An article in the Sunday Times explores the trends in perfumery and the return to luxury. Among the most luxurious fragrances the author names the newest Lalique Le Parfum, “sensual white blossoms on top of a luxurious, soft base,” Armani Privé collection, Hermès Hermessence range, and The Different Company. Last, but not least is Clive Christian No. 1. Launched in a Baccarat crystal bottle decorated with an 18ct-gold collar, with a 5ct brilliant-cut diamond, it is going to be available for £115,000. This makes JAR fragrances seem like a bargain.
