand’s 2013 release, comes with an RRP in excess of £3,000.
The square base bottle, made from deep blue crystal, is decorated with the iconic Flying B usually found on the front of the automobile firm’s cars.
Perfumer Mylène Alran was brought back for the second fragrance. The Frenchman has previously created scents for the likes of Dunhill, Bottega Veneta and Burberry.
The woody product has a vetiver base, with top notes of pink peppercorns and juniper berries on a base of ambergris, cedar wood and frankincense.
Lalique for Bentley Blue Crystal Edition has been produced in a limited run of 499 bottles. Each is individually numbered and presented in a wooden box lined with a piano black veneer and grey leather.
The crystal company was founded by the late René Lalique, whose designs gained popularity in the 1920s.
Despite the high price tag, Bentley has released a more affordable option in recent months. The firm’s Bentley For Men Absolute Eau De Parfum launched in May, costing just £110.
The Lalique for Bentley Blue Crystal Edition fragrance is set to launch at Lalique’s London store at the end of August, before becoming available in the International Crystal Room at Harrods from 1st October priced at £3,600 for 100ml.
