I haven’t tried this perfume, so it appears here mostly on the merit of its pretty, pretty bottle. I mean, seriously, lookit the pretty bottle! It makes me want to buy it, and then buy one of those old-fashioned dressing tables so I could scatter it with pretty little perfume bottles in lots of different colours. Or at least it did, until I discovered it costs $800. Eight. Hundred. Dollars. Gulp.
This line is by Lalique, and its inspired by the René Lalique"Epines"collection of 1920, which explains the old-fashioned flacon. It contains top notes of blackberry leaves, blackcurrant, and raspberry, middle notes of white lily, peony, and wild rose and base notes of musk, sensual wood, and vanilla.
