    Default Designer fragrance being sold in $1,500 Matisse bottles

    Designer fragrance being sold in $1,500 Matisse bottles

    What would you do if you were the grandson of the founder of luxury conglomerate LVMH? If you were Kilian Hennessy, you’d make a fragrance, then enlist a descendant of painter Henri Matisse to design the bottles.

    By Kilian fragrances, which debuted at Saks at South Coast Plaza in August, is scheduled to come out with new $1,500 bottles painted by Sophie Matisse, the great-grandaughter of Henri, on Wednesday. Only 50 were made, they are all different, and each is numbered.

    Fifteen of the bottles will be carried by Saks at South Coast Plaza. They may be filled with any of By Kilian’s six perfumes at no additional cost.

    Regular 1.7 oz. refillable bottles are $225, refills cost $115 and candles run $85. The bottles come in unique boxes with a lock and key.

    By Kilian perfumes each carry two names. They are:

    * Beyond Love (prohibited)
    * Love (don’t be shy)
    * A Taste of Heaven (absinthe verte)
    * Liaisons Dangereuses (typical me)
    * Cruel Intentions (tempt me)
    * Straight to Heaven (white cristal)

    Kilian Hennessy, whose grandfather with the same name created Hennessy cognac, is expected to make a personal appearance at Saks at South Coast Plaza in November.

    This is as ridiculous as the Dior Cell Phone.

    While not in the realm of the possible for 99.99% of the population, it would be nice to be able to afford such a thing (the custom bottles, not the Dior phone). The high-end phone thing is not new.... Neimans has had multi-thousand dollar custom phones on and off for years. I think there was a Louis Vitton phone a while back.

    Also - has anyone seen the new $2200 Ralph Lauren fragrance? Actually, the fragrance price is normal, the bottle is $2100. Read this

    A little quote (from nowsmellthis):

    Love, Ralph Lauren is available in the limited edition bottle shown (15 ml Eau de Parfum, featuring a 24 karat, hand-painted gold cap with a 47-carat amethyst and a lucite stand, $2200) now for pre-order at Neiman Marcus. Later this year it will also be available in 15 ml Parfum (clear cap, $600) and 3 sizes of Eau de Parfum with garnet-colored caps ($75-$135). (first quote via neimanmarcus, second quote and additional information via wmagazine)

    Cool Re: Designer fragrance being sold in $1,500 Matisse bottles

    A 'descendant of Matisse' I love that. What a racket. I wonder if he puts that on his business cards.
